Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
After no using my xbox for a while today I am getting the green and red flashing light and a black screen. what can I do?
This is known as the Christmas lights or FRAG frequent red and green error.
Most of the time the screen is blank and if you were doing work recently such as modchipping this could be caused by solder splashes on the mobo or a shot MCPX chip. Removing the MCPX chip is impossible without very expensive equipment so if you can't find any solder splashes or you weren't soldering on the board junk the whole board.
However, since you said that your xbox is original, I would assume that you haven't done any modifications yet so chances are, the xbox can't find an AV cable connected to this unit. If you do have one, please check if your AV cable is damaged (a frayed or damaged wire). Replace your AV cables and your good to go.
