Yes its an x clamp mod, just a tip
the dead video x clamp mod requires
a little more heat than the the C.P.U
can put out to self correct ,so make
sure the person who does the mod
has done this type (non video x mod before)

How to fix my xbox 360 from 2 red lights

Towel Trick This part is more for reference. I don’t recommend doing this method.
I read about the towel trick before I found out about the X-Clamp replacement, so thought I would give it a try. At the time, it was either this or the heat gun trick, which seemed a bit more risky, so I went with the towel method.
This method basically involves wrapping your xbox 360 up in a towel to prevent any airflow from getting in, or out, of the xbox 360. This in turn forces the xbox to get really hot. You must leave the video plug attached, so that the xbox does not auto shut off. I left it running for about 15 minutes. It got pretty warm...
I’m not sure on the specifics, but I believe this just allows the solder on the cpu/gpu/ram to reflow, and fix the bad connections. As the x-clamp is still in use, this method generally will fail, and it did for me after about 2 days (and I wasn’t using it heavily).

When i turn on the xbox 360 one light on right side goes on

This is called the ring of death. It happens to alot of x360. The console got to hot. One thing you can do is the towel trick. Wrap the 360 in a towel so it is not exposed at all. Make sure it is turned on. Leave it on for 30 minutes. This sometimes will repair the problem. If this does not work the first time try it again. If this does not work there is another fix, but it is very involved. Let try the towel trick first.

No screen on the Xbox 360

right do the towel trick it works. wrap the 360 in 2 towels and leave it on for 15 mins. then go bk to your xbox un wrap it. put it near a window if possible ( i did and its working fine) due to it being near a window you will get no overheating and its well ventilated.

If it still under warranty, contact Microsoft for a replacement.
There is no permanent fix for the Red Ring of Death.

XBOX 360 no picture

try diffrent connectors composite instead of componant or vis versa. the wireless for the controls doesnt work on mine. I havent been able to find alot of replacement parts for the 360. I think you will end up having to send it in or by a used Core system for $200 from ebgames or ebay.. You could also try holding down the power button for 10 seconds. i heard that resets it as well.

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.

No screen or picture but theres sound

You may have a bad video cable, remove it and re-attach it. Make sure no pins are bent. Try cleaning the contacts.

If you have another cable try it.

Possible bad video output IC

Check here if that did not fix it.
