Re: my 360 has a problem

Try it on a different TV and if the problem continues, take it back to the store and tell them its broken or try and find a microsoft repair center

This is about my xbox 360 when i turn it on with the hard drive in it goes to a black screen and says system error in several different languages and a red light come on on the counsel and when i take out...

E68 error? If so, turn off system, take off hard drive, put hard drive back on (good and tight) and turn system back on. Repeat a few times, sometimes it takes me 3 or 4 tries.

Black screen on Xbox 360

Its a similar fault to the 3rrod m8, even though you dont have the 3 red lights it is the very same problem. you need to strip down the 360 and go over the mainboard with a heatgun 2-3 inches away from the board in a circular motion. this re-seats the solder and will fix any faulty connections which may be causing this error.
also what you have described seems to be the memory whats the problem, make sure you spend more time with the heatgun over the memory chips.
you can also buy something called a team xecuter 3rrod repair kit which is basically heatsinks for the memory chips - i would very strongly recommend you buy these they are very good. and with your fault being more than likely memory problems then this would help you a lot.

Black screen with white bots on screen.(Xbox 360)

It's probably just the red ring, you can fix that with almost ALL 3 red ring fixes.

Cause there both CAUSED by the motherboard shifting.

Google PENNY TRICK, it doenst always work UNTIL the box is completely screwed back in.

Xclamp trick. Google taht too, it costs money for the kit, but it works like everytime and there are TONS of tutorials online for it.

Can u Fix It

Yes, it is fixable. The way to fix it is to do the X-Clamp Fix on the mainboard first. Then right after, if it still doesn't work, you should do the Heatgun fix afterwards. The Heatgun fix is where you heat up the mainboard to fix broken solder-joints. You should use a circular motion and not keep heating up the same area for too long, or else it'll damage the mainboard even further. Good luck.

My xbox 360 is showing green

no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.

Screen blank

use the towell trick! Wrap the 360 in 2 towells turn on and leave running for 15 minutes. It gets very hot but after the 15 minutes turn off the console and power it back on again and it should work. Dont know if this is a permanent fix but my 360 hasnt broken again so far. Dont ask me how but it works, google it if you like. It also cures the 3 red lights problem.
