    Sorry if this has been covered, I did a search on 'xbox repair' and came up empty.

    Has anyone ever tried to repair a faulty Xbox on their own? I have a 2 year old XBOX which powers off at random intervals. Also the power button does not seem to work. I have already bought a new one, but before I junk the old one I thought I may try fixing it.

    Any suggestions before I open the box?

    I'd suggest that rather than junking it, sell it on ebay stating the problem and selling it as-is. You may be shocked to find that someone will still buy it for as much as $30 or more plus shipping. That will definitely get you a new game at least.

    Do an ebay search for "broken xbox" and check it out.

    you can get a 75$ credit (canadian funds) at ebgames for a broken xbox..it's probably around 50$ USD..good for a game or whatever..better then throwing it out..
