Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
The red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. Your thoughts on overheating are close the system will shut down the same way, however it will shutdown while on the dash as well, and regardless of in game or dashboard, if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
this is not a theory either, pull your fan power than run your system for a few minutes, you will see what i mean
Also note that
It's overheating. Clean out the vents with vacuum cleaner. If symptoms persist, call for skilled personnel to handle it .
Hope you find this helpful. Good luck
