Xbox 360 freezes and Dotted Lines Appear

My Xbox 360 freezes after a few seconds and dotted lines appear. Sometimes it works when Im still in the menu screen without a game loaded. However, when that happens, the game will freeze like so as soon as I load a saved game.

    I have the same problem too. I turned on my 360, i put in a dvd and after a half hour or so of playin it froze and the screen turned green. Now, when i turn it on, it starts up normaly and after a few minutes it freezes and doted lines apear. If i turn it off and try again immediately i get the three red lights but if I wait 15-30 min it powers on...i still get the three red lights though.

Xbox 360 loading fault with dotted screen, checkered. freezes on loading screen even. sometimes it can appear there are several lines down the screen aswell so it may be 2 faults.


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

My xbox freezes and lines/dots apear on the screen


The graphics processor, and second graphics chip both require a reflow. A special BGA reflow 'heat' machine is required.

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.

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.

Vertical dotted line


ok either the tv is screwed and has a line of bad pixels, or there is something wrong with your xbox graphics adapter on the motherboard. Try buying a new xbox video out cable. if that doesnt work, get it serviced
