Cool XBOX 360 Slim Trick – How To Check Blown Plug Fuses

Ever wondered how to check for blown plug fuses using an XBOX 360 Slim? Well this trick is for you. Please Rate, Comment and Subscribe.

moved to ireland from the us and I brought my Xbox 360 console. I did not think there would be an issue with the power plugs because I have been using travel…

    It happend to me :(

    Everything else worked FINE with the travel adapter…. Why is that????

    Could be because we have 240V AC in the UK, as opposed to 115V AC.

    I’m Irish not American, and you call me an idiot, think before you spout off shit.

    thanks for the view : )

    Another no nothing response. The power a device uses is intrinsic to that device. Providing a higher wattage (at the correct voltage) will not damage it in any way, moron. In fact supplying a device with an insufficient current/power will more likely damage it.
    You were obviously asleep that day in school where they should have taught you the difference between voltage, current and power.
    Next time think twice before being a know it all @sshole.

    Most of the world uses 220v-240v you dumbfuck american. There are quite valid engineering reasons for this, but you morons are only allowed to play with low voltages probably because you’d kill yourselves on the higher and more efficient voltage.
    Go stick your tongue in a wall socket, moron.

    Typical parochial uneducated american. You think every where else in the world does everything the same as you. Wrong.
    And you have no idea about basic electricity. Those numbers on the back of the power supply are not just for show – they mean something, ignorance of real world physics should be a learning experience?
    Perhaps if you idiot americans didn’t just think you know everything, then this stupidity wouldn’t happen. It’s a shame it didn’t explode and blow your arm off.

    Europe uses 220-240v @ 50 Hz . It varies from country to country.

    However. most countries require that devices must tolerate +/- 10% of their voltage, so any device should work as low as 200v and up to 250-255v.

    Most computer power supply have active power factor circuits so they work with any voltage within 90-250v or so.

    That’s what you get for plugging a device designed for a low voltage range (100-127v) into a socket that gives 230-240v.
    The adapter just changes the plug type, it doesn’t convert the voltage at the socket to the lower 100-127v, or the AC frequency (50Hz compared to 60Hz in US). You can buy special converters for that.

    Granted, most devices these days are designed to work within 90v-260v, it’s partially Microsoft’s fault for saving .5-1$ using components rated for lower voltages.

    You showed a close up of the label on the power brick. It says “Input AC 100-127 V”. This is what you need to check before plugging in. Europe is 220-240 V.

    EU uses 250v us is 110 its twice restance in a us Xbox dumb ass

    Hey man did you get another cord? and if so, did your xbox still work?
    Mine did hte same as im in Australia and bought an American xbox. It smoked and blew its fuse but im just wondering if the xbox is still ok if you get another power cord?

    Will this cause my Xbox 360 slim fuck up or somthing like this? or my xbox will be fine?
