Hey,my madcatz headset for xbox 360 won't let me talk,iv had it for a month and it was working fine until last week. Now here's the thing I can only hear people talk but I can't talk to them with my mic...

Are you muted? Check to make sure the mute button is not turned on. Also, check that the wire is firmly connected, as you might get, but not send sound. Check your settings in the dashboard as well in console settings, as it might be muted through there.

Power went out i tryed to turn the xbox360 back on it didnt work

Take the Hard drive off, unplug the power wire from the wall, and plug it in to a different outlet, make sure the RCA (red,white,yellow)cables are still connected from Xbox to TV(or this will give red lights when turned on) and with that done, turn the unit on. Are the lights gone?

I think the video cable for my xbox is messed up. Why does it keep showing up these little circle things? Whenever I turn on my xbox it doesn't come up anything but a black screen with little circles...

NOT HD: Make sure red goes to red, white on white, and yellow on yellow, also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says TV not HD.

HD TV: Make sure red on red, white on white, yellow on yellow, blue on blue, green on green, etc. Also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says HD not TC

Everytime i turn my xbox, 3 red lights come up on the xbox ring, no video, no sound just the lights i was wondering if u know what to do

Yeah, well these is called "The Ring Of Death", which is pretty stupid, keeping in mind it isn't really a ring.
Anyways, out a towel over xbox 360 and leave it for 30 mins, then turn console off, then on

Xbox 360 with sound but no image

Make sure your av wires are properly connected, it may be faulty video wiring, if not than your 360 is more than likely defected.

Console with 3 red flashing lights

iv noticed that my xbox started flashing red and froze so i turned it off immeditly and felt the connections in the back were really hot and my xbox was really hot so iv moved it to an area where it could get good ventilation and keeps cool. havent had any more problems turning red it blows out alot of hot air out the back it needs to breath.

3 flashing red light on console

uh well u got the three red lights of death it sounds like... and i also had those. while im no expert on this stuff, iv seen that u can put ur 360 sideways on a table, wrap it in towels(and i mean like 2 towels, wrap it up completely) and turn it on and leave it on for about 10-15 mins. just make sure a fire doesnt start in those 10-15 mins(believe me you dont want to call the fire company and tell them u started a fire wrapping ur game console in towels), ok then after u done waitin turn it off, unwrap it, and let it sit until it is cool, and try turning it on. it might work, its supposed to work because those three red lights mean that theres a malfunction in the 360 itself, such as wires or sumthin, and extreme heat may melt the wires and fix the problem, how i dont know but theres so many stories of ppl who have pulled it off
