Its on its way to getting e74 error or the dreaded 3 red rings of death (rrod). Microsoft will charge you an arm and a leg to repair it. You can try to do it yourself if you feel confident. I would recommend first trying Team HYBRID's Ultimate X-clamp fix first and if that doesn't fix it right away, then a reflow might be needed. If you still need more assistance you can get more help in the xbox-experts forum

Xbox 360 no sound or picture but with a twist


The towel trick is just that a TRICK. overheating your console
will shorten the life of most of the electrolytic capacitors.
and if it works it will very temporary.

First thing to try
goto gamestop and buy a multi a/v adpter .that will have
many plugs . plug the xbox 360 adapter in and then
plug the S-video into your set and some time you
can get video single from this line even if the main
Red /white/yellow/ line are dead . and since you have
sound from red /white you should be ok.

If the s-video has no output then your going to have
to do what's called an x clamp mod on it or
have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. this is the most
durable repair.

Any questions feel free to ask.

We bought a new fan for our xbox 360 on sunday and yesterday while playing Modern Warfare, the screen went completely black. We tried different tv's, but the screen stays black. We can hear noise like...


possibly unrelated. try testing the connections to the tv and the x-box. if thats solid then try removing the fan unit to see if it is the culprit.

What arethe black dots appear when playing a xbox game


These "black dots" you talk abotu could be a variety of things and since you haven't given much detail it's hard for me to say.

Just double check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance so you're certain the problem originates from your Xbox 360.

Hopefully, it's just a problem with your cable, maybe it's not plugged in right or maybe a replacement will fix it.

When I say hopefully, I mean, hopefully it's a cable fault as opposed to an Xbox 360 hardware fault. Variations of black lines or dots, or just general artifacts on screen while using your 360 usually happens prior to a hardware fault usualy concerning the GPU.

I guess it's just a waiting game for you now mate.

Just check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance.

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.
