I switched on my XBox 360 this morning only to be greeted by a green screen where the familiar XBox logo was supposed to be. In addition, it seems that I could get the sound fine but no picture. The only thing I can imagine that I did wrong was that I shut the console off while playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance instead of quiting the game before switching off the XBox 360 like I usually do.

Doing a search for "XBox 360 green screen" doesn't turn up anything particularly useful. Can anyone out there help with some suggestions on trouble shooting tips?

UPDATE: Disconnecting the XBox 360 from the power outlet for a few minutes then reconnecting it did th trick. Whew. :)

The following might be worth a try;

- disconnect + reconnect the AV input at the back of the 360 and the TV/display

- try connecting the 360 to the TV/display via an alternative input, e.g. video instead of component, or vice versa

- try a different visual source on the same input on the TV/display, e.g. DVD player

- unplug the 360 from the mains and give it a power cycle...

That's all I can think of!
