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.

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

XB360 Screen colour changes and then disappears


Could possible be your television.

Or maybe your Xbox is overheating.

Try placing your Xbox in a cool spot, direct a fan at it, etc.

Or try getting a new TV or Xbox.
