Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Hi bought a new xbox 360 elite CODMW2 unit today. Connected with HDMI which worked for about 25 mins then went blank. Tried with new cable on another tv, still didn't work. But composite cable works. Suspect the HDMI port on the xbox is fried - any suggestions for anything I could try before taking the box back?

Hi, I've had my xbox 360 elite console for


might want to check the cable, if you are not getting light from the xbox360 most likely you have changed something on the TV. make sure its on the right setting

HDMI device has to be on first in some cases.

make sure the plug is good and well connected.
restart the xbox360 and try again.
try the xbox on another hdmi device to see if it working.
or try the regular mode of the xbox.

My Xbox 360 keeps showing a black screen


1. Get 3 towels then switch your Xbox 360 on.
2. Wrap the Xbox 360 in the towels [Note - You must cover the WHOLE Xbox otherwise it won't work].
3. Leave your xbox for 25 mins in the towels.
4. When the 25 mins is over take off the towels of and let your Xbox 360 to cool for 20 minutes, enjoy fixed gaming for the next 4-7 days. Once you get a blank screen repeat this process.

[Why Overheat it?]
When overheating it you attempt to solder the dis-connected wires back to the motherboard.
I recommend getting it fixed instead.

[What does it Fix?]
This fixed the Red Ring of Death, and the Blank Screen of Death

[DANGER]
I do not take responsibility for this. This is mainly for those without warranty or money to repair.

The premise is to wrap the towel around the 360 and to let it heat up. This will weaken solder points and hopefully re-join broken connections. The problem with this method is that you have no control over what solder points are weakened and there is no way to prevent further damages caused by the heat. It is better to send a 360 in for repair with the three year warranty that MS put on the 360s, because if you try the towel method and then send it in for repairs, they will know by the solder points being misshapen and it will void your warranty forcing you to pay for the repairs.

Xbox 360 hdmi cable


Make sure both the xbox and tv are on and tv is on HDMI source. It won't recognize each other unless xbox is turned on and tv is set to the correct source.

360 elite seems to be continuously restarting itself


this is not an issue with tv or anything else, the xbox is defective, everyone i know that owns a 360 has had to return or rebuy the console at least once or twicee, i recomend returning iit to the store you bought it from and exchanging it for a working unit, it'll be sent back for repairs anyway but then you get a working unit faster and if you send it to get repaired yourself there is a good chance it's gonna cost you, maybe just shipping but microsoft has horrible support for all of their products, they wanted me to pay to have the xbox i bought brand new fixed plus shipping to and from, because the dvd drive didn't open from day one, i returned it to ebgames and they gave me a working one on the spot. FYI if it were an issue with the tv or compatability then you would not get video or distorted audio/video or something of that nature, the xbox would still stay powered on.
