    that doesnt sound promising. especially if you only get 1 yr warrenty with the new one. but apparently, the short can be caused by turning the power supply round the other way on the end that goes into the back of the console.

    well that's just a design failure. if there is a specific way the plug needs to go in why would they make both sides the exact same so that it could be put in the wrong way. if that's true then microsoft is full of the dumbest most incompetent morons ever.

    The red light on a power brick is due to an electrical short on the xbox360.
    I have opened many 360s and found little links from theold style heatsinks causing shorts! Maybe theres a workers filling or glasses inside :angry:
