Xbox keeps switching on and off

Can anyone advise what the possible cause of my xbox randomly switching on and off is.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Does your Xbox get hot then shut off? If so your Xbox may be coming to its end.

Also it could be a loose cord or a bad out lit.

Try hooking it up somewhere else and see what happens.

You can also try contacting Xbox support on twitter at @xboxsupport.

Where do you keep your console located? I would advice against placing the console in a tight location like  a media cabinet (my console is on a desk for example to increase air flow) because it leads to over-heating.

Also check to see if there is any dust in the air vents and be sure to clean it out while not opening the console as doing so will void your warranty.

Thanks for the tips, it is less than a year old so hope it's not on the way out. I will move it out of the cabinet and clear out the dust.
