When it crashes does it turn off the whole system or does any lights come on?

sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. basicly your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink isnt doing its job. there could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.

After 15/30 minutes of playing the first light starts turning red then the xbox crashes how can i fix this


That means there is a hardware failure. If you are in warranty, contact xbox at 1-800-4my-xbox and get it sent in to be fixed. Or you can try and fix it yourself with the self help guides online (search red ring of death fix).

PS3 TURNS ON,GREEN LIGHT FOLLOWED BY YELLOW LIGHT THEN RED FLASHING LIGHT,FANS COME ON BUT WITHIN 3 TO 5 SECONDS ALL SWITCHES OFF TO A RED FLASHING LIGHT


Your hardrive has probably crashed. I have been trying to fix mine and after weeks of studying, i found out I need a new video card. If you have demos then my problem may be yours too. If you are trying to play games and it crashes, then it's the video card. The only game that works with a broken video card is Street Fighter 4, but you can't save. Visit this link for better instruction on how to fix non-video card problems. I hope it helps!

Crashing


Does your console crash about the time the fan kicks on? This is most likely a "heat sink" issue! If this is the case, it's going to need to be sent in for service. No matter what you do, it's just going to keep crashing. When this happened to me, I sent it in to PSR repairs ( www.psr1.com ) They said my repairs exceded the value of the unit... Now Sony is replacing it. Granted, I was still under the extended WalMart warranty, but it goes to show the seriousness of your issue.
Sorry to be the barer of bad news, bro. But your console really needs to get to a shop.

p.s. PSR does both warranty & out of warranty work.

When playing a game keeps crashing


Yep this is the EXACT issue I had so the only solution is call
1-800-4MY-XBOX and you will be recieving a new xbox because the problem is to expensive for microsoft to fix so they just send you a new one.

The Repair and Shipping is free they send you a UPS Tracking Code and Xbox.com Code where you can keep track of your xbox at all times.. but when I did my repair they require you to use your own box now due to people reconiseing the big white box and ended up stealing it now biggie though a box to put the 360 in is only 4 bucks and they will pack it for an addition 60 cents. but mircosoft will tell you all this I'll ******* now and please 5 Star this will prob be the best and only solution.

Cant play games on Xbox 360 live


imma suspect its overheating. beings the fact youve experienced the red ring of death in the past. its either overheating or the hard disk is going bad. unless your using a memory unit. then id point the finger at overheating. the x360 is basically a computer. and when the cpu and gpu overheat or experience harsh temperatures they tend to run sluggish and their performance goes down the **** till they cool down or overheat to the point that the system locks up and crashes/hangs. if you can post more info as much detailed as you can i may be able to more help ya!
