    My Xbox 360 shut down mid-game and wont turn back on


    So I was in the middle of playing NBA2K10 and my Xbox 360 just shut off. Nothing intense was happening i guess, just in a normal game and it just, stopped. I checked and it wasn't that hot. I unplugged and replugged and still wouldn't
    turn on. The fans were just going full blast then just randomly stopped, controller 1 was still on and the xbox lights around the circle were still on but the screen was black and the fans went off, tried unplugging it as it wouldn't turn off from a push or
    a hold down of the power button, but after plugging back in nothing happened

    edit: seen some stuff that says it may be the power brick, but light is on on the power brick

    :)

    It is most likely the power brick. It doesn't necessarily have to be a heat problem if it doesn't feel hot. If you hear it churning and whirring to its heart's content then that's a sign of power failure/fan failure. The fan's should never be going "full
    blast" unless something was installing that was off a disc or a really big install on the 360. Its not unusual but is a little uncommon for he fans to poop-out like that. My 360 use to due the same thing and when I bought a new power brick from like GameStop,
    it stopped sounding atrocious and stopped randomly shutting off.

    New power bricks are cheap. Xbox doesn't do servicing on the Xbox 360 anymore. So that may be a telltale sign to upgrade to a One if you haven't yet.
    Can't play NBA 2K10 on the xbox 360. Plus I already have an xbox one which I never use cause I don't really like the Xbox One.

    Just wanted to play some old games that aren't backwards compatible but guess not.

    Is this the first time this has happened?

    How long have you had this 360?

    Do you know someone you can swap power bricks with just to determine if it is or isn't the power brick? It could be that the xbox 360 is at its end of life and needs replacing.
    1) Yes

    2) 8.5 years

    3) That's what I will try
