Try your xbox on a different tv, if it continues to have the same problem, or just wont show up then there is a problem with the video output on your xbox. If your xbox is still under warranty then you should send it in to Microsoft for repairs. Warranty information can be found here:

The red light of death is a common problem with Xbox, if it stays red you would have a problem, there is a known cooling problem with the internal workings with the Xbox I suggest you get a cooling fan that clips onto the Xbox and plugs into the USB socket it is available on E bay an costs around fourteen pounds. Make sure your Xbox is properly ventilated.

Hi, i have a Thomson Intuiva TV. Its been working fine untill recently when it started turning itself off! I only use the tv to play my Xbox 360 Slim. I left it over night and tried again today but the...

This is a common fault in many electronic systems . when the set ages it deteriorates in the connections. There is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs or poor performance.

The best way to check for loose connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on , If there is change while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points.

Sometimes the fault occurs when the set warms up, if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller, driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault.

Based on the above method you must be able to locate the area of fault and solder the sections. Sometimes large IC's- ones with more pins- tend to have drying in some pins and so cause faults related to the IC's protocol. Have a rough idea of looking into the areas to reduce the time of probing.

Coolant fans will not turn off when vehicle is turned off

If the fan motor keeps running for a feww minutes after the engine is off that is OK. If it just stays on for more than a few minutes then you may have a problem with the fan relay or temperature sensor.

this happens to me with my adapter but I happen to get it to work by leaving it plugged in and leaving the xbox on.or i restart the xbox over and over. Mine seemes to have like a charge time so keep restarting and plugging the adapter in other ports.. It should after a while turn on. if not try another adapter because it may not be the adapter that's causing the problem. Your console may have bad ports.

Rca 27v414t shut off by it self after a feww seconds.

Most likely the TV is detecting an internal problem with it's circuitry and is shutting itself off to prevent further damage. You'll need to have a professional look at your set to determine exacly what's going on. Aside from leaving the power cord unplugged for five minutes, then pluggin back in and trying it again, there's nothing anyone can do from here. It may work, but it's a long shot.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

TV wont stay on

The vcr carriage was probably damaged ( broken gear or carriage gear, etc ), As for repairing it, it may not be worth it and chances are, you won't find a new carriage for the unit. I have, in the past, disarmed the VCR unit and at least the customer could watch the TV. Thats not possible in every set, but it seems to work in the majority of them. Good Luck
