Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Black lines 1/8 of an inch apart going down my screen when playin

Whenever i turn my xbox on i get these weird discolorations. During loading screens a bunch of blue dots appear on the black portions of the screen and sometimes they will flash sometimes they will be solid and not move. On video games, such as CoD 5, when at the main menu nothing is wrong with it, but during actual game play there will be dotted lines going down my screen. It's somewhat like in the matrix how the green lines go down the screen and the people can read it. Except my lines are black and continuously go down.

I had this happen a few times, then after a while it stoped working all together. In the end I was getting the E74 message code appear when I turned on my xbox 360.

You'll probley get this happen with yours soon, the E74 code means theres a problem with your visual display.

Sometimes it can be as simple as changing your HD Lead or scart lead, whatever your using. If you know someone else with a xbox try theirs.

If this doesn't work you'll have to send it off to mircosoft, it will be free if your still under warrenty, if not I think it's about £100+

Or you could go on www.cd24-7.co.uk and buy one of their DIY kits.

Hope this helps.

hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

It sounds like your Video card and/or motherboard are starting to give out or your LCD is giving way. Try plugging the laptop into an external screen and see if it still acts strangely or even displays on the external monitor.
