OT : Xbox one issue -shuts down after 5 seconds

Alright guys, not sure if it's perfect place for thread like this, but this forum never let me down and there are a lot of people using Xbox, so since I'm kinda desperate at the moment I decided to give it a try. Maybe someone had a similar experience and would be able to help me in any way (sorry for any language mistakes, English is not my native, so just gonna try to make my post as clear and simple as I can).

I own an Xbox One since I belive 3,5 year. Using it pretty much only for FIFA (and some Forza games) and it never let me down until yesterday. So in the evening I turned the consol off (using the "always-on" I belive, the thing you press the Xbox button on a pad and "Turn off the console" - I usually do it that way), and the next day when I was trying to turn it on, there's just a beep sound, the Xbox logo on the console lights up and after like 4-5 seconds there's another "beep" and it shuts down. The light on the brick is orange, when I turn on the console it changes to white for the few seconds and when the console shuts down it goes back to orange.

Warranty has already expired so more likely I'm going to give the console to someone who repairs consoles etc, but before I do so I want to get as much info as possible. From what I've found in the internet it might be the brick issue (would probably be the cheapest to fix), maybe something is wrong with a soft or maybe it's a motherboard?

Anyone has any tip? I've found a video on youtube with the exact same situation, so gonna link it here.



Any help would be much appreciated, since I have 2-3 weeks of a bit spare time and can't get myself lost in the new FIFA and Forza :< maybe someone knows exactly what the issue is and what could be the price of fixing it?

Cheers!

    Alright thanks for the suggestions, didn't try the hairdryer method, tried A LOT of different ones tho and didn't work out. Resetting the power brick was one of the first things I've done. Got tilited already and brought it to a guy who repapirs consoles etc so gonna have to wait now anyway. Thanks a lot guys, hope it's not gonna be anything serious. Cheers!

    I have that issue all the time if I switch my Xbox off at the mains.
    I have to try and 'catch' the xbox on a full reset (Hold the power button down for 10 seconds) then try turn it on again, usually works for me after a few tries.

    Do you have an external hard drive plugged in? I had this issue on my old Day One Xbox, turns out it was the external drive.

    Well not exactly, I've been searching for a fix whole day, came here late tbh. Still would feel better if I knew what's exactly going on and how much money should I prepare to be able to play FIFA again haha :D

    No I don't, I've also tried all kind of things such as resetting brick, switching hdmi, turning on by pad, plugged in to both monitor and tv and a few others, nothing worked, probably it's a motherboard I'm afraid. Still hope it's just a brick issue, but we'll see.
