Xbox 360 - Noisy PSU?

9
Found 16th Oct 2017
Just picked up a pre-owned 360 Slim 250GB. It has a separate power block and it makes a loud noise like there's a fan inside it. Is this normal?

You can hear it really clearly it's that loud.

Never had an Xbox so I don't know. Thanks.

No, XBox 360 power bricks are normally silent.
Google suggests several people have had noisy bricks and there is a fan inside that can be cleaned/changed.
I guess that may be why it looked a bargain.
As you were buying from Facebook, did you not check it was working before handing over the cash?

I never said Facebook? But it was Gumtree. It was cheap so I bought it on a trust basis.

There are lots of people online saying they had noisy ones too and that this was normal. So I'm a little unsure?

Get a can of compressed air from poundland and give it a squirt inside to try and remove any dust etc.

I might unscrew it and blow air into the fan directly. See if that helps

Wil be full of dust. Common with consoles. My ps4 fan was wild to the point i couldnt hear the bloody tv. Traded it to game for the slim ps4 deal they had on here

This isn't the console though, it's the separate power supply.

I know mate but previous poster mentioned theres a fan inside it. Depending how cheap u got it might be worth getting new power supply.

You posted the the other day about Facebook.
Buying one from someone on facebook for £30 with a few games. 250GB. They say the console isn't banned from xbox live.

Anything else I should check? Seems too good to be true.
