    I have the new Slim and after a few times playing it, it has quit powering up fully. The lights come on, the fan spins (but very slowly), but no picture shows up. It seems like its getting power but not enough.

    Does any one have any ideas?

    I have been hearing about some overheating issues on the new model. Is it hot at all, or is this at cold start up?

    Have you checked the obvious, like any loose cables from the tv to the console?

    i have it as well and have had no issues aside from a bad mic.

    i suggest what pam has said, if not return it or send it to microsoft

    Yeah ive checked the connections. Now that you mention it, I noticed that the console got unusually hot. It does this on cold start. I can't even get the machine to actually process the OS. But it gets lights on the console AND power brick.

    Oh yuck. My guess would be that maybe it overheated to the point where it is now no longer working. You'll probably have to send it in to Microsoft.
    I would also like to add that I am in no way an authority subject on this matter. I did a little more googling and discovered that the supposed overheating issues were not confirmed by anyone.

    I have heard that if the new slim doesn't have enough ventilation that it will cause lines to go across the screen...but not what you are describing. It's probably too new to find any problems like what you are describing by I'm unable to help you with my awesome googling skills. :p

    I'd just call Xbox. They have solid customer service. If you can't figure it out, they're the best choice.

    Thanks for the google attempt :D
    I'd love to do that but unfortunately I am in Afghanistan, so sending it back would be pointless. I will have to wait 'til i get home.l

    I didn't say send it back, I said call them. At least you'd get a diagnosis.

    Hmm... sorry, i wish i could help, but i think maybe you've just got a faulty one. A warranty should fix that up :)

    I've had no trouble with mine. sorry i couldn't be much help, just thought i'd throw that out there.
