This can sometimes be the same sort of problem as the dreaded 3rrod, it can be relieved by reflow of the entire board (heatgun over the gpe, cpu and memory, 2-3 inches away for 5 minutes each side). you would also benefit from the x-clamps replaced, heatsink paste replaced and also heat conducting pads on the memory chips. if you need any help doing the above just email me. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

How do u reset your xbox format to pop up on your tv?


If you're using the XBox 360 component/compositve AV cable, try the switch at the base of the cable to switch from HD to SD or vise versa. If that doesn't work, try MS's official reset instructions:

To reset your display settings, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure there's no disc in the disc tray.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console.
  4. Note If you're using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, make sure only one wireless controller is connected to the console, and then turn off and restart the console by using the Guide button on that controller.
  5. As the console starts, press and hold Y while pulling the right trigger on the controller. The display settings are reset to the default settings, and then the console automatically restarts.
    Xbox 360 E or Xbox 360 S console: To reset display setting on these console models, you can also just turn off the console and then hold the power button on the front of the console down for about 10 seconds. (The lights will flash several times.)

Hi melissami133

PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER IF ITS HELPFUL !

FOR XBOX:

With the new Xbox 360 interface, the how-to below is not working anymore! You can do the following to reset your console:
To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
  • 1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  • 2. Turn the console off.
  • 3. Turn the console on.
  • Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.
    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on.
  • 4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.
FOR PS3 :

Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.
