Re: XBOX 360 picture breaks up

Does it happen with every game or just some of them? Could be a issue with the graphics card in the XBox 360.

My xbox 360 WONT read ANY of my games, and may be breaking games

This means the laser in the dvd drive has become mis-aligned, the laser will need replacing because if its breaking games the laser its self may be damaged. When one of these comes in for repair I will change the whole drive,its a lot less hassle, there are plenty of how to vids on youtube.
Hope this helps.

Have got no picture on my tv xbox 360 is loading

you probably have a broken video or hdmi cable. somtimes the cables can even break at the connections or under the plastic coating, making the video going from your xbox to your tv not work.

I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games

Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

Game freezes and dots appear on screen

I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

Picture breaking up

Please try the following:

I think I remember people saying they had that problem, and it was caused by an update to the game. This method should not delete any save games, key word SHOULD NOT.

Good luck, guys!

Well it's still under warrenty if it's from 2-9-07 and you did not break the microsoft seal! I would send it back. If you did break the seal then you can do the rubberband trick (just google it). These are signs that your xbox is on its last leg and you will soon see "3rod" 3 RINGS OF DEATH flashing on your box!
