Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My Xbox 360 won't fully power on... OK!, so I had the 3rrod and I was finishing up and I was on the last part of the fix which was to overheat it(or bake as they call it). But to my suprise my console turned on with its usual 3rrod and the fan was running higher than usual(well im pretty sure because it was giving off ALOT of air) then it went super power for like 2 seconds and cut off and 2rrod occured(overheat) which I wanted but the fan shouldve stayed on stuff. It stayed basically not running except for the rings so i couldnt even over heat it. It's acting like their is like a safety feature or that it knows somthing is wrong. Do you know how to fix this???
The real problem could just be a failed sensor in the Xbox telling your fan it needs to work its hardest to cool things down. My computer for example is a defective model that shuts down randomly because the sensor tells it it is overheating when is actually doing just fine.
Best solution? If you have one of the earlier generations, give Microsoft a call and tell them what's going on. They'll have you go through the repair request process but simply talk to them and they should cover it for free.
If the warranty is no longer "valid" tell them that you would have gladly had it repaired during that time but you can't fix what's not broken. Now that it IS broken, you would like them to send you a refurbished one free of charge. They will usually get on your side because they know the cooling fan and its system is somewhat of a faulty design.
The other option is don't try and bargain with them and cough up the $100 for them to "repair" it for you (which to me is absurd).
