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~*

If you have the AV cable that has the switch on the Xbox end, make sure that it's in the correct setting. Your cable could have shorted out if this does not work.

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.

Xbox switches on ok but no sound or vision output to tv?


If there are no red flashing lights around the power button, check your cables. The xbox doesn't like to be turned on without the A/V cable plugged in, so it might have come loose from the TV. I'd check the connecting point to the TV, and the TV settings (make sure it is set to the xbox input, and not, say, a DVD/cable box input)

The GPU (graphics chip) has been known to go bad quite easily on the xbox, but I wouldn't want to tackle repairing that unless you see the red lights blinking (which is a sure indicator that it needs to be repaired)

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...

My xbox 360 turns on fine but it won't show on my tv


Im presuming you have check all the cables settings...
and still just audio , It requires that the G.P.U. be Preheated
and seated ( clamp down) and then Burn in A.K.A. x clamp mod.
the dead video problem needs a little more then the regular
x clamp mod , so make sure who ever dose it has a good
success rate .

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.

HDTV Problem


there shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component Use the following colours into your tv:- Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs. Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings
