Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi gang, I need help
when i boot i sometimes get into the game and then it crashes, when i boot again i get a checkered screen on the xbox initial boot loop. IE the green screen with the x box logo. I have no blinking lights nor any red lights.
Any suggestions or time for a new one?
Hi, I had this same problem. I would turn the system on and not to much time after that the video would go checked and blurry. I could reset and it would come back on but shortly after that it would do it again. Sometime I would even get it to play awhile before it checkered. Finally one day I put a movie in and just let it play. It finally went to the 3 rings of death. When I reset it it would work for awhile and eventually lead to 3 rings of death. I decided to do the x-clamp fix on it because for Microsoft to cover it on the extended warranty they will ask you at tech support to turn it off and on a couple times while they are on the phone. Since it doesn't do it right away I figured what the hell..cann't lose by trying. I did the fix and didn't even have to heat it to reflow the chip. Just applied the fix and turned it on and its never happened again. Works like new again.

check the A/V out socket from console to TV.
If it,s in a unit or cupboard near other electrical Appliances.
1:- Is it overheating.
2:- is it picking up electrical interference from another unsuppressed source. this could be a poor wiring connection on another plug, in the same socket or board as the 360.
Try it on another TV.
Change the output lead, or swap cable output style. i.e from Scart to A/V out type. ( red-white-yellow )
Hope this helps you solve your issue.
If non of the above works, it,s looking towards motherboard issues. ( Graphics Processor )
