    my xbox is not new. I have had it for about a year and this problem has just started, I tried a new av cable and tried an alternate television. The problem must be somewhere in the box... I know it is hooked up correctly.

Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no picture 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 :)

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.

Hooking up external speakers to Sansui HDLCDVD320


I'm sorry, but the Sansui HDLCDVD320 has no analog audio out jacks. If you have a cable or sat box, etc, you might be able to get audio from their outputs. I hope this helps you.

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.

The problem is probably that you have put the cords in the wrong places or have used the wrong cords
