Ok so to start out I don't know much about Xbox hardware and troubleshooting. However I bought one recently that was very cheap. I knew going in that there was something wrong with it but for $35 I got two working controllers and if I can manage to fix the console I'm going to be way ahead. Anyway moving on.

When I purchased this console I was told that it would randomly shut off, normally when they tried connecting to the internet. When I got it I couldn't even get it to boot to the dashboard. I first tried factory resetting it to no avail. I then tried an OSU. It showed that it completed and got me to the setup screen but again it would shut off. I also checked for power supply issues by swapping for a known working unit but got the same power off issue. So then I figured I would take it apart and see if I could see anything physically wrong and while I was at it I decided to wipe the hard drive and re-install the OS on the off chance that it was something corrupted.

So I followed a tutorial that I found on this site. All went well, I hooked the drive back up, powered up, and ran the OSU. This time I was able to get completely through setup and to the dashboard. However I had to use a wired controller because I hadn't reconnected the wifi board. So then I finished the tutorial by taking the drive back out, copying the boot animation file, and then reconnecting everything. At this point I thought I was in business because everything was working... But when I powered it back up it said I wasn't signed in. So when I tried it shut off again. The only thing I could think of at this point was that on the original boot I didn't have the wifi board connected and maybe the issue was with that. So I disconnected it and powered back on. And my system isn't shutting down. The only issue I'm finding at this point is that the internet connection is a little wonky. It's attempting to download a game update and it'll randomly stop, then start back up...

I told you all this long story to ask a question... Can a bad wifi board cause the console to power off? Or is there some other issue?

  • chrisrlink @ chrisrlink:
    they'd be stupid if they didn't compensate it would add even more problems for them especially if they decline refunding monthly subs
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    How can it be legal to shut down servers say for example 3DS, when you bought the product advertised as online game purchases availible? Shouldn't they be liable for false advertising now?

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Because 3ds is dated hardware
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
