Re: problems with screen

Problam can be with cable, screen, or xbox. try replacing cable first, it is the cheapest and therefore can save you alot of pain. if another cable doesnt solve it, try hooking xbox with another screem (TV or something), if it works, its a screen problem - check for overheating. if it doesnt, you got yourself a messed xbox im afraid.

Re: problems with screen

Im having the exact same issue! I also have the joytech cable. Maybe it is the cable. I am running it with a 19 inch lcd widescreen PC monitor. Having said that, the problem has only started in the last couple of weeks, has MS released a firmware update that may be causing this??

I had the same problem, stuck in a hotel room for 2 days. When I held down the button, next time I turned it on, I got the same prompt with using HDMI output, said yes, and screen went black. However, a screen then came up asking if I could see the image or not, but it has a 30 second time limit before it saves those setting, you have to click "No" on this screen, and it will drop the resolution to 780p instead of 1080 and it should work! Make sure you're paying attention so you don't miss the screen!

Try the game with another TV to see if you will have same problem. If you do not have that problem that means the TV you are using is faulty.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Startup screen goes black.

I would try having the firmware reloaded or updated. Sounds like a problem there. Try going to and downloading the update for playing older xbox games. This also updates the firmware.

Xbox 360 randomely gets a black screen

Well here's the problem the towel trick. Ok the problem with the 360s for the most part is small cracks in the solder which causes a bunch of problem from rrod to this. The towel trick heats up the 360 enough to get the solder flowing again thus providing for a temporary fix. The problem is the solder goes places is shouldn't, thus towel trick ends up messing the 360 up more then it helps. My advice send it in, hopefully you still have the warrenty.
