Recently my Xbox has been turning itself off, and after showing the two red rings. This never happened before but lately it has been doing this after I have playing a game for only a short amount of time. It has happened while using the YouTube app, but
only after it has been on for a very long time. I managed to stop this happening for a while after I hoovered all the vents and openings on the console, unfortunately this does not work anymore. Again, this only happens when playing a game. I just want to
know if there is any solution apart from getting it repaired. The area around the console is relatively clear, though it is about a metre away from a radiator and my room tends to be quite hot. But as I said, this never happened before and my xbox has been
in the same position for quite a long time. Any help would be appreciated.
