Screen Problem! Need Serious Help!!

The other day i was playing my 360 and the screen started to get fuzzy, but the next day the screen was just black and crazy dots and lines were showing up but i could still hear the xbox welcome noise. It isnt the cords though because i tried two different sets and its not my tv because i tried it two also. i think it might be the socket where you put the grey end thats on the opposite end of the wires.Do I need to send my xbox in for a new one or is this fixable? Christmas is next week!!
HELP!

MS recommended and a repair is wise if this is a constant issue. Some people tackle this problem by opening up their Xbox 360 and finding the problem themselves. Those who do report a small magnet that holds the disc in place, loose or not connected. They simply glue this back on; however, opening the Xbox 360 renders the warranty invalid, therefore future repairs may be denied and a fee may be placed.

Fuzzy Screen Then No Screen


This can mean that the artifacts are problems with the lead free solder and in my experience it will get worse, its usually on games that require heavy graphics then its definately the lead free solder problem and will lead to either 3rrod, e73 or e74 etc etc.

my advice is dont play it to death, keep it cool and if you want it to be ok i would do the x-clamp replacement and possibly re-solder the whole board. this is done by the use of an IR oven similar to what we use, OR you can use a normal heatgun but i dont recommend it because it can cause damage and knock fuses off the mainboard if not used properly.

in the meantime id play it for an hour a time and make sure its not in any cupboard or anything. getting something like an intercooler can help. We use something called SystemX which cures this type of problem.

See how you go.

Xbox 360 makes televison screen fuzzy and difficlt to see


Firstly check the system configuration blade on your Xbox 360 startup screen and check your display settings, if you've got an Xbox Elite/New Premium and have HDMI cable then it should be set as Intermediate/1080i/p settings, if you have the component cables then it should all be set as default.

If that isn't the problem and your games are still loading up with a fuzzy screen then there is either something wrong with the cables in your Xbox or your TV can't handle the graphics that the Xbox is producing and you will have to go into display settings and try setting them as either lower settings or higher settings depending on the TV you have.

It will help if you can provide details to me on your TV too, I'm not as good with TV's as I am Videogame Consoles/PC's but it will help me if I want to solve your queries further.

Xbox 360 Blurry/Fuzzy Screen


The machine is overheating and the graphics chip on the main board is acting up cause of it. Make sure there is no dust or dirt blocking the air vents that would cause the system to heat up more then normal.

If that doesn't do it then maybe think about getting a cooler for the system, here is a website that talks about a few of them. Click here.

If that doesn't help then your mainboard is going bad and would need to be replaced.

My Xbox 360 keeps showing a black screen


1. Get 3 towels then switch your Xbox 360 on.
2. Wrap the Xbox 360 in the towels [Note - You must cover the WHOLE Xbox otherwise it won't work].
3. Leave your xbox for 25 mins in the towels.
4. When the 25 mins is over take off the towels of and let your Xbox 360 to cool for 20 minutes, enjoy fixed gaming for the next 4-7 days. Once you get a blank screen repeat this process.

[Why Overheat it?]
When overheating it you attempt to solder the dis-connected wires back to the motherboard.
I recommend getting it fixed instead.

[What does it Fix?]
This fixed the Red Ring of Death, and the Blank Screen of Death

[DANGER]
I do not take responsibility for this. This is mainly for those without warranty or money to repair.

The premise is to wrap the towel around the 360 and to let it heat up. This will weaken solder points and hopefully re-join broken connections. The problem with this method is that you have no control over what solder points are weakened and there is no way to prevent further damages caused by the heat. It is better to send a 360 in for repair with the three year warranty that MS put on the 360s, because if you try the towel method and then send it in for repairs, they will know by the solder points being misshapen and it will void your warranty forcing you to pay for the repairs.
