Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox 360- no sound/picture but seems to be on

In the middle of a Halo3 online game, the picture went "grainy". I turned the console off to see if that would clear it up. No luck. Since this event, the console seems to turn on (light on front and I can actually turn the console on/off with the wireless controller), but the LCD TV simply says "Not supported mode". Any suggestions??

    I had the same issue with my Samsung 42" HDTV and Xbox 360. It had worked for almost a year without issue then the picture went grainy while playing Call Of Duty 4. I unplugged the console and game from the wall for about a half hr based on another forum recommendation. This fixed it for about 2 weeks then the picture went grainy again and back to "not supported mode". I've tried everything for a fix including different component cables etc and nothing seems to work.

    i was playing NCAA 09 and then the picture started changing from reddish to bluish.then i turned it of and turned it back on and it still did it. then i waited about 3 or 4 days and it turned on and everything, but there was no picture or sound.i knew it was working because i knew how to make start a game without seeing the screen so i did and it started the fan like it does regularly.then i switched from HDMI to component and it still didnt show up.then i thought it my be the TV so i switched TVs and it still didnt show up.i went to xbox.com and that didn't help so now i came here.

This is a long-shot but...

If you can,using a different Tv. check the 360's video output settings ( Dashboard, My Xbox section, System settings?) -Maybe it updated at some point and automatically changed the original settings. Some( if not all ) 360's have a specific setting for HD output.

Also, check the Video/audio output cable from your Xbox to Tv, for a while some 360s came with a cord that could be changed between Component and RCA.

Online Halo 3 Unreadable disc message


A lot of people are having the same problem with this game and other games like madden. I have seen one solution that may help you and that is to lay your console horizontally instead of vertically. This has help some people but not others. It seems to be a problem with the cdrom in the 360. Not the game itself. On newer models of the 360 this problem does not occur as microsoft have upgraded the drive.
If your 360 is still under warrenty I would send it back for repair or replacement, I know this is annoying but it may be your only solution.

I hope this helps

Is the disc warm? Let it cool off or maybe its because the disc is scratched which means you need to fix it.
