    Sounds like you need to get reflowed. If you can find someone close to you, it should only cost you $30 or so. You can always try the towel trick to ty you over until you can get it fixed. Take 2 heavy towels with all cords unplugged except for the power supply. Wrap the 360 up good and turn the system on. Make sure no air gets to it. Let it run for 15-20 mins and it will overheat itself. Let it cool down for another 15-20 mins and give it a go. I can confirm that it has worked. Good luck man! Xbox 360 GT is CubFan4Life78 if your down for some Cod BO!

    It should shut down by itself! If not shut it off at around the 20 min.Where are you located. I am here in Wisconsin and I know a guy that has reflow station. You can email Greg at imod360s@gmail.com

    I thought the towel trick greatly reduced the chance of being able to get save by a reflow?
    We do not recommend you do the "baking" trick at all really as it causes more damage than good. For one thing, each time u heat it up like that, more and more oxidation occurs and builds up on the connections, degrading their quality more and more with each subsequent overheat until the unit no longer boots at all.

    Now another thing is that every CPU and GPU have a max operating temperature that they must not exceed while being powered. For most current processors the limit is usually somewhere between 75 and 100 degrees Celsius until critical damage starts to occur. Now when the unit is off, this is another story and it is perfectly fine for it to reach over 200 in order to be reflowed properly.

    I done the towel trick and it worked, then I had it reflowed and it still works just fine. The trick is just a temporary fix until he can get to someone to reflow it. It was just a suggestion.

    I see no error?

    @toby it is a temporary fix, but most people who do the reflows say to stay away from it. As the solders can get damaged, and no longer be used.
