    i have the same problem.

    except i took my xbox to esperance (7 hours drive from us) and it worked fine there. then when i got back the bastard didnt work. well, the audio came through, the loading thing made its sound but not visual.

    i connect my xbox through a stereo and into the tv, but i also checked by plugging the xbox directly into the tv. still no diference...

    god damn it you'd think they would have done something to stop this, or at least make a public solution. ive seen countless times where this has hapened and mostly to people xbox's where there is no previous problems.

Check you cable. where it plugs into ur xbox there is a switch that leads to either tv or hdtv
make sure it is on the type of tv your using (tv - tv, hdtv - hdtv)

Hello I have a xbox 360elite, I got a game here in spain and my xbox is from the USA. Game is telling me that my zone is wrong. How do I change this?

Don't believe you can. The Elite you have is hardwired for NTSC games and the game is not the right format. The only possible way is to flash your firmware.

Picture is distorted

IF your TV has a magic focus button on it that might help. And a good way to fix the red rings issue is when you get them you have to unplug your console for a day and replug it in and everything should be fine, atleast that is was my friend told me.
