Xbox 360 colours went funny then screen went blank. but the sound still works. Any idea what this could be?

Hi, first of all you need to unplug all the leads from the back of the xbox and also from the telly, then refit them making sure they are fitted and pushed in far enough, if after doing this it still dont work then its bad news im afraid.

if it dont work then this means the xbox has over heated and the gpu chip has over heated and the solder connecting it to the circuit board has cracked and caused loss of circuit.

before you have any work done you need to check the date on back of console and if the date is less than 3 years old then this fault is covered by warranty so go to their official website and lodge a repair request what they will do then is send you a refurbished xbox and swap it for yours.

if how ever yours is over 3 years old or its been opened before then the chances are you have no warranty and if this is the case you need to find someone who can reflow the solder for you, or you can have a try yourself but you need to know you could make it worse and beyond repair.

so you need to either find a repair shop or look in the phone book or try yourself, if you are going to do this yourself then your going to need a heat gun with temp settings on it and an xbox 360 repair guide.

if you use google and type in free xbox 360 rrod repair guide, then hit search that will list loads of sites that tell you how to do this.
1 dont ever try the towel trick it will make the problem a lot worse
2 dont use the guides that tell you to put it in the over this will over heat all the circuit board making the problem worse.

to do the repair yourself you will need the following
1 heat gun
2 T8 and T10 star bits to undo the star shaped screws
3 heat sink paste.
4 xbox 360 rrod repair guide.

if you are unsure or dont want to risk doing any more harm then find someone who can do the repair for you, i repair these for about 25 quid so you will need to shop around most people charge upto £40 in the UK so be prepared to pay up to that for the repair.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Xbox freezes but no red lights...still green.when freezes ,cant access any menus,have to turn off xbox then turn on again

Hi, your xbox is over heating and will get the red lights check if you have any warranty left as this is covered for 3 years by microsoft so check the date on the back you dont need a receipt to exchange it just go to xbox official web site and fill your details in

if you have got no warranty left then you have a couple of options, you can carry on playing it until you get the rrod or you can get it repaired now, the best option would be to get it repaired now, its not the kind of job you want to do yourself as getting it wrong can make it a lot worse.

i charge around 25 pound to do the x clamp fix so shop around and see what prices you can get as it needs doing sooner than later, but you need to be aware that even getting the clamps sorted might not solve the problem it all depends on how much its over heated if its to bad then it could mean the cpu or gpu chip is beyond repair and if this is the case then your better off getting another xbox, how ever you wont know this until the repair has been tried.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

I was playing red dead redemption and it froze and wont play any longer so i took the disc out and theres a perfect half moon scratch around the disc, is it a common problem. I have the xbox 360 premium 60...

Hi, yes this is very common im afraid you need to get the dvd driver replaced as whats happening is the lense is not lowering so it stays up and scratches the disk, dont get using it until you get the driver replaced as it will just wreck all your games.

you can get a drive but you will need it programming into your xbox so its not the kind of thing you can do yourself.

i repair these every day and also ps3 and to repair yours it will cost about 40 pound in the UK thats what i charge so you need to shop around and find someone near you who can offer this repair,

if you have not had it long then check your warranty as it is covered for this

Need to know how to install games in Xbox hard drive.

There is no way to install the games to the xbox's hard drive without modding the console first and without the proper technical knowledge theres high chances you can damage the console beyond use or repair. My advice is to either find the closest most reliable repair/modding shop or to purchase a mod kit online. I hope this offers some assistance. Good luck.

I have never played XBox and have just been given an XBox original. I have hired a game from local shop, turned on Xbox put in disc, what do I do now to start to play

to play a game in the original xbox you just put the disc in and close the tray. They load automatically. For more information on how to use your newly obtained xbox original here is the user manual in PDF form you will need a pdf reader to open it such as adobe reader. click here for original xbox user manual. Im wondering since you say you just got a game from a local shop, Make sure it is an original xbox game. If you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. thanks, Midwest-tek

One red ringon xbox360

Hi, there are about 17 error codes that go along with one red light on your 360. It ranges from a bad hard drive to a bad DVD flash chip. The most common problem is the e-74 error code which is a result of a GPU malfunction. This can be repaired by doing an x-clamp replacement on the 360. If your 360 is still under warranty, then I would suggest that you send it back to Microsoft and they will repair it for free. If it isn't then I would recommend that you take it into a repair shop to have it fixed. The benefit to taking it into a shop instead of doing it yourself is the shop will give you some sort of warranty in case it happens again.

If you are under your manufature's warranty through Microsoft you could contact 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269) and they should be able to assist you.

Hi Nicknameyea,

Most repair shops will have the XBOX back to you within 2 weeks or less. It is in their best interest and yours to get it done quickly. I run a repair shop and we succeed at getting Video game consoles repaired and out within 24 hours of the time we recieve them. Also, it is important, if you live in the USA, to use the United States Post office for Delivery. FedEx, UPS, DHL take twice as long or longer when moving ground shipments. USPS priority mail will cross USA in 2 days. So if yoiu used my shop and used USPS priority mail, and we will too, you looking at the Xbox being away for only 1 week.

Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, then Click on "Video Game Consoles" . Pick a well rated Video Game console repair shop that can turn it around fast for you at a price you can handle.
