When i was changing my LED from green to red i was half way done with half green and half red. i then checked to see if it was going okay. when i turned the xbox on it showed green and red and when i went to turn off my xbox i pulled the chord instead of pushing the power off button. Now to turn my xbox on and off i have to pull and push the power chord in and out. If anyone knows how to fix this i could really use some help. Thanks.

WJ is right. But if he's wrong (and I'll give 30:1 odds in his favor to any takers), try this:

Try a B-flat chord or a diminished minor chord and see if that helps... biggrin.gif

i think i know what your problem is...as i unplug/ed my box alot and i noticed that i after a while i had to wiggle the power cable around at times to get it to work...then just last night it not would come on at all, but iheard lil sparks flying around in there (when i moved the cable around) then suddenly nothing... no power....nothing damn!!!!!

i opened up the box and found the problem ..on some of the power supplies the solder that connects the the power jack to the traces on the board seem to also help hold the jack into place...piss poor design...well any ways fireup your soldering iron and you should have it fixed in about 20 secs minus the disasembly/assmebly of the case...

just resolder the 2 contact points...hell i poured the solder on to make it stonger then i am sure it ever was
