Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Lets get the picture problem solved once and for all

I have read through this tutorial many times tring to find answers to my problem. 

The 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?

    When i put in a game disc on my XBOX 360, I get sound but horizontal lines across the screen and no picture. Even without a game I get the same result. I have tried cleaning the unit, rebooting, etc, with no luck. Suggestions?

    my problem is similar but i can still play the game but for example, when i'm playing many parts throughout the level turn green and red and it becomes distorted. I switched the av cable and it did not make a difference. have u heard of this problem before?

    I have the same problem. I was playing Gears of War online and suddenly the screen went green. I was doing so well so I waited till the match was over and then I rebooted it. The dashboard had the same green picture problem aswell, so I knew it wasn't the game. I turned it off again and pulled put the power plugs. About an hour later I came back and started it up. Absolutely no incoming videosignals at all, but I could hear the sound normally when browsing through the dashboard. No red rings here either. I'm going to try to use the HDMI port and see if that will fix my video problem.

The heater want come on unless you bump the side of it and then it want stay on long

Thank you for posting your question here on

Check the power output of the thermocouple. Often times as they weaken the power output drops well below the 750mV they should develope and will not be high enough to pop open the vgas valve unless you help it with the 'bump'. Even then it struggles with holding the valve open and eventually lets it close.

Thermocouples wear out over time and are a common part to replace every several years. You should be able to remove the old one and take it to any local appliance parts store for a replacement.
