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.

Then you should have no trouble sending it ;p

I'd say take the risk and post the results.
I'm also quite interested in what MS does to your console.

If it's still under warranty then they'd likely replace it with a 360 Slim.
I say go for it.
my cousin just sent his phat in a few months ago and they sent a phat one back again

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

but send it in anyway, might get one now

    If it was a option just to go to jail for month as opposed to filing taxes I might be tempted, jail ain't that bad atleast in the us.

    You just go in for a month and come out with no fines or having to pay them anyway, I would be down.

    @wolffangalchemist here, jail or even simple detention is instead a way to get debts on you by the state
    outright
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because its not "free", its only free if you stay there but then they want you to pay up once you get released, for all the "shitty service" and abuse they gave you
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I'm not fucking kidding
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how its set up over here
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and you'll never be able to get out of those debts unless..you commit a crime...thus making an endless cycle
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they are "smart" you see
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they're just bastards if you ask me lol
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    some homeless people commit crimes or a lot of misdemenors to get into detention so they have some place to stay even, but of course it will never solve their finances, quite the opposite
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea....its really messed up if you ask me
