Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Colour keeps going and then coming back

Had xbox 360 for nearly 3 years and today for no reason the colour started going dodgy, its an intermittent fault which is getting annoying. I have tried it on a few games and start up screen and the same fault occurs. At this moment in time it is fine but it seems to be a fault waiting to go like a light bulb flickering. Do you know if its anything I can fix myself or do I need to take it in to be fixed.
Thanks

My xbox 360 wont work because i had it 3 years now, i put a game in doesn't work... i need help people...?


If it no longer works because you had it for 3 years, then you know the solution: Never keep an Xbox for longer than 2.9999 years.
If there's a hard drive inside, this could be seized due to lack of use. Grab the Xbox on opposite corners, and as violently as you can, rotate the case back and forth in the plane that the hard drive is mounted in. This action may loosen the drive's platters. I'm just guessing. Do lights come on when plugged in or does it look dead?

The colour keeps going from the game online and just normal game mode . it seems to go a yellow colour . turn the console off and leave for a while and colour comes back . although goes again after half...


This look like a G.P.U. color feed lines
is going intermittent due to Thermal expansion
of your P.C. board. Some time I diagnose the
problem with a remedy that seem to fix 95%
units .A standard re-flow procedure with the addition
of specialized hard wear to insure the G.P.U. stays
connected has been highly effective , and It seems
to last on average 9-12+ months.

E73 on xbox 360


This problem was a MASSIVE defect in the Xbox 360. Your graphic chip has been burned to an extent that renders it useless. "The Red Ring of Death" can only be fixed by calling Microsoft, and having your Xbox sent in. But not to worry, because of the RR of D, Microsoft issued a 3 YEAR warrenty to all Xboxs with that problem, so your covered!

Good Luck!

You can fix the 3 lights of death by replacing the x-clamps and the crappy thermal paste. Here is a kit to fix it and it comes with the guide too.

Xbox 360 is on , but no Picture/Sound


DO NOT USE THE TOWEL ONE!!!
THE TOWEL ONLY HEATS IT UP MORE AND THE 2 X CLAMPS INSIDE WILL VIBRATE ONLY 2 MAKE THE MAIN XBOX CHIP 2 COME OUT OF ITS PLACE.... SO THIS IS WHAT U DO!!! First Get a Screw driver and take out the covers of the xbox and ull see a metal sheeting. Then take out all the screws from the metal board. then take out the other things (take out the fan last) Then If its the graphics chip thats broken then u need a new one but if its out of place, replace it and put the xbox bak 2gether. The  the prob shud not happen again. This is what happened 2 me only last week. it shud only take 30 mins 2 fix.
But the other prob could be the cord cause the cord might be old faulty or broken cause my friend had dat prob.

2 red lights


suddenly while you are playing you get two quadrants of the ROL (Ring of Light) around the power button of you Xbox 360 console flashing red, this is an indicator that your Xbox 360 console is overheating some how.

That will be due to one of the following reasons:
  1. You set your Xbox 360 console near to any heat source or electrical device.
  2. Your xbox 360 console is not set in a well ventilated area.
  3. There is something blocking the fan openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  4. You are using the Xbox 360 external fan, and basically that's a third party accessory so it sometimes harm the Xbox 360 console.
So, try eliminating all these reasons & if you are still experiencing the same behaviour then you have to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange your console or even to get it repaired.
