1. Make sure the Cable is properly connected to the back of the Xbox.

2. Make sure the Cble is properly connected to the inputs on the TV (Color coded if using component or composite cables).

3. Look on the large part of the cable where it plugs into the Xbox. There is a switch with two settings: HDTV and TV. If using the component cables (Green, Blue, Red + White Red), turn the switch to HDTV. If using the composite cables (Yellow, White, Red), switch it to TV.

4. If the problem persists, contact Microsoft at 800 4MY - XBOX . It's a toll free number but it isn't 24 hour.

Well when I turn on my xbox 360 the third part flashes red.


hello.
CAUSE The three flashing red lights may indicate that your Xbox 360 console has experienced a hardware failure. Please read the letter that discusses warranty changes for three flashing red light hardware failures. 

MORE INFORMATION 

If you suspect that you are experiencing this issue, you can submit a console-repair request online. However, before you submit your request, we ask that you first try the following two steps to verify that you are indeed experiencing this issue: 

1. When you turn on the console, examine the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply light is not green, please follow the steps that are listed in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: 

906101 Xbox 360: The power supply light is red 906102 Xbox 360: The power supply light is orange 906103 Xbox 360: The power supply light is not illuminated 

2. Turn off the console. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the console again to see whether the symptom occurs again. If your console continues to display the three flashing red lights, your console may have to be repaired. For information about how to start the repair process online, please visit http://www.xbox.com/support, and then click Console Repair in the upper-right section of the Web page. 

Note: The online console repair service is currently not available in all countries or regions. 

If you would rather contact Xbox Customer Support directly, please visit http://www.xbox.com/support/contact for information about how to do this.

How to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet


Hello,

In this guide I will go over how to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet either via wired or wireless connection.

Wireless Connection

*For a wireless connection you need a wireless access point(router) and either a Xbox with built in wifi adapter or purchase a xbox wireless adapter*

-Turn on your xbox and go to "My Xbox" then go to "System Settings"
-Select "Network Settings"
-Select the name of your wireless network.
If you do not see your network, select "Advanced options" then select "Specify unlisted Network" then enter your network name.
-
Enter your wireless network security key. It may prompt you to update your console, select yes.

Wired Connection

*For a wired connection you need to use an Ethernet cable and plug one end into the back of your xbox and the other end into your router or cable modem.*

-Turn on your xbox and go to "My Xbox" then go to "System Settings"
-Select "Network Settings"
-Select "Test Xbox Live Connection", afterwards it may prompt you to update your console, select yes.

Now, you are connected to the internet and can enjoy xbox live.

Xbox 360 audio video problem


has it been flashed with xtreme firmware?

check the scart cable and make sure the switch is on the right setting (tv/hd)

when it was working did you put a game in and was you asked to update? if so you could have got a bad update.

if you have a hard drive detach it and then try turning it on.

if none of these work write a reply in this section and i'll get back to you.

please rate my solution and how it helped you
