Xbox 360 no picture but sound, works on another HDTV
We bought a new HDTV from Sanyo. The XBOX 360 is connected with the component cables, I hear the sound of the XBOX, I do not get "NO SIGNAL" from the TV, it is just black. when I put in a DVD the DVD will play. After watching the DVD, I press the button to get back to the Xbox picture it will show but as soon as I click go back to Dashbord, the screen gets black. Why? What is wrong?

How is your xbox connected to the tv?
If its connected with hdmi cable. Unhook it from xbox and plug it into the back of the cable box. If nothing happens then try switching the tv input with the tv remote. Should have several different inputs. Hdmi,video,component,etc...
Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360
Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.
Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."
Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on
Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.
Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.
Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.
Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.
Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.
Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.
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
already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.
Have you looked at the side of the cable and made sure that the switch
is set correctly? you have to select either HDTV of AV I believe. If
that isn't the problem, try hooking it up through a different input on
your television. I don't think it's your xbox because with any hardware failure, you would get the RRoD (red ring of death). I would definitely troubleshoot the TV. Try to hook up a regular DVD player in the input that your xbox is in and see if it works.
