My symptoms are slightly different, as I hear / see / smell NOTHING when I attempt to power on my XB1 original, using a known good power supply. Other units I have repaired in the past exhibited these symptoms when the power button ribbon cable inside the top cover was disconnected. After checking this unit, however, the cable was correctly installed. Any thoughts?

Unplug the power supply til the orange light goes out. Before you plug it back in, blow hard through one of the holes in the power supply. Lots of dust will blow out. Keep doing this with the other holes until it is clear. Plug it back in. Turn on the power switch.
