Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

White lines and Buzzing, then Freezing after 2-5 mins.

After about 2-5 minutes of having the console running, the screen starts shaking with white lines appearing. It makes a buzzing noise then just stops. I have already blown out any dust with an air compressor and it did not help. I want to get it fixed but i don't want to risk opening it and breaking it.

This is a graphics processor unit(gpu) fault, the console needs stripping down and new heatsink compound applying to the gpu, this is basically the same fix for rrod, so there are plenty of guides on this site or youtube if you want to tackle this yourself.
Thumbs up if this helps.

Loud buzzing noise


Mine is loud also when playing games. When playing DVD's it is not. I think it is a factory defect on some of the systems. I would not attempt to pull apart the DVD drive and try and fix it. It is working and on an XBOX 360 you should feel lucky that it is.

My Super Nintendo-- Black screen, white lines, buzzing sound


You just need to clean the game. Wipe the gold strip on the bottom of the game with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

The screen goes blank, wii emits buzzing noise.


refrain from playing for a few days.

its what you call a black screen of death. it will keep happening until your wii stops if you dont refrain from playing for a while and obey the health/safety rules (sometimes the wiis pass becuase the health/safety rules hide the bsod) [health/safety rules: take a ten - minute break every hour.] BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WII IT IS VERY FRAGILE IF IT GETS A BSOD!!!!!!! {fragile=easily damaged INTERNALLY}
