I got my hands on a used, unwanted 360 a year ago, but the dash/operating system seems corrupted. The "XXX logged in" notifications render slanted and some games have a strong color tint when loaded (this varies by game). I also remember some strange issues with text rendering in the dash but it's been a while and I've forgotten the details. I tried factory resetting it, pulling the HDD, and replacing the built-in flash chip, but the issues persist.

Is it possible to fix this? I haven't invested much in this 360 but it would be nice to get it running if possible. Fairly certain it's the Trinity revision.

Thanks!

Did you test both video outputs?

HDMI and Composite?

With how cheap you can buy a used Trinity Xbox 360, I personally wouldn't waste the time replacement/fixing a bad video output.
You can literally get a used Trinity for like $40 these days, it'd save you a lot of time and hassle.

Try different cables and methods like components and hdmi. Report back. If no luck scrap it or sell it dirt cheap. Not worth fixing.

Booted it back up, I forgot how bad it got. After the splash screen, the screen dims as if you opened the guide menu, but the menu isn't displayed. You can navigate it with a controller but you have to do it blind, and that's all there is. And yes it's the same over composite.



Not much to look at, really. I was hoping for a repair project but I think this just isn't happening. More curious about what broke than anything else tbh. Thanks for the help.
