Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

MY Xbox360 has been acting up lately. During game play, the screen will just start to get static on the screen and then go black. I thought maybe it was possibly getting hot, but the last time was right after the game was turned on. I have the console sitting on top of the entertainment center vertically. It sits right next to the HD TV. Any advice would be great, thanks.

This could be a sign that the xbox 360 is about to red ring. If that's the case, you can try cleaning it out with an air duster. This would be a temporary solution at best. If it does infact red ring and you are under warranty, simply send it back to microsoft, or who ever is in charge of your warranty (such as gamestop, etc). On the other end of the spectrum , it could also simply be your video cable, Trying replacing it and see if there are any positive results.

Will not play dvd's or ps2 games


Ps2 Games are not for the ps3.but the older ps3's will play them. With D.V.D.s this maybe a dust issues or the brand of dvd that your burning to. PS3 has less Ram then the Xbox360 but the PS3 has faster Ram. PC Are The Way to go cheap, fast and easy to fix.

When i play games i can play for about 4secs and then it freezes


It may freeze because your game Cd could be scratched or bad. Or maybe its not your game CD at all maybe it is your console. What you can try doing is rubbing alcohol on the game CD and see if that works. If not, try blowing into the area where you put the CD into.

Good Luck!

My PS2 Slimline goes black or freezes or skips during gameplay.


No you prolly dont have a warranty at all. I dont on my refurbished disk. As far as the game not playing it has to do something with the Cd. Alot of times the people that sell the disk send it through a certain kind of scanner and it erases or screws up the CD somehow. U might wanna take it back and get it replaced if its not to late.
