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.

Screen keeps fading out leaving a distorted image even when fully charged??

The problem is from the ribbon that connects the screen to the main board of the phone. It is weak and not working properly, that is why you are having the distorted image and the fading screen. I will strongly advice you get the ribbon replaced and the phone will be in good condition once again.
Hope this information helped you.

Philips 46-inch Rear Projection with bowed image?? slight distortion

You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.

DC400 Screen only showing slanted multicolorlines

No this is clearly a CCD sensor problem ( CCD generates image in v-cams and still digital cameras ) if the sensor is outputting too much noise then your image will be distorted just like yours is. If the sensor is outputting nothing then camera shows blank screen ( also notice that with this problem you can playback OK ). Replace CCD block.
