We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
If you bought a new power brick and it's overheating you should return it back to the place of purchase for a replacement, that's not normal at all. My XBOX360 Slim is on daily for at-least 2-3 hours a day and it's been fine for over 2 years now.
Do you have it placed in an open, well ventilated area? Check out this helpful support article on
Optimum placement for your XBOX 360. If the placement is fine, then you should return it for a replacement. You should be fine with it being a week old.
Let us know how it goes, or if you have anymore questions!
