Ive the oposit problem i want to play hitman which is 50hz game but im using a hdmi cable and it isnt possible to run it in 50hz , 60hz only i think so if you get the new hdmi cables it should fix your problem (if you have a hdmi port you should be using it anyway for the best picture)

I have one of the brand new xbox 360s i have a problem.. on some xbox360 games it dont play on pal 50 only pal 60 but its black and white


Does the new Xbox 360s have a HD / TV switch on the av plug like the old model did? If so you might have it in wrong position. I think you can only alter the Pal settings when this switch is set to TV. If old tv it may not work in Pal 50 at all only Pal 60.

My xbox 360 is playing in black and white


Which TV Output do you have, mabye when you changed that PAL setting you screwed it up, and it made it black and white. If its an HD Screen make sure your switches and all of your plugs are plugged in.

Standard definition TVs loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If you connect your Xbox 360 console to a standard definition TV, follow these steps to set the Xbox 360 display settings to PAL 60 Hz:
  1. Turn on the Xbox 360 console.
  2. In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button.
  3. Select Console Settings, and then press the A button.
  4. Select Display, and then press the A button.
  5. Select PAL settings, and then press the A button.
  6. Select PAL-60, and then press the A button.
  7. When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
Note Some older TVs do not support PAL 60 Hz. If you do not know whether your TV supports PAL 60 Hz, contact the manufacturer of your TV or see the owner's manual.

Xbox 360 Console, Faulty, NO DISPLAY!!??


What do you mean, no display? Is is game-related display issues? Have you checked the AV cable connection? Or is it about the settings? Is this the first time that you are going to connect your xbox console?

To determine whether the display issues are specific to a particular game, try playing a different game to see whether the same symptom occurs. Reminder, some Xbox original games that were released for the original Xbox console may show some display issues when you play them on the Xbox 360 console.

Next, make sure that AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV. To verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, you can disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices. Note: If you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings. If you try to set HDTV settings, you may lose the picture.

You might also want to check your TV's settings because some display issues can be caused by how the TV is set up. To make sure that this is not the case, please check your TV's settings.

In your TV's settings, you should check the following:
- Make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or 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
- If your TV's settings are correct, you may want to try using a different TV, if you have one available. Try connecting your Xbox 360 console to another TV to see whether the same display issues occur

Next, reset your Xbox 360 console. To reset the display settings to the default settings, follow these steps:
1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
2. Turn off the console.
3. Turn on the console.
4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time.

Hi,

You can't use the HD-DVD drive to play games. Your best bet is to phone Microsoft and arrange to have the console repaired. If your console is out of warrenty it is possible to replace the drive yourself.

Thanks/
