Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Weird colors and lights have started while i play games

I was playing Call of Duty 4 and suddenly these trippy colors started showing moving around like a lava lamp.  I can still play my game, and can still see, but its really annoying and changes all the colors of the game.  Have you heard of this?  What do I do?  This happens to all my games, so I'm assuming its a 360 problem and not a game problem.  Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks Ryan

    Yea, same here. Just bought mine a few weeks ago. Thought it was my tv, but tried using it with a new cable and my PC monitor, it took a little longer to happen, but still happened. Everything goes kinda blueish green.

GET READY Mic24, anyday now you will try to turn on your TRASHBOX360 and you will get audio but no video.

The scums at Microsoft have found a new way to rape TRASHBOX360 owner's asses for $100 since they had to fix so many RROD problems for free.

You probably will get one red light, error code E73 or E74, call 18004myxbox and have it fixed, or buy a new xbox. Some thing happened to me, cost me 80 bucks to have it fixed.

Xbox WONT read call of duty 4


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

dude that is creepy, and weird. But what I think is, i think you were so into playing call of duty,
you were talking to yourself. It was probably so awesome your brain got caught up in it and you did'nt know what was goin on. This happens to me when i'm playing halo 3. i'm so into it, I don't know what i'm doing. it's like my mind takes over if i really get into a game.

Red lights... ? (different i think)


I had the same exact thing happen. The only thing to do is call 18004myxbox and have it sent out for repair. Ask to speak with a manager though, because they can usually give you a better price than the initial guy. If it's still under warranty though it won't cost anything. So weird that this happened to me playing the same game. Just got mine back yesterday.
