Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Attempting to bring up the Xbox Guide causes console to freeze

This is happening at the dashboard screen. Anything that might require the guide such as logging in to my profile, creating a new profile, logging on to live, shutting the console down, or just pressing the guide button is causing the console to freeze. This happens regardless of whether the hard drive is attached and regardless of whether there is a game in the tray.

Yes the freeze ups are caused by overheating and the reason this happens is because the soldering between the 2 main chips has come loose it is very common.

You need to reconnect the soldering which is not as difficult as it sounds, you can either send it in and they will fix it for you and this will take about 4 weeks.

The other way you can do is to use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide which will show you with video how you can do this with household items.

I hope this has helped you and if you liked this solution please rate it so it can help others.

My xbox freezes in the middle of play and makes a funny sound. the screen looks like a checker board


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

How do you fix the screen from freezing up on xbox 360?


Yes the freezing up normally happens before the red lights, the reason that it happens is the CPU and the CPU that deal with the main graphics on your system have overheated and it has caused the motherboard to flex slightly.

When this happens they lose connection and you get a freeze.

Stop the heat and the motherboard from flexing and you will be back up and running, to do this you can use a good guide or you can send it in.

Once the xbox is turned on, the picture will freeze with static lines and the only way to clear it is to turn it off and back on. sometimes happens even in the dashboard area.


Yes this normally happens before you get the 3 red lights error, it means that the motherboard is warping because of the heat, and you will need to get it fixed.

You can send it in and they will fix it for you or if you dont want to wait you should use an Xbox 360 Repair guide that works!
