Xbox 360 stretched screen out and cannot fix it now

I have a sanyo 24 flat and one day my kids were playing xbox 360 and when they were done i went back to watch regular tv and these odd numbers appeared at the bottom left hand corner of my screen. When I tried to make them go away the screen zoomed in and now my tv is stuck all zoomed in and the picture looks tall and stretched out. Please what can I do I emailed sanyo and that was of no help to me all t they said was to just read the manual and well theres nothing in there on that subject.

    well I called customer service and they said to unplug the tv and as I plug it back in while I hold the menu button down and a menu which allows u to make the vertical and diagonal adjustments will appear

Have you checked the aspect ratio?? May be that when the kids had the X-Box hooked up they simply changed the aspect to zoom.

How do you get your xbox 360 to play, on a 65'' mitubishi projection tv,its connected but nothing comes on screen when i put a movie in just a blank screen and no sound,if i'm on a channel,the channel...


The Xbox 360 connects to a TV using either

- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio

- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)


So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.

Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).

Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.

This should make the Xbox work.

When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.

How would the easyest way to hook up xbox live for my kid .

Hi there,

First, take out the XBOX 360 and place it so it's sitting horizontal. Do not set it down as it appears in the photo above. A lot of people who do this don't realize that they are covering the air vents, giving your console much less battery life. (In other words you might turn it on one day and see the awful Red Ring of Death.)
Once you do that, take out the cables. The best image you can get is going to be with an HDMI cable. That looks like this:
Then take out the power cable. It's the cable that's attached to a big gray box. Plug that into the back of the 360, then plug the other end of it into a surge protector. Do not plug it into a wall because if you have a power surge, you may end of frying a component inside your 360.

Once you have done that, put two AA batteries into the controller. (There should be a clip on the back of the controller that comes right off. The batteries go in there.) Make sure you put them in the right way as labeled on the controller or it won't work.

Once you've done this, turn on the 360, then turn on the TV. Change your TV to the appropriate HDMI Channel and watch how well your kid learns in just a short amount of time. :)

Hope this helps.

My kids and I received an xbox 360 for Christmas about 3 years ago. It was only played on the weekends. One day it just stopped working without warning. When a game is put in, it does nothing, same...

Don't worry this problem is quite common.

It happens because the sensors on the back of the drive are overheating, the good news is that you do not normally need to replace the drive all you need to do is stop the heat build up.

To do this you can send it in and they will fix it for you although you will be looking at about 4 weeks waiting time and then you will also have to pay out $140 in repair fees.

If you don't want to get it fixed this way the other way is to use an Xbox 360 Repair guide and repair it yourself and the hardest thing about this is finding a guide that will show you how to do this.

I have put a list of the best guides HERE - if you find this helps please rate it so it can help others.

Brand new xbox and fable 2 disc. Will not play!

This will surely lead to the red ring of death people are talking about, i got that the other day, sent my xbox to microsoft and they fixed it for me for free, But you cant have your warranty sticker broken or they wont touch it. Microsoft will fix it for free since it is a problem for nearly all the xbox 360 they made.

Xbox 360 static lines no picture, but sounds,

Log in to your XBox live account and sign up to return your box for service. Even if it is out of warranty Microsoft has been fixing them for free including covering shipping. Our box just went through, took 11 days total.
