Log in to your XBox live account and sign up to return your box for service. Even if it is out of warranty Microsoft has been fixing them for free including covering shipping. Our box just went through, took 11 days total.

Xbox 360 flickers across screen


it is your av cable however the components in the cable get a small static boost when u are using your controller so it becomes an intermittent fault ie;....when in game vidios or watching dvds, u rarely use the controller so u dont see the flickering and u only see it when in game play because u are in constant contact with the controlls and the components inside the av cable recieve a small static boost causing the interference.

Xbox 360 freezing


There are two possible solutions to this issue. One the data that you downloaded either got corrupted during transfer somehow or during a resent save. You should delete all the iformation off your hard drive and start fresh. If this doesnt work try takeing off your hard drive and playing a game if it deosnt freeze you will need to either try the delete method or get a new HD.

If this doesnt solve your issue then it is very possible that your system is headed for the red rings of death. My system was fried after i had played assasins creed. It would freeze up and create this checker pattern on my back ground my system shortly after went red ring.

Game freeze


Try playing the game without your HD hooked up if the game still freezes this is a known problem and will need to be replaced. Mine started to do this just shortly after i played assasins creed and about a week after i got the dreaded red ring of death. If your system doesnt freeze after you play it without your HD in then you should be fine just delete all the saved files off your HD and start fresh.

Screen blank


use the towell trick! Wrap the 360 in 2 towells turn on and leave running for 15 minutes. It gets very hot but after the 15 minutes turn off the console and power it back on again and it should work. Dont know if this is a permanent fix but my 360 hasnt broken again so far. Dont ask me how but it works, google it if you like. It also cures the 3 red lights problem.
