Works fine for a while, then the colors get all crazy!
Well, this is really hard for me to explain, so I'll do the best I can! When I turn the t.v. on, it works absolutely fine for a couple of hours and then all of a sudden the picture almost becomes 3-D. The colors seem to get all out whack. What exactly would cause this to happen and would it be expensive to fix?

Okay, it could be two things, 1.) Your graphics card is either overheated or going out. 2.) it's possible you have a messed up display screen. I'd try looking at your computer display settings and see if you can calibrate the color on your screen to see if it helps or not.
Release in early 2009, I like the camera and the inbuilt memory of this phone. Firmware updates are always available and you certainly can try a software update. Nokia stopped N-gage for this phone now. If you really think its not a hardware (display) problem, and the update is not helpful, you can try to reset the phone to factory setting. The code is *#7780# for soft reset and *#7370# for hard reset. During reset it will ask for password, the default password is 12345.
i have had this happen to me several times in the field, and if it is what i think it is, you are not going to be happy =(
inside of a DLP type TV, there is a device called a 'color wheel'... it is essentially a disc made up of different colored glass that spins really fast. this disc has 3 or 6 (depending on make/model) pieces of colored glass like pieces of a pie affixed (read: glued) to a hub.
what happens sometimes is that one of the pieces of colored glass flys out of the hub, and causes a massive unbalance in the spinning wheel, which causes the hum/vibration, and since the colored glass is missing, the colors will be all messed up.
if this is what happened, then your television will require a new DLP engine.
It sounds like you both have problems with the video card. If your 360s are some of the earlier ones then that is more that likely the problem (it happened to a friend of mine). 18004MYXBOX is the Xbox support number and will try to fix it over the phone of have you ship it out to them (they send you a box and its all paid for).
