Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Picture breaking up

The picture on my 360 has started to go fuzzy on some games but not others. I've tried three versions of Call of Duty 3 and get the same problem every time. Medal of Honour airborne does the same thing. Forza still plays with no problems and dvd's are fine.

Am I going down the same road as everyone else. Does it look like a trip bac to MS. I've tried different tv's and cables too.

Re: Picture breaking up

Please try the following:

I think I remember people saying they had that problem, and it was caused by an update to the game. This method should not delete any save games, key word SHOULD NOT.

Good luck, guys!

My XBOX 360 is green and fuzzy, if you reset the game it will work for a little while fine but then goes back to the green fuzzy screen.

It's starting . The G.P.U is breaking away from
the main P.C. board . It will get worse with time.
You have three options

1 Send it to Microsoft ,wait 2-3 weeks and keep
your fingerd crossed.

2 do and x clamp mod on it this will get it
back to normal for 1-3 mounths.

3 Have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. back to
the board this is the most durable repair
cost will very 70.00-80.00 the 35.00 fix
is some else doing and xclamp mod that
you could have done yourself.

If you need more info just ask.

Xbox 360 picture failier

First the problem is not the tvs or the
cables as you found out. Its the G.P.U.
chip set has de-soldered itself from
the main P.C. board ,and killed your
video ,strangley this doesn't trip the
error lights eg. 1 red or 3 reds.

well you have three options

send to Microsoft.

fix it you self , its doable if your want to
try , but the fix may not last too long.

or have a repair shop re-flow the G.P.U.
cost around 80.00 and that should fix
99.9% of most problems

I hope that help a little

XBOX 360 picture breaks up

Does it happen with every game or just some of them? Could be a issue with the graphics card in the XBox 360.

No picture or sound

perhaps the xbox is causing the tvs to malfunction. i would get a new one. remember that xbox is giving everyone a 3 year extended warranty on the xbox 360
