First check the cable connections, unplug and replug them in. Next check the end of the video cable that plugs into the 360 and make sure the switch is set for your type of TV. It sounds like that may be your problem.
However if it is not even loading past the boot "logo" and your are getting multicolored boxes/"kaleidoscope" effect, then your console is bricked.
Contact microsoft support @ 1-800-4MY-XBOX for an RMA before the warranty runs out.

Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.

Try using another TV. If you don't get the same problem then it's the TV and not the PS3. You might also want to try changing the display settings so that you're using the correct outputs.

Cannot turn on


most of the time this is caused from slight water damage, or the top screen isn't functioning.
I have seen many of the top screen ribbon cabled that have sent an electric arc across 2 of the pins on the connector which causes the ribbon cable to burn out the connection on those pins resulting in an improper circuit and will flash the screen and shut off. I have repaired many units and would be happy to take a look at yours.
Thanks,

No picture and no sound, but everything is still connected and running!


how old is this xbox360?? did you buy it new or used??

if it new i would return it to the store where youve bought it.

if its old, then perhap it overheating. trying putting a fan on it or blowing some compressed air in the holes where the fans are usually by the power plug.

if the cpu over heats you'll likely to have trouble and problems
