Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I was happily playing along when the screen flickered and lost picture quality.
I switched the cosole off and back on again but no image came back. there was no sound either. after a minute of dumbfounded staring the tv auto shutdown timer began. so nothing was getting through to the TV.
I checked to make sure everything was plugged in correctly, still no image.
No red rings what so ever, the console looked like it was starting up correctly.
I changed the component cables from HD to TV and plugged this into the normal vide and also tried this withthe scart plug. no joys.
Went to the store and replaced my component cables, tried all as above. Still no joy.
Took xbox to store to try on their TV, also no joy.
Call to Microsoft, advises warranty run out and to send in but will cost at least £70. Might as well buy a new Arcade pack and just plug in my harddrive. Gives me a new warranty and the HDMI input.
I also noticed that when i changed the component cable from HD to TV and vice versa, the console rebooted itself like normal so I am completely confused as to where the problem lies?!
thanks for your help.
We can fix this problem, its more than likely a fault which is very similar to the dreaded 3rrod (even though no red rings are present).
I have seen this error before and we can fix this by re-seating all the solder and replacing the x-clamp. we also do a couple of other fixes at the same time to try to stop this happening in future. our website is www.fixmyconsole.co.uk if you need help and i will knock £5 off any repair for all fixya customers.
