Game freezes - goes blurry, but no red lights

My son says the game (tried several games) freezes and then the picture goes blurry, but none of the red lights come on. Is this a heat problem?

I had the same problem for about 3 weeks until one night I restarted it 3 or 4 times in succession after freezing and the RRoD (Red Ring of Death) appeared. 

If you try to send it back without the RRoD, it'll cost you about $99. You can always call up 8004myxbox and tell them that you've gotten the RRoD; they can't know for sure. They'll then send you a shipping label to send it out.

Game freezes during game play


Your Xbox is probably overheating, it just may not overheat to the point where it red rings. I would suggest red ring fixing it, and post results if you try it.
