I had my Xbox 1 since it was released, modded and all, been plugged in the whole time but only seldom used.
When I went today to turn it on it wouldn't.
The power brick seems fine, with a green light on it, tests fine with the red button (its the one with one green/one red button)
Can that be the issue or maybe the power receiver in the box itself has fried?
Can it just happen for no reason?
the brick thing isnt a power brick like the 360, its a cut off jobby.. they handed them out because the xboxes tended to burst in to flames because the PSU inside the xbox was a bit dodjy...
where the figure of 8 connector plugs in the back the only thing holding that in place in the xbox was some solder so they tended to get bent back and short out..
they fixed that with 2 rivets later on, but the 1st batch were given those circuit breakers. usualy sent out after a few had burst in to flames ..
You could try a diferebnt figure of 8 cable if you like..
However its most likley that some component on the PSU itself has fried out.. resistor/capasitor or more likley the fuze. It could also be that the connector has been bent which was a bit of an issue..
If you open up your xbox the power supply is on the right and its thing but runs the length of the xbox (front to back not left to right)
Check to see if there is any obvious damage to it.
this would be where i would start atleast.This post has been edited by shambles1980: Nov 13 2011, 06:11 PM
