Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Odd colour in game and then no graphics next time u switch on

This problem is not game specific as such, I tried COD 5 and COD 4 , same thing happens. First you get an odd colour come up it's almost as though one of the graphics leads is about to fall out(but it's not!). I tried coming out of the game and then at root system level the colours look OK! Switch the box off and then start again smae thing, tried it again NOTHING !! not even the system start up screens this time. However the game can be started and do all the normal things. But you just cant see anything on the screen !!! any ideas, it sound like its a job for the Service engineers, but I would like to know who else has the problem and if anybody has managed to fix it themselves.

This i have seen before and it tells me the machines is displaying the signs of lead free solder failure (85%sure). you could strip the machine down and replacing the x-clamps at the same time do the heatgun fix if you dont have access to an IR oven.
To me it will just get worse and will definately need the x-clamps replacing AND the solder re-seating.


hope that helps in some way

Pc keeps crashing during online gaming


This sounds like either a case of graphical artifacting, or your pc is simply crashing.


Graphical artifacts are things not normally seen on your monitor created by overuse of the graphics card, such things as white pigments and the odd pixel patterns you saw are some signs of this. I've experienced this problem, and have had the speakers make the noise you heard noise upon restarting the pc. To see if this is the cause I would try running an extremely graphically intensive game or program such as a 3D benchmark to test the limits of the graphics card, and if you see the odd pixelation during the testing, then it is most likely that the card is the problem, and you should call its manufacturer for a replacement.


If your pc is simply crashing then either your power supply is not putting out enough power for you graphics card, or the graphics card is not hooked up to the motherboard properly. The first to do to check if this is the case is to run your pc until it crashes and see how hot your pc has gotten, if it is very hot, then your power supply could be overloaded, or you may not have enough airflow in the case. I would suggest opening your pc and looking for anything out of place, and even perhaps getting professional help from a technology store.

My acer z5600 crashes with multicoloured screen when playing games


Ya it sounds like your video Card is dying, though you can check with different RAM and try some normal games which don't need high Graphic. You have PCI Graphic card fitted on it then try removing and playing the game, then this way you can know what is the fault.

Xbox 360 controller turns off at random, yet has new batteries


The battery indicator found when pressing your xbox logo button is temperamental. It might say 2 bars, or 3 or even full battery but this is not a good indicator of a full battery.

The problem IS low batteries(or more specifically - bad batteries) - when the batteries become low the vibration function can cause the controller to disconnect. This is happens because the vibration function uses extra battery power.


So basically... Every time your controller vibrates, it disconnects. This occurs when firing a weapon in most games, grenades in COD, landing heavy tricks in Skate 2, the list goes on, you'll find many complaints from people stating their controller disconnects specifically with these events.


The simple solution, turn off the vibration function when this occurs. It'll never happen to you again ^_^

Thumbs this up when it proves correct for you. I'd recommend a recharge while you play pack. ALWAYS by the official products too. They're much more reliable and aren't prone to this kind of behaviour.

Flashing colours when playing new COD 5.


i can GUARANTEE you it happens with other games..you just havent tried EVERY game out there for the ps3, as this would be impossible. Your RSX video processor is overheating, very common with graphic intensive games such as COD5....how do you fix it? well it needs to be disassembled and reflowed and/or thermal pasted. or call sony and send it back for 150plustax...or we fix that for 65. goodluk
