Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Black screen with white dots moving around everywhere

My Xbox first started out with showing green spots all over the screen and then showing white dots, now it just shows one red ring and it doesnt show anything on the T.V screen, does anyone know how to redring it? I've tried the towel thing and all it does is overheat and then it turns off by itself, i've tried,not exaggerating, about 10 different things that people tell me to do and nothing has worked, im desperate and i need help someone please tell me how to redring it, and i dont want tricks on how to fix it i want to know how to red ring it please.

It is possible to open your Xbox 360 and fix the problem, which isn't recommended, but there are many tutorials, but if it is not 3 red lights then you don't have the Red Ring of Death. If the whole ring around the Xbox 360 is red then this means that either the Audio-Video cable is not connected properly, or the Xbox 360 is not detecting it. You can try cleaning the AV cable or you could try buying a new AV cable. The easiest way to decide on what you should do is go to:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/906652
That is the specific page for your problem and should give you a solution, and if it does not, then you should be able to contact Microsoft, and if it is still under manufacturer's warranty, then they should be able to fix it for free.

    I'm sorry, if I misunderstood your question, which it sounds like I did, you meant one red light? If so, it should be the bottom right light that flashes red, this means that there was a hardware failure, and your best bet of fixing anything is to talk to Microsoft customer support. This may sound unpleasant, but I have used their customer support for the Xbox 360 before and they are very friendly and I was not on hold for more than 30 seconds. The number for Xbox 360 customer support is: 1-800-469-9269 (1-800-4MY-XBOX)
    or to make sure this is your error, you can check this page:

    I hope this clarifies any misunderstanding I may have had, and I hope you figure out your problems! ~Flascher

My Xbox 360 is fuzzy and has green dots all over the screen


I doubt it's the 360 since everything else is working just fine. The menu works fine, the game works fine. However if you downloaded one of these maps from the marketplace it may be corrupt, and you will have to delete and re-download the map pack.

Black screen white dots


This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

Hope this helps.
