Xbox starts by itself and shuts off. Rapidly.

Hey there! My Xbox has been going strong for the past while, but a little while ago, it started shutting itself off at random times, and it got progressively worse, to the point where it would start itself up, and shut off randomly, and rapidly. I took it apart, and cleaned everything, and paid close attention to cleaning the Rf module, and it worked again. For a couple months anyway. Now it's back to doing it again. It's not overheating, it's not filthy inside, so what is it?Am I right, Is something wrong with the Rf module? I just need to know so I know what part I need to order to end this once and for all. It's really tedious, because I use it to watch YouTube when I'm trying to sleep, and without it, I'm at a loss! Thanks in advance!

Answer this question I have this problem too

If you have or can get a hold of a wired controller try this:

Remove the front panel and RF board.

Used wire controller to turn on the console.

If the problem stops then you know your rf board is faulty.

You can also insert a disk to power on the console. Very good idea though.

I'd start by replacing the front panel (replacement part), it could well be a faulty power on/off touch sensor. If the problem still persists after that then move on to the RF Module board (replacement part) following this guide to for both jobs

Hello I've had this same issue lately and I cleaned the RF module and nothing happened! so I replaced the heat sink and the fan and it worked perfectly fine and have had no problems since. These guides might help.

Or have messed with anything not the cleaning it it sounds like the board is shorting out?. And have you tried different power supplies?

Did you fix it?

No, not yet. I'm going to see if I can get some money together and try to replace the Rf module, and see if that works
