Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

No Video... When I turn the system on I only get some diagonal fuzzy lines. It worked fine the day before. I get sound and you can hear me going through menus and games read and load fine, I just can't see anything.

Mine did the same thing! i think it is static build up in the tv! Ventilate the room turn tv and xbox 360 off. unplug everthing and make sure the vents are not covered on both the tv and xbox 360. mine has not played up since!

When I turn on my xbox the screen shows lines and colours and green/red dots. I can make out what is on the screen but it is fuzzy. The sound is also wrong, on and off and strange when you can hear it. I...

I would try cleaning the connections to the xbox and the TV. Also you could try connecting with a different type of cable (VGA or use the HDMI cable).
If that doesn't clear things up then you could have a hardward problem with your xbox.

My system works fine but some demo downloads won't play I have sound but the picture shows diagonal lines across the screen

Maybe the Demo Game isn't compatible with your TV, or your PS3. Try going to a friends house (who has a PS3 obviously), and try downloading that game on his. If it works, it could be just your PS3. If not, its probably the Game itself.

My Xbox 360 is fuzzy and has green dots all over the screen

I doubt it's the 360 since everything else is working just fine. The menu works fine, the game works fine. However if you downloaded one of these maps from the marketplace it may be corrupt, and you will have to delete and re-download the map pack.

Xbox 360 Blurry/Fuzzy Screen

The machine is overheating and the graphics chip on the main board is acting up cause of it. Make sure there is no dust or dirt blocking the air vents that would cause the system to heat up more then normal.

If that doesn't do it then maybe think about getting a cooler for the system, here is a website that talks about a few of them. Click here.

If that doesn't help then your mainboard is going bad and would need to be replaced.

I would check it with another set of cables, then try it on another tv. Worst case scenario is that your Graphics Card has started to die and you will end up with a Red Ring of Death on the front of your console soon.
