Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Background of any game is all one color such as blue or yellow.

Hi, Recently whenever a game was put into play the background color would be all blue or yellow and sort of have a starfield effect. It has also acted strange with our dvd movies too. Do you know what could be causing this? Thank you

    make sure the connector is plugged in correctly and the appropiate colors connector are plugged in also.



    make sure the switch on the connector is properly set for your type of TV.

To gmarshall, I had the exact same problem. no video, no audio, no red lights. The problem is that over time, the A/V input sometimes melts. I had to send mine in to microsoft. But before you do, they will tell you to buy a new A/V cable. Dont. Just bring a friend's cable over. This is just to make sure that the problem is with the console. If it still doesent work, you will have to send it in. But if you have had the 360 for more than a year, they will charge you $100. Sorry for the bad news.

When I turn my ps3 on it just shows the background


Hi, it sounds like your hard drive isn't booting up properly. Try taking it out and putting it in a different PS3. If it does the same thing then you know your HD is shot and you need a new one. Please note that you will be asked to format your HD when you put it in a different PS3 or try to put it back in yours, so be prepared to lose all your data.

When I play Halo 3 it turns green. and other games get blurry in background, I just bought Fable 2 and I cant play that because it is too blurry, its not a scratched disc, and I rmoved dust in my 360


Hi,

you may have a faulty AV lead, from xbox to TV.
or the graphics chip is failing, if you have a composite lead ( red-white-yellow-green-blue ) check that the switch is set to hdmi correctly. this is on the side of the oval connector from xbox outlet to tv lead.
try tuning into a different tv channel, check that the lead isn,t broken internally.
If this does not work, assume that the GPU Or graphics chip has come loose, and obtain A RROD repair kit.

tune down the settings in game. example: changing screen resoloution from 1200x1000 to 800x600, also decreasing the quality may help. another thing you can try is exiting ALL applications that are running while the game is running that are not needed, such as any downloading clients or anything that may be using up some of your computers processing speed.
