Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

You guessed it, white lines

I guess i'll join the thousands on here by saying I have the white lines problem, happened to me while playing call of duty 4. The buildings started turning green, the grenades exploded into green smoke, so I reset the console & I haven't had anything but rows of white lines on the screen since. no flashing red lights unless I unplug the componenet cable, bought new component cables but that didn't work. My 360 has been doing this since december 9th 2007. I have no warranty so I need instructions on how to fix this my self, I have already taken the entire system apart, I can handle maintenance myself, just need the know how, where is the source of this problem in the console most common in this situation?

Does this happen in all games? If so, there is definitely line interference. Try swapping input/output cables, try component, HD, optical etc. input lines. Make sure when you test that there are no other things attached to your tv like vcr's and tivo. Just the xbox and the tv. If you exhausted all the i/o line tests. Then the last thing to check is your power supply, power supplies tend to affect video signals too...

Does this happen with all other games? If it's just this game then maybe the game disc is damaged (try cleaning or replacing). If it's with all games then maybe the problem lies in the laser. It could have malfunctioned or simply requires a cleaning.

My Dell XPS 9530 has a white vertical line on the display

Fixing this old of a TV would be a waste of money as unless you have the testing gear and expertise you would be guessing. Just buy new and be happy. You could also join a book club and give up watching TV altogether. LOL

Two consecutive even integers such that the smaller added to three times the larger gives a sum of 22

We'll call x the smaller integer and y the larger. So we know x+3y=22. We can rearrange this to say:
x=22-3y. Now we guess, I'll guess y=6, now we solve and get x=22-3(6)=4. 4 and 6 are two even consecutive integers! So the answer is 4 and 6.

I bought Master mind for kids game, made by pressman. It did not come w/ any instructions. I need rules for the game to play the game.

The two players decide in advance how many games they will play, which must be an even number. One player becomes the codemaker, the other the codebreaker. The codemaker chooses a pattern of four code pegs. Duplicates are allowed, so the player could even choose four code pegs of the same color. The chosen pattern is placed in the four holes covered by the shield, visible to the codemaker but not to the codebreaker.
The codebreaker tries to guess the pattern, in both order and color, within twelve (or ten, or eight) turns. Each guess is made by placing a row of code pegs on the decoding board. Once placed, the codemaker provides feedback by placing from zero to four key pegs in the small holes of the row with the guess. A colored (often black) key peg is placed for each code peg from the guess which is correct in both color and position. A white peg indicates the existence of a correct color peg placed in the wrong position.
If there are duplicate colours in the guess, they cannot all be awarded a key peg unless they correspond to the same number of duplicate colours in the hidden code. For example, if the hidden code is white-white-black-black and the player guesses white-white-white-black, the codemaker will award two colored pegs for the two correct whites, nothing for the third white as there is not a third white in the code, and a colored peg for the black. No indication is given of the fact that the code also includes a second black.
Once feedback is provided, another guess is made; guesses and feedback continue to alternate until either the codebreaker guesses correctly, or twelve (or ten, or eight) incorrect guesses are made.
The codemaker gets one point for each guess a codebreaker makes. An extra point is earned by the codemaker if the codebreaker doesn't guess the pattern exactly in the last guess. (An alternative is to score based on the number of colored key pegs placed.) The winner is the one who has the least points after the agreed-upon number of games are played.

Not a problem. Just won a Genesis G 6.1 home theater system in a charity raffle...can't find it anywhere on line, or a value...?

Is it a Genesis Technologies or Genesis Media labs? The Genesis Media Labs is a scam, the label will say it's worth thousands of dollars and it's really not. It's know as the White Van Scam, never had one or heard one, guessing the probably work but wouldn't know how to put a value on it. Since it was charity maybe it's worth at least what you gave for the tickets?

How much does it cost to repair a burnt valve and piston ring

Your taking about removing the entire engine and transaxle
Then installing a reman engine or rebuilding yours.

I inserted a new movie and I have no sound nor video with a green and blue lights on.

I had this weird problem yesterday knowing I have not done any video setting changes, nor recall a pending software installation. When I start the PS3, green light comes up and then nothing happens. Insert the Game into the slot, blue light blinks and again nothing happens. No video, no sound, and no, it’s not output setting problem as many others have guessed in forums. Try to assign your wireless controller and you’ll know. It doesn’t. If it was on, output and controller assigning I assume should be two separate things.
  1. With the PS3 in Standby mode (Red light on), press and hold the Start button until you hear a single beep, followed by double beeps.
  2. Connect the controller using USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.
  3. Now, the system restore screen (or whatever they call it) will come up like this

  4. You have several options here for restoring the system, some will unfortunately wipe up all your data, others will make you lose the file naming. For me, I tried the option top-bottom and eventually had to do the Restore PS3 System. Luckily, all I had were demos, trailers, and game saves. only game I was really playing now was Prince of Persia. I felt terrible still though, but much better than if I was playing Ninja Gaiden or MGS right? Or let’s say a game Fallout!
Sharing it for others with same misfortune. Guess we’ll need the PS3 included in the backup plan then.
