Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

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

You bought a new Xbox ,same problem.
Plug the unit in to another tv . Replace the
a/v cable , if still no picture then take it back
and get replacement.

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.

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 :)

Sound but no picture

On some av cables for the Xbox 360 there is a switch on the cable itself where it plugs into the Xbox that must be in the correct position. I hope this helps you.

No picture

What do the plugs on the cable look like? Are they just Yellow, Red, and White... or are there five different colors?

Do you have a high-def television or a regular old one?

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.
