  • pulvinojoe Dec 29, 2008

    I am having a very simiilar problem. My 360 is 3 years old, and over the last few months I was getting some discoloration of the screen during game play. Usually a green tint that would go away after 15 minutes or so. Then yestyerday when I turned the 360 on I hear the sound but the screen is black. I tried replacement cables today, but it did not work. I also tried the reset reccomendation below, but that did not work either. I am not sure what to do next? Any suggestions???

Ok boys now this might work for some of you out there with the "no vedio problem" but it might not if your 360 is actually broken. i talked with microsoft and we worked together to find a small fix. it does not work 100% of the time but there still is a small chance.
Start off making sure the AV adaptor is set to "TV" or "HD" depending on what type of tv you have. then turn on you 360 with your first player controller when the 360 console turns on hold BOTH the left and right triggers and hold them down. then once you see on the console that first player is plugged in hold "Y" this should reset you 360 settings and restart you xbox 360. were not done yet unplug the power cord from the console along with the AV cables, wait 15-20 seconds then plug them back in and turn on the 360 from the consle if this does not fix the "no video problem" then you might want to look online for 360 repair guids, or sell it to gamestop and they will give you $40 store credit for a broken 360, or do what everyone else does send it in to microsoft. good luck boys.

Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem

All you need to do is turn off your box, keep the TV set to the right input. Then unplug your power cable to your box and your video cable. Wait a minute, then plug the power cable back in, then the video cable, then plug it in to your TV. All you need to do now is power your xbox on. Simple.

SOURCE: xbox 360 flickers green and black on the screen

Back again. There is thread on CNET about this as well. My TV has made it's third trip to the repair shop, and Samsung is definitely aware of this problem on 4065F and 4665F LCD TV's manufactured in 2007.

I tried multiple cables and multiple input devices (XBox360 Elite, PC DVItoHDMI, and Scientifc Atlanta DVR with HDMI) all with different cables, all with the flickering.

The only known solution is to have the main board replaced (this should still be under warranty (1 year)) if not they still might replace it. It would cost about 250 in parts and 250 in labor.

If they do not install it correctly (since the boards come from factory and need to be adjusted) the picture will be too dark. Tell them they need to contact Samsung to get the instruction manual for board replacement.

I got my TV back and it has shown no signs of green flickering or signal dropping.

try clearing the memory cache

to clear the xbox 360's memory cache,
1. go to the system blade on your menu(should be the very last one)
2. go down to were it says memory, click on it. this should bring up your hard drive or other storage devices, press a on the one you want to empty
3. once youve gotten to the screen were it shows rename or format your storage device, input Y,X,X,LB,RB,X,X and a prompt will come up asking you if you want to empty your systems cache.

SOURCE: i need help xbox 360 black screen

OK, I think I can slove your problem.

There is a slide setting thing on your av cord that gives you the option of using TV or HDTV (look near the end of the cord that slides into the XBOX 360), You will see two choices for settings on the cord "TV" or "HDTV".
Just make sure that you have it on the correct setting. I had the smae problem. My XBOX 360 is not hooked up to HDTV, so for me it should stay on TV. But somehow when I took out the cord I accidently slide it to HDTV.

I simply slide it back to the "TV" Setting and in about 30 seconds it worked perfectly.

I hope this helps you.

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

It's possible that your Xbox is sending out a picture that's higher resolution than your TV can display. Try reducing the resolution of the Xbox video output.

I had this same problem. What happened to me was that I mixed up the color coding on the tv cables. You can try to check if you did this. If not, call the help line on xbox.com.
