    My screen turned green, sometimes only in darker areas. The next day I go to turn it on and no video only sound and little white dots moving diagonally down the screen. I tried different cables and checked all connections. But I fear I have a bad video card.

    The screen at first was not displaying all the colors and graphics correctly. And now I just have the sound. I changed the cables and that worked for one session but now Its more of the same... Great sound blank screen.. I wiped down the plugs, switched inputs, and did some praying. No luck yet,

  • edge426 Jul 26, 2008

    Got a new 50 inch plasma, moved xbox to this and worked fine for some time. The colors got all distorted...like way back when your nintendo was set to channel 4 but you had tv tuned to channel 3...then moved it back to regular tv. Days later, no video at all...just audio. Still covered under Best Buy so sent in AV cable. Got new one and still and issue. Guess the whole Xbox is going to have to go back. Odd though, browsing xbox forums and here...this all seemed to start happening May to July 2008. Hmmm.

All right i had the same problem i used to play my xbox everyday and it would get over heated but over the months i started doing other things...... ; ) idk if not playing your xbox suddenly has anything to do with or not. But anyways i unplugged all the colored wires that go into the tv. Then i turned the xbox on. Next i plugged the video wire in first and the screen turned on fine. then i put the sound wires in and now it is working like it did before.


P.S. Sex is fun =)

DON'T OVER HEAT YOUR CONSOLE ! this is always
a temporary fix and will greatly reduce the chances of a solid
reliable repair , Trust me I've seen many units with warped PC board
and they prove difficult to repair.

First the problem is a slight warp Concave or Convex distortion
directly under the G.P.U. If you re-flow the chip and then properly
clamp it down so the board is true and level again your console
will give you 6-12 months of trouble free operation .I currently have
25 beta unit that are 8 months and running cool with no problems
other than a drive issues once in awhile..

Re-flow The G.P.U. and clamp level normally is a solid fix.
It as simple as that.

If you have any questions feel free to ask

If the console is not under warranty (hence you removed the seal) there is a simple fix for this - Do not do the towel trick - harms the cpu and the gpu also only works for a little while.

I am waiting for my box from Microsoft to send in my console for repair on this issue. I figured I would try "the towel trick" while waiting and it worked. The First time it resurrected my console for about 5-6 hours. The second time It has worked for 2 days without the funky color problem.

This is a difficult solution to recommend but the towel trick does work, let it over heat the 360 for about 20 min, then let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.

Towel trick , can cause perminent damage to xbox, works for few days or a few hours before u have to do it again, the teick is wrap xbox in 2-3 towels turn xbox on let it overheat and then let it cool then play, until it happens again
CAUSES PERMINENT DAMAGE... But a good solution if u want immediate play

Ok first
- take apart your xbox
-then take out the board
- then take off heat exsorbers in the back and replace them cause there worthless
(replace them with 8 pennies but 4 sets of 2 wraped in electrical tape and then put thermal paste down and let them stick
-then take the X clamps off
-then take off the cpu and cooling rod
-then take goo gone with a little bit of viniger with a cue tip and clean the 3 chips it was sitting on
- then take some thermal paste and slightly rub a litttle on just a small layer
-then put the cpu and cooling rod back on
- make sure everything is put together right
-then turn on ur xbox
-if it dosnt work right away keep it on so it gets a little bit of heat so it makes the thermel paster stay and stick
-then you should have ur xbox up and runin
And if a 15 year old can do it im pretty sure u can to
Tools you will need
-tork screw dirvers
-flathead optinal
-thermal paste
-pennies
-electrical tape
-goo gone
-viniger

I highly suggest following the advice in post #17. He is completely correct.
Some facts about the towel trick:
Will it fix your 360? Yes and No. It will make it work for a little while, hours, days maybe a couple weeks. However if you do that you will do permanent and possibly unrepairable damage to your console. You are essentially ruining your console permanently in order to play right now. Is it worth a new console?
If you are having these problems and you are under warranty send the box in to Microsoft. Go to www.xbox.com/support. Remember the warranty for the 3 rings and E74 error are 3 years now.
If you are not under warranty I highly suggest getting a skilled professional to repair your console. If the repair is not done correctly you run the same risks as the towel trick, destroying your machine.

New xbox 360 arcade no screen or sound


to start off,what type of cable are you using??
since you've already tried using 2diff TVs,basically its with the console

try using a different AV CABLES, if it still doesnt work,try calling xbox support hotline for possible replacement of your cable or for processing a repair for the xbox if necessary..

since you just bought your console,try going back to the store where you bought it and have it replaced, because for the repalcement of the cable if you call xbox support,it will take 8-12business days for toureceive it and 2-3weeks for the turn around time of the repair for the xbox.

My Xbox 360 keeps showing a black screen


1. Get 3 towels then switch your Xbox 360 on.
2. Wrap the Xbox 360 in the towels [Note - You must cover the WHOLE Xbox otherwise it won't work].
3. Leave your xbox for 25 mins in the towels.
4. When the 25 mins is over take off the towels of and let your Xbox 360 to cool for 20 minutes, enjoy fixed gaming for the next 4-7 days. Once you get a blank screen repeat this process.

[Why Overheat it?]
When overheating it you attempt to solder the dis-connected wires back to the motherboard.
I recommend getting it fixed instead.

[What does it Fix?]
This fixed the Red Ring of Death, and the Blank Screen of Death

[DANGER]
I do not take responsibility for this. This is mainly for those without warranty or money to repair.

The premise is to wrap the towel around the 360 and to let it heat up. This will weaken solder points and hopefully re-join broken connections. The problem with this method is that you have no control over what solder points are weakened and there is no way to prevent further damages caused by the heat. It is better to send a 360 in for repair with the three year warranty that MS put on the 360s, because if you try the towel method and then send it in for repairs, they will know by the solder points being misshapen and it will void your warranty forcing you to pay for the repairs.

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen


If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.

Sound But No Picture


This Just happened to me. There seems to be a lot of solder issues with the 360. I bit the bullet and tried the towel trick, where you over heat the 360 for about 20 min. I Let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.
