Ok so i have a problem with my xbox 360 slim i recently bought call of duty ghosts and i played it for about a month about two to three hours a night three to five nights a week recently ive tried playing...


Try blasting some compressed air inside near the fan (when the console is off and cool) If not, there is either something lodged pretty good in the fan or the fan is failing. Both would require you or someone to open the 360. Cheap fix though, considering the overheating hasn't taken too much of a toll on the hardware.

I have two consoles that quit in 30 minutes of each other. the graphics chip is fried. go to www.xbox.com and file a repair ticket. you will get a tracking # to mail in the defective consoles.

Ps3 overheat


Your PS3 might have a broken fan. If you are using an external fan that attaches to the PS3 than stop, fans like the Nyko Intercooler and Pelican cause more problems with ventillation and may cause the PS3 to overheat. If heat is an issue make sure the system has plenty of room to breath and point a small fan at the console. If thiat doesn't work call Sony customer sopport.

Xbox 360 halo problems


my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck

Constantly over heats even with intercooler


Try arranging the xbox vertically, if you havent already. The xbox and ps3 both were made for much better cooling when arranged in this way.

Unfortunately, if the ambient temp in your room is high, or if you live in a hot area, you may not be able to do much. Try to keep the xbox out of a cabinet or any enclosed space, and give it as much airflow as possible.

If all that fails, I would consider sending it in to Microsoft for repair.

2 left side red 1/2 ring ligts


These two lights are actually an indication of overheating. Typically this happens if the heat synch is not making good contact with the cpu or gpu, or the cooling fan is not working properly.
If the fan gets really loud just before it overheats and turns off then it is likely a heat synch issue
You can try searching for the xclamp replacement fix (I won't leave my own tutorial here as there are a plethera of them out there, just use a search engine to find them)
If the fans do not make noise - it may be that they are not working properly, you may want to replace it with another cooling fan. Talismoon fans are widely available and very quiet.
Try cleaning the console - dust and debris trapped inside the console traps heat as well.
Other than that if the console is usuable for more than a few minutes and it overheats after an hour or more, then you can try removing the heatshield (metal piece located under the top plastic cover) and or replacing the cooling fan with a more effecient fan. Please note that removing the heatshield is not recommended as it protects the top of the console from the extreme heat built up by the console, but removing it does allow for a much more significant amount of air flow.
Try and keep the console off the ground - along with the power supply

Play it horizontally instead of vertically and keep it away from carpets which trap heat and other sources of heat.
As always contact microsoft for warranty info prior to opening the console or letting someone else fix it for you.
Hope that helps.

Xbox 360 taking longer to load up


Concidering that your warranty was renewed when your console went in for service, I would call microsoft and tell them of the error. Also, when they re-set your console, they made it so that you have to manually sign in.
