Thats the problem sometimes the Xbox360 can change that by itself but in your case i think your best bet is changing it back with your friends HDTV. Also i would try hooking up the cables one more time on your tv but make sure you turn on your xbox after all the cables are connected. But its nothing major its a really easy fix. good luck and let me know if you still have the problem.

XBOX NOW PLAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE WITH OLDER TV DID WORK FINE AND DOES ON NEW HDTV ALL CABLES GOOD NOT SURE WHAT TO DO TO GET COLOR BACK


There is a switch that changes the video cable from SD( for use with older TV's without high definition connectivity) to HD (used for newer HD TV's with high definition.

If your older television is using a composite (yellow) connection for video, make sure the switch is in the SD position and NOT hd.

I hv an old style xbox 360 n i bought a vga hd cable.is it automatic 1080p


It depends on your monitor or tv's native resolution,
if your tv/ monitor is 1080p then you should be able to get 1080p in the xbox settings from the dashboard.
Also, any xbox 360 should display 1080p.
Hope it helped.

Either the cable you are using is no good, or there is an issue with the internal video subsystem. Try changing cables, and if possible, try a different input on your display. If the issue still exists then you may have an internal issue. The only way to diagnose this is to have your local Xbox repair center diagnose it unless you have the tools and experience to do it yourself. Certain parts of the subsystem can be replaced, but for the most part the entire system is replaced.

The picture doesnt show but I hear the sound.


Don't worry the HD feed from the xbox 360 has a gain limiter
So the chances are more likely that either your Friends xbox has
the HD setting off or the TV has defaulted to standard video in.
If you get a black screen or a mesage that says no single .
But if your getting strange color on your set with the HD on
then we need to investigate this " Microsoft is liable!" for
damages caused by their console. Ill look in to this and
follow up. The xbox has broken connection under the poorly
soldered G.P.U. and will need to be re-flowed to the main
board to corrects this problem but that's a secondary priority
right now.

I'll check this out for you and follow up.

did you try swapping hard drives with your friends HD to see if the game will play on your console with his HD installed on your xbox that will help determine if its your HD or some other problem at fault

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting


Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?
