That means that its overheating! Microsoft has offered an extended warenty on these types of situations, call them and they should service the issue for you. in the mean time, try removing anything from the sides of the 360 and make sure that it has lots of room to breath. also take a cloth and wipe off all the dust from the unit, as that can help quite a bit.

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.

I put in an older game into console (Civilization Revolution)that hadn't been played in awhile. I just recently signed up for Xbox Live and this game had not been loaded since then. A window came up and...


Sounds like the update did not install properly. You will have to go back and try to run it again.
xboxscene forums has the answer, unfortunately I can't open the page right now. look up "bad update freezing" or "system freezing after update".

Sorry I don't have the link.

Xbox 360 makes televison screen fuzzy and difficlt to see


Firstly check the system configuration blade on your Xbox 360 startup screen and check your display settings, if you've got an Xbox Elite/New Premium and have HDMI cable then it should be set as Intermediate/1080i/p settings, if you have the component cables then it should all be set as default.

If that isn't the problem and your games are still loading up with a fuzzy screen then there is either something wrong with the cables in your Xbox or your TV can't handle the graphics that the Xbox is producing and you will have to go into display settings and try setting them as either lower settings or higher settings depending on the TV you have.

It will help if you can provide details to me on your TV too, I'm not as good with TV's as I am Videogame Consoles/PC's but it will help me if I want to solve your queries further.

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.

Color distoration, then the game froze and now video wont work


It could be as simple as the video cables. Get another set of cables and try it. You can get them pretty cheap on auction sites. IF that dont work then I would say your headed for the 3 red lights or no video problem. If thats the case then check with ms and see if your still under warranty. If not we can help. We are registered repair service on this site. thanks
