I have an Xbox 360 Elite console, and I recently discovered that I had inadvertently placed the console over part of the power cable (I am not certain for how long). I of course repositioned the console so that it is no longer over the cable. However, I noticed that a small crease was left on the part of the cable that was underneath the console. The crease itself is small, and is perceptible only to the touch; I do not think it is visible.
The power supply unit is functioning properly, and the cable itself is not split (i.e., I cannot see any of the parts inside). However, I am concerned about whether I might have an issue at some point down the line with the cable- specifically, with the crease that was left over on the cable. Is it possible that the crease on the cable could ever expand/widen/weaken/wear down from my using the console such that I could have an issue?
Sorry if this seems like an overly worrisome concern, but I am not an electrician and would like any insight/guidance anyone could offer. Of course, I would like to avoid paying $35.00 for a new power cable if I can.
