Xbox 360 S wont stay on

How can I fix my Xbox 360 (slim)? It keeps turning off. It cuts off 8 to 10 times before it comes on for good. The eject button doesn't work and I have to turn on the console from the controller. What can I do?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Have you tried a different power supply? The one you have might be bad.

All those things, the start button, the eject function, and the on/off symptom involve the same part (the faceplate). To me, it sounds like you have a faulty or loosely connected faceplate ribbon. If it still doesn't work correctly after completely disconnecting the faceplate and its ribbon from the motherboard, try replacing the faceplate. It's easier to replace the entire faceplate than to replace only the ribbon. May God bless you and your family today!

I forgot to mention that the RF Module (the little green board your faceplate is connected to) can also be defective and easily replaced.
