Put the Hd video cable in the slot and put the regular audio cables in their slot. It should work then.

Sound doesn't work while playing a game or movie from Xbox 360. It used to work - then it just stopped while a movie was playing. now games and movies won't play sound. Cables are good, sound sytem is...


You can figure out real quick through isolution what the problem is and who to point the finger at. Go ahead and unplug your xbox 360 system and hook it up to another tv. It doesn't have to be hdmi, just a standard one can work fine so you can plug the yellow video, and two white/red audio cables in to test. If that works then you need to look at the ports on your tv or sound system as the source problem. Check the settings...it doesn't hurt to reset them and reconfigure. Also check the xbox system settings in the Dashboard and verify. That will get the ball rolling and get your solution asap. Good luck!!!

Xbox works fine but wont show up on the tv, sound is coming out but no video.


For, first time u should the following
play a movie using the Media Player for Xbox 360, a Windows firewall warning will appear
Note: This is due to the Xbox 360 playing the movies over the network.
Simply click the "Unblock" button on the window that appears (see below) and the
movie will play fine, i think so. You only have to cancel this warning once.

My xbox will not play regular movies or games. it


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Once the heat stops the games start.

If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Xbox 360 will play movies but not games


you cannot just replace the old dvd drive with a new one, you need to take the key from the old drive and then place it onto the new drive so it will work. all xbox 360 drives have a security key. If you still have your old drive then you may be ok and it may be that a technician can do the work for you. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

My 360 has Video but no Sound.


Was the sound ever working in HD mode? And if not, then plug you red and white RCA jacks into their normal slots. You can always recheck your settings in the 360 dashboard, it in the slice all the way to the right.

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.
