There's no RROD but it won't turn on at all. I've tried two seperate power bricks which both work on another console, but both turn red as soon as entered into the [broken] xbox 360. Is there any fix for this ?



Wrong wattage for your console i'd imagine.

i've always used the same power brick, although i will check on the second one


If the 2nd one is the same wattage then it sounds like your 360 needs to go in for repair.

Still sounds like a problem with the psu.

I seem to recall something about the power light on the power brick if there is a short in the console. But i'm not sure if that was a red light or if the light flashes. Have you tried repairing the console or has it been repaired before, I used to get said issue when the rrod fix bolts were tightened too much. You could try loosening the bolts a touch and try again.

Nevermind just googled and it is a orange light when a short exists.
