We own 2 Sony TVs. FD Trinitron Wega KV-27FV310 and LCD Bravia KDL 40S4100. Both have now lost 1/2 a screen. Top 1/2 on the Wega and left 1/2 on the Bravia. Our son plays XBox 360 on them. What i

On the WEGA the panel control module and possibly the left side planer board is done for. On the other sounds like the planer board on the dark side is done a well.
Get your son a Gaming type monitor cause this will continue to happen due to the higher refresh rates demanded on the gaming software.

My xbox360 screen freezes when playing homefront. what do i do?

Sounds like the Homefront CD is scrattched, I would take a rag and slowly clean the CD by strokeing it on the back side in a straight line dont swirl the rag around just do straight lines all the way around the CD and try again, if this dosent work. Try installing it onto your Xbox360 and that usually helps with any reading problems. Hope this helps!

I dont now how to get my xbox360 to play xbox games

The XBOX360 requires a update file for each XBOX game to play on it. Not all games are supported. If your XBOX360 is connected to the internet it will automatically check for an update when a XBOX game is inserted. If your XBOX360 is not connected to the internet then you can burn a DVD or CD rom from a computer with the update files and insert the disc into the XBOX360 and update the files. Or you can load then to a USB jump drive and plug the jump drive to the USB port on the XBOX360 and update from that. The details are available from here

And remember not all XBOX games will play on the XBOX360. Only ones with updated files. So if it does not play after the file update then it is not supported. Microsoft updates these files quarterly so check back once a month for more updates.

I went to go play my xbox360 at 12:26 this afternoon. and it will load the games but th screen will go blank while trying to start the game and will stay that way untill i restart it. but it does it to...

You may not see a problem, but when I got a Wii the month it came out, there were small problems. I didn't notice them until I played Super Mario Galaxy. The game froze at the obserbatory. Then I tried Twilight Princess. When I transformed into a wolf, the game froze. When playing Elebits, my sister found an error on level 6. The game slowed down. Soon it got so bad that the only game I could play was Sonic and The Secret Rings. Then I decided it was time to get a new Wii. The system had hidden problems. The new Wii had no problems. As a matter of fact, as I type this, my sister is on Wii Internet Channal watching Youtube videos! Get a new X-Box 360 before the problem is so bad you cannot get your games out of the console.

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.

Red lights... ? (different i think)

I had the same exact thing happen. The only thing to do is call 18004myxbox and have it sent out for repair. Ask to speak with a manager though, because they can usually give you a better price than the initial guy. If it's still under warranty though it won't cost anything. So weird that this happened to me playing the same game. Just got mine back yesterday.

A few unreadable disc errors, some freezing, then no picture.

Rats. Sorry to hear that. If your Xbox360 is still under warranty then you can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and arrange to have it fixed.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now:

Here's another user's story of how he solved a similar problem:

Xbox 360 scrathes my disks while inside the xbox

It sounds to me you have your 360 standing on it's side. I placed mine on it's side ONCE and because of it have a pretty scratched copy of Oblivion. Lay it horizontal, and that should rectify your issue. Let me know if this helps.
