SOURCE: HDTV Problem

there shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component Use the following colours into your tv:- Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs. Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings

SOURCE: XBOX 360 no video after playing HALO 3

I just got the xbox 360 for christmas 07. Two days later I bought guitar hero 3 and Halo 3.
Get this...the console is noisy and it scratched grooves into both disks and now the games are worthless...I took this piece of junk back to best buy and they were all out of the console for an exchange...so they gave me money back for the system and instructions in how to get the games replaced through microsoft....its a total nightmare because guitar hero 3 isn't published by microsoft so I have to goto redoctane.com to get a hint as to what I have to do....on top of all this, I can't get the games exchanged for new ones until I have a serial number...
Is Bill Gates serious ?

On the TV you should have a video, input or mode button. If you press that button while the 360 is on it should pickup the signal. You need to be in video mode instead of cable mode since you are using the red, yellow, white cables. Many TVs have a few video modes so press it wait a few seconds and try again if it does not work. Hope this helps:)

Phillips HDTV turns off when we turn the XBOX 360 on.


More than likely this is a trigger from the HDMI cable which can be disabled in the tv or xbox settings. To check, hook the xbox up to the tv with RCA cable that is supplied with the xbox and see does it turn the tv off it probably wont happen when connected like so.

XBOX 360 HDMI Problem green/purple screen


Try the following:
Reconnect your console and TV:
  1. Remove any devices placed between the console and the TV.
  2. Connect the HDMI cable from the back of your console directly into the HDMI port on your HDTV or monitor.
  3. If you're using an audio-only A/V cable, unplug this cable and then connect the HDMI cable from the back of the console directly into the HDMI port on your HDTV or monitor.Learn more about connecting your console to a TV.
Note If your HDTV has an image-enhancement feature or any kind of digital noise-reduction feature, turn this feature off. See your HDTV user manual for instructions.

My Xbox elite is just over a year old. I have no red rings. Problem is that all games played on the box are now in black & white. There is no colour on my tv screen. There is nothing wrong with the...


Check and recheck and triple check the av/hd cables. If you want to help isolate, try hooking up your xbox 360 to another tv and doesn't matter if it is hdtv or standard to test out. That method will give your answer quick to help isolate the problem. If you have hdtv make sure your adapter has the switch set for hdtv and not standard and then go in the xbox 360 dashboard system settings and see if it shows up for display. Good luck!!!

Dont know where to plug the cables in on my tv


Depending on how old the TV is, you may have to resort to using the composite plugs (red, white, yellow) plugs instead of the HDMI or component plugs as used with newer hdtv's. Your XBOX should have these cords or adapters available within the packaging. Just double check that you have these in the back of your TV.

How to hook up a XBOX 360 to an HDTV


You can go to Wal-Mart or any major electronics store and buy a splitter/selecter for your different devices.

Basically, the unit will allow you to connect a few input devices (xbox, ps3, whatever) into one HD connection on an HDTV. You will be able to select which device uses the HD connection to the tv through a switch.

I hope you find the item :-) A Competent electronics salesman should be able to help you out just fine!

Check your AV cables. Make sure all the wires are plugged in and secure. Make sure the switch on your AV adapter is turned to TV, or HDTV, depending on which tv you have. If it still doesnt work, contact xbox customer support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX
