Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When i play my xbox, i can only play for 3 minutes or less before the screen shuts off and the 2 left side lights go red. I saw on here that means it overheats, but i vacuumed some dust out of the vents and put a fan on it for 3 hours. This did absolutly nothing. Also, when it goes black I have to unplug it and plug it back in to shut it off or do anything.
You have to take the x-box apart(youtube) and then take off the heat sinks clean the thermal paste apply new thermal paste remount heat sinks with type 5mm screws and m-5 washers, nylon not necessary. after remounting the heatsinks you have to overheat the system and then let it cool. the overheating process will sometimes require a heat gun since the console will not stay on long enough to get it heated properly. you sometimes don't have to do this if reapplying new thermal paste has done the trick.
