So i finally got the pincushion issue repaired and that is all good.
now i hook up my xbox 360 for the first time, and the screen is cut off on the left side, almost as if the image is just a tad too big for the screen.
this doesn't happen with the dvd player using standard (not hd) cables, or on regular tv.
i've looked around on the internet and others have the same issue.
i tried setting the 360 at 720p but it didn't work-just a scrambled image.
420p produced the same results as 1080i, which is what i had it set on.
the 360 looked fine on other tvs so i don't believe it is malfunctioning, as other users with the same model tv have this same issue.
could this be remedied thru calibration?
none of the settings i could access for the tv had any effect.
Ok, I've had the same issue and I was able to fix my problem. I was getting cut off sides in HD mode on my playstation.
I entered the service menu by doing this:
Turn TV Off
Use remote and hit "Mute 1 8 2 Power" (not at the same time, but one after the other)
The TV will come on with the service menu. Enter the 1080i adjustment screen. Write down ALL the values in case you mess up. Adjust the values as necessary to fit your screen. It's sort of like adjusting a computer monitor's image for different resolutions.

Sorry not really a solution to your problem, but the TXN3071WHF wont accept a 720p signal thats why it was just a scrambled image. The TXN3071WHF will accept 480i/480p/1080i, the only thing i could suggest is try each of these outputs from your 360 and try both component inputs on the back of the TV.

I KNOW HOW TO FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but
they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX
360) or you can contact me via email at [email protected] and we
can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with
the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.
Your best bet is to get a new DVD drive. Here's how you should do it. First, open up your Xbox 360. (there are plenty of tutorials for this online, and I will be writing a Tip for it soon) Check your DVD drive's Model and F/W. F/W is the firmware model. It is the key that tells your motherboard it has the right drive. MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT ONES! This fix may work if you have just the right Drive model, but you can never be too careful.
Okay now, you will need to carefully take apart your new DVD drive. (once again, tutorials online) once you do that, un-hook and remove the new DVD drive's motherboard and place it to the side.
Next, do the same to your old DVD drive.
Finally. Take the motherboard from your old DVD drive and place it in the NEW dvd drive. hook the motherboard up and put the NEW dvd drive back together. Place the new DVD drive in your Xbox 360, hook it up. Close your 360. Turn it on. Place a game in. And viola! As long as your NEW dvd drive wasn't faulty, Your Xbox should work perfectly!
Things to try before doing this: Wiping the dvd lens with a soft cloth. wiping the game with a soft cloth.
Things to do instead of this. Send your Xbox to Microsoft if you still have a warranty. Send it to a trusted Xbox Repair Service Center. I currently run DRAGONF1R3 REPAIRS. Contact me for more info. My e-mail is in my description.
I had this problem recently. What happened was you closed the game without logging out of Playonline. The long shut down I call it. This corrupts the FFXI data on your HDD. And since FFXI does not appear in the memory you have to format your HDD and redownload. I can guarantee if you put the disc in your xbox with no HDD that it will read or even place it in an xbox with a HDD that has never had FFXI.
Your xbox 360 console is overheating. Make sure all your vents are clean and unobstructed. Allow to cool for a few hours. If problem persistes you'll need to contact microsoft. May be an issue with the cooling fan
I have a very similar problem I had a few days ago. But what I did was I shut down the Xbox 360 console completely. Then I unplugged the power cord from the Xbox 360 console and the wall outlet, and then I disconnected the batteries from the wireless controller. let it sit for about 5 min. Then plugged everything back in, and finally I hit the the wireless connecting buttons on both the Xbox 360 console itself, and the wireless controller(s).
And from then on, I have had no problems, what so ever since I did that (above).
