Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

RE: no picture and no sound

I'm positive it's brand spanking new, unless they just refurbished it and slapped a new lable on it.

also, i have it placed right over my vent on a glass surface table, it's getting plenty of cool air, at least i hope it was, i don't see why it wouldn't... but uh... on one of the many papers that came with it, one says not to return it, it says to call support or whatever... think i should give it a shot or will the store just flat out give me a new one?

how old is this xbox360?? did you buy it new or used??

if it new i would return it to the store where youve bought it.

if its old, then perhap it overheating. trying putting a fan on it or blowing some compressed air in the holes where the fans are usually by the power plug.

if the cpu over heats you'll likely to have trouble and problems

    turns out the problem was that the large power source thing that's attached with the power cord was too close to the console itself

    gave off to much heat and fried it i'm told

    sorry for the... 6+ month delay

On ANY dvd I put in, I get the message "Disc Error: Playback feature may not be available on this disc". I've tried cleaning the dvd, switching dvd's, and cleaning the dvd player with a cd...

I would say yes - it might be time to replace the whole unit. It sounds like the laser has failed completely in this player or is too weak to read the signals from each disc that is inserted. The problem is this part is not repairable at any level, it would need to be replaced, but this is not economical (assuming the parts are available), due to the expensive added labour costs involved.

In the long term, it is cheaper and easier to simply buy a new unit (combos still exist and the replacement unit does not need to be brand spanking new in a box either - but a manufacturer refurbished one with a warranty is acceptable if you can find such a unit).

Since this is not a DVD recorder, nor is it a Blu-Ray player, it might be time to put this one to bed - but you can always submit it to a service centre for a quote on the likely cost(s) and get a second opinion - then you will know for sure where you stand.

Only replace the combo unit as a last resort.

My 42inch plasma bush tv made a load bang noise as i was watching it yesterday. The picture immediately dissapeared, but the sound stayed.

That sounds like the plasma power supply section has stopped working.
Replacement module probably. Fairly expensive, maybe, unless there are some refurbished panels out there.
Hope that helps.

What does the yellow light mean in a Microsoft Wireless Mobile mouse 3000, model 1359?

After I tried all the reset, new battery, reinstall software with no results I put it in my hand and slapped it really hard with my other hand and the yellow light went out and it works again. I'm not making this up! Spank your mouse.

Set needs to be slapped to get a picture

TV's need a good slap once in a while to set them right! Just kidding. Sounds like you have a bad connection that once the set is warm it mends itself. Have a technician look at it.

Voice coil has been blown open. Most likely alot of times what I do to test a speaker is connect it to a 9 volt battery. on and off and the speaker should bounce. If not speaker is blown. Plus this way you could save yourself lots of problems. If the speaker was shorted and not blown open. You would now possible have a blown amp and home stereo.
