Re: 360 wont turn on
Hi there, This issue may be caused by your power supply and or console not getting good enough ventilation or air vents clogged with dust causing over heating. Check power supply and keep in wide open area same with console (not sitting on carpet). If over heating is the issue you may have warped your motherboard, what happens is the Graphics processing unit (GPU) and or Central processing unit (CPU) get extremely hot causing the mobo to warp and the solder becomes loose and break. Even the fan may be the culprit, the fan uses a lot of power and produces a fair amount of heat that can cause the system to over heat. Please contact microsoft and get system repair if problem persist.

The machine is overheating and the graphics chip on the main board is acting up cause of it. Make sure there is no dust or dirt blocking the air vents that would cause the system to heat up more then normal.
If that doesn't do it then maybe think about getting a cooler for the system, here is a website that talks about a few of them. Click here.
If that doesn't help then your mainboard is going bad and would need to be replaced.
First things first. We'll start from the beginning. Unplug the AC Adapter from the wall and from the Wii. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then plug it back in. 9 times out of 10 your power supply needs to be reset. The only way to reset it is to unplug it from the wall and the wii and let it sit for 15 min. Try this first and report back if it worked. Even if you think you have done this already do it again.
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.
