White Dots on Black BG, but still have audio and operating system

I was playing a game and after I was done playing, mind you not a new game, turned it back on and got moving white dots in a diagonal direction on a black BG. I tried unplugging the AV cord from the system and the TV still the same. Tried new cables still the same. Tried resetting the display settings by hitting the guide button and holding the Y button and R Trigger, still the same. What is causing this problem. I still have the operating system and audio b/c cause I can hear it go through the menus and hitting the A select button audio and can still shutdown the console by holding the guide button and hitting up twice and then the A select button. Video Card problem?

I had this problem with 1 of my 360's, i have 1 in the bedroom that won't read discs and one in living room has same av problem, my warranty ran out on both machines suprise suprise so i wasn't forking out £160 to repair both consoles,

if under warranty send it back as soon as possible, if not i wrapped mine in a towel so it overheats after 10-15 minutes then the system red lights and resets everything, turn off then leave to cool and turn back on, yea i was suprised when it worked to i thought someone was takin the wet when they told me how to fix it, this option will make it work again but i strongly advise if under warranty that you get it sorted by microsoft

Garmin 1100lm locked in press dot game?


Your unit is in calibration mode. There should be a black dot to press on the calibration screen. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen, you may need to press very firmly and use a stylus until it says calibration complete.
This usually occurs when a unit is dropped or left in extreme temperatures or jammed it a glove box or console with things jammed against the screen. It could also occur if you are touching the screen as you start.
Thanks for using FixYa

Black screen white dots


This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

Hope this helps.

Does it ever get the Red Ring of Death? If not, it sounds like it will soon. I have lost 2 360s that way.

Another stange graphic problem


This may be an indication of the graphics processor overheating. When the card overheats it tends to leave artifacts like black dots. Newer games typically put harder stresses on consoles than older titles. This would also explain why the dots aren't showing up in menus, menus don't require as much juice as game play. I would blow out the system with some canned air and try playing the system in a cool, well ventilated area to see if that helps. Sometimes this can be a permanent issue with the graphics processor and you would need to send it in to Microsoft.
