Just like the X box the heat transfer emulsion on the chips to heat sink wears out, dries out, flakes off, and cannot transfer heat any longer. I would imagine it is over heating. There are MANY youtube videos that will walk you through the process. Dont use the cheap heat sink compound. Use the 98% silver. You can find it @ The shack. Not to hard to do if your a little handy.

When playing a game the screen goes blank after a while


Dude, all you have to do is restart your console and it should start up fine. If it doesn't, keep restarting it until it does. The new-age HD cables have to load a lot of **** to and from your TV to display properly, and if it has the smallest delay, it doesn't display ****.
