If you have a widescreen TV, your resolution is likely the cause of this. See if your TV has a resolution setting in its menu. Don't worry if it doesn't, some TV's only have one default resolution.

Check what type of cable you are using to connect to the TV. If you are using composite cables (red, white, and yellow) and you have a flatscreen/HDTV, you should switch to component or HDMI cables. (Your Xbox may have came with component cables. They are the red, green, and blue ones, if it did and you aren't using them, use them.)

Once you're using component or HDMI, the problem should be solved. If it is not, change the resolution on the Xbox. To do this, go to System Settings > Console Settings > Display and mess around with the settings in that to find out what works for your TV.

You will get this error when your laser is in need of replacing. If your system will play regular movie dvd's but not games then replace the laser. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay.

I can not open a saved game


When you turn it on, after the title screen there is question to continue a saved game (if there is a saved game). If there is not a saved game, then once you gain control of your character press START, move the curser down to SAVE and press A. Then hit YES on the questions that follow.

Can i play xbox game on ps2


No, and No. You will NEVER see a PS3 emulator for PS2 that would be impossible. Someday you may(very very very highly debatable) see an xbox emulator for PS2 but that is also highly unlikely. Nothing for either exists on the internet as an emulator for PS2.
