Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro System Console

Snowy picture/vertical lines -XBOX 360 purchased in 11/07.

Hi, XBOX 360 purchased in 11/07. I'm getting what appears to be snow or dots with blurry vertical lines in the picture while playing xbox, almost as if the pixels are way down in number. I have checked the xbox cable, the xbox system settings, tried a different TV and Im still having the same issue. Is there something else I can check or is this a sign that I have internal problems with the XBOX? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks! D

SOURCE: vertical dotted line

ok either the tv is screwed and has a line of bad pixels, or there is something wrong with your xbox graphics adapter on the motherboard. Try buying a new xbox video out cable. if that doesnt work, get it serviced

SOURCE: Xbox 360 pixelated and vertical lines

Hi, this is the first step in getting the RROD. What will happen next is you will lose your video all together. The only way to fix this is by doing the X-Clamp replacement on your system. Your GPU is getting too hot and causing your X-clamps to warp, lifting your heatsink off of your GPU. This is what causes your pixelating on your T.V. the GPU is getting too hot. Replace your X-clamps and it will be back to normal. If you don't want to do it yourself then, take it to a repair shop, it isn't too overly expensive to have done.

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.

A series of dots appear on the monitor but no game pictures


Follow the steps below, Hope this helps

1. Try another Av cable ( Audio video Cable )

2. Try another television

3. If the steps dont work, call xbox customer support to have your xbox serviced. Good Luck! hope your console still has warranty

The main reason why its acting that way its possible that the Video card inside the xbox 360 is having an issue
