Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

During game play my video went to garbage and RROD

During game play my video went to garbage and my system started making an increasingly loud noise. I turned it off and received the red ring of death. I panicked. I unplugged everything and let my system sit for 30 minutes. I plugged everything back in and rrod was gone but I then had sound but no video. I proceeded to wipe the metal part of AV cables and reinsert them and the same issue was present. I then proceeded to try my system on two other TV’s with the same outcome. I've heard from friends this is a known issue with xbox360's. Any help would be grateful. I'm going through withdrawals.

If your 360 is still in warranty try to send it back to microsoft and ask for recall, cause it´s a hard problem to fix..RROD is terrible to fix, here in Brazil we have the same problem even worst sometimes...to fix your 360 you will need to reflow the bga solder points under the 360 GPU processor.. it is located under the dvd drive...and under the gpu heatsink..after reflowing your gpu..you will need to apply a thermal paste called artic silver...try to change the gpu heatsink with another better one...and install a internal coolermod...Any doubts call me...search for thermalright TR-360 the solution for XBOX !!! Good Luck !!!

Sound choppy


HI, how does it game?

Can you play games on the system for more than "10 min" without issue? I ask, because gaming should cause more issues with overheating than watching Netflix.

Disc getting scratched


I've heard that when you put discs in the 360 and have the machine perpendicular to the ground, scratches sometimes occur. From my own personal experience, physically moving the 360 while playing a disc can sometimes cause scratches. I'd call 1-800-4-MYXBOX and ask them about it. Try their tech support and hopefully any fixes fall within your warranty or are easier than that. I'm sure that they'd be glad to help. Good luck!

The drive is making a loud noise


I assume you mean the DVD drive. This is usually the cause of ether the disk being unbalanced in the tray, which can lead to damage to the disc as well as a permanent scratch on the DVD lazer itself. Or it could be that just something got caught in the DVD drive when you went to put a disc in. Ether can be fixed by your local gaming store most probably, or look for someone who is well experinced in fixing xbox 360 problems such as RROD or E74 errors. They generally would know how to fix DVD drives as well.

While playing the game, it will suddenly make a loud sound the freeze up. What can i do to do fix this?


I have the exact same problem when I play Lego Batman on my Wii. Unfortunately, since the Wii version is the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it has lots of data that the Wii console can't handle sometimes, thus making that loud noise and freezing up. You can't fix it, but the best solution would be to:
1) Unplug the Wii, then plug it back in.
2) Start up the game and try that same part again. It should work. If it doesn't, just keep trying.
*Note: When you plug it back in and start the game again, don't do any other levels before the level that keeps freezing up and making that loud noise. I hope this helps.

XBOX buzzes loudly then freezes. Screen turns Green.


If you under warranty send it back NOW before it does something that MS
will not cover

if you broke the seal than get a proper x clamp mod
it will fix 99% of most problems . I know ,that's what i have
been doing for the last 2 years.

Games Are Freezing


this has happened to me...
i was first getting red ring of death
then i fixed it and never got RROD again
but it started freezing during gameplay, then at dashboard and then at the beginning until it couldnt start at all...
this can be cause by overheating GPU and CPU causing them to bend and lose connection...just like RROD, or it can possibly be that component that reads and plays games, is screwed up...
