Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

I have sound but no picture

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?

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

My son's Dynex TV has no sound except when he plugs in his xbox. What do I do?


If the TV has sound using an Xbox, then the problem is not with the TV, otherwise you would have no sound no matter what you hooked up to the TV. You may have to adjust the TV menu controls that involve receiving a TV signal that provides both sound and picture.

Hook your Xbox to tv via HDMI, then hook TV to reciever through digital optical or composite cables. If you try to get your picture through receiver first, you may get picture and sound but, sound may be delayed and picture might not be the best. Bettter to run through tv first then provide sound to receiver.

Trying to plug in my xbox and can get sound but no picture


Is this the first time you've tried plugging in your Xbox?

Is it Xbox or Xbox 360?

Try plugging it into another TV yet?

I've had a similar problem where I've manually set the resolution of my television on my Xbox. I had it set up for 1080p and then plugged it into my little CRT. The picture was all scrambled and I couldn't do anything. I had to plug it into another TV to fix it. This is the original Xbox by the way.

Check the settings on the Xbox, and if that doesn't work, try swapping out the cables or put it on another TV.

Try a new video cable from the XBOX to TV or check another source like a DVD player to the TV thru the same Vid 2 input. You either have a bad cable, bad video section on your XBOX or a bad input on your TV. Hope this helps

Xbox 360 sound but no picture can any one help


If you've just bought your xbox 360, then you probably haven't got a HDMI cable.

Which I think you could need.

Can't Get 360 to Work


Your receiver is not capable of upconverting analog to HDMI (digital). You will need to add component video cables either from the Denon to the TV or simply straight to the TV from the XBox. Audio should be handled solely by the Denon receiver.

No picture only sound with the xbox system


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 :)

Make sure all the tv picture and audio cables are plugged in fully, if not fully plugged in, the cables can not work at all. If that doesn't work, consider sending it to microsoft or get new cables.
