Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

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?

    I figured it out. The setting on the XBOX for Display was set for the old TV to 1080p and the new tv didnt catch it. It is receiving at 1080i. I had to switch it the AV cable to TV and then go to settings and change it to 1080i and then switch the AV cable back to HDTV.

    :-D

    I am trying to move my system from an HD TV to a TV that is not HD. I'm getting sound but no picture. I tried changing the HDTV settings in display to 1080i and it still didn't work on my non HD TV. Does anyone know what I can do? I guess it started when I moved my system from my TV to my parents HDTV.

How do I hook up Xbox 360 to the HDTV


Step 1:

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360


Step 2:

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.



Step 3:

Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."



Step 4:

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


Step 5:

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.



Step 6:

Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.



Step 7:

Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.



Step 8:

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.



Step 9:

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.



Step 10:

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.

Picture will not show


You might want to try the following:

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

Plays dvds on xbox 360 fine, but no picture for games/dashboard


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.

Sound with no picture


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.

Emerson LCD HDTV 19 inch won't connect to Xbox 360


Im not an expert on the 360s, but I believe there is a switch or option on them to play them in HD feed. They must be set to play HD as far as I understand.
