Power cable/supply nearly caught fire...

Xbox overheated badly last night, power cord/supply melted down and nearly caught fire (setting off smoke alarms) while kids were playing --- they thought I was burning something!  Will Xbox work with replacment cord/power supply; if do where do I find one?  Thx :)

You can buy a replacement power supply from places such as Gamestop, however, your Xbox may be fried if it got hot enough to melt the power supply.

Make sure you buy compatible power supply though. If you have a newer FAT 360, get the smaller power brick, but if it's over a year old, get the larger brick. The larger brick will work with any console, but the small brick will only work with Jasper motherboards (the newest "fat" 360s).

If you have a slim, I'm guessing they have their own specific power supply.

If your cable melted you need to contact Xbox support by phone. It is not suggested to use the console until after they have had you send it in so they can take a look at it. If you are in the U.S the number for Xbox support is 1-800-469-9269
