    Xbox shuts off after a few seconds


    My Xbox had been working fine. I was playing a game and some images weren't displaying. Usually, you just wait a minute and they load. I tried to navigate to another part of the game and it appeared to freeze. I then went to try and reboot the Xbox,
    but I couldn't navigate Xbox menu. After a few minutes, the game appeared to come back, so it may have just been running slowly. However, I still couldn't navigate the Xbox menu.

    I then unplugged the console and plugged it back in. Now, when I try to turn it on, the light comes on for a few seconds and then turns off. The light on the power supply turns amber.

    :)

    That appeared to be temporary at best. When I tried to go to the My Apps and Games menu, it was blank and I couldn't get it to switch back to TV. This was only about 5-10 minutes after the successful reboot. I tried the power supply reset. No good.
    Now there's something really weird. The amber light is on the power supply despite it not being plugged in to either the wall or the Xbox.

    I tried both suggestions. I tried the reset, on the console, but I'm not sure anything happened since the light was off the whole time. The console had been off for a while, so it wasn't warm, but I blew out the dust with an air can. I also did the
    power supply reset. It booted, but it ended up in a frozen state. I got the "Hi" message with my name and then got an incomplete screen. I could see the name of the last game I played, but no image. Trying to access the menu from a button on the controller
    just dimmed the screen. Pressing again undimmed the screen.

    I powered off again and the problem occurred again. I only did the power supply reset and also plugged into a different outlet. Now it booted normally. I haven't tried playing a game, but I can now watch cable TV through the HDMI pass through

    Your Xbox is probably overheating. It will be good to clean it at least from dust. Either give him a cleanup or service.

    Sounds like it is overheating. Make sure all vents are clear of dust and debris and the console is well ventilated.

    Try performing a hard reset EXACTLY like this. Hold the power button on the console for 8 seconds or until the power shuts down completely.
    Unplug the power cord from the back of the console for 5 minutes.
    Plug the power cord back in and restart the console.
