You can always try the towel trick for a 4-5 day fix if needed. First you take all disks and cods out. EVEN WIRLESS ADAPTER! Next you plug the power cord back in. Wrap your xbox in 2 towels for about 25 min. By the time you come back to it. It will hvae already shut off because of overheating. This is good because it melts the video card back into place. After unwrapping the towels, let it coopl, and then you can play.

My xbox 360 shows no video or audio, and ive done all the "usual" things to try and fix it

Hi the problem you are having will lead to the red ring of death, you get the rrod when the gpu and cpu chip have over heated, as you get the sound and no picture or loss of both this says that the gpu is over heating and needs fixing.
you can try the following
1 switch the xbox off and leave it off for at least an hour
2 check all air vents are free from dust
3 make sure your not using the xbox on carpet or on top of anything like dvd or sky box
any of the above will cause it to over heat so make sure the xbox is not in a confined spaced and not on top of anything else

remove the leads from back of xbox and remove hard drive, plug all the leads back in making sure the leads are pushed in properly in the xbox and back of telly, then if you still have the problem try and borrow a friends video lead to try on your xbox.

if it still dont work then this suggests it has over heated and the damage is done so check if you have any warranty before you do anything with it, then if you have warranty take it back and get it exchanged or if your warranty it out you need to get the gpu and cpu heat sink changed and the x clamps removed and getting this done should get it working.

but you need to know that say out of every 10 i do work on only 2 wont work and would be classed as scrap, i repair these for about 25 quid plus parts which is about a fiver so your looking at roughly them prices to get it fixed, i work on the basis that if i dont fix the problem i wont charge for the work i just charge for the parts used.

let me know if you need further assistance

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I have no video and no audio

If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Obviously check your lead connections first as well.

Using a new hdmi lead but no sound for xbox 360

You still have to plug in the audio from the RCA cables (the red, white and yellow) Red and white are audio, yellow is video, i would just plug all 3 in.

No sound from my xbox 360

You cant have HDMI and the xomponent cables pluged in at the same time.
to get audio to your monitor you will need an xbox 360 audio adapter. You can find that here.

That comes with the HDMI and audio adapter.
You can probabaly find it seperate somewhere else.

I hope this helps.
