    Console started to turn itself off after seconds/minutes


    Today I rearranged my living room and moved my XBox from one side of the room to the other. Since then it only runs for a few minutes - or seconds - before switching itself off. I tried unplugging all the power leads and leaving them for a while (several
    times), but it made no difference. Sometimes it would turn off before getting to the menu screen. Other times it would stay on until you tried to play a game, and then it would die.

    I thought a system restore might help, but it hasn't; now it just turns off as it tries to run the setup process.

    It's not overheating, it's not on carpet, it has plenty of ventilation. I've not had the console long...about a month. Perhaps foolishly I bought it new from eBay (it was a sealed Master Chief edition).

    Unless someone has some magical thing I could try I imagine it will need to be repaired or replaced. What are my options?

    :)

    Console turning off (@dashboard & ingame)

    Hi,

    it's been a while since the last time I played a game on my Xbox360 (about 6 months or so). Today I wanted to but after the WL-Update for Bayonetta the console turned itself off and I couldn't turn it on again -> Nothing was happening when I pressed the eject
    button/ power button / Xbox-button on the controller. All cables are in place and seem to work... After 5-10 minutes the xbox turned on by itself and seemed to be working properly - but after 30 secs in the game menu the console turned off again. 5-10 minutes
    later the console started itself but turned off after 10 minutes in the dashboard.

    The light on the psu glows orange (standy) and green (console running) but turns completly off when the xbox shuts itself down.

    Could you tell me where the problem is located? Thank you!

    Latest update Bricked my console!?

    I have a newer slim Xbox, and when I turned on the console it prompted me to update my console and started the process of downloading the update. After it finished downloading it started to restart the console and it did in fact turn off and back on quickly,
    but after I heard the xbox turn on again it turned off only after a second. So I waited a few minutes I tried to turn it back on with the controller and nothing, and then I check the power brick and no light. So I un plugged it and the orange light comes
    on for a second and then very quickly it goes green. red. and then completely off again. Any idea's?

    Hi there,

    as you have ensured your console is not overheating and has adequate ventilation, this may be an issue with your console's power supply. Please visit this page: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/system/console-wont-power-on/
    and check through solutions 4, 6 and 7. If none of these help, solution 8 may be your only option (having the power supply replaced).

    Let us know how you get on! Good luck.

    try to reboot the console, turn off the xbox by holding the xbox button for 60 second it will turn off automatically then after 1 minute turn it on by using the controller, and load the game again.

    games error

    Salut,Vider le cache,reste appuyer sur le bouton de démarrage sur la console pendant 10 secondes, il s'éteindra tout seul, débranchez le câble d'alimentation pendant 5 minutes, reconnectez et redémarrez la console

    -[Translation - Hi, Empty the cache, just press the start button on the console for 10 seconds, it will turn off by itself, unplug the power cable for 5 minutes, reconnect and reboot the console]

    You can try a hard reset of your console, by holding your finger on the white power button for several seconds until you hear a tone and then the console turns itself off. Unplug the console for a few minutes, plug it back in and turn it back on. This
    may help.

    Installed games from CD don't launch

    You should try hard resetting your console, this is done by holding down the power button for ten seconds and then after the console turns off wait a minute or two before turning the console back on.
