xbox 360 help

Recommended Posts

My sons xbox 360 was shutting off in the middle of a game so he returnrd it for a new one. Now the new one does it also. He started to think that having other things on at the same time in that room might have something to do with it but that doesn't seem to matter. Anybody else have similar problems or suggestions? Thanks Ken

I would check Xbox's homepage and check customer service. I had the christmas lights of death and had to send mine in for Repair. Or give the CS at XBOX a call. It's free, and they have some good tips.

fyi

I've heard that they extended the warranty from 90 day to 1 year now also. Anyone that has already paid for repairs can get a refund from Microsoft.

Could very well be an overheating issue. System is getting too hot and shuts down. This is been a known issue since it's initial release.

Make sure the power supply can get lots of air and isn't on the carpet.

They do make external cooling fans for the 360's, but until you know that's the problem for a fact, I wouldn't invest in one yet.

Actually, if you really want to find out if that is indeed the problem, plug in a fan behind the 360 to blow on it. If you notice that the unit no longer has any problems, then you know it's a heating issue.

yep, sure sounds like it is overheating. Like everyone else has said:

Don't put it in an enclosed stand

Don't put it on carpet.

Get the transformer (big ugly black thing) off the ground.

(mine sits on the subwoofer)

If all that fails, try an aftermarket cooler (return the cooler if it doesn't work).

I have a launch unit and never have had any issues. I've heard horror stories, but mine has been solid.

    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
    • Go to Milaca unclaimed Freight and for the pulley 8to 1 lift. Cheap and easy  
    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
