My xbox 360 starts up fine and you can hear the audio but there is nothing on the screen. It started at first with just distorted color, now there is no picture. I tried new plugs and that did't fix it. Can you help??

Re: xbox360 has sound but blank screen
Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing
device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video
problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty
only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to
get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to
Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your
favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem

If you hear sound but no picture then your graphic chip has got separated from your motherboard, this is not a simple fix. receommend you to look for a local repair shop that can handle game console repairs or send it to xbox.com
this is the start of the E74 error usually (audio no video error it starts off as)
and usually need the board fixed, do to this you
need to take the xbox360 apart then reflow the board (or have it done for you) there is a
great 6part video guide on YouTube to view for free. 6 videos from the same
fellow, each video is a few mins long, and goes over everything for you.

used the same method to fix over 450 Xbox360 units with no problems at all,
barring a few (but i have done nearly 500 so you expect a few problems along
the way), you just need a few things though like a heat gun and some thermal
paste. sounds hard, but it's very easy once you start! Hope this
helps in some way.
well it seems that your xbox is well and truely broken. contact microsoft and tell them whats happened and if you have done nothing wrong to cause your 360 to break then they will repair/ replace your xbox for free
