    Sounds like your power supply is shot. I had mine do the same thing and the power supply was the cause. I would try to turn it on and it would make a sound for about a split second and then do nothing.

    If you have had it less then a year then you can call Microsoft and get them to replace it.

    If you have had it more then a year you will have to buy one.
    they have a ton of them on Ebay.
    here are some links:

    I upgraded and went with a third party supply.

    ouch, then it is more likely a hardware failure on your 360, which means you have to send it to Microsoft to fix.
    I am sure you are, but are you making sure that the power supply plug that goes into the 360 is 100% plugged in and secure. If it is not you can also get red lights on it.

    If you call MS and tell them you have two consoles and the PSU works on one but not the other i am pretty sure they are just going to tell you that you need to ship it too them for repair.

    That is why fixing them is best left to the experts, or at least by sending it to Microsoft, LOL.
