Xbox 360 stretched screen out and cannot fix it now

I have a sanyo 24 flat and one day my kids were playing xbox 360 and when they were done i went back to watch regular tv and these odd numbers appeared at the bottom left hand corner of my screen. When I tried to make them go away the screen zoomed in and now my tv is stuck all zoomed in and the picture looks tall and stretched out. Please what can I do I emailed sanyo and that was of no help to me all t they said was to just read the manual and well theres nothing in there on that subject.

    well I called customer service and they said to unplug the tv and as I plug it back in while I hold the menu button down and a menu which allows u to make the vertical and diagonal adjustments will appear

Have you checked the aspect ratio?? May be that when the kids had the X-Box hooked up they simply changed the aspect to zoom.

My kids and I received an xbox 360 for Christmas about 3 years ago. It was only played on the weekends. One day it just stopped working without warning. When a game is put in, it does nothing, same...

Don't worry this problem is quite common.

It happens because the sensors on the back of the drive are overheating, the good news is that you do not normally need to replace the drive all you need to do is stop the heat build up.

To do this you can send it in and they will fix it for you although you will be looking at about 4 weeks waiting time and then you will also have to pay out $140 in repair fees.

If you don't want to get it fixed this way the other way is to use an Xbox 360 Repair guide and repair it yourself and the hardest thing about this is finding a guide that will show you how to do this.

I have put a list of the best guides HERE - if you find this helps please rate it so it can help others.

Brand new xbox and fable 2 disc. Will not play!

This will surely lead to the red ring of death people are talking about, i got that the other day, sent my xbox to microsoft and they fixed it for me for free, But you cant have your warranty sticker broken or they wont touch it. Microsoft will fix it for free since it is a problem for nearly all the xbox 360 they made.

Xbox 360 static lines no picture, but sounds,

Log in to your XBox live account and sign up to return your box for service. Even if it is out of warranty Microsoft has been fixing them for free including covering shipping. Our box just went through, took 11 days total.

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

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.

Blank screen on Xbox 360 sometimes

I've had this happen twice now and both times my warranty has just expired by a month, i spend and hour moanin on the phone to xbox but they still want me to pay over £80 to fix it!

So here is what u do; **** and moan to all your friends impotently about it, look at the xbox for long periods of time with distain while muttering insults to yourself, call Bill Gates a complete W**ker repeatedly for a few days and then swallow ur pride in a big lump and end up payin for the damn thing while emtily promising yourself that if it happens again your not getting another one! When it finally does happen again (one month after the warrenty runs out to the day no doubt) repeat the prosses!
