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...


Hello
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.

Xbox Dashboard on high definition TV


With the latest update to the Xbox Dashboard available from Xbox Live®, you can change the default display mode of the Xbox Dashboard from 480i to 480p. Connect your console to the component inputs of a 480p-capable TV using an Xbox High Definition AV Pack toview the Xbox Dashboard in high definition. To get the latest Xbox Dashboard Using a Broadband connection and the Ethernet connector on the back of the console, connect your Xbox to the Xbox Live servers. When you do so, the latest version of Xbox Live, including the Xbox Dashboard, automatically downloads. You do not need to subscribe to Xbox Live for this update to automatically download to your Xbox. But if you don't have an Xbox Live account, get one! To set the Xbox Dashboard to 480p Connect your Xbox console to the component inputs of a TV that supports 480p with an Xbox High Definition AV Pack. Start the Xbox console without a disc in the tray to run the Xbox Dashboard. Note If your Xbox console takes you to the Xbox Livearea rather than the Xbox Dashboard main menu, press the B button on the Xbox controller twiceto return to the Xbox Dashboard main menu. From the main menu of the Xbox Dashboard, select Settings. Fromthe Settings menu, select Video. Fromthe Video menu, select 480p. Select Yes to confirm that your TV supports 480p. Pull and hold both the left and right triggers. While holding the triggers, click (press in) the left and right thumbsticks. After a brief blank screen, the Xbox Dashboard will display in 480p. If you want to return to 480i, repeat the controller combination in step 7, or switch your Xbox High Definition AV Pack with another type of AV pack. Note The opening Xbox animation does not display in 480p, only 480i. To resetthe Xbox Dashboard to 480i Start the Xbox console without a disc in the tray torun the Xbox Dashboard. Note If your Xbox console takes you to the Xbox Live area rather than the Xbox Dashboard main menu, press the B button on the Xbox controller twice to return tothe Xbox Dashboard main menu. From the main menu of the Xbox Dashboard, select Settings. Fromthe Settings menu, select Video. Fromthe Video menu, select 480p.

If your screen appears blank or scrambled If your Xbox Dashboard does not display correctly while in 480p, it might be difficult to see the menus to reset your display to 480i. Connect your Xbox High Definition AV Pack?s green color-coded video output jack (the one marked with the letter Y) to the composite video input of your TV. Note The composite input on a TV is normally color-coded with yellow. Proceed to reset your display to 480i as described above
