This is an issue with the 72 pin connector in the system. The contacts inside the system start wearing out or corroding and don't make as good of a connection as they used to. There are multiple places online, such as ebay, where you can buy replacement connectors for the system. The actual repair itself is quite simple. There are many places online that tell you how to do the repair and many places that sell the connector usually include some instructions. For a quck fix, adjust the angle that you are pushing the cart in and how hard you are pushing it in. You might be able to get the game to play a few times like this, but it is not as reliable as the above method.

Hi doesn't sound good. some times even replacing the connector pin and cleaning the games, gray screen can still happen this could mean that the console is most likely faulty, have had a few cases of this no matter what i do it just stays gray. try and find a replacement console either on line www.gameoz.com.au or from the auction sites.

Xbox in game 'blinking'

Was the system hooked up to an HDTV with component cables and then moved to a non hdtv? I had a similar problem when I changed my xbox from the hdtv to the non hdtv. I fixed it by using the RCA cables that came with the xbox and not the component cables that I bought from best buy.
