Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

I play my xbox fine, but then the colors get distorted/splotchy

I can play my xbox fine for about 20 minutes but then the screen gets splotchy and the colors are all messed up. The gameplay keeps going and I don't get lag or anything, but I just can't see too well. I have a high powered fan running behind it but it doesn't seem to help.. Any solutions?

    Note that the game doesn't make a difference and it still happens at the dashboard.

Graphical Failure after 30 minutes


Nothing really you could do unless your good with a solder ....sounds like when if runs games it starts to over heat and the connection on the video output internally is getting loose. The system doesnt run as hard when it plays a dvd but once a game goes in it needs alot more to keep playing it ...i would take it to a computer repair shop or contact xbox them self i thing they extended there warranty's... hope this helped you out a little.

Xbox 360 issue.


Hello Snarker it sounds like you have a bad AV cable, try replacing it with a different one( It will costs $5-10). If there is still a problem try removing your HDD ( the hard drive which is removed from the top of your xbox 360). If neither of those seem to fix your screen's issue, you may have an internal device that has overheated or come loose, I would recommend try leaving your xbox on and see if red rings appear on your console Like this(they might be in a different idea I am just letting you know where to look) 9ca118f.jpg. If they do you can send your xbox back to Microsoft wait 2-4 weeks and get it back for free.

I hope that helped and if you need anymore assistance please let me know.

Screen turns weird colors when trying to play a video


You can press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, instead of removing the battery.

As for the other issue, there is not any RAM on the MP3 player to buffer the video, so its best to keep the video in clips around 10 minutes.




Best of Luck.
