Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox 360 screen gets distorted

When i'm playing the game the the screen all of a sudden gets pixelated/distorted. I don't think there is an over heating problem because the console is not hot and there are no red lights either.
Here's a few pictures to show you what i'm talking about:¤t=Photo0187.jpg¤t=Photo0186.jpg

    Are you sure that's all you need? I put a fan behind the xbox and it didn't seem to make a difference. I'm tryin to find the best way to not spend any money. lol

    Same thing happened to me. It's not a drive or disc problem because I get the issue even after removing the disc. Overheating doesn't initially appear to be a problem because it appears after only a few minutes of game play.

You do need a cooling fan on the 360 xbox, we have one with no problems, the cooler is cheaper than the console.

When I play games on the xbox 360 my screen has pixelation issues. It gets pixels and charectors and frames jump.

try to install the games on the HDD, that way it will load it on the hard disk. it may be that the lens of your drive is getting burnt out.

Graphics problem on Xbox 360

I think this is less of an isolated issue but a universal one. As Halo 2 (and I'm assuming the version of Medal of Honour you speak of) are original xbox games, these can be prone to graphics distortion due to being emulated. I often find my Halo 2 campaign mode sometimes "ghosts" or leaves certain outlines stuck on the screen, which is irritating but nothing too major. If this happens in any designated xbox 360 game, search the web for similar problems with the game itself, if not give Microsoft a call. Bring food, it's a long call wait :)
