Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

X-BOX 360 sound but no video

I was playing PGR4 online when all of a sudden my screen started changing different colors and then went red for about 30 seconds and then turned black with dots going diagnally across the screen.    At first I thought it was a problem with the A/V cords so I took it to my friends house and used his T.V,power cord, an A/V cords and I still didn't couldn't get it to work. My warrenty is expired and I bought it about 4 months ago. Now I'm wondering should I do the towel trick!?!OH.. and by the way my X-BOX is refurbished just to let you know. I got it at Game Stop.

Hi.. sorry to hear about your problem that is unfortunate. I believe you can still contact microsoft bc they extended the warranty to help with the red ring of death issue that most people have had. Call gamestop and find out if they can tell you how old the system is or just contact miscrosoft directly and explain your issue.. i know right now microsoft has extended the warranty to 3years out just not sure when that was implemented and how old your system is..

good luck and let me know how it goes, hope this helps you..

Xbox 360 is on , but no Picture/Sound

THE TOWEL ONLY HEATS IT UP MORE AND THE 2 X CLAMPS INSIDE WILL VIBRATE ONLY 2 MAKE THE MAIN XBOX CHIP 2 COME OUT OF ITS PLACE.... SO THIS IS WHAT U DO!!! First Get a Screw driver and take out the covers of the xbox and ull see a metal sheeting. Then take out all the screws from the metal board. then take out the other things (take out the fan last) Then If its the graphics chip thats broken then u need a new one but if its out of place, replace it and put the xbox bak 2gether. The  the prob shud not happen again. This is what happened 2 me only last week. it shud only take 30 mins 2 fix.
But the other prob could be the cord cause the cord might be old faulty or broken cause my friend had dat prob.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting

Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?

Two red lights on 360

Your console is overheating, the only things you can really do are..

Return your console to Microsoft who should repair/replace the unit

Do an X-Clamp replacement, which means you'd be voiding your warranty because you have to open up the console but this also means you can add extra cooling to the 360.

Make sure there is plenty of space around the 360 for air ventilation, make sure your vent grills aren't obstructed in any way.

Call Microsoft and explain your situation.
