Hi the problem you are having will lead to the red ring of death, you get the rrod when the gpu and cpu chip have over heated, as you get the sound and no picture or loss of both this says that the gpu is over heating and needs fixing.
you can try the following
1 switch the xbox off and leave it off for at least an hour
2 check all air vents are free from dust
3 make sure your not using the xbox on carpet or on top of anything like dvd or sky box
any of the above will cause it to over heat so make sure the xbox is not in a confined spaced and not on top of anything else

remove the leads from back of xbox and remove hard drive, plug all the leads back in making sure the leads are pushed in properly in the xbox and back of telly, then if you still have the problem try and borrow a friends video lead to try on your xbox.

if it still dont work then this suggests it has over heated and the damage is done so check if you have any warranty before you do anything with it, then if you have warranty take it back and get it exchanged or if your warranty it out you need to get the gpu and cpu heat sink changed and the x clamps removed and getting this done should get it working.

but you need to know that say out of every 10 i do work on only 2 wont work and would be classed as scrap, i repair these for about 25 quid plus parts which is about a fiver so your looking at roughly them prices to get it fixed, i work on the basis that if i dont fix the problem i wont charge for the work i just charge for the parts used.

let me know if you need further assistance

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My xbox 360 doesnt want to read the game. when i put in gears of war, it tells me to open tray. i open it then close it and again it tells me to open tray. ive done the clean cd and still the same thing....


Unfortunately this is a common issue with the xbox. If you have tried all the steps that are provided on the xbox support website, it may be time to call xbox support and get your xbox repaired. If it is out of warranty, I'd honestly just get a new one cause the repairs run about $120 out of warranty.

Describe your Hi, ive got E74 1 light, ive gotten it checked out by a guy locally, i was there, and everythings fine, gpu's perfect, and ive tried 2 different AV cords and an HDMI cable and it turns on...


if the unit was purchased less than three years ago you can still get it covered under warranty as addressed on microsoft by clicking here. this is actually a serious problem and effects a few consoles, much like the RROD if it is not under warranty you can try doing this and i stress the not. Make sure of this by calling microsoft before attempting this. if you do not want to do the overheat fix i suggest either A. find a company that fixes xbox's and provides a real reflow. Not a heatgun and a fan. But a actual infrared reflow station. or B. Send it to microsoft and pay the money to get it repaired. or C. sell it on your local craigslist or to someone that repairs them locally and use the money to buy a new xbox 360 slim or a used xbox 360 that is working but then someone might have already done the overheat trick and it may not have much life left.


i have done this before and after he 2nd time i sent it to a company to reflow the xbox for 30 dollars. An i havent had a problem since. remember what is done in the video is only if your not covered under the extended warranty or e74

Xbox 360 video failure, new AV cable does not work help plzzz


do you still have a warranty? if you do send it to micro soft theyll fix it if you dont, you would need to open it and take 5 pennys and wrap them in electric tape *the black rubbery kind* then take off the white duct thing thats right by the fans and find a chip that says ANA or HANA and place the pennys on that and see if it fixs it and if it doesnt then you will need to do the x-clamp fix you will see how to do it in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAhI8KYz0rc hope it helps!!!

One flashing red light


I know how to fix consoles; and I have a customer with the same problem. I have done the x-clamp replacement and it worked fine for a couple of days, Now the same problem keeps coming back. Look up how to do the x-clamp replacement online, this will work most of the time. Good luck.

My Xbox 360 has sound but no Picture


This happened to my first 360, and in my case, it was a hardware failure. You can call Microsoft and hope your warranty is still good, and they'll fix it free of charge, but if its not, then you have to pay a fee.

Ive tried the 3 light fix for the xbox 360 it keep shuting down


Make sure you have all the clamps on the chips tight. If one pops loose it will cause this.

you ring microsoft, say you have 3 red lights (which you obviously dont have) and they take some details and you send it off and they send you a new one. Same thing happened to me, and thats what i'm doing.
