Re: xbox 360 shuts down on its own
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?

...Dont worry thats actully very common Its Just a little Lag in the disk...If the disk is scrathed thats why It just hits the scratch and shuts down becuase it has no idea what it is...Hope thats helpful Or if that doesnt work Just Levae it alone for a litrle bit let it rest...
Many people seem to be having this problem at the minute, it may be a fault at their end, i.e server has gone down/too many people online. Leave it for a little bit and try again later, I have had similar experiences on modern warfare 2, and halo
This i have seen before and it tells me the machines is displaying the signs of lead free solder failure (85%sure). you could strip the machine down and replacing the x-clamps at the same time do the heatgun fix if you dont have access to an IR oven.
To me it will just get worse and will definately need the x-clamps replacing AND the solder re-seating.
yamaha doesn't really work so well with microsoft because it is a different company (brand) try getting a ethernet cord and plugging it into a modem if you dont have 1 try getting a wireless microsoft thing so that everything works out well
your xbox 360 is overheating its called the red ring of death look it up on google you can have microsoft fix it if you still have a warranty on it, it shuts down so none of the components in the xbox 360 get damaged
can u get into your xbox and see if the the button is damaged i have had buttons stop working cos of the little bit that makes the button press the pannel button ---> rubber bit -> the little button on the xbox board
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
hey johnny you will have to call microsoft and get it fixed there is one thing you can do in the mean time to temp fix it.
what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about 20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15 mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.
