My 360 began messing up while playing a game of Halo 3. The colors began to change and now when I turn it on I hear the sound, but the picture is black with diagonal white dots. Please tell me what to do

Re: Video no longer works, only sound
Hello! This is similar to the Red Lights Of Death. But instead of your CPU having a bad connection, it's your GPU. There is a 3 year warranty on the 360, so call Microsoft and get it repaired or replaced. If the warranty seal is broken you can take it apart and replace the x-clamp with 4 screws, 8 fiber washers, 8 steel washers and heat sink paste. Contact me for further instructions if doing it yourself. I hope this helps.

hold down the sync button and turn on your xbox (while still holding sync) untill it boots all the way. now goto settings > memory > games > halo 3 and delete all downloadable content and boot halo 3 if you get an update allow it and if everything goes well you should be able to get to campagne and eveything then redownload all downloadable content. some updates mess with the DL content and the holding of the sync while booting clears all failed updates and redownloading should reconfig the files to work wih the update. Hope this helps.
Sorry to say but you need join the que of people frustrated by the problems that Halo 3 suffers on the XBox 360.
Simply search the internet and you will find a plethora of people having the exact same issues.
Some have found that running the Halo 3 update helps, some find it makes things worse. This is a know issue that Microsoft are once again denying and there appears to be a few law suits being attempted.
My suggestion? Return the game tot he store as faulty and buy it for your PC instead. Sorry this is probably not what you want to hear.
