    Over the weekend my 360, or most likely my monitor, started to do some odd things.

    When I died during Max Payne I quickly pressed the A button to retry. This caused the screen to go blank. I could still hear the game and there were no red lights on the console so I switched the screen off and back on and the picture came back.

    This kept happening each time I died. This is the really strange thing: If I wait a while and then click to retry the screen does not go blank.

    I tried a different HDMI cable (plus component cable) and TV and the blank screen issue didn't occur.

    I use the same monitor for my PC (using d-sub connector) and I haven't had any problems.

    The monitor is fine during standard gameplay but I found it also went blank when a cutscene kicked in during Binary Domain.

    I assume it has something to do with a different signal which is causing this problem?

    To top it all it seems like the washing machine is going wrong too. Bloody machines hate me.

    FLOPS! RAM!
