Re: xbox console

There could be a few things going wrong here, none of which have good results: If you've installed any mod chips inside the system, remove them. They can cause more problems than they are worth. I've seen it happen too many times. The fault could also be on the motherboard. A short somewhere, a bad capacitor, or a loose solder joint. Or, it could be the power lead. At one point Microsoft had an issue with the power supply and released a circuit breaker addon, can't recall what geration of xbox they started this on. In any of those cases, you would need at least a little knowhow about circuit boards, and would need to void your warranty by opening the box to see if anything inside looks fried or loose.

I turn my xbox 360 on and im able to play for 20

Is it one of the original 360s? If so, then either send it to Microsoft, pawn it off on some ******, or pitch it in the garbage.

My xbox isnt turning on there is no lights nothing

It sounds like a fried power supply. It could have happened for many reasons; overheating (being on carpet is bad for the Xbox), low or high surge through the power supply, etc. You may have to order a new power supply from Ebay. Should only cost about 20-25 bucks.

Turns on and works great...after about 10 minutes it doesnt work.

it is probably because your xbox is over heatng and you have a bad or loose wire in your xbox, try to put a fan facing the back of it before u turn it on
