The console has a general hardware failure.If the console has not been tampered with in any way:ie the case has not been opened, you are covered by microsofts 3 year warranty, visit to book a repair, it does not cost you,but it can take from 1 week to 3 weeks to come back.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.
