This probably means that it can't detect your hard drive

1. try amd cold boot with a newer game in the drive. they have the updates on them

2. see if the hard drive is disconnected and try reconnecting it with the 360 unplugged

    How To Get Original Xbox Game Support for Xbox 360


    Get the Download


    • Get the Original Xbox Game Support December 2006 update.



    -->
    Original Xbox® game support enables your Xbox 360™ video game console to play an array of games from your original Xbox video game console. A list of games that are currently backward compatible is available here and we will continue to add support for additional games over time.

    Original Xbox game support requires a hard disk drive (HDD) accessory on your Xbox 360 console.

    There are three ways to obtain updates for your Xbox 360 console:



    Technical Support

    Xbox LIVE Update
    Getting the update free through Xbox LIVE is the best option because your console will be updated automatically as new games are supported.

    In order to update your Xbox 360 console over Xbox LIVE, a broadband Ethernet connection to the Internet and an Xbox LIVE account are required. The Xbox LIVE account can be either a Gold or Silver membership.

    The first step is to connect your Xbox 360 console to your broadband connection. See http://www.xbox.com/connect for details.

    The second step is to create an Xbox LIVE membership or add Xbox LIVE to your offline profile, if you haven't already. A profile can be created from the Dashboard by pressing the Xbox 360 button and selecting "Sign In" or by pressing the X button. The Dashboard will take you through the process of creating a profile, but you need to select "Join Xbox LIVE" to finish creating the profile.

The camera took great pictures then all of a sudden the screen appears as a purple haze -- and the pictures come out as just a purple blurry haze. Adjusting brightness doesn't work. Yet, the shutt


If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!

Purple Screen


If it is only 2 months old,then you still have warranty.
A purple lcd, viewfinder and photo is a 100% CCD failure.
If out of warranty, not worth the repair.

Purple instead of black when watching vids on xbox 360


Sounds like your 'Box is on its way for an E74 Scaler Chip error mate.

Send Back to M$ if you can if you are out of warranty you could always apply a heat gun to the HANA chip to Reflow its Solder joints.
