Xbox broke?

I tried to turn my xbox on and heard a loud pop noise. I tried to turn it on again and it did nothing. I then tried to plug the chord into other plugs and then plugged the chord into the xbox and the chord turned off. Did it break?

Is it an OG Xbox with the large power brick?

Its the original xbox one

Your power brick might be shot. The console itself should still be fine, but you’ll probably need a replacement cable

I thought that but plugged in alone, the cable turns on, but the second i plug the cable into the xbox the light turns off

I already checked i plugged the cable in and the orange light turned on, but when i plugged the xbox in, the light went out

The brick itself could be failing once it is under load from the console. If you know anyone that has an original Xbox, see if you can borrow their power cable to test.
