Re: new Xbox slim still have hardware problems?
A red light on the power brick means that there is a problem with the power brick, not necessarily the console, but I don't know what this guy's problem is.
The new Xbox 360 model shuts down automatically if it gets too hot. This will happen when morons put it on the carpet in a tight space within an entertainment center.
My older model 360 is on a flat and hard surface with plenty of room on all sides, and I don't have a problem with it.
