4 red rings

Okay i'm going to try and explain what happened as best as possible. We had a thunderstorm here tonight,  lightning struck and the bright yellow light on the little box that plugs into the back of the xbox started blinking. It also sounded like something popped in there when the lightning struck. My xbox wouldn't turned on so I tried plugging my xbox into my brothers box and the four red rings showed up. I know everything is plugged in properly I just think that the component that the plug goes into was fried along with the box. Any suggestions? My brother also tried to turn his on and has 3 red rings. So i'm assuming that the lightning strike hit the house and fried the xbox's.

Hey Assassin, Have you tried unplugging the power supply for a while from the wall and letting it sit so that it may reset.. I have experienced the same issue with the power supply for the Xbox 360 S. Also I noticed that you didn't note which Xbox 360 console you are having this issue with. The older Xbox 360 (white) or the new Xbox 360 S (Black). If you could provide more on which console it is trouble shooting the issue will be a little easier.

I have the older white pro console. I think the power supply is done because the light keeps blinking and it's making a clicking noise. The xbox won't even turn on

Hey xRIP Assassinx! Have you tried plugging the power supply into an alternate outlet? One without a surge protector. If possible, would you be able to test your console with a friends power supply to see if your console turns on successfully? Let us know! Thanks!

yes i tried a different outlet and the light just keeps blinking. I also tried my brothers xbox because his power supply light was still solid after the storm. the xbox turned on but the 4 red rings came up. But i know everything was plugged in correctly. Then when we plugged back in my brothers xbox to his power supply and turned it on he had the 3 red rings. very crazy
