I imagine you have bought the new slim Xbox 360? Did you use a HDMI cable to connect it to your TV or did you use the standard cable? If you used a standard AV cable ensure that you connected the red and white cables into the same AV input as the yellow video cable.
*Solution for AV Cable*
Check to make sure the cable is fully plugged into the port. Having it even just slightly out of the socket will render no video. If this doesn't work, try plugging it into a different port on your television to make sure the port isn't bad. If you still have no video - the video part of the cable could be bad and you might need a new cable.
Also make sure that if your cable has BOTH component and AV connections available that the switch at the end of the cable near the Xbox is set to "TV" as opposed to "HDTV"
*Solution for Component Cable*
Also check to make sure that all the video connections are fully plugged in. If even one of them isn't plugged in fully, it could render no video. Also make sure that you have them properly plugged in to the right color. If you're just quickly connecting it to the back of the TV without proper lighting, it can be easy to confuse the blue and green connections.
When using component, make sure that the switch at the end of the cable near the Xbox is set to "HDTV" as opposed to "TV".
1. there are two kinds of connection 2. one u can connect through av cable which is baciscally given by xbox 2. u can also connect through hdmi cable this can be bought seperate 3. also through xbox360 vga cable (can be bought seperately) with this u can connect to lcd moniters
sometimes it is because of ur tv also, also tv dont support ntsc version xbox 360 and vise versa. hope u got the answer
In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,
For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports
If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio
to start off,what type of cable are you using??
since you've already tried using 2diff TVs,basically its with the console
try using a different AV CABLES, if it still doesnt work,try calling xbox support hotline for possible replacement of your cable or for processing a repair for the xbox if necessary..
since you just bought your console,try going back to the store where you bought it and have it replaced, because for the repalcement of the cable if you call xbox support,it will take 8-12business days for toureceive it and 2-3weeks for the turn around time of the repair for the xbox.
1. make sure that the AV cable is not loose or incorrectly seated in both the Xbox 360 console and the TV 2. make sure that you have the correct AV cable for your TV, to verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices 3. if you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings because you may lose the picture 4. make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or NTSC) Example: - if your Xbox 360 console is an NTSC console, make sure that your TV supports NTSC - if your Xbox 360 console is a PAL console, set your PAL settings to PAL 60 - if your TV has a type of picture compensation enabled, disable it 5. reset your Xbox 360 console - Remove any discs from the disc tray - Turn off the console - Turn on the console - As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time - The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. 6. Do not take your Xbox 360 console or its accessories to your retailer for repair or for service unless an Xbox Customer Support representative asks you to do this
where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.
