My Xbox doesn't seems to like HDMI cables anymore. It used to play just fine with HDMI. Now when I try to use an HDMI cable, I get this:

That's the dashboard. I've tried navigating to the display settings and changing them but no matter what setting I choose I still get a scrambled image. It still works just fine with the composite AV cable. It's a zephyr Xbox (white disc tray instead of silver) so I don't think it's an over heating issue. I haven't even used it much lately. I'm hoping it's just a handshake issue that can be fixed. I tried on a different TV to no avail as well as with a different cable.

Help please?

Yep.

You could try and reflow the HANA chip and stick a small heatsink on it (if it works again)

But I don't think it'll work for long.


New 360 (or second hand Jasper from late 09 begin 2010) is the best option.
Since you got a Zephyr and those are known to RRoD.

I was wrong, it's actually a Falcon Xbox and not a Zephyr. Guess it doesn't matter now though lol.

It's still under warranty for E74 so I'm gonna send it in to get it fixed. Maybe if I get a job this summer and I have some money to throw around I'll sell this old model and buy a newer one.

They replaced under warranty old Xboxes with Xenon/Zephyr 360's back in 05/06.

So it's likely that if you send a under warranty Phatty that they'll replace it with a Slim.

Motherboard related is likely.
They can't simply replace a part on a Mobo ;p

DVD related probably not.
They swap out the DVD drive and send it back is what I think.


They did replace the non compatible XGD3 360's (with the 13xxx update) with Slims.

I say just go for it and try.
You'll never know ;]
Oh!
Take your harddrive off and KEEP IT AT HOME!
You can unscrew the HDD enclosure and fit it in the Slim if they send a 4GB version.

I say go for it.

afaik they arnt replacing them with slims back unless you sent a slim in
