Hey Tamari, it's an overheating issue that is common in xbox 360 models made within a certain date range. I had the same problem a few months ago.

All you have to do is contact Microsoft tech support and provide them with your serial number. They'll ask you a couple of questions and then they'll get you to ship them the 360. (They pay for shipping).

They'll try to repair it, but if your lucky like me, you might get a new xbox 360 and one month of xbox live for free.

Hope this helps. Worked for me, should work for you.

If you have the 3 red lights showing it means that the heat build up has got too bad on the GPU and the CPU and you will need to get it fixed, you can send it in for repair or fix it yourself using a good repair guide.

Xbox360 has sound but no picture


Hi,

If you look up further on this thread i HAD the same problem. This is how i fixed it. I needed it to red ring so i could send it back in to get replaced since my 1 year warranty was up. But i fixed it instead. So here is how you do it. First i took off my hard drive on the 360. Then i plugged it to the TV not with HDTV (use the red, yellow and white make sure it is on TV not HDTV) i only say this because i didn't use the HDTV setting to fix it. then i plugged it into the wall with the 360 laying down not up and down and turned it on. (no picture but sound) with the 360 on i took 1 towel folded it long ways and wrapped it around my 360 from back to front (make sure you cover the fans in the back to make it over heat.) leave your 360 on until it red rings (you can hear the 360 quit down. it takes about 15-30 minutes depending on how fast it over heats. once this happens unwrap the 360 and turn it off wait 5 secs and power it back on and there you go you should have picture and sound again. mine has been working for 3 days now with no problem i even have it hooked up using the HDTV cables in my living room. if this don't help you now you have a red ringed 360 and you can send it in to get repaired since there is a 3 year warranty for red ringed 360's.

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

Do the following at your own risk

First take off hard drive on the 360. Then plug it to the tv not with HDTV (use the red, yellow and white make sure it is on tv not HDTV) i only say this because i didn't use the HDTV setting to fix it. then plug it into the wall with the 360 laying down not up and down and turn it on. (no picture but sound) with the 360 on take 1 towel folded it long ways and wrap it around 360 from back to front (make sure you cover the fans in the back to make it over heat.) leave your 360 on until it red rings (you can hear the 360 quit down. it takes about 15-30 mins depending on how fast it over heats. once this happens unwrap the 360 and turn it off wait 5 secs and power it back on and there you go you should have picture and sound again. . if this don'ts help you now you have a red ringed 360 and you can send it in to get repaired since there is a 3 year warrenty for red ringed 360's.
hope it helps-but remember its risky

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.
