Call of Duty - Scrambled screen when using red dot or ACOG sites

Hi guys,

I've looked all over, but have found no one else complaining about this problem. I was playing COD4 on a regular CRT tv and was getting scrambled blocks when zooming most sights, even some with iron sights. It is especially bad with the ACOG. I bought a new Samsung 32" at 1360x768 and tried all of the different settings, but still have the same scrambled zoomed weapon sight issue. Any ideas what the problem could be? I'm using HDMI to HDMI and currently have the PS3 set to no higher than 720p. Thanks for any info you can provide.

Regards,

Dave K.

    Thanks Randy. It has done this since it was brand new. I had it hooked up to the original TV with the component cables and it did the same thing. I don't think it's the DVD because it only happens when zooming the weapon sights. I play sniper a lot because it doesn't cause the same distortion. It seems to be prevalent when using the open zoom sights, like the iron sights, to a lesser degree, and the ACOG/Red dot sights. The .50 scope is not affected to any great degree. It also distorts when the final game tally is showing and if I suicide with a grenade (too much cooking:) Anyways, thanks for the input. I'm just surprised I haven't run across anyone else having the same problem.

    Best Regards,

    Dave K.

Do you have any scrambled blocks with any other game?
if not, try cleaning the CoD 4 Disk. wipe from the inside out with a lint-free cloth. do not use a circular motion.

Use the composite connections (Yellow, Red, White) instead of the HDMI.

If that does not work, return the disk to the store.
If you cant, call Activision and tell them that you have a corrupted disk. they should give you instructions on how to send it in.
I had a problem with the disk "dobj for xmodel ‘body-mp-usmc-woodland-assault’ has more than 128 bones (see console for details)". just called them and told me to send them the disk.
2 weeks later, got a ticket to get a new CoD 4 Disk from the store, free.

Why is there a scrambled screen with audio?


Hi April, Using the HDMI or the provided RCA jacks (red, white, yellow) any time you switch between the two you will need to perform a video reset on the system. It's the same process for all models. I am putting in a link that tells you exactly how to do it. ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

Why does my xbox 360 shut off by itself within 10 minutes of playing call of duty 2? I also noticed the power supply thing has a red dot on it and it is very hot?


My first thought would be that the power supply brick is bad. Bring xbox to game stop. They may let you test it out on one of their power supplies.

Ps3 freezes at startup screen/ green red dots/lines,


Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.

It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.

Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.

You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.

Hope this helps??

Scrambled screen


Sounds like your touch screen is broken. Two choices. One: If it still has a warranty, then send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search on sites like Ebay for replacement touch screens, and buy one. Then replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new touch screen.
