Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem.

The towel trick is a temporary fix, use it over and over again till you get 100 dollars to send it in.

    try removing the hard drive and rebooting and also maybe another set of cable if you can get some. last resort is you have a hardware failure(gpu, scaling chip et cet)

Problem with the InFocus IN1 Gaming Projector (when recieved) - No red, constant yellow tinge and constant lines.


It is because the xbox 360 is set to 60hz, change it to 50hz and it will be clear like it's meant to be. However, some 360 games are 60hz so for those games the quality is not good.

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.

Dvd player plays with yellow tinge


If you are using a scart connection, check that it is plugged in fully & straight, also check for bent or missing pins.

Sounds like you have no green input.
