  1. Xbox One X shuts down due to “lack of ventilation”


    My launch Xbox One X has recently started shutting off in the middle of me playing. It has happened on several different games. Upon restarting my console it says its a self protection measure to prevent overheating due to lack of ventilation. If I feel
    the top and back of the console it doesn’t feel particularly hot at all. The last time it happened I had only been playing for about three minutes, which I wouldn’t think could possibly be enough time for an issue to arise. I’ve tried moving it, but the problem
    still persists. I’ve tried to research the issue online, but haven’t found anything thats particularly helpful. Has anyone here experienced this? Does anyone have any suggestions?

    :)

    Idk if you’re unfamiliar with the fahrenheit model of temperature, but 70 degrees is not warm. That’s considered to be average to slightly cooler than the average home in the US. 72 degrees is considered the standard indoor temperature.

    Yes, there is plenty of space at both locations where it has occurred. There is nothing “blocking” any vents other than the cords for the console itself.

    check the vents on the side and top of the Xbox to see if they are blocked with dust as that could cause this issue.

    If there is sufficient space, try using an air duster can on the vents. These are cans of compressed air and are pretty cheap. It could be that something is blocking the airflow, causing the console to overheat.

    I’ve used compressed air to clear the outside vents in the past. Taking the outer casing off might be something I have to consider I guess.
