First of all, don't do the towel trick. It will ruin your Xbox 360 even more and over-heat the components, ruining the mainboard. What you should do is try replacing the AV Cable or wiping the metal area of the AV Cable Slot with a damp cloth. If that doesn't solve it then you should heat up the mainboard with a heatgun, using circular motions. I must warn you, don't keep the heatgun in a certain area for too long or else you will damage your mainboard. Good luck.

I had the same problem. if your sure its a problem with the console and not the cable or your TV then i recommend calling microsoft and seeing if they will fix it for free. if your warranty is up and you dont want to pay you can try what worked for me. "the towel trick" check out youtube for good how to videos.

Blank screen

its most likely corroded battery terminals so take the batteries out and clean the terminals with some alchohol and then try. if nothing happens then your gameboy is dead. A cold environment is a good place to store electronics so I don't think it is that. most gameboy problems are caused by ageing of the device.

PS3 shows a blank screen when I use the RCA jacks but works well when watching DVD movies when using a HDMI cable. When using the HDMI cable the sound is distorted whe I insert a game disk

Well heres the problem when you set your ps3 to be on 1080p using a hdmi cable the rca jacks wont work. to reset it power down the console. Then hold your finger on the power button you will hear it beep twice i believe rca jacks should be working now you will have to do that everytime unless you change it with hdmi cable plugged in to where you can see.

The screen freezes and the images is frozen and distorted

This can sometimes occur prior to console failure. This happened to me just before I got the red ring.

Does this happen as soon as you turn it on? Or is it just in games? Or perhaps a particular game?

All I can say is, check your cables, push them in just to be sure, check that the power supply light is yellow, or green when the console is running.

It's impossible to provide a solution to a problem with so few details but I hope this helps you.

Let me know.

You're going to have to send it in for repair. It sounds like it's out of warranty, which is unfortunate.
