I just received a new tv for xmas and I plugged my xbox into it and all I am getting is the sound and no picture. I also tried plugging it into a converter box and nothing. Could it be the wires from the xbox to the tv?

Re: I have sound but no picture
Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing
device also has some more common problems like Audio ,video
problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty
only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to
get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to
Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your
favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem

This definately means Audio/Video cables were hooked up incorrectly.... New televisions are getting more and more complicated..... . make sure that the switch on the cable is set for HDTV... experiment a little... have the tv, and the xbox both on while you are doing this,,, while having someone watch the tv to check everything out. I had this same problem with figuring the hook-up on a newer tv. On my tv... The channel i play games on is : Composite.... on the back of my tv... where i can hook the audio/video cables up to... it also has a little white border around a certain set of plug-ins which says Composite right above it... all of the cables plug in to that one, except the yellow one.... If this does not work, just let me know and i will figure out a different solution... but im 99% sure this will work. Let me know if there are any other questions. Please rate this answer :)
the problem all the time with the 360 is on the cable that gose into the back of the xbox has a small switch on the side of it my suspisions are its at hd slide the switch to tv then re set it this should work fine
