My kids' original X360 will not turn on. They played it for about 2 hours yesterday, turned it off, and now it won't turn back on. It was not hit, bumped, dropped, etc., and sits on an open shelf with plenty of air circulation. Do not just recommend and link to the support walkthrough, as it is useless without a 2nd power supply to try. I do not have access to another power supply (my kids' friends have the x360 slim).
- We've had the console since Christmas 2007, so it is very much out of warranty.
- It has been plugged into the same outlet for all these years and has worked fine.
- The power supply light has been orange for at least 4 months with no problems.
The console will not turn on from the controller, the power button, or the eject button. It acts as if there is no power getting to the console at all. The power supply light is a solid orange no matter what outlet I plug it into. There were no red lights on the light ring prior to turning it off -- never has had red lights in all these years. If I had access to a 2nd power supply, I would try that, but I don't.
Is there anything else I should look at?
