What did you open it for? Check for any damage to the motherboard, and any metal/solder that might be shorting it out. The power supply is turning red to protect the console, so it might not be permenantaly damaged.

I open it after everyone refuse to fix. I check the mother board and I didnt see any damage.Is there any way I can track the power through the board to see where it might have problems. or know of someone I can take it to, that can fix it, I spent 400 on it and only played it fr two months.

mrhyde1018,

Chris meant what did you open it for before sending it back to Microsoft. They refused to fix it for you because it seems like they felt like you opened it before sending it to them. Is this the case?

No power is normally caused by either a bad Mosfet or a bridged connection. In the traditional xbox 360, if you have no power due to a bad Mosfet (power regulator), it will turn on and red ring, reading codes 0001,0002, or 0003. I am not sure how slim error codes work so I couldn't say for sure the source of your problem.. but if you hadn't opened it before I would say check inside of the USB ports and make sure nothing in them is bridged.. also look for bridged connections on the motherboard. Other than that, you'd have to check each mosfet for correct power output and replace the ones that are bad and hopefully that would fix it.

Have you trace the power (electricity) through each step? Meaning from the plug connection forward? I do agree to check the Mosfet first. Also make a visual check off all capacitors... Good luck!

Had a problem with my 360 slim. Green power dot no rings. Fan going but what caught my eye was the hdd wasn't spinning up. So I found it wasn't (because of a fall perhaps) seated inside properly. Upon opening and taking it out, I switched it on without it in and bingo. It finally worked. Stuck the drive back in and everything was back to normal. Another cause can be a bent usb inner flange in the socket making contact (same symptoms). Good luck. Hope it helps
