Sounds silly but I assume you've put a game in right?
What you're describing is what happens when either you have no game inserted OR the game isnt recognised (try the breathing trick - http://forums.console-world.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=3.0)

hope this helps

Xbox 360 screen is predominantly yellow. Blue shows up, but red and green are non-existent. Also it freezes on Merc 2 when I try to go online. Any ideas?


This seems to be the next ROD issue. The video cards/chips on the XBOX360 seem to having the same issues as the CPU. In the ROD issue, the CPU heat sink is coming lose due to warping or other issues. The same thing is happening for the video. When it comes loose, you will lose some of your colors and/or all video. For me, mine turned green then later nothing. But I had sound still. The XBOX repair places should be able to fix it or there is a kit you can get online.

While im plaing my psp, the screen freezed and i restarted it, when i turned on my psp (theres a green light) nothing happens the screen is empty then a few minutes the green light gone what happened


I guess you have custom firmware. If so, you can use a pandora battery to solve the problem. If you do not know how to make a pandora battery or if this doesn't work send me an email or add me on eclipse_09_28@hotmail.com. But pandora is most likely to be the solution. I had the same kinna problem but I was updating it thats the only difference. The green light is on and the screen was blank and then the light turned off. So I used a Pandora Battery and it fixed. :P
