If it will still play games then you could try modding it again if that is what you did or try modding it to fix the problem then revert it back to the original dashboard.... either way if it does play games you can fix it

Did you attempt to mod this? have you done anything with this. people dont give real specifics because theyre embarassed or dont think to include this. your problem could be that you disrupted a xbox dash update or you screwed with the dashboard yourself modding the xbox. i cant give you a clearer answer tho due to the info provided. please next time try to be more detailed. so a better more accurate answer can be given to your problem.

I have a Hisense 65", everytime I play Xbox or watch movies a bar on the left top corner appears and it's annoying me. How do I stop it from appearing?


That is very annoying, I'm fairly sure that there is a button on the remote that makes it go away. I had the same thing happen to me with a smart TV.

In@yimy xbox 360 wont work with my mic but it did before...bought a new one and it still dont owork


I had this problem before seems like something gets messed up in the controller itself. Do you have a second controller?
If you do then you will want to remove the battery packs from them then switch the mic to the other one plug the batter pack back in then connect to the xbox. This has happened to me about 8 times then my headset will work.
I have turtle beaches and they will stop working every so often. Not sure why this happens just know this works for me.

Once the xbox is turned on, the picture will freeze with static lines and the only way to clear it is to turn it off and back on. sometimes happens even in the dashboard area.


Yes this normally happens before you get the 3 red lights error, it means that the motherboard is warping because of the heat, and you will need to get it fixed.

You can send it in and they will fix it for you or if you dont want to wait you should use an Xbox 360 Repair guide that works!

Dont know password


if that is a password for the xbox live passcode, the passcode being asked everytime you sign in, the password is the password itself when you try to recover your gamertag

if that is a passcode for watching videos, or something.

that is a family settings passcode, the only way to override that is to call tech support, give the console serial number of your xbox of course, the serial number has a unique reset code attached to it..
tech support will give you some things to press on sytem info page of the dashboard to reset the family settings

Xbox live


I am wired from my modem to my Xbox and it signs me in but everytime I put in a game as soon as it gets to the menu, it says "Disconnected from Xbox Live". I press my Xbox button and go to the dashboard and it signs me back in again. Why is this happening?

Xbox 360 unplayabledisk problem


When does this happen?  Does it happen when you put a game disk in (a game that has not been burned or copied to a dvd disk). Or does this happen when you put burned audio cd in?
