4 red rings is normal if you unplug the av cable. The console shuts off if you wiggle the metal pins in the USB port because they touch the side or each other and short to ground.
Get a needle nose pliers and grab each of those pins one by one and twist them/rock them back and forth until they snap off at the base. Or use a small flat head screwdriver to position them so they are not touching any other metal or each other.
Please do all of that with your console off. It's low voltage but it is still voltage.
THAT. WORKED. FLAWLESSLY!
One quick question, is there anyway of salvaging that usb port? Or is it a goner? I would hate to think I can only put 1 wired controllers in
O well, at least the thing works!!!
ONCE AGAIN, THANKS!!

If your brave enough you could take the xbox apart pull the board from the cage and if you have some skills with a soldering iron you could remove the port all together and put in a new on from another xbox. But you do need some skills and a decent iron.
Thanks! It seems easy enough.. I'll look around online to see if they sell those parts
