I turned my Xbox on and the entire display had a green tint to it. I unplugged everything and plugged it in again to no avail, but then I took out the connector on the back of my tv that the component cables are plugged into and it fixed it. I'm just worried there's something wrong internally with the Xbox. Anyone else ever experience this to give me some helping words?

Have you taken a look at your TV's display settings? I have a monitor that spontaneously changes aspect ratios occasionally.

Sounds like the RGB colors were displaying the incorrect value by a fix margin (either too much G, or not enough R and B). Probably caused by a lose wire or scalar, since unpluggin/replugging fixed or reset those values.

I'm curious, is this an older xbox model? (White) Or one of the newer black slim models? Back when I owned a white xbox 360, I didn't have the red ring of death, instead, it looked like my 360's GPU was dying on me. I remember a green tint on the screen while my friend and I were playing some Halo game. It didn't go away, and I thought, oh well let's continue. Then the xbox died and gave me an error. There was a few DIY fixes online, which only temporarily fixed the problem. The fixes included having to use a heat gun to reball the joints on the GPU to the motherboard. Needless to say, I had to replace it eventually.

It's entirely possible what you describe is a loose cable out of the 3 component video cables. Regardless, to isolate the problem you should:

- try TV with another input, to rule out TV being the problem.
- try connecting 360 with same cables to different input on TV, to rule out the TV input as the problem.
- try connecting 360 with different cables, even the standard composite SD crap it ships with if needed, to the same TV, to rule out the 360 being the problem.

Something like that anyway.

What kind of TV do you have?

Reason I ask that (and not sure if it makes a difference either way) is because my co-op buddy uses a 37 inch SDTV and this happens all the time to them. It's usually the lack of red that gives it the tint.

As you said, the fix is simply to unplug and plug back in. It's been happening since day one and the 360 shows no signs of imploding so my guess is you'll be a-ight.

Did you have the wrong colour component cable in the wrong socket?
