Check the back of your xbox to make sure all output cords are plugged in then look at your input cords (red, white, and yellow cords) are plugged into the corresponding color on your tv.

When i turn the atari on the tv screen only has coloured lines or a green screen and a buzzing like sound

Wow. The pic shows a rather ancient console. Is this what you're working with? :D

OK, if this is the '80's model Atari, this has been around a very long time and probably has seen it's better days being knocked around, slammed to the floor, exposed to dust/moisture/extreme temperature fluctuations in the attic, so it's likely that the ICB (integrated circuit board) is damaged to some extent. My vote is on that.

However, if you're intent on having a go at playing this pile of historic... erm... technology, break out the can of compressed air (bought at computer stores) or an air compressor and spray out the game card socket, the cards themselves at the connectors and, since this is an analogue console, the switches and buttons as well.

Also make sure your connection to the tv is solid and that you're on the right channel selected on the back of your console.

Good luck.

360 turnson but no pic just sound

This common problem .
there are about 9 solder balls connections
right under the G.P.U. Hot Spot and after repeated
heating /cooling cycles these connections began to
fatigue and break open giving you R.R.o.D. or freeing
white -green vertical lines ... and no video.
Solution is a proper x clamp mod and if
done right a most hardware error are
eliminated .

PS3 won't even show the menu screen

I suggest trying to reset the system by turing the system off first. ( Do not cut the power switch off in the back of the system). Then hold the on button for 3 beeps. See what happens.

Picture scrambling and no sound.

inspect your cables your a/v cables make sure there is no breaks in the cable at all if using a rf adaptor please make sure you are on the right channel and the rf adaptor is also on the right channel.

you may need new cables and if that does not work then its something internal on the unit.

Yes. That is normal. You can change that or switch it to a desktop picture (background) altogether. Update 2.2 came out last night and will enable BD-Live and better web-browsing. Good luck!! :)
