I have an xbox 360 slim.
Today, while playing for an admittedly long session, my console suddenly shut itself off, making the same noise it would make when you would shut it off when a game froze.
After letting it sit for a bit, I tried turning it back on. It began to boot up, but quickly stops and turns back off.
The power brick "revs up" as if ready to turn on, but stops.
It has an orange light when plugged in.
At first, the plug made a static noise when being unplugged and when being plugged back in.
I tried using a spare power cable to see if that was the issue, but the same thing happened; the power brick "revs up,", but stops and the console turns back off.
It seems it may be the power brick itself, but I want to know if other people have experienced this and if there is a fix before getting a replacement brick.
