    I have had a simular problem on my xbox elite that I bought christmas 07. The XBOX fires up normally but there is no picture just a black screen. I can here the sound through my surround sound system via an optical audio cable but no sound through the tv speakers. I tried different inputs on the tv but no changes.

Try using a different set of cables. also try using the same cables on a different input. if this doesnt not work you have a internal hardware failure

    only way to find out is to disconnect the hard drive and see what the box does. i highly doubt this though since the hard drive has no effect on the booting or video aspect of the console. it is soley a storage device

Whenever I turn it on, white dots start flying across the screen on my Xbox 360


Hi,
It sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. Basically your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink is not 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 white dots on the screen. It needs to be repaired before more issues happen. Dont turn it on you might cause more damage
Thank you

Our xbox 360 video has a black screen with small white dots moving downward. Rebooting doesn't work. We still get audio.


this is a gpu issue, you need to contact microsoft support, the xbox 360 has a lot of problems as it is a flawed design.

Black screen white dots


This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

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.

Black dots during gameplay only on 360


I had this problem with my very first Xbox 360. It started showing little white dots instead of black though. I just dealt with it for a while, and it finally got to the point where it would fill up the screen fully, to where I could only see my gun in Halo 3 and that was about it. I was forced to call Microsoft and have them fix it.
