I am having that exact same problem at the moment, I've read on here that it is due to the unit overheating and the solder melting on the graphics card. One of the solutions is to melt the solder by overheating the unit by wrapping it in a towel or heavy blanket to get the unit to overheat for 15-20 minutes. I already had a cooling tower for my unit, but it was clogged with pet hair. After the overheating is complete I plan on placing it in my garage for 30 minutes to cool. I as well play CoD World at war, I wonder if the game is too graphics intense for this system while playing in HD. Anyway either way, this is not covered by Microsoft's warranty, I will try to get my unit the red lights of death if this does not work to get it replaced by microsoft. Good luck!

360 won't play a certain disc


i had the same problem with my xbox 360, but with call of duty world at war.
i had to exchange my xbox 360, for a new one.
and it now works fine, so you should probably stop trying to use the game, or exchange your 360.

Xbox 360 Goes black after a couple seconds after i put in the dis


First of all, does it only happen with COD? If it only happens when you try to play that game, then it is the disc. If it happens with all games, i suggest to call Xbox Support. If you say it ain't the cables, then i would get one of those disc's that clean the drive in the xbox, try it again. If your out of your warranty, you can buy a new xox 360 Drive, i do not know if your up for that task though.

Black pixels on my Tv when I play Xbox 360.


It may be your cables, if you are using HDMI cables a low signal from the cables causes screen "garbage". Try using a different set of cables. I got my HDMI cable off amazon.com for 5$ so they're not that expensive just read the customer reviews before ordering them.

Xbox 360 leaves scraches on my game.


if your 360 is still under warenty with microsoft they will replace your games and your system. give them a call. If its not under warenty you will have to purchase a replacement disk drive as its clear the laser is off kilter. In the mean time i would suggest not putting any other disks into the system until the issue has been resolved. Good luck!

Call of Duty World at War on XBOX multiplyer


Halo will allow you to play with several guests on the non-competition section of their system.

But most ( maybe all ) CoD will only let you use a single account for one player when playing online.

The only option would be to have your friend purchase a 360 and join a party/game with you.

My xbox 360 wont let me play CoD World at War.....


Both of the left lights flashing indicates an overheating error.

Make sure you're using it in a well-ventilated area, not covered by anything, make sure the vents are uncovered etc.

if you're not already, try using the console in the verticle position (this increases the surface area that can disperse the heat).

or if all that fails, one or more internal fans could be dead. in that case, give xbox support a call.
