Question about Microsoft Xbox Console

1 Answer

My Xbox console after a while when I am playing it just shuts off

My Xbox console randomly shuts off after a certain time, like I am playing a game for about 20 minutes or so and it just shuts off! Also, I cannot turn off my Xbox manually by pressing the shut off button. Like, when I try to press the button to turn the Xbox off it doesn't do anything, so I actually have to unplug it from the electrical plug and thats how I turn it off. This hasn't happened before it just started doing this recently. Whats up with it?

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

If your wondering if there is a timer built inside you can set unfortunately there is not. You could use a timer for the plug to only turn on during certain hours of the day like they use for Christmas lights.
Hope this helps.

The details: System - Xbox 360 Game - Left 4 Dead I'm seeing strange color static pattern on certain objects in the environment. Which objects are affected seems random, they might change on subsequent...


This is fairly common, especially if you are moving quickly in left 4 dead. It is maxing out the Xbox 360's capabilities and once and a while will get a graphic glitch here or there. Make sure your xbox 360 is well ventilated and is not overheating. This could cause this as well, but since you say it's only in left 4 dead this is probably not the case.

Random unreadable disc errors


I had the same problem but i sent it in. They said it was the eye reader error. Or the thing that reads the disc. Try buying a brand new game and try playing it. Alot of times when i have disc read errors i put the disc in where the xbox 360 part at the top goes in facing the xbox. Try that to see if it helps.
