you ring microsoft, say you have 3 red lights (which you obviously dont have) and they take some details and you send it off and they send you a new one. Same thing happened to me, and thats what i'm doing.

SOURCE: xbox 360 white dots on screen

Unfortunately the "Black Screen, White Dots" Error is caused by a hardware failure (Some say the "towel trick" works, others have used an x-clamp fix, regardless the box is about to die if you dont do something..). If your like me, and you dont want to completely dismantle your xbox, but also dont want to spend $140 for a "fix" from microsoft, you'll need to bite the bullet and replace the unit.

When I contacted Microsoft about my error because it was out of warranty they asked for $140 to repair the unit for this *specific* error (meaning if another error presents itself it will be an additional $140).

The Xbox 360 "Arcade" Version is down to roughly $200. Instead of shipping my unit to India to have it repaired and shipped back now with the possibility of other errors popping up (sand in the disk tray?), I opted to go buy the Arcade version as Microsoft has extended its factory warranty to 3 years from purchase date.

Considering it is 2009 and the next generation of gaming units are coming on the market somewhere between 2011 and 2012, the new warranty will cover you from any other issues and you wont have to worry about shelling out tons of cash to keep repairing a rushed out of production unit (it seems anyone with a build date prior to 2006 have a slew of issues).

For what its worth, I purchased the Arcade version this month which also comes with 5 free games, an additional controller, on board memory, new cables, a quieter power "brick" (which visually seems to have more cooling ducts, as well as it being lighter), and quieter fans for the box itself. The production date was roughly 2 months ago so the warranty coverage cant be disputed.

My Xbox 360 shows a grey screen, the sound works fine and i do have picture


Hey dude, I had this problem and found a solution on another website. Basically, I had either changed the display settings on my tv, or it had done it by itself or my new ps3 had done it or whatever, but to fix it I went into the TV menu, went to display options, on my tv it has something entitled 'Colour system' I changed that to PAL-60 and I now have colour, just to give you an idea of whether you have the same problem, try setting your x-box display to pal-50 and see if that shows colour (if it's easier to do), if it does then try then solution above! Hope it helps!

My xbox 360 is showing in black an white regardless of the wire i use


Most likely it is your tv that is showing in black and white. Teste the inputs on the tv and try changing the xbox to a different input setting...e.g. coax, rca, component, etc. Please rate this solution for me.

My Xbox elite is just over a year old. I have no red rings. Problem is that all games played on the box are now in black & white. There is no colour on my tv screen. There is nothing wrong with the...


Check and recheck and triple check the av/hd cables. If you want to help isolate, try hooking up your xbox 360 to another tv and doesn't matter if it is hdtv or standard to test out. That method will give your answer quick to help isolate the problem. If you have hdtv make sure your adapter has the switch set for hdtv and not standard and then go in the xbox 360 dashboard system settings and see if it shows up for display. Good luck!!!

Please rate and comment!!!

My xbox 360 shows only black and white on the tv. and i blinks in and out somtimes in colr and black and white what do i do?


This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 or even no sound but graphics or black and white problems just like you are reporting.

Firstly get a spare av cable from someone else, try this, if that does the same then try a different scart
input on the tv. if all this fails you need to fix your machine as it WILL get worse

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you, there are guides available on the
internet. Im in the middle of producing one right now that i will make available free of charge for all fixya
members.
