You say the component video is no good? Well this usually happens when it is wired up incorrectly, Ensure you have the right colors in the right jacks at each end, it is real easy to get mixed up... make sure Red goes to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to green, all alongside each other, NO ALSO using Component you MUST also run 2 more cables for the Audio, they are Red & White NOT the Red from the "Other" Video input, BUT the AV Red & White jacks, beside each other on the units. So all in all there are 5 cables taking the Video, 3 R, G, B. + The Audio, R & W.
Without opening up the console itself, there is nothing you can do. By opening up the console, you will void the warranty also, so unless you are trained in console repair, this is ill-advised. If you contact Microsoft directly, they are usually very helpful with repairing or replacing faulty units up to around 3 years old. Their details can be found on their website or in your manual.
Well the main solution that you're going to get from Microsoft is to unplug everything from your console and your TV and then wait a couple minutes and plug it back in while everything is off. If the problem still persists, instead of buying a new 360, try borrowing a friend's AV cable and see if that works. Try not to unplug or replug anything while the console or TV is still on. Or it could just possibly be all of the jostling around in your suitcase and nothing has come loose enough to stop working until now. Sorry I can't be more helpful, these are just some ideas.
Same problem and i'm gonna try and find the scart plug that came with the xbox and if that doesn't work , get a new xbox 360 from HMV. By the way, HMV are really good, my xbox has broke twice now and they've gave me 2 new ones no problem. Microsoft need to get it together though!
