It can be a major hardware faliure, but has also been known to be your 360 thermal shutdown. (ie if you let it cool down and try again should be ok)

being someone who had it happen to them, for me it was hardware failure where my 360 would not work and it had to be sent in for repairs

True it only clips on but uses your USB for a power source and causes your 360 to lose power for its' own internal components.
