I cant work my Xbox 360!!!

Ok i cant believe im saying this (so embarresing)!! but i bought a 360 for my son from someone on here, thought i would try it while the little un's in bed and i cant get it to work, Could i be doing something wrong?? The bloke seemed really trustworthy so thats not my concern. Only thing that is worrying me is the right light going around the power button, or is that meant to be there??

Im so sorry for wasting anyone's time, is there an online manual or something? any help would be appreciated and rep left

Thank you, Angelsmummy =)

I don't have an Xbox, but you could try this link it has all the manuals http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/hardware/manuals/InstructionManuals.aspx:)

When you power it up, you have to press the xbox button on the controller for the console to recognise it and connect to it. when you've pressed that, it should be ok

what are the lights doing, and what colour?

have you paired the controller with the console? :?

what colour's the ring?

If its red then it might be a cause for concern (Red Ring of Death)

If its green then it might be searching for a controller, try turning the xbox on by pressing and holding the xbox button on the controller which will turn the xbox on.

Push the circle ontop of the controller, and on the front of the xbox 360. It should pair together!
1 controller = 1 quarter of green light on the ring = Good to go/healthy! haha

make sure all wires are in properly only saying this i because when i was cleaning up behind xbox i dislodged wire when son turned it on he had red rings but after trying wires again works fine

1 - 3 or 4 red lights?
If its 4 red lights check the av cable is connected properly.

plug all the wires in, make sure they are secured. Then power it back on and it should be green. If not, im afraid its red ring of death, and you have been ripped off :x

Not a good sign at all!!!

Even if you get it working, the 3 red lights coming up usually means its on its way out.

Yep + 1. Not good news:cry:
#23
But if its going round in a circle it means its trying to pair with the controller isn't it?
#24
OK, put your fingers in the usb flap and pull the faceplate off the 360 and check to see if there is a silver or white sticker that says microsoft. Also on the back it will say a manufacture date, what date is it?

Good to see you too. Hope your well. OP, I think you should get on touch with the kind person who sold you the console. Looks like it has a major problem

So the lights are now green but it's still not working? Probably a daft question but you have got your TV set to the correct input haven't you?
