Ouya Support – Burning Ouya

Burning Ouya: When I put my  Ouya to sleep but when I come back to it later it never wakes up. When I press the power button on my Ouya I touched the side and I notice my console is burning!!! OMG!!


The burning Ouya is a bizarre Ouya Support issue and it happened not on my developer Ouya, or my kickstarter Ouya but an Ouya that I got from a retail outlet like Target. My router is loaded with DD-WRT and I was able to detect all of the Ouyas in my house are constantly sending data over the network (some more then others depending on how many background services you have going) .


If you unplug it and let it cool down it will then allow you to power it back on again. But it indicates that the processor is not going into sleep mode with the rest of the system and since the fans do not engage when in sleep it overheats. Maybe this can be something that is fixed with the next update and we will never see this happen again. But if it continues to happen to you contact Ouya Support to get a replacement.
