Once you put the game in... just wait patiently... if the game doesn't load up within a minute, then something is definitely wrong with your xbox. back to the old adage.. "you get what you pay for" ... good luck... i really hope that it works.

Your problem is in the TV. I'm not familiar with your TV, but you should look for an option to turn it to normal or to try and scan for channels with xbox plugged in and running. I'm pretty sure that if you get HDMI cable, your problem should be solved.

I just bought a wii and I'm hooking it up to an older model tv. the inputs are on the front and there is only one audio input and one video input. I plug in the red cable in audio and I hear the music...

The yellow cable needs to go to video.The red and white are left and right speakers or stereo.Usually there is a yellow for video,the cable doesnt have to be yellow, another red or white will work.It just needs to be in the video jack or output.

You need one more cable for video.Also be sure your tv is set to the correct input for the wii to work.Possibly it may need to be on channel 3 or 4. Or if the tv is newer try component or any input available in the tvs setup menu.

I've plugged in the red, white, and yellow cables to my TV, and I'm getting sound but no picture. I've plugged in the cables the same way I successfully do for my Wii, but still get no picture. PLEASE...

There is probably a short in your av jacks somewhere, try going to a pawn shop or resale shop and getting some used av jacks off of another N64.

How to join xbox 360 to new tv

The AV cable you are using is an older model known as "Composite". You need a newer AV cable known as "Component". These should be available at a local video game store, such as Gamestop.

I have sound but no video on my xbox 360. i got this as a gift about a month ago. it was bought at a pawn shop. it worked fine till today. there is no red light or anything like that, just no picture.

This i have seen before and it tells me the machines is displaying the signs of lead free solder failure (85%sure). you could strip the machine down and replacing the x-clamps at the same time do the heatgun fix if you dont have access to an IR oven.
To me it will just get worse and will definately need the x-clamps replacing AND the solder re-seating.

hope that helps in some way

Just bought an XBox at the Pawn shop. Have it hooked up to an old TV (no plug in available for the red jack), can go through menus, etc. But not sure how to access the game I have in the console.

sorry but I think i have some bad news... You said you have the game in the console so it should automaticly load. If it dosnt you should try for a refund because the lens is messed up and cant read discs.
