So the unit decides to just destroy the video card, or at least my guess after I get a new TV. It will power up, no red rings whatsoever. You hear sound, just no screen. May be a very simple fix, however I already went and purchased a new unit so I need to get rid of this one. It's just the console, power brick, and regular cables. Unit isn't HDMI. It worked fine up until I hooked it up to my new screen, which then I started getting color loss until eventually it is now just black. I haven't hooked it back up to see if it works or not, but someone could be getting a steal here. I can throw in a off brand walmart controller as well. I will ask for $100 and see what kind of responses I get, but feel free to make reasonable offers.

Pictures upon request.

Read up on this and it seems like it's an easy fix. Something about using a heat gun and x-clamp to fix the issue, but like I said I've purchased a new unit with warranty so I still want to get rid of this.

you burned your video card, I did the same. It's not that easy of a fix, I have a black screen with a dotted grid that randomly floats around the tv. The only symptom i saw, was within a few weeks of the video card going it would show some netflix in pastel colors. $96 for microsoft to repair it, unless it was manufactured within the past year

$100 is asking too much, i would still have to pay someone $25 to fix it, assuming thats the only problem.

This one first the screen started loosing colors. Assumed it was cables or TV, then the 360 went to a black screen with sound. It never gave a error msg.

Not to be a arse or anything, but I'm not you. I will throw this on Ebay eventually just offering it here first. There are many who could easily fix this. And I am entertaining offers.
