Xbox 360 PSU question


Slow Ryders

Recommended Posts

So it seems the fan on my Xbox 360 s PSU has stopped working all together. It had been making terrible noises for a while now, and I'd taken it apart and cleaned it. Today I noticed it wasn't on at all. So I now just have it open with a fan blowing on it, and it does seem to work. My biggest worry is this though, when its unplugged is there anything that can still shock me if it gets touched for any reason? I noticed the tranformer coils in it, but I didn't see any capacitors. Do the transformer coils store energy? I just don't want anyone to get hurt with this thing. I understand its a bit dangerous while it on and working. However I think I can keep people away from it while its in use. Anyone know anything about this?

Did it make a grinding noise when starting up? That's my main problem. I don't think anything could shock you if it's unplugged from an outlet.

Well if u take it apart and blast air through it now, it may stand a chance. I used to smoke a lot near the xbox, and the psu was in a bad spot. I didn't even know the damn thing had a fan or needed to stay cool. I used to think the noise was from the disc drive. My PSU took a lot of abuse without me even knowing it. It did work great tonite opened up with a fan blowing on it though.
