So when I turn on the xbox the game started playing but the colors were messed up and then I turned it off and tried again and nothing happend so now the tv won't switch over everything runs through its normal paces but no change onm the screen. I did try it on 3 different tvs I have. I couldn't try different cables because none of my friends live close enough but On one tv I have a switching box for multiple plug in and the screen stays on the tv. On the other I use a vcr and the screen just stays blue and on the other tv I did both av and hd on the av the screen starts of black and when I turned the xbox on it got a bunch of dots kinda like snow and then I turned the xbox off and switched it to hd the screen starts of kinda gray and when I turned the xbox on the screen had a bunch of lines like this. Actual image of my screen. IPB Image any help is apreciated thank you in advance

You've likely got cold solder joints under your GPU. It's basically a half-way RRoD. Your console needs to be repaired.

Is it possible to fix it at home or do I have to take it to somebody

There are home "fixes", but they aren't reliable over the long term. Your best bet would be to have someone who does reflows/reballs repair it. You're looking at around $60-80 for a reball, depending on the person who repairs it.

Depending on how attached you are to the console and the market at the time, it could be cheaper to pick up a Jasper on eBay than to get it repaired. I myself have picked up several Jaspers for around $60 on eBay.

Jasper is a revision of the XBOX 360 motherboard.
Xenon was the first for example and the Jasper was the latest Phat XBOX 360 motherboard code name.
