My son was playing his xbox360 tonight, while he was on it it just went off, Does anyone know? does that mean it's stuffed! We took all the plugs out and let it cool down, he said he tried it about 2-3 hours later and theonly thing that happened was the small green light came on briefly then went out again!

Ok, the power brick light is orange then it goes red when it's all switched on, Does that means it's the power brick and not the xbox! Please let it be that! not mega bucks for the xbox!

Do any red lights light up on the console, it does sound like a power supply issue though if the power supply's light goes red

No red lights just on the power brick! When he pushes the on button on the xbox the really small circle come on gree quickly then goes out again, My elest son and his freind have just taken it to try it on his freinds one, so will see if it works that way, hopefully its the power Brick!

Looks like you need to get a new power brick, on the bottom of them it tells you what the coloured lights mean:

LED Status
Green: Power Good
Orange: Standby
Red: Fault Alarm

Check your power supply cables XboxSupportWizardPageDescription

Your power supply cables may not be fully secured.
Let's unplug and reconnect your power supply
