Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Crazy color??? My xbox was working fine until a few days ago. The sound and picture are on and fine but the color switches to a crazy 80 look. It's not a smooth shade of colors at all. It looks more blocks and dicey. The colors there but it's just not a smooth look to it. It's hard to explain but can anyone help cause I have no clue what to do. I've tried different hook ups on the TV and I've also tried different TVs. If I turn my xbox on and off a few time then the whole picture goes black with little white dots going across the screen at an angle. The sounds there but no picture. But like I said that only happens if I turn it on and off a few times.

It sounds like you both have problems with the video card. If your 360s are some of the earlier ones then that is more that likely the problem (it happened to a friend of mine). 18004MYXBOX is the Xbox support number and will try to fix it over the phone of have you ship it out to them (they send you a box and its all paid for).

My Xbox 360 has been working fine, but a few days ago the picture disappeared. I could still hear everything, but not see it. So, I brought some new wires and tried them, but it's still not working....


More than likely this is a hardware issue with the Xbox and will need to be repaired. You can call Microsoft at 1800myxbox. There is something you do to try and work around the problem and fix it but it's not recommended. You can find the details here:

I can tell you that I did this when my Xbox no longer had video and it did work for me for a while but I still ended up sending it in in the end.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Xbox 360 static lines no picture, but sounds,


Log in to your XBox live account and sign up to return your box for service. Even if it is out of warranty Microsoft has been fixing them for free including covering shipping. Our box just went through, took 11 days total.

My XBOX 360 has a Sound but no picture issue.


Well the main solution that you're going to get from Microsoft is to unplug everything from your console and your TV and then wait a couple minutes and plug it back in while everything is off. If the problem still persists, instead of buying a new 360, try borrowing a friend's AV cable and see if that works. Try not to unplug or replug anything while the console or TV is still on. Or it could just possibly be all of the jostling around in your suitcase and nothing has come loose enough to stop working until now. Sorry I can't be more helpful, these are just some ideas.

My XBox 360 plays video but has no sound


Put the Hd video cable in the slot and put the regular audio cables in their slot. It should work then.

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting


Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?

The problem is probably that you have put the cords in the wrong places or have used the wrong cords
