If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

The box that does not read game has a dead laser .They cost
20.00-30.00 new from Rich's PSX.and their not hard to install
or you could have a shop swap it out for 60.00-70.00.

The other box has a communications error form the C.P.U to G.P.U.
normally I re-flow both chip and replace the heat sink compound
and re clamp them , that seem to remedy the problem.

if you have any questions feel free to ask before you rate this

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

Screen freeze.


two work-around methods for those consumers who are experiencing the "freeze" issue: 1) Remove or disable the HDD
or,
2) Load three different Xbox 360 games to the main title screen of each game then load Major League Baseball 2K6 on Xbox 360. All three Xbox 360 games must be completely different before loading Major League Baseball 2K6.

One red light and slow loading


The clean disk and the "one red light" are 2 different things. You are batteling heat my friend. Unfortunately, your freezing is not a good sign if your "one red light" displays "E74" on the bottom of the screen. There are a gazillioin different methods of doing an xclamp replacement. Thats what you need.

As far as the disk read, you probably just need a cleaning. since you'll already be inside that ******, open up your dvd drive (4-6 phillips screws) and give it a good alcohol shalackin' too!

NOTE: There is probably someone on your local craigslist or used game/videop store that can repair it for you. By the time you buy all of the hardware and materials to do it "right", you might as well just pay someone that will do it for you. (don't pay more than $40.00 and look into getting a new one)
GOOD LUCK!

XBox 360 freezing- Not what you think


Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.

I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.
