Xbox360 video issue, black levels look wrong, see pictures for what I'm talking about. Need HELP!

Hi guys,

A few months ago I noticed that the contrast (like graphical contrast of black levels) in games like Mass Effect 3, Skyrim (at night) and more recently GTAV (at night) are all messed up.  I've tried adjusting the contrast in the Xbox360 system settings and it doesn't help.  I'm trying to figure out if this might be a hardware or software problem.  Any assistance would be awesome!

Please follow the links to see the photos that illustrate what I'm talking about.  The photos are of Mass Effect 3's Palaven mission.  The top of Palaven has almost a black line through it, I assume this is where darker blacks should be kicking in, instead it looks lighter and kind of flashes when moving.  Again, this is happening on other games as well when the setting is at night or darker (i.e. a cave or tunnel).

Thanks for responding.  I failed to mention in the original post that this problem happens with both HDMI and Component cables.  I've also tried several HDMI cables.
