Hey i had this same problem with mine
its to do with the graphics chip and av port but i got it fixed.
the easyest way is to call microsoft but that takes time. the other way i fixed it was to wrap it in two towels. it worked for me.
ok first thing to do is take everything out ur xbox e.g hardrive controllers etc only leave the av cable and power cable.
2nd lie a towel on the floor and sit the xbox on its side on the towel turn the xbox on till the error message plays on ur tv and then wrap the towel around the xbox blocking all the vents, put another towel over it to make sure the vents are covered. leave on for 15 mins in the towels then after 15 mins remove the towels and turn off xbox leave for 5 mins then turn on and it should work it worked for mine. its only a temp fix but at least you can play it while your waiting on microsoft
hope this helps please rate me
