It needs to be fixed, the right way.

If it's still under warranty, microsoft.

If not most shops and dudes on craigslist do it for $40.

Or you can go diy for about $10-15

I have a way of fixing black dot/screen issues, may be damaging to xbox. Simply do the towel trick, but keep it heating for a LOT longer, until you get the 2 red lights. This means that xbox has totally...


Yep, and will work once or twice..

BUT you are intentionally overheating the CPU and more importantly, the GPU..

Its ironic you say .." 9/10 times has worked.." And what happend the tenth time, RROD?

Thats what you are advocating by intentionally overheating

3 red lights flashingand xbox doesn't turn on


The Xbox console is overheated.
  1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.
  2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating.
  3. If the lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.
To try to prevent this problem, follow these precautions:
  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.

Sound and no picture xbox 360 no flashing red lights


Your a/v cable has a switch where it plugs into your xbox, it's probably set to HD and you have it hooked to a non HD T.V. just flip the switch

Xbox 360 no video but have audio after playing madden


Something to try is just leave the xbox on for an hour, turn off let cool for 5 min. If that doesn't work, it's a difficult solution to recommend but the towel trick' does work, let it over heat the 360 for about 20 min, then let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.

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.

use the towell trick! Wrap the 360 in 2 towells turn on and leave running for 15 minutes. It gets very hot but after the 15 minutes turn off the console and power it back on again and it should work. Dont know if this is a permanent fix but my 360 hasnt broken again so far. Dont ask me how but it works, google it if you like. It also cures the 3 red lights problem.
