Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

No display signal thru tv

I've only had my xbox 360 since Feb 08. It has been treated with kid gloves. When I turn the unit on all looks normal. The only picture I get on my TV are small dots and lines. I thought maybe the cable was bad, however my friend brought the cable from his 360 and the problem was the same. Yes, we checked the HD switch on the cable. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Sean

Proscan tv

Check that you're on the correct input and the Xbox 360 is sending the correct signal (be it 720 or 1080).

I have an xbox 360, but i have a ps3 connect to the tv via hdmi. i swapped the hdmi cable to the xbox and powered on. i had all the cables in the correct position, the correct av selected on the tv, but...

Have you tried disconnecting the HDMI cable from both the TV and the console and then trying to reconnect?

Y+RT does not reset controllers for the Xbox 360, so not sure what you are attempting there?

What type of TV do you have? It appears the issue is with either your cable or the TV seeing that you are having the same issue with both your PS3 and Xbox 360.

I still think your first step should be to disconnect all cables from both ends and reconnect. (with poer off of all sytems of course) If this doesn't solve your issue then submit further information on your setup such as TV make and model and I can research other possibilities.

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen

If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.

YPbPr inputs not working

Tacz, What video input# on the back of the TV is your component video?? Are you sure the TV is set to look at that video input#??? You may be looking at one of the composite video inputs as far as the TV is concerned and with nothing plugged in to that input the TV would naturally give the error message you indicated. Let me know.. Bill
