Three red lights means your 360 is dying.
Hopefully it's still under warranty - and keep in mind that Microsoft extended the warranty for the 3 red light issue to 3 years, instead of just one. So if you bought it within the last 3 years, just call Xbox customer service at 1-800-4MY-XBOX. Be prepared to be on hold for a while. I believe you can also do this online.
They will send you a box and packing instructions, and they even pay for the shipping. Once you send it, you should get it back in about 2 weeks (or more likely a new 360).

I put in my portal 2 game disc and the ads show then it lods perfectly fine then all of a sudden BOOM! the screen goes green and fuzzy. I can still see the words and everythings but the backgrounds fuzzy!...


If you have scratches on the disk take it into a video game store or a movie store and get it resurfaced this should help ushally costs about $4 or so to have done. Take it to a Play N Trade Video Games store if one is around and they would be able to test it out for you as well.

If this does not help then it could be the machine itself but if you have had no other issueswith any of the games the disc repair should help.

My xbox 360 is having problems starting up and reading disc


Game Discs will not start automatically. You must start disc games from the Disc
Channel on the Wii Menu screen.
Eject the Game Disc, and turn the power OFF and then ON. Reinsert the disc and try
playing the game again.Check to be sure that the Game Disc is clean and in good condition. If dirty, wipe with a soft cloth, from the center to the outside. Do not wipe with a circular motion.
You can also try using the Wii Lens Cleaning Kit (sold separately) to clean the
internal lens.

Dirty disc error with halo 3 on the xbox 360


Thats very weird....

On both of those times you got H3, did you happen to move, or did the console fall while the game is play?

Do you normally have the console vertically or Horizontal?

Here is some info I found on xbox.com
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909819/en-us

I would also try calling 1800-4my-xbox if its the console doing this, you can have it replaced, if they try to charge you money you can turn to :
http://www.xbox360-pros.com/

I've heard good things about them.


But you may be under warranty which you can get free replacement.

Good Luck,
Cam
