Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When I turn my 360 on I have sound but either no picture, a black fuzzy screen, or horizontal lines. There are no red lights they are all green but I have to manually open the disc tray. Any solutions out there would be great.
Does it play dvd's but not games?
Playing dvd's fine but freezing on games and other things signifies to me a problem with the lead free solder. The main difference is that the dvd movie playback can run on CPU power alone but when you put a game in the GPU starts working and this is where the problems start.
When the Xbox 360 overheats it causes the lead free solder to crack, the more that crack the worse the machine will get. So eventually i suspect your machine will die completely and show either 3rrod or e74.
To remedy this you need to strip the console down and replace whats called the X-Clamps, at the same time replace the heatsink paste and then you need to re-heat the whole board. We use a special IR over which re-bakes everything and re-seats the solder properly, a lot of people use a heatgun but you have to be very careful.
