What is up with my 360 when ever i play it for about 30min it shows green fuzzy lines down the screen of my tv and purple fuzzy lines down my tv screen and after those two happen sometimes it will have red...


well definitely video issues of some sort. if you have a second video cable (or hdmi cable if your unit supports that) give that a try.
*assuming that doesn't work Unfortunately it sounds more likely that it's an issue with the video card inside the xbox. this may be repairable by a professional.
if you have it under warranty i would contact microsoft for a replacement/repair https://myservice.xbox.com/en-US/Pages/Welcome.aspx or call Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX

Black screen


I had this same problem. What happened to me was that I mixed up the color coding on the tv cables. You can try to check if you did this. If not, call the help line on xbox.com.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting


Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?
