Check your connections to make sure that they are plugged securely into your television, if they are, make sure the selector switch on the cable is set correctly. The last thing that I would do, is to try another video cable. If that one is damaged in any way and taking on some sort of outside noise it would explain the fuzziness. Monster makes a great cable that is heavily shielded and takes on minimal noise from outside devices.

Fuzzy lines, as well as snowy artifacts are generally a sign of an overheated graphics unit. If your unit is under warranty, I'd recommend you call Microsoft. This has been covered in the past, as I've had to exchange an xbox for this very reason, so you should be able to get it replaced.
Firstly check the system configuration blade on your Xbox 360 startup screen and check your display settings, if you've got an Xbox Elite/New Premium and have HDMI cable then it should be set as Intermediate/1080i/p settings, if you have the component cables then it should all be set as default.
If that isn't the problem and your games are still loading up with a fuzzy screen then there is either something wrong with the cables in your Xbox or your TV can't handle the graphics that the Xbox is producing and you will have to go into display settings and try setting them as either lower settings or higher settings depending on the TV you have.
It will help if you can provide details to me on your TV too, I'm not as good with TV's as I am Videogame Consoles/PC's but it will help me if I want to solve your queries further.
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
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.
when the new games came out, the console updates itself when you go to play the game. Look on the back of your console at the numbers. (not serial or part) You should see 2006 or 2007. It is most likely that you have an 2006 which means that your graphics card isnt strong enough to handle the graphics from these games. If you call up microsoft and tell them that the console had the 3 red rings (even though it doesnt) They will take your console, repair it, and update it all for free.
