If its not your scart or the tv then its a similar problem to the 3rrod. its sounding like the memory chips are getting too hot and maybe that a solde rpoint has cracked or dry jointed.

the best way to fix this is to reflow the whole mainboard, replace the x-clamps, replace the heatsink paste with arctic silver 5 and add some heat conducting pads to the memory chips (with a little bit of heatsink paste to keep them in place). email me if you need any further help

Hi my problem is at first my xbox 360 went on fine then after 10 mins the screen started going fuzzy so i turned it off then back on was working fine for about half an hour then the screen started going...


If you hear sound but no picture then your graphic chip has got separated from your motherboard, this is not a simple fix. receommend you to look for a local repair shop that can handle game console repairs or send it to xbox.com

Thanks

After about 10 mins the picture on my xbox goes blurred????


If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

My xbox has no picture or sound, its not the cables.


Alot of people have had success with the towel trick , If its out of guarentee id reccomend doing this. Some people wouldnt but hey what have you got to lose! :)

Any red rings?

If your unsure what the towel trick is check you-tube

Basically you take out the hard drive wrap your xbox in 2-3 towels make sure it stays on for about 20 mins unwrap, leave for 10-15 to cool should work.

Graphics glitch after 10 mins playing


This could be from you GPU starting to overheat. When they get too hot the start running "dots" across the screen and then you get all kinds of pretty colors in the corners of your screen. Eventually you will lose your video altogether. The way to fix that is the same way you fix the RROD by doing the x-clamp replacement. I have done several of these and it fixed the problem and I haven't had any of them come back yet.

Xbox 360 halo problems


my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck

Problems with screen


problam can be with cable, screen, or xbox. try replacing cable first, it is the cheapest and therefore can save you alot of pain. if another cable doesnt solve it, try hooking xbox with another screem (TV or something), if it works, its a screen problem - check for overheating. if it doesnt, you got yourself a messed xbox im afraid.
