Console's Red Channel keeps dropping out

Was hoping someone could help me with this.

My 360 works fine, but here recently it has started not displaying the red component of any graphics displayed. In other words, anything that is supposed to be red or have a red tint goes grey/brownish. It fades in and out. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it doesn't.

I've checked all my connections, they're all secure (I'm using component from my original xbox360). I've made sure its not a tv problem by verifying it doesn't happen in regular tv or with my PS3. I've connected it directly to my TV (I usually have it plugged into a receiver) and it has the same issue. So its down to the Xbox.

Is this a sign my 360 is about to go with a red ring error? Any help is appreciated!

Is there any way you could check it with another cable, like borrow one of someone else, also if you have a hdmi console try using a hdmi lead and see if the problem persists. just because you cant see any damage on your cable does not mean that it has not been stretched or broke within the insulation. :D

Did this solve your problem?
