Thanks for the reminder. Did it for my 3 friends and my brother. They have Xbox's manufactured all on the same date 10/21/2001.
You beat me to it. Just found out about this and ordered my replacement. Painless.
my friend s xbox turns off after 10 minutes, maybe this is the problem.
I know my eyesight is pretty bad, but for those of you who have ordered the replacement cord via the web, where is the "Power Cord Replacement for Xbox Link" on the web site?
On the right side of the main page, it's the advertisement-looking box above the X-Box Live graphic but below where it says 'Support'. Red border with a white field that says: Important Safety Notice Power Cord Replacement for XBOX Click Here Here is a direct link if you live in the US.
OK...I'm losin' it. I typed in the www.xbox.com URL address and it re-directs me to the default main page, http://www.xbox.com/en-US/default.htm. I don't see anything close that resembles what David has posted. I'm using FireFox and thought that maybe it was blocking the link for some reason. But I tried accessing the web site using IE and got the same thing. Weird. Maybe my firewall is filtering it out. Anyhow, thanks David for the direct link. It came in handy.
That is so weird because it's there just as plain as day: The first column has The Punisher, the second column lists recent videogames and third column starts with the power cord recall link.
I ordered mine too. Funny thing is I've been using different power cords with the XBox and have had no problems. What exactly is the requirement for power?
It's something to do with the overheating. I just got my replacement cord yesterday, I opened it up and it has a fairly big box like recepticle on the plug itself that sort of looks like a GFCI plug with a "reset" button and a small red led with a small manual (!) and a yellow button. I haven't hooked it up yet but apparently there is some problems with overheating, possibly causing an internal fire to the xbox so MS must of made a fuse/relay that will shut power off if it detects an overheating condition.

Jay, how long did it take for you to get your cord from the time you ordered it? Just curious as MS sent out a mass email w/ each order saying "2-3 weeks" but my order has already shipped, according to the status page on their website, and I can't imagine it takes 2-3 weeks even via snail mail.
