    My Xbox suddenly turned off. After letting it cool for 15 mins I turned it back on but it turned off again after about 2 mins since then when the power supply is connected the Xbox cooling fan starts
    running, sounding like a jet engine but the Xbox stays off. A slight inky burning smell is also emitted from the fan area. Is this an issue with the thermal paste or something else? Also please note that there is no light( I mean the one that comes on when
    Xbox is turned on) on the Xbox and I’m sure the power brick is fine as according to the Xbox guide it gives all the required lights ;however , Is this normal that when I plug it in the wall, the power supply shows
    a GREEN light.green light continues when put in the console but the console stays off however the console fan powers on instantly(seemingly only thing on) is this a power supply issue( as I read that when it is plugged in the wall and not in the console
    it shows an orange light) or is this a THERMAL PASTE issue cause recently I played for 10 hours continuous for an entire week. or Is this a burn or console damage as an inky burning smell emitted from the console when the power supply is connected( from fan
    area). I have a standard Xbox 1 console. The Xbox on attempting to turn it on gives no response but very very faint sounds can be heard occasionally (the one Xbox 1 gives when it is turned on).
    Please help !!!

    :)

    Seems like overheating (maybe also cockroaches nest?).

    You should take it to your local lab if your warranty is over.

    You seem to have serious problems, and that’s not because of thermal paste. Try turning it off for a few hours, and then turn it on. If it does not help or the problem recurs - contact the service center

    Hey

    Maybe this can helps

    I've tried all those Xbox support options. I opened up the console and there were places where there was no thermal paste (between the heat sink and the CPU) perhaps the thermal paste may be the problem. Its been years with the same past. I'll check it out
    then I'll put the result here.
