Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

The screen jumps up and down and is not focused on the screen

The Xbox 360 menu is fine, but as soon as a game or dvd starts to play the screen starts to jump up and down (A lot like an old tv where the vertical hold is fucked). I'm not sure whats wrong with the Xbox 360 cause it's not the quality of the discs cause I put a brand new dvd in that I have never opened before and it did the same thing. I'm thinking that maybe there is something wrong with the laser but I can't be sure. Any ideas and is this covered under the warranty?

My Xbox 360 is fuzzy and has green dots all over the screen


I doubt it's the 360 since everything else is working just fine. The menu works fine, the game works fine. However if you downloaded one of these maps from the marketplace it may be corrupt, and you will have to delete and re-download the map pack.

Xbox 360 reading error


Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
