Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Today my 360 had a strange problem, there was a scratchy noise from the t.v. and the graphics did some kinda wierd pixelation and the game froze with the screen froze and no sound. The scratchy noise was like nails on a chalk board, the t.v. is fine, i checked it with my dvd player and the normal xbox with no problems, I know its the console. I cleaned the machine with a disc cleaner and it did it again. It will play for roughly five to ten minutes before this happens, its a 360 elite and its updated, no flashing lights appear. It makes me think a lens problem...any ideas??

I take it you have tried another game....and as far as the tv goes it may only b that input i work for a cable company and see this quiet often so try plugging the xbox into another input if that doesnt work you may have a bad disk drive or a bad hard drive....like i tell everyone else if you have a friend that lives close buy take it there and hook it up use there hard drive and cables that way you know for sure it isnt the system

Graphics go from normal to pixelated


Sounds like the GPU is overheating you can actually stop the heat yourself or you can send it in and Microsoft will fix it for you.

Some games do more noise then others?


Not really but some games like g.o.w demand more from the graphics processor i'd figure you should stop playing it because it might be damaging your 360

Sound no picture on the xbox 360


Thats very strange, white pixels also called artifacts are due to the fact the GPU can't handle the graphics, but in the case of the xbox, that could be that GPU is overheating, causing the problems of the flickering white pixels all over the picture.
