This is a very common and easy to fix problem. What you need to is turn your TV on so regular TV is showing (while your Wii is on). Then, if you have kind of an "old-school" TV, there should be a button that says "Select", and under the Select button, there should be two options - "DVD" and "TV/VCR." Push that button either once or twice until you see the Nintendo start screen. If you have a more upgraded TV, there should be a button either on your TV or on the remote that says "source." Press that button, and you should see the Nintendo start screen. Hope this helped!!
Try unplugging all the cables. Let it rest for a couple of minutes. Then plug everything in and see what happens. Common problems with the xbox is overheating, RROD, corrupted video, dotted lines accross the screen.
Try contacting the store where it was bought. See if they can replace it for you. Some places have 90 days warranty.
If that doesnt work then you need to contact microsoft and fill out a repair order. I myself had 3 RRODs and they were all fixed in less than 5 days, sending it in to Microsoft.
Their site is: https://myservice.xbox.com/en-us/Pages/Welcome.aspx
Follow the instructions and if needed give them a call.
Dont feel bad, more than half of all xboxes sold have had this issue come up. I myself had it happen 3 times with two different Xboxes. 1 original and 1 elite.
presign of the rrod its the gpu overheating since two red lights apply to cpu only when the gpu overheats it causes system crash on the screen you can do two things replace the thermal paste or try keeping the inside cooler but it will eventully rrod but may stop it for many months or years right know i have a moded intercooler and a high fan pointed at it now the xbox puts out warm air at the most fixed my screen freezing and has worked for about half a year without freezing you can also call microsoft or look how to mod the x clamps that causes the system crashes
The issue you are having is common. No video is a form of rrod that actually never rrod's. The only fix for these is the xclamp fix. www.llamma.com or www.xbox-scene.com can show you how to do this fix. now the "fix" only fixes your system for a few months maybe a year. The problem will occur again or it will rrod later. when i get these I use the heatgun on the chips the correct way (you'll find a tut on xbox-scene) than do the xclamp fix. I also do a 12v mod to the fans which will make it louder but it will also help you box last longer. Look at it this way - you will eventually need to purchase a new system so fix it for now and save up to buy a new one. stay away from buying refurbished units - you'll get burned.
Is this your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV or VCR? If so, please click here to review our step-by-step connection guide. Our experience shows that the majority of these issues can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.
If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank white or blank dark screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair options.
