Your graphics processor IC chip needs its solder joints reflowing, and the heatsink re securing.

This will solve the problem.

It sounds like your TV is overheating, or some component is failing after a certain amount of time. try plugging your xbox into another TV and playing it for a while to see if this happens again. If it works on the other TV then it is definitely your TV.

Startup screen goes black.


I would try having the firmware reloaded or updated. Sounds like a problem there. Try going to xbox.com and downloading the update for playing older xbox games. This also updates the firmware.

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.
