Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox 360 Multiple Failiures.

Microsoft A.K.A 'MICROFAIL' created a **** product which I stupidly decided to buy over the PS3....yeah the 360. There have been multiple problems with my XBOX 360 including a 'general hardware failiure', a 'hard drive failiure' (resulting in having to replace it with another for GBP 60.00, also losing all previousley saved data on my old hard drive) and now I think my GPU has gone (No Image, only sound). In effect, my problem is Microsoft - after buying enough games (for which I could've spent the money on a PS3) that I this choice: A) - Pay MORE money to get it fixed B) - Scrap the Xbox altogether wasting hundreds of pounds in the process. Microsoft is one problem you can't fix.

I have an xbox 360, but i have a ps3 connect to the tv via hdmi. i swapped the hdmi cable to the xbox and powered on. i had all the cables in the correct position, the correct av selected on the tv, but...

Have you tried disconnecting the HDMI cable from both the TV and the console and then trying to reconnect?

Y+RT does not reset controllers for the Xbox 360, so not sure what you are attempting there?

What type of TV do you have? It appears the issue is with either your cable or the TV seeing that you are having the same issue with both your PS3 and Xbox 360.

I still think your first step should be to disconnect all cables from both ends and reconnect. (with poer off of all sytems of course) If this doesn't solve your issue then submit further information on your setup such as TV make and model and I can research other possibilities.

Cant decide which one to buy

Hi, Xbox 360 is almost like ps3, though they have different features, but their mechanism inside are the same.

You can differentiate them by the body beauty, and display.

Think about it and go for one.
For me i would prefer xbox cause of the shape and size.

Take care.

I would justsay, "Screw Microsoft" They purpously screw up peoples Xbox's so you have to buy more of their products. But if you really want this fixed just send in the Xbox, and wait a week and you'll have it fixed.

Why does my stupid xbox 360 constantly brake?

You might want to buy a cooling fan that clips on the back or is like a base that the 360 sets in. My son has one and the unit keeps the 360 cool all night long.
