Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Xbox 360 no video no audio no red lights

Hello, my xbox 360 appears to have a bad video card.  it started with the screen turning different shades of colors while playing games, such as GTA4.  After about two weeks, the 360 would turn on fine, and read the controllers, but no audio/video would appear.  it is NOT the TV, and NOT the cords.  i believe the GPU is blown, but am certainly not an expert.  it is past warranty so i pried it open, removed every single piece up to the motherboard, and can not see a visible malfunction. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me out!    i was wondering what i could possibly do myself, or if i truly do have to send it into a computer repair shop.

    My Xbox 360 elite went out after i started playing gta4 the screen turned green and than i turned it off and back on and the red ring of death came on but i took it apart and put the washers and new bolts on the heat sinks but now i dont have the rrod but there is no audio/video at all so i was wondering if the video card went out and if so is this possible to get repaired at a computer shop or tv electronic shop.

    so your saying my cpu or gpu overheated?

  • snakexxjenki Nov 22, 2008

    should i remove the thermal glue holding the gpu and cpu down also?  i have cleaned them off, but since i havent found the 'arctic 5' the xbox overheats and shuts off before anything appears on the screen.

    the 360 played fine up to a certain point until it began playing with malformed colors showing primarily purple and green. it happened when i was playing Gears of War 2 and when i went to examine the cords and tv it seemed fine

Please Help!

Same here i finally got it working though. U need to clean off the cpu and gpu then add some arctic 5 .after boot it up block the vents with a towel and leave it for 5 minutes then turn it off .if it got hot enough it will set the video card solder back in place .i recomend pushing down on the two heatsinks while its cooling down .after that leave it off to cool right down then turn it on while holding y and the righ trigger until it reboots.thats what fixed my video u might have to try a few time before it works depending on how hot it got.

Red light come on xbox360 what is the problem


If you get red light around your xbox power button the you have red ring of death. This is when your Xbox has overheated. While im not all that famlier with Xbox I have read there is a 6 cent fix (cause you use 6 pennies) You would have to read up because as I sid before not great with Xbox. I'm sure microsoft would do it to but hey if you good with tools 6 cents sounds pretty cheap.
Im sorry for your loss
Good Luck and Happy Gaming-Koscoe

When i turn my xbox 360 on it starts running hard then the controller lights on the device start flashing red.


Four lights around the power button flash red on your Xbox 360 console. Four flashing lights indicates that the console does not detect an audio/video (AV) cable.
Note Four flashing red lights will not appear on consoles that have both an AV port and an HDMI port.
