Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Ok so sometimes when I turn on my xbox, there will be no video. Instead, there will be purple lines. I can fix this in about an hour by doing the "towel trick" and it will work for anywhere from one time to a week's worth of play. I know when it will be the last time it will work by weird green and red discoloration. I was wondering if anyone else has been having this problem and have come up with a more concrete solution than just the towel trick. Thanks everyone!
I had this problem with my last 360 that I had, I did the towel trick for about 2 or 3 months and it finally gave up on me. I was forced to turn it in to Microsoft and have them fix it. If you don't have a warranty you will have to pay 150$ to get it fixed. If you don't want it fixed and rather get a new one, Ebay sells new ones for around 230$. I know there are ways to fix it by opening your 360, but you have a greater chance of damaging it even more and ruining your warranty on your 360. Which Microsoft will not fix once you have opened it yourself.
