Why is my Xbox 360 shutting off while playing a game?
Xbox shuts down while playing
The Xbox 360 is the second game console made by Microsoft, and was released November 22, 2005.
Probably overheating. Buy a can of compressed air, and give it a good dusting. Also ensure that it is an open area so that it may breathe, also ensure the power supply is able to breathe as well. I would also blow out the power supply as well.
If you provide more detail I can help you further;
What type of xbox?
Are any lights active when it shuts down? (Power supply light, red ring, etc)
How often does this happen?
Your Xbox 360 is overheating. Your solution is as follows:
A: The thermal paste between processors and heatsink needs to be cleaned and replaced. This will allow your xbox 360 to transfer heat more easily RELIEVING THE OVERHEATING ISSUE.
B: a REFLOW WOULD NOT HURT TO REVERSE AN DAMAGE ALREADY CAUSED.
We found the solution with our Xbox 360 slim the problem with our one was that it kept on turning off unexpectably when playing a game the power block was red we didn't replace it all we was get them sprays that spray air for computers vents we sprayed the stuff in our Xbox and we turned it on after waiting 2-3 mins the power block turned green and it didn't turn off unexpectably anymore
i Had this issue, it ended up being the flex for the touch power/ cd eject buttons. to make sure that's the issue i removed the face of the xbox and disconnected the flex. xbox worked flawlessly after that so i just replaced the flex. no problems since.
