Tip & How-To about Video Game Consoles & Games

Xbox 360 no sound

Hi the problem you are having will lead to the red ring of death, you get the rrod when the gpu and cpu chip have over heated, as you get the sound and no picture or loss of both this says that the gpu is over heating and needs fixing.
you can try the following
1 switch the xbox off and leave it off for at least an hour
2 check all air vents are free from dust
3 make sure your not using the xbox on carpet or on top of anything like dvd or sky box
any of the above will cause it to over heat so make sure the xbox is not in a confined spaced and not on top of anything else

remove the leads from back of xbox and remove hard drive, plug all the leads back in making sure the leads are pushed in properly in the xbox and back of telly, then if you still have the problem try and borrow a friends video lead to try on your xbox.

if it still dont work then this suggests it has over heated and the damage is done so check if you have any warranty before you do anything with it, then if you have warranty take it back and get it exchanged or if your warranty it out you need to get the gpu and cpu heat sink changed and the x clamps removed and getting this done should get it working.

but you need to know that say out of every 10 i do work on only 2 wont work and would be classed as scrap, i repair these for about 25 quid plus parts which is about a fiver so your looking at roughly them prices to get it fixed, i work on the basis that if i dont fix the problem i wont charge for the work i just charge for the parts used.

let me know if you need further assistance

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
