My Day1 console has just gone off. I powered it up after leaving it off for around 20 hours like usual and it there was nothing? I swapped the plug fuse then a 2nd console cable and power adaptor (got 2 consoles on day one release). I tried the 2nd power cable in and the orange light went out. After trying various others things I pinned it down to the console. After a while of letting it cool down I powered it up to try & release the game that was in the drive. There was a crackling noise coming from the back right of the console then a strong smell of burning so I immediately unplugged everything in case there was a fire.
After half an hour I powered it up again carefully in the open and the drive released the disc on request so I smelt for smoke and all seemed well. I poked around the dashboard and then I put the game back in and began to play but after around half an hour the console cut out and now won't power on properly? It powers on then cuts straight back off again. The power adaptor is fine, it seems like the console is over heating or has hardware failure :(
It was bought from a catalogue in the UK who I've informed so do I return it to them or to M$? I need to know so I can get the issue resolved asap.
