XBox 360 HD-AV male prong broke off into female component port

We had the male part of the green video output of the xbox 360 HD-AV component break off into the female port for the same on the back of our Vizio HD TV. It is too far up in there to get out with a pair of tweezers. We connected a new component cable and it didn't work so we are wondering if we need to have the broken off prong removed and if it can be done ourselves or if the TV needs to be taken apart in order to have that whole input cap replaced.

  • Anonymous Mar 02, 2009

    I have a panasonic tv that last night I was trying to move w/o disconnecting the cables, and my male component broke off also inside of the female one and it's also way too small to try and get out w/ a pair of tweezers we bought this flat screen from best buy, so I'm trying to give them a call, when or if I find out what to do, if we can get a replacement I'll write back on here and let ya'll know! This sucks! I guess this is what I get for not just disconnecting the simple wires instead you know? Apparently I have to do everything the hard way lol! Take care!

    im having the same exact problem, and now im out of money for a new tv, so im kinda screwed. mine was a regular av cable though.

  • Anonymous Apr 26, 2009

    actually, i fixed it now. i was the one who posted earlier today. what i did to fix the blue and pink appearance of my tv was to actually to push in the prong a little more. theres no chance that it would come out for me, so i pushed it in a little, and then plugged in the dvd in part of the component into my tv. if that works 4 u, then go and buy a new component cable, but only if u hav more than 1 set of female ports, and plug it in. hope it helps!

SOURCE: Our 42" Vizio will not display/play sounds when

Hello

One board takes in the HDMI as well as the other signals. Sometimes part of the board breaks and that is what sounds like has happend in your case. This is a fairly common problem and most people tend to just live with it. Others sell thier tv and a few find the number of thier board to see if one is available on ebay or shopjimmy. If you are comfortable with electronics the board is not hard to replace.

Im sorry your HDMI broke....

I hope this helps

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.

XBOX 360 composite output works fine. Component


You say the component video is no good? Well this usually happens when it is wired up incorrectly, Ensure you have the right colors in the right jacks at each end, it is real easy to get mixed up... make sure Red goes to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to green, all alongside each other, NO ALSO using Component you MUST also run 2 more cables for the Audio, they are Red & White NOT the Red from the "Other" Video input, BUT the AV Red & White jacks, beside each other on the units. So all in all there are 5 cables taking the Video, 3 R, G, B. + The Audio, R & W.

Which wires doi use to connect up my xbox with my


In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,

For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports

If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio

Not getting true surround sound


The only way to get Dolby 5.1 audio out of the Xbox will be via fiber optic cable from the Xbox to a Dolby Digital amplifier - which will output a decoded 5.1 signal to a 6 channel amplifier and 5 speakers and one sub-woofer. I doubt the Logitech speaker system has a Dolby 5.1 decoder built in with the amplifier for under $100, but I can't say for sure. If the Logitech has a an optical (or TOSLink) input, connect it to the Xbox and follow the instructions below.

To configure your audio settings, follow these steps:
  1. Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
  2. In the System section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Console Settings.
  3. In the Console Settings area, select Audio.
  4. In the Audio Settings area, configure settings for analog output or digital output:
    • Analog output settings:
      • Dolby Pro Logic II: Select this setting for stereo systems or Dolby Pro Logic II-compatible systems.
      • Mono: Select this setting for systems that do not support stereo output. Note If you have connected to Xbox LIVE and downloaded any AutoUpdates, the Mono option will not be available.
    • Digital output settings:
      • Digital Stereo: Select this setting to use digital stereo output.
      • Dolby Digital 5.1: Select this setting to use Dolby Digital output.
      • Enable WMA Pro: Select this setting to enable WMA Pro pass-through if your receiver supports the WMA Pro format.
Note You must use one of the following cables to support digital output:
  • Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable
  • VGA HD AV cable
  • S-video AV cable
  • Advanced SCART AV cable
  • Japanese HDAV D-connector AV cable

My xbox 360 turns on fine but it won't show on my tv


Im presuming you have check all the cables settings...
and still just audio , It requires that the G.P.U. be Preheated
and seated ( clamp down) and then Burn in A.K.A. x clamp mod.
the dead video problem needs a little more then the regular
x clamp mod , so make sure who ever dose it has a good
success rate .

The main reason why its acting that way its possible that the AV PORT is faulty.

360 help


This is a picture of the HD AV cable:

On the back of the part which connects to the 360, there's an optical output.

If you then get one of these leads:

It should send the 5.1 digital audio from your Xbox to your HD. I'm sure your TV should have an optical input on it somewhere!

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

Connections


What the two do is give the audio, you need a 'Y' phono (2 female to male connector adapter) and a female- female adapter to suit your speaker connector and the male end on the adapter so that you can plug in your two cables and the plug in the outlet your pc speakers plug, it will cost about £5 or $10 wherever you are. I have done it and its worth it for the picture quality. see below http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=phono%20adaptors&source=15&SD=Y
