    do you have anything else plugged into it - USB devices, Kinect, Satellite/Cable etc ?, - If so i would try unplugging all these devices & taking any discs out - and then switched it off for 10 mins and switching it back on.

    It's probably updating, or preparing to do so. Just leave it and wait. Although you say now that you've already done so, unplugging from the mains when it's doing this is generally a very bad idea.

    Try a hard reset by holding down the power button while the console is on the green load screen. The console will power off completely. The power back on

    Xbox takes years to turn on that's normal!

    I literally updated it yesterday

    Hold down the power button whilst the console is on and don't let go till it goes off. Then power back on.. This will normally fix most problems

    Tried this still wont work!

    'it turned on quite quickly' leads me to believe that you have Xbox 'instant on' activated.. this instant I feature destroyed the speed capabilities of my Xbox, turn this feature off if u use it. (Turn it off when it eventually turns on for you)

    Consider yourself lucky. I gave up with the previews after one bricked my console (they said it was coincidence!). Got it repaired but still out of action for a couple of weeks.
