My xbox wont turn on, it keeps saying no signal and mode not supported or a black screen, ive tried different sockets but nothing is working, the lights are green, but it goes a light orangey colour at times, the other while playing in the games online the screen kept going pink and red and u could see the shape of a disc on the screen, i turned it on the nxt day and it wouldnt, it gets really hot really quickly but the fan isnt broken because there is a breeze coming out of the back still. any1 got any ideas? thanks

Re: Xbox 260 wont turn on
It sounds like one or more of the GPU connections has a bad connection. This means it is very close to dying from the 3 lights of death. Your unit needs to be sreviced by a professional or Microsoft.

this will happen depending where you got your xbox from and where you are located.
There are multiple types of TV signals. Typcially two are used NTSC and PAL. If you have a TV and are in a country that supports PAL and you purchased say an XBOX from america then you will have a black and white screen or no game at all. Same thing goes if you are in america and say purchased the xbox on ebay from a perosn in europe. You will get a black and white game cause your TV is NTSC and not PAL.
Many game units will support BOTH signals but are locked to a signal of the region the console was intended for sale on.
I'm thinking bad AV cable or bad port on your TV. I assume the Xbox dash board won't come up, if so the "no signal" message is a TV error message not an Xbox error message. Try a different port on the TV and/or a different TV; also try a different AV cable. Good luck. Please rate, thanks.
cheapest option is to check your cables are in the right sockets on xbox and tv, a crossed cable would result in no signal. if in right sockets next would be to try different cables to check if yours are broken. borrowing would be cheapest. new cables would still be cheaper than any problem from inside the xbox.
out of my years of xbox modding ive never seen this screen. but i have seen this screen in a modded x360. means the firmware on the dvd drive is not reading the disc properly. ive never seen this in a xbox
hi what you need to do is get onto the tvs menu and turn off the auto function that selects best picture like widscreen 16.9 the screen ratio if you put it on one of the other settings other than auto you wont have this problem just try each setting untill you have correct picture so as it fills the screen. Let me know if you need further asssistance ok
