When I turn on my Xbox 360 all I see is black screen with purple lines scrolling horizontally. What’s wrong?


Can somebody explain this to me. I’ve already bought a new A/V cable and its still showing the same thing. I’ve been told that my video card might have been fried because the system overheats.

  1. look and see if you get the red rings of death if you do you have to send it to microsoft to get it fixed or get a new one

  2. If your Xbox is lighting up red around where it should be green, I’d take it to the hospital. Kidding, if you still have that handy dandy warranty, get it fixed. Purple is bad. Red is even worse.
