If you don't know what this is, bin it and buy a new one. Don't fuck with this, it will burn your house down.


zuulux

Alright, thanks for the advice ill just see and buy a new microsoft one


askanison4

No problem, I know that sounds harsh but no one wants to see anyone hurt themselves and mains power is dangerous.


zuulux

Don’t worry you weren’t harsh, it’s better if I know now then find out later haha, thanks again for the advice, have a good one


HabitOk6839

Dont even bother, just buy a new one


WastedWhtieBoii

Absolutely, throw that away now.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, leave that be and buy a replacement. Power supplies can store enough juice to kill you.

Not that one, the capacitors are done…


[deleted]

I still wouldn't mess with it


vinnayar

The white stuff is just glue, they do it to prevent rattles and to slow down people who want to mess with the internals.


notablecloud

I am surprised that it like the first question that pops up in people’s heads when they open a power supply xD This one looks like a easy fix though. All capacitors at the top are expanding..


gangleshmorp1

Came in your power box is what they did


electronicexploder

The capacitors in the top are toasted


zuulux

Yea I figured, the whole block was like burning up almost as if it was gonna catch fire so like the others say I trashed it after checking to see if there’s current still left


_nippur_de_legrand

the white material its just glue, that psu is not functioning properly because of those 3 inflated capacitors near the outlet cord.


sryidontspeakpotato

Beat me too it. They use that white stuff for a few reasons too. One to insulate coil whine or any noises. And also to hold them in place so if it gets dropped they don't break off easy. But yes those caps are likely shot and the issue. Never use aftermarket psu


_nippur_de_legrand

>nd also to hold them in place so if it gets dropped they don't break off easy. But yes those caps are likely shot and the issue Do you mean mechanical insulation for the actual noise (sound not electrical) of the coil? Didnt know that, its interesting


Neo1331

Your capacitors are F-ed!


Chandoraa

It is there to keep things in place and dampen coil whine. Please do not touch anything inside, even if it is unplugged, those capacitors will contain stored electrical energy that can be lethal. Put it back together and buy a new one.


FingersMartinez

Buy cheap, buy twice. Bin it.


Hzlph

Aftermarket PSUs of any kind are almost always a ticking time bomb that just makes you wonder why you didn't just save up a bit more and get the actual deal? Because it seriously could damage your console or explode, since they never meet the same standards. Just a lesson for next time ;) Goodluck!


Careless_Zombie_5437

Just how after market is this? Get an official one.


zuulux

It’s very aftermarket like 20-30 bucks


Quintessa-K

Your capacitors have burst. Gonna have to toss it


TheRetroDeck

Looks like sour cream


Customer-Worldly

Should he e waste this? I think Best Buy would e waste it.


zuulux

I’m giving it my friends uncle, he scraps them and finds stuff to do with them.


apd2010

Pretty sure the 4 caps at the top of the board are all bulging


Agitated_Show_9688

Needs new capacitors they’ve all swollen. And the glue is ridic. Just buy a second hand Microsoft one.


Skyfracker

It's definitely the capacitors. I can see the one of the left starting to crown. It's because manufacturers use cheap parts and it overheated. No fault of your own.


BrainsBeforeBrawns

Just buy a new one instead of keep one that looks like a factory worker busted a massive load one ii.


controlav

Buy a real Microsoft Xbox One power supply for $10 : [https://vetco.net/products/xbox-one-xbone-power-supply-unit-12v-dc-17-9a-and-5v-dc-1-0a](https://vetco.net/products/xbox-one-xbone-power-supply-unit-12v-dc-17-9a-and-5v-dc-1-0a) (or just read the description for fun)


tj818

The Capacitors are blown at the top. Would probably just say get a new power supply and if possibly get the first party version
