console turning off right after pressing power button

since yesterday i got the problem that my xbox 360 slim won´t turn on​. when i touch the power button it peeps and the middle led is turning green and fans start spinning, but only for half a second and it turns itself off, psu went back to orange. after spamming the power button i managed to turn it on like it supposed to. it ran the whole day, though it behaved like an old motorcycle where you had to constantly kickstart until it got enough starting power. the next day i tried to turn it on and the led on the psu went red. no boot. i unplugged and pluged it back in but same result. could the psu dead or is something wrong with the console ?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thats very possible have you had any problems with the graphics ex screen splitting random drops in frame rate?

umm yes to both but i think this is more due to dark souls 2 than the xbox itself since i saw the same issues at a friends house and i sadly didnt tried games where i know frame drops and screen tearing aren´t represent
