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.

TV is randomly showing colours rather than the channel its supposed to be on, How do i fix?

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

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 .

Cant hear outta phone unless on speaker phone

If the problem is intermittent, and is affecting multiple components we are talking about a damaged ribbon cable. This cable feeds information from the main board to the board in the flip top. if damaged, you may see these symptoms or more; flickering screen, scratching or no sound from earpiece, screen blacks out, and all the symptoms may fluctuate when the phone is opened or shut. The only reason your speaker phone still works is its placement on the device. Here is a link to a public site that ranked it the top google results.

pls rate this post as fixya and good luck!!!!!!

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!! :)
