Oh okay, tell him to check the connection of his a/v cable. possible causes could be that the cord isn't securely connected to the system at the back.

also, be sure that the switch on the end of the cable is set to either a/v or component (high definition R G B) depending on which one he's using! i hope that helps =)

On my xbox 360 when i'm playing a game then suddenly directs me to the desk top and when i shut my xbox 360 off the power button flashes green every few seconds why is this happening ?

It sounds like a DVD drive error. When the center light inside the "ring of light" blinks rapidly it thinks the DVD drive is either open or not connected. You can buy a new DVD drive off Ebay for a decent price or take it to a professional shop. When changing the DVD drive you have to also put the original PCB from the old drive onto the new one or it will not play games. It will play DVD's all day but no games. There is a bit of soldering involved. If your not confident you can make the repair check out this site for help. they do good work and are very reasonable.

If it is a xbox 360 guitar, it should have a sync button. You would connect it the same as a wireless controller. Turn the xbox and guitar on. Press and hold the sync button on the guitar until the ring of light starts flashing green in a circle, then press and hold the sync button on the console (small white button next to memory card port), until it does the same thing. The two should both stop flashing within a few seconds, and the guitar will be connected.

My xbox 360 wont let me play CoD World at War.....

Both of the left lights flashing indicates an overheating error.

Make sure you're using it in a well-ventilated area, not covered by anything, make sure the vents are uncovered etc.

if you're not already, try using the console in the verticle position (this increases the surface area that can disperse the heat).

or if all that fails, one or more internal fans could be dead. in that case, give xbox support a call.

2 red lights

This problem may occur when the Xbox console is too hot or is overheating. The flashing lights mean that the internal temperature of your Xbox 360 console has exceeded acceptable temperature limits. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.

Microsoft can be contacted by finding the number listed on the back of your video game booklets.

Good Luck to you and Happy Gaming.

Flashing 3 red lights

The 3 flashing lights suggests that it's a hardware problem and you'll have to send your 360 to Microsoft for repair. Go on and there is a link for repairs.

Cannot view picture or game for my xbox 360

Make sure you are using the correct video settings. Try using the basic red white yellow cords and see if that helps. Also make sure you have switched between HD and regular video. there is a switch on the video cable connector that plugs into the xbox.
