Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

5 Answers

My xbox 360 has no picture, screen went red, now does not work.

I was playing tomb raider and getting past this glitch, when everything in the game went red, so I knew it was not blood from dying. LOL. I turned my Xbox 360 off and when I went to turn it back on, no images, just sound. I get a grren or red light at the top of my TV, no picture..All is plugged in correctly..I have tried to re-set also as suggested, and everything is plugged in right and where it is supposed to be and it still won't work. I am not doing the towel trick as I know that is only temp fix. I will try a different TV though but if that does not work, then I am screwed. LOL..However I dont have the red rings of death yet, thank god.

  • maggotboy Nov 18, 2008

    i was playing cod5 when my tv screen changed pictures like a camera phone when you turn it on negative.so i turned off then turned it back on and i could hear the audio but no picture!!!!!

  • Anonymous Nov 20, 2008

    I just got this problem a few hours ago. Not sure what im going to do now...



    First i was playing COD, when my screen went all green. Then flashed blue a few time, beofre going back to green.



    I let it cool down, thinking it might have overheated, but now there is no image or sound.



    It's not my TV. As i can watch normal TV on it. The only problem is. I can't find my XBOX serial code. Its not under the flap on the box. Can i find it anywhere else?



    Thanks

    Ya, I'm screwed too. Same problem, second xbox just over a year by a month. Last one was the red ring issue now this. I'm getting a little fed up by the delicate nature of this console. May not get another one. May not be able to afford it. Sucks! Sound no picture, Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  • Anonymous Dec 03, 2008

    There is no picture just the sound and TV is all black with some red stripes



  • babee_tai Dec 03, 2008

    I was palying call of duty and all of the sudden the game just went black and just the sound is on..os what the problem? How can I fixed it?

  • Anonymous Dec 03, 2008

    same problem but screen went black...came back but graphics were fuzzy , then went to black screen again, now nothing but sound

  • Anonymous Feb 24, 2009

    My xbox 360 is not working however the sound is working. i have tried this using hi def settings and also standard on two different televisions. My sound works but my screen is not showing a picture. I also do not have a red ring so this is a little confusing. I have even tried it with a scart plug and it did not work.

  • huhwhatsgoin Apr 16, 2009

    mine is similliar the screen got fuzzy then went out on me. At first I thought it was just the tv. nope! then i went and bought some new cables. nope! once again its this faulty box of wires going out on me again. Dont get me wrong I like this system but I could very well have to go out and buy a new one cuz mines out of warranty( or so they say I thought it was for 3 yrs not 1). Which will cost me 100 dollars for a refurbished piece of junk (only to go out on me again) id be better off buying a new one. If i buy a new i ought to send in my junk box with a recipt for my new one and demand a reembursement( or however you spell that).

  • oNice May 11, 2010

    If you hear sounds, but nothing is visible make sure you are on the right TV line or INPUT.



    I need to know one other thing though, does it work for other games, or does it not work at all anymore?

Look people i have had the same problem as you lot sayin that you have no picture but sound, and alot of you are not using the towel trick. yes its a temp fix but i done the towel trick 4 months ago now and mine is still working.......

all i did was leave it on for 15 mins wrapped in 2 towels. took it out. turned it on it worked. then i left it on for a while by my living room window so its well ventilated and wont heat up. my xbox is freezing cold nowadays with no over heating.

so if you use the towel trick do what i did. you will be sattisfied.

Thank you

I have had this problem and have since fixed it, its a graphics problem as the console can not cope with the pic resolutions with new games which is making the component work to hard.

If you require the method to fix contact me via sicoe28@yahoo.co.uk

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?
