Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Startup screen goes black.

When I start my Xbox 360 it goes as far as the Xbox logo then the screen goes black. The fans are still going and it sounds like it wants to load the game but I just have a black screen. I recently replaced my optical drive and it worked for a little bit. But I still had to wait untill the Xbox decided it wanted to load up.

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.

If you hear sound but no picture then your graphic chip has got separated from your motherboard, this is not a simple fix. receommend you to look for a local repair shop that can handle game console repairs or send it to xbox.com

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

Xbox 360 halo problems


my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck

Xbox 360 overheats on startup


there could be hardware problems! mine never gave the two lights when it started it but when playing certain games it overheated and thats whats happening.. i got upset and opened mine up[ voids warrenty for three red lights] and added a 3 inch fan with a 12 v converter for its on power. i set it in on the heat sink and the bottom right corner of the xbox..

so i think you should get a powerful 3inch by 3inch fan with its on power supply and set ur xbox so you can point the fan at the bottom of the xbox! this will help! dont open ur xbox just set a powerful fan[ radio shack, walmart, hardware store] and let it cool the bottom of ur xbox!!!!!!!!

Cheapist way

!!items needed!!!

1. 12 v dc brushless fan

1. 12 volt ac power adapter that hooks up to the wall and the fan for a Direct Current!
thats it may cost over 20 and walmart is cheap and a little less quality

but as long as air pushing on the bottom of ur xbox is moving fast[ dont put the fan to close] so heat is transfered ur good

Xbox 360 plays for a few minutes and then the screen goes black with no sound or picture.


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

This will solve the problem.

XBOX 360 FREEZING PROBLEMS


Sounds like you are suffering the dreaded overheating Xbox 360 syndrome.
Do a quick search on Google and you will come up with a lot of pages and info about this problem.
There are methods involving wrapping a towel around the unit etc.
Also keep an eye on your power brick. Make sure it dosn't overheat.

Personally because I live in Australia and it's always hot here, alot of 360 owners have taken them apart and added in fans to help the cooling.
