Re: xbox 360

You ring microsoft, say you have 3 red lights (which you obviously dont have) and they take some details and you send it off and they send you a new one. Same thing happened to me, and thats what i'm doing.

Our xbox 360 video has a black screen with small white dots moving downward. Rebooting doesn't work. We still get audio.

this is a gpu issue, you need to contact microsoft support, the xbox 360 has a lot of problems as it is a flawed design.

Black screen with white dots moving around everywhere

It is possible to open your Xbox 360 and fix the problem, which isn't recommended, but there are many tutorials, but if it is not 3 red lights then you don't have the Red Ring of Death. If the whole ring around the Xbox 360 is red then this means that either the Audio-Video cable is not connected properly, or the Xbox 360 is not detecting it. You can try cleaning the AV cable or you could try buying a new AV cable. The easiest way to decide on what you should do is go to:
That is the specific page for your problem and should give you a solution, and if it does not, then you should be able to contact Microsoft, and if it is still under manufacturer's warranty, then they should be able to fix it for free.
I hope I helped! ~Flascher

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.

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.

Black dots during gameplay only on 360

I had this problem with my very first Xbox 360. It started showing little white dots instead of black though. I just dealt with it for a while, and it finally got to the point where it would fill up the screen fully, to where I could only see my gun in Halo 3 and that was about it. I was forced to call Microsoft and have them fix it.
