I actually had the exact same problem! What a pain!
What actually ended up being the problem was, where you connect the audio/video cable to the xbox, had become disconnected from the mother board inside the xbox. I had insurance on it, so I couldn't tell you exactly how much it would be to replace. But, when I was talking the person who repaired it, they did tell me that there would be no possible way to get audio or video without it being fixed.
Hope It helps~*

How do you get your xbox 360 to play, on a 65'' mitubishi projection tv,its connected but nothing comes on screen when i put a movie in just a blank screen and no sound,if i'm on a channel,the channel...


Hello

The Xbox 360 connects to a TV using either

- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio

- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)

- HDMI

So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.

Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).

Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.

This should make the Xbox work.

When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.

When I play a gane the sides of the screen cut off


If you have a widescreen TV, your resolution is likely the cause of this. See if your TV has a resolution setting in its menu. Don't worry if it doesn't, some TV's only have one default resolution.

Check what type of cable you are using to connect to the TV. If you are using composite cables (red, white, and yellow) and you have a flatscreen/HDTV, you should switch to component or HDMI cables. (Your Xbox may have came with component cables. They are the red, green, and blue ones, if it did and you aren't using them, use them.)

Once you're using component or HDMI, the problem should be solved. If it is not, change the resolution on the Xbox. To do this, go to System Settings > Console Settings > Display and mess around with the settings in that to find out what works for your TV.

How do i hook my XBOX-360 up to this tv and get 1080i resolution? Thanks, Mike


You should be able to get 1080i with the Input/DVI port or the component video in ports of the TV. I believe the easiest option will be to set the XBox A/V switch to HDTV and use a component video cable (red, green, blue) from the XBox component out to the TV Component In. (with the audio out going to your TV or speaker system). Turn on the X-box and the My Xbox > System Settings. Then Console Settings > Display and chose the 1080i.

Set the TV Net Command (remote) and the Device settings for the input jack in use (component 1/2). Adjust the A/V menu for the Display before playing long.

Wen you change inputs, you will see a status screen for the settings for the TV input.

I hope this helps.

Dose not show on screen anymore. son said he was asked to change something. he did. cant play anymore.Must be some setting that was changed. Cant get it to show on T.V. TV says unsupported format. HELP


Not sure what you are talking about, this is a bit vague..... try this, on the back of the xbox there is a switch on the plug that goes to the TV, if the TV is not HI-DEF and you are using just the red + white + yellow plugs, then switch to TV, if your using the red + white + blue + green + red then switch to HDTV.
Your Son could have also switched a setting on the dashboard to use HI-DEF, if he did, maybe switching back the TV mode on the TV out plug may correct the issue.
Kids love to play with things! lol...

DVD's not playing in color


sounds like the problem is the TV . your tv have to different inputs , COMPONENT is for the separate color , BLUE , RED , GREEN this is for better video quality , if your DVD doesnt have this OUTPUT feature , then maybe the YELLOW (VIDEO) , RED & WHITE ( AUDIO ) thats coming out from your DVD player is connected to the COMPONENT input of your TV , GETTING the B&W effect. it should be connected to the VIDEO input of your TV ( yellow , red , white ) hope this is helpful AJ

Hello my name is steve


1. Make sure the Cable is properly connected to the back of the Xbox.

2. Make sure the Cble is properly connected to the inputs on the TV (Color coded if using component or composite cables).

3. Look on the large part of the cable where it plugs into the Xbox. There is a switch with two settings: HDTV and TV. If using the component cables (Green, Blue, Red + White Red), turn the switch to HDTV. If using the composite cables (Yellow, White, Red), switch it to TV.

4. If the problem persists, contact Microsoft at 800 4MY - XBOX . It's a toll free number but it isn't 24 hour.
