Red Light On Power Supply/box Help!!!!!

ok so when I put my power supply/box into the circuit or wall the light turns green, but the moment I put the end into my 360 the light turns red making it impossible to turn on my 360. I have tried it with 2 different walls and circuits and 2 different power supply/boxes. Does this mean my 360 is broke? Or What does it mean? + REP if ya help.

It means you need to call 18004MYXBOX and speak to them. Either your Xbox is going to need replacing, or more likely a new power supply.

call the support number..18004MYXBOX

its probably the power supply. do you have any friends that have the 360, try using there power supply. when i called up microsoft when my 360 was broken the first thing they asked me the color my power supply was showing. so therefore i assume that its your power supply rather than your 360 console. lets hope its not your console because thats just one big pain.

and ignore that kid that says get a ps3. ive played madden, cod4, ncaa football 08/09, nhl08 and others on both systems and there is no game on the ps3 that is better than on the 360. the only thing the ps3 has over the 360 right now is free online (which sucks), and blueray. oh yeah ofc socom as well.

This same problem has happened to me as well. Except this has happened to my HDMI cable. The light was green until I plugged in that cable. I had to get my xbox repaired but I think they just gave me a new one.

The problem with the light on the power supply is definitly in the console...not the supply, I have heard of lots of these...I don't know the exact problem with the console but every one I have heard of the console was just replaced.

It sounds like you either have a faulty power supply or a short in your XBOX 360.
