Xbox 360 flickers across screen

Whenever i play any game i get flickers across the screen. it never happens in game videos, dvds, or the dashboard. it only happens during actual gameplay. i've got a standard av cable with no switch for HD or component jacks. xbox support told me it was my av cable but how come it wouldn't flicker during dvds?

It is your av cable however the components in the cable get a small static boost when u are using your controller so it becomes an intermittent fault ie;....when in game vidios or watching dvds, u rarely use the controller so u dont see the flickering and u only see it when in game play because u are in constant contact with the controlls and the components inside the av cable recieve a small static boost causing the interference.

My Xbox 360 plays DVDs, CDs, when I put a game in it will load and the screen will say XBOX but nothing else happens or it will say to play this disk put it in a Xbox 360 console! How can I fix this!


Your disc may be scratched. Try a disc repair kit. If it's a known working game then there may be a defect with the firmware of the 360 which could require a factory reset of the console.

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

XBox 360 - freezing


i suggest unplugging the cat5 cable(the one that provides internet access) or remove the wifi adaptor and test if it runs good. if that doesn't work, then your problem lies with the actual xbox hardware. if it works, you have a very unstable internet connection.
