Hi my problem is at first my xbox 360 went on fine then after 10 mins the screen started going fuzzy so i turned it off then back on was working fine for about half an hour then the screen started going...

If you hear sound but no picture then your graphic chip has got separated from your motherboard, this is not a simple fix. receommend you to look for a local repair shop that can handle game console repairs or send it to

I can hear sound but have no display on my Xbox 360

If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

If you stop the heat getting to the display chips you will be fine!

We turn the tv and xbox on but there is no picture. We can hear the xbox power up and the tv works otherwise, but no visual for games.

is there sound? check the connections in the back of the tv. if you get red lights on the xbox, then it means a cable is loose some where. check the av swith on the av cord connected to the 360.

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.

Xbox 360-hear sound, but no picture

sounds like a problem with the video scaler chip or HANNA. Sometimes the heat from the motherboard can cause it to malfunction. Go to you local video game store that's independently owned and see if they can fix it. good luck

No picture...

I would try some of these troubleshooting steps;

  1. Make sure that the AV cables are 100% secure.
  2. Try an new AV cable.
  3. Try your console on a different TV.
  4. Call xbox customer support at 18004MYXBOX
