When turning on our xbox it makes the boot noise and the xbox logo appears. It recently has been taking longer and longer to get to the menu screen until today when it just hung for about 15 minutes, the logo still active (the x glowing every so often). The ring was blank, ie no lights at all.
I tried turning the box back off and it made the off noise but it didn't turn off. Tried this several times to no avail. Accidentally hit the eject button when reaching to pull the power and it openened, I then closed it and pressed the power button again and it turned off fine. Turned it on again and it was fine. But then tried it again and it hung again.
The console is slim 250gb, and have used about 10gb on the HDD.
Anyone got any ideas?
