Dots appear on the touch screen

hi lea, does this dots and lines appears occasionally or it just stays there? because if its permanently there, then you might need to replace the lcd part of the lower screen (not the touch screen part) but if its occasionally, then try to see if it happens when your on the lowest brightness or highest brightness, if it is then you will have to adjust the variable resistor on the motherboard of the DS,let me know if you have to do this.

I lent on my ds and these now black dots on the screen and i turned it off to see if they would go away and now it wont turn back on HELP ME IF MY MUM FINDS OUT SHES GUNNA KILL ME IT WAS BRAND NEW!!!!

Black dots on the screen may be burnt pixels on the screen. First, relax. Second, put the DS on the charger for a while to give it a good charge and then see if it turns on.

What arethe black dots appear when playing a xbox game

These "black dots" you talk abotu could be a variety of things and since you haven't given much detail it's hard for me to say.

Just double check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance so you're certain the problem originates from your Xbox 360.

Hopefully, it's just a problem with your cable, maybe it's not plugged in right or maybe a replacement will fix it.

When I say hopefully, I mean, hopefully it's a cable fault as opposed to an Xbox 360 hardware fault. Variations of black lines or dots, or just general artifacts on screen while using your 360 usually happens prior to a hardware fault usualy concerning the GPU.

I guess it's just a waiting game for you now mate.

Just check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance.

Black screen white dots

This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

Hope this helps.

Screen fills with black lines and dots when playing games

Does it ever get the Red Ring of Death? If not, it sounds like it will soon. I have lost 2 360s that way.
