    While I was playing a game the sky turned red and then the font of the words was ureadable. So i shut my console off and back on then there was no visual, you could hear things happening but you couldn't see. I tried my console on different tv's to make sure its not the tv and it wasn't the tv.

I hear sound but i cannot see any visuals

Make sure ALL your plugs are properally plugged in (green goes to green) and make sure you are on TV on the HDmi switcher (it is the thicker bottom of the cord that you plug into the xbox.) HD switch has some problems.

I cant see it but i can hear it when I turn it

Check your wires on the back of your unit, and the ones going to your television. They may not be in tight. If they are, turn it on and move the wires a bit to see if visual feed comes through. Sometimes the wires for visual die a little bit and need to be moved into an awkward position for the video to get through.

I hope this helps.

No picture cords in and correct

You need to make sure you have the right video cords. There's Component style where you have to plug the six colors in. There's regular A/V with the yellow, white, and red, the yellow is your visual. SOLUTION: Try to buy a set of cables called the RF style which is the kind of cord that plugs into your coaxial (cable port). The cords cost $10 at a Gamestop, this should fix your video problem.

It's not the TV Chord, it's the 360

It is an internal error. Most likely the gpu. I hear Microsoft extended there warranty for certain problems including the rrod or the e74 error. I believe this a precursor for one of those errors. So you should try your luck with Microsoft, they'll probably do it for free. if not i'd recommend you save up for another. 360s are pretty cheap now days, and coupled with the reasonable prices broken 360s go for on ebay. You could get a working one with little damage to your wallet. Also if you want to fix it just google it you should get plenty of repair services. Make sure you go with a reputable place/person.

P.S. You should give the 360 ventilation room(room around the 360 so it breaths in cool air not the air it blows out) since this problem was caused from long periods of heat in the xbox. Mabye buy an intercooler.
