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

 

Question Info


Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 0 Applies to:

It's overheating:

1.  Unplug from power source then clean all power connections on brick and box.  Loose connections cause overheating.

2.  While unplugged, use compressed air to blow through air vents on the brick.  

3.  Before reinstalling, place brick on flat, hard surface with air vents up.  Resting on carpet can help overheating.

4.  If problem persists after that, you need your brick repaired or a new brick.

Hope it helps
