Make sure the video connection is in good and check the video cable. Maybe the cable you are using has gone bad or the connector on the game side has gotten flakey.
The XboX is nothing more than a small desktop PC with a proprietary OS, so it is also possible that the video card portion of the box has gone bad. I don't remember if it is an ATI or an NVidia chipset but it is pretty much a built in PC video card the same as you would find in a notebook or a mini system with integrated video. If the video card is bad, you will probably do best to find a used XBoX that the hard drive has died in and combine the good parts from the two units.
I think MS still repairs them but they want a fortune to fix them.

Best of luck.

Cheers.

Xbox 360 no sound or picture but with a twist


The towel trick is just that a TRICK. overheating your console
will shorten the life of most of the electrolytic capacitors.
and if it works it will very temporary.

First thing to try
goto gamestop and buy a multi a/v adpter .that will have
many plugs . plug the xbox 360 adapter in and then
plug the S-video into your set and some time you
can get video single from this line even if the main
Red /white/yellow/ line are dead . and since you have
sound from red /white you should be ok.

If the s-video has no output then your going to have
to do what's called an x clamp mod on it or
have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. this is the most
durable repair.

Any questions feel free to ask.

How to fix flashing dots xbox 360?


It could be the cable port needs resetting. On the TV unplug the tv and on the xbox disconnect the cord and turn off the xbox and unplug it. Then put the different cord on and plug the 360 back in.

No sound threw hd


hey jason,
umm im just throwing suggestions out there, have you tried the sound in all of the sound ports in your tv? and if you already have all i can say is try putting the xbox 360 on another tv to see if your cables are good, if not im guessing its your tv. If you have a newer xbox 360 with a hdmi port just get one of those cables they work great as well.

No video, appears to be no video sync, diagonal rows of dots. Not an HDMI TV, switch is in TV position, cable checked ok by using a new cable, same problem


Sounds like you have an incorrect output signal from the Xbox or a fried chipset in the Xbox. Test the Xbox on another TV or monitor, test another video source on that same connection, if both of those fail, replace the Xbox. Hope it helps!

XBOX not connecting to LG flatscreen -no visuals only sound


There is a switch on the cable where it plugs into the XBOX that says HDTV/TV please make sure that it is set to HDTV when using component connectors.

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.

No picture on 360 with white dotted lines.


Make sure that the video connection is properly connected to the TV.. (yellow to yellow) or if using Red Green Blue, make sure colours are connected to the right ports on back of TV)

Also, if you have the option, make sure either HDTV or Normal TV is selected on the back of the connector to the Xbox (IE, if you do not have an HDTV, select normal cable).
