Not sure much can be done with this but I figured I wold give this a shot.
Turned on my 360 s for the first time in a bit to be met by a required system update. I accepted, it downloaded, and at about 95% during installation the system froze.
After about an hour of inactivity and no error code, against my better judgement, and without any other choice, I powered down the console.
Upon restarting, I have no audio or video, no controller sync, wireless or wired, and only the dead center green dot is illuminated.
Power brick is orange until the system is powered and then green once on.
I have ripped the update to a CD. Nothing. I have put the update onto a flash drive. Nothing. I have pulled the power with the disc tray open, partially closed it and restarted. Nothing.
The condition with no audio or video persists with either HDMI or analog connections.
I have tried all above steps with and without the hard drive installed.
If anyone has a suggestion other than call Microsoft, I'd be appreciate it, and gladly give it a try.
I should also note that this 360 s has not been modified in any way.
Needless to say I am less than happy about this as a required system update has more or less bricked my console. The idea spending a penny to remedy this issue is maddening.
Thanks in advance for any help!
