Can't play minecraft!!

I bought minecraft about a week ago and now everytime I press "play game" the screen turns dim, the music stops completely and I'll try to play my world and the screen is still dim and I can't turn my head at all. I've talked to other people about this and they had no problem with this at all. I can't even find anything to do with this problem on the Internet. I have no idea what to do. I have an HDTV that is compatible with minecraft and I've redownloaded this game about 3 or 4 times trying to get this to work but no luck. Will somebody please help me with this problem or at least tell me how to get a refund (If possible).

I am having the same problem. Have been playing for several days without issue. About half-way through today, I take a break (save game and exit), then come back to resume and have the exact same symptoms you described. I hit PLAY, and the screen darkens\dims...I select my saved game, and it is to dark\dim to see anything...I can see just enough to tell that I am unable to pivot (right analog stick has no response), I can only walk back and forth with left stick.

Please enlighten me on the steps you took that led to,"Nevermind, I got it." post.

My friend had the same issue - It's worth trying to clearing the cache of the console before deleting it and then downloading it again :)

I ended up figuring it out also. For some reason, every one of the settings in the Options menu flattened to 0. So the darkness was caused by the Gamma being flattened out, and the inability to Look\Pivot was because the Sensitivity flattened out also. The Music and Sound were also at 0. I reset everything, and all appears to be well.

I am not sure what caused every setting to zero out. I certainly didn't do it manually, I didn't even know it had happened--my only symptoms were the effects of the settings being zero.

Hope that helps someone...it took me a bit to figure it out. I didn't think to check the obvious, because I knew had even been in the Settings menu, so I wouldn't have expected that they had changed.

This is awesome!   My son had this problem and hasn't been able to play the some time now.   He created a dummy account just so he could get his minecraft fix.   I'm glad someone figured this out so he can go back to his account and play his maps!
