    Happened to me while I was playing Halo 2, then a green light just shows up in the center of the power button, and the controller won't connect.

I have the red ring on ym xbox. when i turn my xbox on, on the tv it just shows a white screen and i tryed it a few days later and i am wondering how i can fix or if i have to send it to microsoft??

Best bet would be to send it back to Microsoft if you still have a warranty on your xbox. If you don't, you can still sent it to Microsoft for a price. You can also try to fix it yourself, it isn't difficult but most tricks don't work or work for awhile and then gives you the red ring of death again.

Xbox 360 console will not show video or audio on hdmi or regular video cables on any tv. console is on and running. before it stopped the picture was will noy show to fix?

xclamp fix,the thermal paste on your heatsinks needs replacing,just done one the same last week,it had no picture but had sound and no light on red ring but sound went off shortly after.You can learn how to do this on youtube,just search xclamp fix and plenty will show,and buy a xclamp kit off ebay,will cost about £2,if console is still under warranty for the first year its covered but if its past the first year the extended 3 year warranty dosnt cover this repair.They will charge £81 for them to fix it.And dont do towel trick it will get it working again but only for a few days and will do more damage to console

i had the same problem. if your sure its a problem with the console and not the cable or your TV then i recommend calling microsoft and seeing if they will fix it for free. if your warranty is up and you dont want to pay you can try what worked for me. "the towel trick" check out youtube for good how to videos.

it is most likley that your cables are broken and you need new ones go to your local eb games and pick them up for 20.00$ are unplug you a/v cable from the tv and the xbox for 10secs then plug it back in and try again if that does not work buy new cables also got to for trouble shooting tips.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting

Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?

use the towell trick! Wrap the 360 in 2 towells turn on and leave running for 15 minutes. It gets very hot but after the 15 minutes turn off the console and power it back on again and it should work. Dont know if this is a permanent fix but my 360 hasnt broken again so far. Dont ask me how but it works, google it if you like. It also cures the 3 red lights problem.
