red light help

Xbox 360 black power brick has red light and keeps shutting down. I can let it sit for like 30 minutes and its good for maybe another 30 min. This is very frustrating. In the middle of games it just decides to shut down. Embarrassing and tiring.  Please help

Hi there, this link might help support.xbox.com/.../check-power-supply You have done one of the solutions with letting it cool for 30 minutes but since it didn't work you can also try a different outlet. It says not to use a surge protector. If it still acts the same you will have to replace the power brick.

I used to have the same problem with my power brick. I put a fan blowing on it which helped it work fine for another maybe 5 months.....eventually I had to buy a new power brick and they are kind of expensive. Your power brick probably has a lot of dust in it or the fan in it is not working.
