Xbox 360 wont work overseas. What to do?

I brought my Xbox 360 kinect from New Zealand over to America. I have bought a wall adapter for the power plug. The colour cords go into the tv perfectly. But when i try to turn the xbox on, it doesnt work. Any solutions please?

So all you bought was the wall adapter to change the style of the plug? If that's the case you're going to need to buy an American power brick. Their mains power operates at a different voltage and frequency, so just changing the plug won't do anything. You can still use the same console, just use a local power brick. Also keep in mind that games you buy in America may not work with your console due to region locking.

I'm not too sure where they're sold but gamestop would be a good starting point. At the very least they might be able to order one in for you. You might have better luck buying online, but try to buy brand new rather than second hand. Make sure that it's an official MS one as a third party power supply will void your warranty. Also make sure that the adaptor is the one for your model of xbox, as it was changed when MS started making the slim console. Good luck!
