I have a Xbox 360 premium, which keeps over heating. It has a fan that you can plug in the back, but it makes no difference to the problem, which is that it keeps over heating?

How long are you playing it for

dont place it directly next to the wall and keep it in a cool room keep windows open at least

if that dosnt work you might have to open it up and hard mod fans to it (solder them to it)

usually the problem is when people play on it for hours at a time
and the poor quality of solder on it which keeps melting so be carefull

This is not a new installation. xbox 360 goes no

have you gotten all the updates from MS for the xbox?

i would check for heat issues, make sure none of the vent holes are plugged, blow it out with some compressed air, and make sure the back of the unit can vent well, if it is in a cabinet, it will get warm fast.

if that doesnt help. try an different HDMI cable.

I plug the xbox 360 in then air comes out the back of the xbox

Hi this is the same and similar fault to the dreaded 3rrod but with a different outcome. the mainboard warps with too much heat and as a result the lead free solder cracks causing this and other similar problems.

we can fix this np for you and get your xbox 360 back to normal if you live in the Uk. we can fix this for £40 including return delivery to your door.

the board needs something called a reflow, the xclamps replaced and heat conducting pads to the memory chips. we also give xbox 360's a good service when we do the repair too.

thnak you

Xbox 360 Error Code 0021

So, you took apart the Xbox 360?

The Xbox 360 has serious cooling problems; compressed air usually does wonders for the Xbox.

You'll "brick" your Xbox tampering with the fan and heat sink; soft mods are always a bad idea if you don't have any recourse for fixing the system.

Hard Mods/Mod Chips are the best way to go because you have dual boot capabilities; you can boot to the original Xbox OS or the Mod Chip firmware.

Currently, Microsoft is being sued for the number of Xbox 360 consoles experiencing the "Red Rings of Death."

Microsoft is making amends by fixing the Xbox 360 at no charge.

Taking the Xbox apart yourself may void your warranty; you might start by uses an Ohm Meter to check the heat sink and fan connections.

Also make sure there is not a gap between the heat sink and the processor; this space should be filled with the thermal compound.

Furthermore, the fan might be damaged and not reporting the fan speed through the variable resistance wire; only way to determine this is by powering the fan with +5v / -5v and checking the variable resistance wire with an Ohm meter.

My xbox 360 has no picture but sound only no red lights green ok

First take off my hard drive on the 360. Then plug it to the tv not with HDTV (use the red, yellow and white make sure it is on tv not HDTV) because it will not work for HDTV setting . then plugit into the wall with the 360 laying down not up and down and turned it on. (no picture but sound) with the 360 on take 1 towel fold it long ways and wraped it around 360 from back to front (make sure you cover the fans in the back to make it over heat.) leave your 360 on until it red rings (you can hear the 360 quit down. it takes about 15-30 mins depending on how fast it over heats. once this happens unwrap the 360 and turn it off wait 5 secs and power it back on and there you go you should have picture and sound again. if you still have problem you can now can send it to get repaired since there is a 3 year warrenty for red ringed 360's.

RED Ring of death xclamp fixed but..

Do you have the fan in? If you do, take it out or put 2 screwdrivers through the back holes to stop the fans from spinning. IF you have the fans out and its still not overheating, just leave it on for a while until it does. It will overheat eventually.

Xbox 360 intercooler

I have 2 360's (1 core and 1 premium) and have the intercooler on the premium....after measuring the heat output it is reduced moderately. I would only recommend getting the intercooler if you are having heat issues with your 360 or it is in a small not well ventilated area. Hope this helps.
