Xbox 360 issue.

Alright so ive been looking everyone on the net to find the answer but it seems like my situation is somewhat unique =/
ive had my xbox for about 2 years now, and it has been working perfectly fine with no isses up till just yesterday when i was playing it later in the day on live the screen flashed green stripes kinda, and the image was distorted and it started screeching, so i shut it off and turned it back on and tried again, it works fine for about 20 - 30 mins before it does the exact thing again, so i figure my disk is bad and i stop playing for the day, today im playing rockband again for about 20 - 30 mins and it just goes striped green screen and no sound. i have no idea whats going on with it!

Hello Snarker it sounds like you have a bad AV cable, try replacing it with a different one( It will costs $5-10). If there is still a problem try removing your HDD ( the hard drive which is removed from the top of your xbox 360). If neither of those seem to fix your screen's issue, you may have an internal device that has overheated or come loose, I would recommend try leaving your xbox on and see if red rings appear on your console Like this(they might be in a different idea I am just letting you know where to look) xbox 360 issue. - 9ca118f.jpg. If they do you can send your xbox back to Microsoft wait 2-4 weeks and get it back for free.

I hope that helped and if you need anymore assistance please let me know.

Im having problems with my x box 360 parental control just bought from a friend..... ive been trying different codes but nothing seems to be working can someone help me out with this problem

Master unlock codes for the XBox 360 are unique to the console and are based on the serial number. Because of this, you'll have to contact XBox Customer Support to obtain the master unlock to reset your console's settings.

Hello! The long number you have given me is actually the serial code of your specific Xbox 360. This number has nothing to do with the model it is or the "type of Xbox" it is, it's simply just the unique serial key that has been given to your Xbox so that it can distinguish itself from other Xbox's in instances when you send it in for repairs. Here's a website that has a detailed explanation to determine what type of Xbox you have, I hope it helps out! :) Help me identify my XBOX 360 please Xbox 360 Answers for Xbox 360...

My xbox 360 doesnt want to read the game. when i put in gears of war, it tells me to open tray. i open it then close it and again it tells me to open tray. ive done the clean cd and still the same thing....

Unfortunately this is a common issue with the xbox. If you have tried all the steps that are provided on the xbox support website, it may be time to call xbox support and get your xbox repaired. If it is out of warranty, I'd honestly just get a new one cause the repairs run about $120 out of warranty.

This is a very odd situation you are having, because what is unique about HDMI is that it transfers video AND audio. Make sure there isn't more than one HDMI port on your TV, that should help you out.

Disc drive won't work

Alright, this means that your disc drive went out.... the part runs approximate 50 bucks off of ebay... that includes shipping and handling... YES! model # for disc drive must be EXACTLY the same... it will say right on your disc drive what kind you need.... For a tutorial on taking your xbox 360 apart... go to this link: .. Alright after that.... DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR OTHER DISC DRIVE... YOU WILL NEED IT!. or at least the chip from the inside.. This video shows you exactly what to do with your new and old disc drive.: . I had this exact same issue and it works wonders now. you see the chip in your old disc drive has memory for your specific xbox ... since each is unique... GOOD LUCK! :D
