Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I have read through this tutorial many times tring to find answers to my problem.
I have an HDTV Sony LCD television. I had my AV cable switch on HDTV and the cables connected to HDTV ports.
I bought my XBox 360 about a year ago and just last week while I was playing a game the screen turned green. So naturally I shut the XBox 360 off and then turned it back on. To my amazement, I heard sound but there was no longer a picture. So, I tried it again with no avail. Then I decided to switch games. Nothing. Then I decided to switch to another HDTV cable port on the same television. No picture, just sound. Next, I decided to try and use non HDTV ports and switched the AV cables to TV. Still, no picture.
So, I then decided to take it upstairs to my television in the bedroom. Still no good. So, I forked out the $50 for new AV cables. Got home today with the new cables and I still gathered the same results. No picture, just sound. My power button was still green and there was no red rings anywhere. So the rings of death were not the problem.
What could this be? Something has to be wrong internally and I do not want to spend even more money to ship it off for repairs. Is it at all possible for me to fix this on my own? If so, how?
Just for you to know, i called microsoft, and they confirmed it was ahardware problem, and were surpised by how i described it that i hadn't had the three red lights.
as i was out of warrenty there was a charge of £85 to fix the box, which i managed to bargin down to £60.
now just got to wait for UPS
sorry its not helpful, but at least you can see the process for me

This is the 2nd most common problem
with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be
replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it
yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a
technician who has experience. There are many things that can go
If you do, you must disassemble your
drive and take out the laser to see exactly which laser you will need
If this doesn't solve your problem, then re-post.
Remember: If you are trying to troubleshoot a problem, you must eliminate all surrounding factors.
Change the laser 1st.
