Re: xbox

Do you have it hooked up straight to your tv or is it hooked into a System Selector? Your cables might be going bad, or what ever you have cables plugged into is going bad.

My Xbox 360 shows a grey screen, the sound works fine and i do have picture

Hey dude, I had this problem and found a solution on another website. Basically, I had either changed the display settings on my tv, or it had done it by itself or my new ps3 had done it or whatever, but to fix it I went into the TV menu, went to display options, on my tv it has something entitled 'Colour system' I changed that to PAL-60 and I now have colour, just to give you an idea of whether you have the same problem, try setting your x-box display to pal-50 and see if that shows colour (if it's easier to do), if it does then try then solution above! Hope it helps!

Plug in the wii system and everything comes in black and white

Try plugging it into another scart socket, this sometimes happens when a tv does not support 60hz. the result is a screen that has no colour. You could try just plugging it onto the seperate av inputs. Most tv's these days have one scart that will work ok and in colour.

XB360 Screen colour changes and then disappears

Could possible be your television.

Or maybe your Xbox is overheating.

Try placing your Xbox in a cool spot, direct a fan at it, etc.

Or try getting a new TV or Xbox.

Problem with xbox 360

With my xbox 360 as for instance last night i downloaded a new map for halo 3 and shortly there after i started to have issues of freezing the game would stop and lag and i would have a checkered screen come up where ever there was white.

If you have downloaded anything to your hard drive delete it it is probably a corrupted file. IE music game profiles pictures. anything that you have recently downloaded. if that doesnt work i would hope that its under warranty and microsoft can bite the bullet.
