Xbox360 Powers on on video but audio, No red rings !

Looking for a fix on my older 360, it powers on with no videoout but audio. I have tried a new av cable and a Hd cable via myjoytech switch. I have had the 360 direct to tv but its still the same.
It does not display any red ring and powers up like my other 360 !!!
This 360 has no hdmi output on the rear, just to give you some sort of idea how old it is.
It must be out of warranty so not bothered, i will try anything.
Unmodded unit
Hitachi dvd.

It spins games up and sounds like its playing them 2.

Cheers Bond

    Spot on mate, i did this in the mean time, towel trick. It is working for now, lets just wait and see. I will never buy another one. The cost of these systems and the poor quality says it all Microsoft "just like there os" put together in a hurry and they patch it together to make it work. I love my Wii

    If you want a system that wont break down buy a Wii..

You have to do that Red Ring Fix. That will fix it. I see those come through the store a lot. The only problem with that is the red ring fix will only fix it temporarily. You might want to start saving up for a new one. Preferably a Falcon board.

My 360 has 3 rings the rings are red and it wont turn on


The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...

My Xbox 360 powers on normally I can hear the startup of my Xbox but there is no video. I have purchased new AV cables and ended up with the same result. I think that it could be my video card within the...

It may be your video output i.e. your TV. Check your console on another TV or projector. It shouldn't be your console's AV cable output if the audio works. (both audio and video come from that cable) I'm not completely certain you can solve it if it's your console, unless you send it in or pop up the case and mess with it (which is inadvisable). Give Xbox a call and they'll help you troubleshoot it- 1-800-4MYXBOX. If your still within your warranty years, and it needs to be sent in, you shouldn't be charged. Good Luck!

Red Light on Plug in connecter thing

Sounds like there is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply, try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord. Give it a minute then reconnect it all back, also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that suggests fault with your Xbox 360 power supply so will need to contact Xbox 360 customer support if its under warranty they should be able to sort it out for you. If out of warranty it might cost you for a new power supply!

Xbox360 has sound but blank screen

Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem

Are all four quadrants blinking red around the power button? This indicates that your Audio/Video cable is not plugged into the 360. Unplug it and plug it back in, or make sure it is securely plugged in.

Any other problems, contact Microsoft and 1-800-4-MY-XBOX and they will promptly fix it if it is still under warranty.

4 red lights is not necessarily a hardware failure or ring of death. The cause is usually from AV cable not being detected or not connected correctly. The Eraser trick is good for Error 0102 make sure which error number you have! Suggested Solutions: 1. Try to connect and disconnect the cable and see if it makes any changes on the red lights status. Note that not inserting the AV fully will cause the 4 lights error to appear. 2. Make sure the AV Cable and the connector in the Xbox console are proper and there is nothing banded or twisted. 3. Try to connect it to a different monitor maybe this is where the problem is. 4. Find the metal area where it plugs into the console this is called the AV Pack metal area. Use a dry, lint-free cloth and wipe it. Then try to plug the AV again. * If you still can't make it to work and you have your warranty just send it in. If you don't have warranty I suggest trying the live chat support on Fixya!
