Check that the fan is working correctly in the Kinect itself, it has its own fan and supply. They have a tendency to turn off, burn out, and sometimes (in my case) destroy the internal j11 thermal fuse.

Also your Kinect cable actually plugs into the back of your Kinect, it is super super tough to pull out , but give it a shove in and make sure it's well connected.

Can you point me towards anything guiding through bypassing the j11 thermal fuse you reference?

Could be a power related failure by the sounds of it either the cord or the supply itself. Had an issue similar to this on a pc. Had to replace the power supply to fix it. If you know someone with a connect like yours, you can try to swap the power supply and see if that gets it working correctly. Could even go to a local gaming store that sells used parts and pick one up on the cheap just to test it.
