xbox 360 turns itself off


Active Member
Hi peeps
My 360 has begun to turn off by itelf randomly and display 3 red lights. If i turn it on a min later it is okay than maybe 20 mins later happens again. I have placed it on its side, the power brick seems to be okay. I have read online but not had a definitive answer.
Any ideas guys?

Its dead or dying.

If its less than 3 years old then MS will replace it for you. Just contact them, go here :

Online Support Resources for your NXE Xbox 360 | Xbox Support

That will give you online repair orders, or supply you with the contact number.

It its older, then you can fix it yourself if you're a bit PC savvy. I.e. built your own PC.

Should cost no more than a tenna.
