My Xbox 360 has no graphics or sound after update

Hello to you all,
This I think is a bit of a wried one after downloading the most recent of updates from xbox live my xbox has stopped showing graphics and sound. There is no ring of death and I know its signing in to xbox live as I have a vista sidebar add-on that shows my gamertag and the last discs i've inserted.
It just won't show graphics or sound, has anyone came across this problem before, all help much respected as I've ask xbox support and even spook to a supervisor only for him to tell me that becauses it's out of warranty, a repair would cost. I replyed with the fact that if I didn't download the update my computer would still be working, his reply was to download the NXE update and insert it into drive but this cannot work as I cannot see the screen to allow it to update.
Can anyone help, Cheers Phil.

Actually under normal circumstances i would tell people that they had the same problem as the dreaded 3rrod and to either send to me or attempt the repair themselves. BUT ive multiple accounts over many forums and ive seen LOTS of people reporting the very same thing, soon as they do the new update they get the 3rrod.
in this case you need to ring Microsoft and tell them they are at fault and there are lots of others with the same problem. if they refuse to help/try to charge you then ask to speak to a supervisor or manager.

there is something in the latest update that is causing the 3rrod and similar problems. dont let them fob you off or break your console.

do some research and make them pay for breaking your console

My xbox 360 keeps teling me i need an update for xbox live i do the update it lasts for a bit and than says files missing need a xbox live update


It is possible that there is no room on your console to download the update. Make sure there is space on your hard drive/memory card to download the update then try again. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Need system update


Connect your Xbox 360 to your router via an ethernet cable and download the update from directly from Xbox Live. Alternatively, you can download the update on your computer and either burn the file to a CD/DVD or drop the file onto a Memory Stick and put that into the Xbox to run the update. Most newer games have the newest update directly on the game disc. Direct link to Microsoft: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx

X-box 360s brand new, cannot get it to download the update


Hello

The easiest option to update the Xbox 360 hard drive is to connect to Xbox Live. The console will automatically prompt the user to install any available updates. Alternatively, users can download the update files to a USB flash drive to transfer to the Xbox 360 hard drive.

Update via Xbox Live

Open the Xbox 360 dashboard menu. This menu automatically appears when the console is turned on. Press the "Xbox" button, followed by the "Y" button to return to the dashboard menu from a game.

Scroll up to the "My Xbox" tab of the dashboard menu.

Select "System Settings" from the "My Xbox" section of the dashboard. Scroll to the right while the "My Xbox" tab is selected to reach the "System Settings" icon.

Select "Network Settings" from the "System Settings" menu.

Select "Test Xbox Live Connection" from the network settings. A prompt will appear to update the Xbox 360 hard drive if your system is not already updated to the latest version.

Select "Yes, update now" to install the latest updates to your Xbox 360 hard drive.


Updating via USB Flash Drive

Copy the update files onto the root directory of your USB flash drive. You can download the Xbox 360 update files by going to download.microsoft.com/download/1/d/8/1d8c09be-278e-41cd-98be-eb9188128227/$systemupdate9199.zip. You must extract the files from the .zip file before placing them on the USB drive. The update files cannot be placed into a folder or the Xbox 360 system will not recognize them.

Remove the flash drive from your computer.

Insert the flash drive into the USB port on the Xbox 360 console.


Turn on the Xbox 360. An update prompt will appear when the system powers up.

Select "Yes, update now" to update the Xbox 360 hard drive.

Startup screen goes black.


I would try having the firmware reloaded or updated. Sounds like a problem there. Try going to xbox.com and downloading the update for playing older xbox games. This also updates the firmware.

Xbox 360 cant play newer xbox 360 games only older xbox 360 games


when the new games came out, the console updates itself when you go to play the game. Look on the back of your console at the numbers. (not serial or part) You should see 2006 or 2007. It is most likely that you have an 2006 which means that your graphics card isnt strong enough to handle the graphics from these games. If you call up microsoft and tell them that the console had the 3 red rings (even though it doesnt) They will take your console, repair it, and update it all for free.
