What arethe black dots appear when playing a xbox game


These "black dots" you talk abotu could be a variety of things and since you haven't given much detail it's hard for me to say.

Just double check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance so you're certain the problem originates from your Xbox 360.

Hopefully, it's just a problem with your cable, maybe it's not plugged in right or maybe a replacement will fix it.

When I say hopefully, I mean, hopefully it's a cable fault as opposed to an Xbox 360 hardware fault. Variations of black lines or dots, or just general artifacts on screen while using your 360 usually happens prior to a hardware fault usualy concerning the GPU.

I guess it's just a waiting game for you now mate.

Just check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance.

Screen freeze, with green dots!


Its a small group of solder balls 3-4 under the GPU that
have broken in to thhreads , and will disconnect all together
from the main board , it some time will start with a flickery
screen during start up .

The only permanent solution is to dig a hole.... just kiding
The GPU will need to be re-flowed and properly secured to
the PC board .

That fixes the problem permanently
and that goes for 98% of all of The 360s problems

Grey dots running along he screen when im playing games


Grey dots? Well, it sounds to me like the connections are bad, or the cables themselves. Or what you can try doing is cleaning the connections on the console and on the television. Because dust can do that sometimes.

Anyways, hope this helps.

Screen fills with black lines and dots when playing games


Does it ever get the Red Ring of Death? If not, it sounds like it will soon. I have lost 2 360s that way.

Black lines 1/8 of an inch apart going down my screen when playin


I had this happen a few times, then after a while it stoped working all together. In the end I was getting the E74 message code appear when I turned on my xbox 360.

You'll probley get this happen with yours soon, the E74 code means theres a problem with your visual display.

Sometimes it can be as simple as changing your HD Lead or scart lead, whatever your using. If you know someone else with a xbox try theirs.

If this doesn't work you'll have to send it off to mircosoft, it will be free if your still under warrenty, if not I think it's about £100+

Or you could go on www.cd24-7.co.uk and buy one of their DIY kits.

Hope this helps.

Black dots during gameplay only on 360


I had this problem with my very first Xbox 360. It started showing little white dots instead of black though. I just dealt with it for a while, and it finally got to the point where it would fill up the screen fully, to where I could only see my gun in Halo 3 and that was about it. I was forced to call Microsoft and have them fix it.

Another stange graphic problem


This may be an indication of the graphics processor overheating. When the card overheats it tends to leave artifacts like black dots. Newer games typically put harder stresses on consoles than older titles. This would also explain why the dots aren't showing up in menus, menus don't require as much juice as game play. I would blow out the system with some canned air and try playing the system in a cool, well ventilated area to see if that helps. Sometimes this can be a permanent issue with the graphics processor and you would need to send it in to Microsoft.
