I've had the Xbox360 since it released in 2005, I've had the original, Pro and the Slim edition, but this have never happened.
Except! If there is a error, like if it can't read the disc or something. It could be, in worst case, that the laser reader (which reads the discs) is defect, or it might be dust on it.

You can try to open the disc tray and blow downwards into the xbox, because if there is dust or something like that on it, that might be what's stopping you from playing your games.

It may aswell be some glitch, so you can try to remove all cables (TV-connection, ethernet cable, power connection) and remove harddrive (DO NOT remove harddrive if it is the Xbox 360 Slim, that might corrupt files on the harddrive)).

If there is a error code, please post it here, and I will see what I can do :)

SOURCE: i need help xbox 360 black screen

OK, I think I can slove your problem.

There is a slide setting thing on your av cord that gives you the option of using TV or HDTV (look near the end of the cord that slides into the XBOX 360), You will see two choices for settings on the cord "TV" or "HDTV".
Just make sure that you have it on the correct setting. I had the smae problem. My XBOX 360 is not hooked up to HDTV, so for me it should stay on TV. But somehow when I took out the cord I accidently slide it to HDTV.

I simply slide it back to the "TV" Setting and in about 30 seconds it worked perfectly.

I hope this helps you.

Xbox 360 troubleshooting


You will have to supply more details if you want help.
- What is the MFR DATE of the 360 (On the barcode sticker)?
- Is the 360 modified, if so what kind of modification?
- When the console goes to the black screen, does it freeze or can you return to the dashboard when pressing the "X-BOX" button on the controller?
Does it do this with all games or only a few?

try unplugging the xbox then hit the power button and leave it unplugged all night and then try it. If that don't help then your hard drive may be going bad or your dashboard files are screwed up. You can email me at c_a_messmer@hotmail.com if you have any questions.
