Re: tv shuts down

Something isnt properly grounded, I would suggest trying it on another tv and see if the same thing happens there.

On my xbox 360 when i'm playing a game then suddenly directs me to the desk top and when i shut my xbox 360 off the power button flashes green every few seconds why is this happening ?

It sounds like a DVD drive error. When the center light inside the "ring of light" blinks rapidly it thinks the DVD drive is either open or not connected. You can buy a new DVD drive off Ebay for a decent price or take it to a professional shop. When changing the DVD drive you have to also put the original PCB from the old drive onto the new one or it will not play games. It will play DVD's all day but no games. There is a bit of soldering involved. If your not confident you can make the repair check out this site for help. they do good work and are very reasonable.

Today I got home from school and decided I would play my Xbox 360, I haven't even turned it on in the last two months...When I turn it on, the fans briefly turn on to what is seems to be Max and then shut...

i think that is a power problem lights blinking (eletricity going out) can cause it. try unplugging power cords and plugging them back in if that doesn't work plug them into wall

Trying to turn xbox on and getting blinking red ring around power button

If you are having three red lights flashing around the power button with upper right corner not flashing, it means that your Xbox 360 is having a general hardware failure. This is caused by the internal components of the console experiencing a malfunction. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be repaired.

Yes this is the sensors on the back of the DVD drive overheating and it shuts down to prevent damage.

You just need to stop the heat build up, you can do this with a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or send it in and they will repair it for you for $140.
