Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I turn on my xbox ant a little bit later it shuts down on its own.like i am playing my game and the thing shuts down but the light is still on and my controller is still on but no fan power and no picture at all
Hi m8, this is caused by the machine is overheating
you could try installing one of the cooling units that slot into the back of the machine or by replacing the fans inside the 360 for whisper ones (faster rpm)
dont lay it on a carpet and if you have it laid down try standing it up to see if that helps if it carries on doing this then it could be the motherboard overheating.
overheating/board failure: this is more than likely whats happening. you will need to strip down the console and take the mainboard out. take the x-clamps off (both of them) and go over the whole board (paying more attention to the memory and cpu,gpu etc) in a circular motion around 2-3 inches away from the board. let the mainbaoard cool down and then put it all back together. then try again. i guarantee this will probably fix your problem. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

This is a built in temperature overheating contermeasure. Make sure your xbox is not in an enclosed area or on a carpet. If posssible, place a fan next to it and see if that gets you increased playtime. If it does, then you know its a problem with it overheating.
Is this only playing a specific game? Every Game? Demos? Listening to Music? Watching Dvds?
Playing a game puts the most stress on the 360.
