Not to sound stupid, but verify the controller works. If so, take the xbox apart and switch the controller ports. They unplug real easy. Put port 3,4 in place of 1,2. If that don't work email me at

This is a problem with the gpu (graphics chip) the console will need stripping down and new thermal paste applied or the motherboard needs re-balling. sorry but there is no real quick fix for this.

When I turn on my xbox 360 I hear the sound play but the screen stays black and something like static in the background


If you have tried replugging in your av cable and power cord than the only thing i can suggest is take replace the AV cable. You can get a really cheap AV cable on ebay, I'm talking about less than $10. One other thing it may not even be your av cable but your tv.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

My xbox freezes and lines/dots apear on the screen


The graphics processor, and second graphics chip both require a reflow. A special BGA reflow 'heat' machine is required.

No picture no sound.


You can try the following :

1.It might be a sign of over heating.

Is your Xbox in a open space? Like on top of a tv stand or something? Do not put it on the floor.

2.Make shure there is about 6 inches of space behind your xbox.
Get a hover, with the brush attactment and hover up the back and the vents.

3.Probably the fan.
There is something caught in it maybe.

And the last ... believe it or not ...
Its not a problem, therefor there is no solution. When an xbox makes a loud noise, or a croaking noise like you described...believe it or not....its totally normal, 100%.

I work for xbox tech support and I get ppl calling for this all the time, and the OFFICIAL word from Microsoft is, its normal, its going to happen to some consoles.

I have the xbox 360 when i turn it on the background is black and white dots move around the screen


sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. basicly your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink isnt doing its job. there could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.

this can cause the system to freeze or see things ont he screen. it needs to be repaired before more issues happen.

dont turn it on you might cause more damage
