    Screen would occasionally have a green tint and then would not show when system booted up. Tried different cables but still no video. Audio is fine and controllers still communicate, no vid.

This is similar to the Red Lights Of Death. But instead of your CPU having a bad connection, it's your GPU. There is a 3 year warranty on the 360, so call Microsoft and get it repaired or replaced. If the warranty seal is broken you can take it apart and replace the x-clamp with 4 screws, 8 fiber washers, 8 steel washers and heat sink paste. Contact me for further instructions if doing it yourself.

My Xbox 360 keeps showing a black screen

1. Get 3 towels then switch your Xbox 360 on.
2. Wrap the Xbox 360 in the towels [Note - You must cover the WHOLE Xbox otherwise it won't work].
3. Leave your xbox for 25 mins in the towels.
4. When the 25 mins is over take off the towels of and let your Xbox 360 to cool for 20 minutes, enjoy fixed gaming for the next 4-7 days. Once you get a blank screen repeat this process.

[Why Overheat it?]
When overheating it you attempt to solder the dis-connected wires back to the motherboard.
I recommend getting it fixed instead.

[What does it Fix?]
This fixed the Red Ring of Death, and the Blank Screen of Death

I do not take responsibility for this. This is mainly for those without warranty or money to repair.

The premise is to wrap the towel around the 360 and to let it heat up. This will weaken solder points and hopefully re-join broken connections. The problem with this method is that you have no control over what solder points are weakened and there is no way to prevent further damages caused by the heat. It is better to send a 360 in for repair with the three year warranty that MS put on the 360s, because if you try the towel method and then send it in for repairs, they will know by the solder points being misshapen and it will void your warranty forcing you to pay for the repairs.

Sound But No Picture

This Just happened to me. There seems to be a lot of solder issues with the 360. I bit the bullet and tried the towel trick, where you over heat the 360 for about 20 min. I Let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.
