There is a large possibility that either the cords, or the console is damaged, since you have tried different TV's.

If you still have a varranty, i'd say you use Xbox Support to send it back and let them take a look at it.

Your PS3 may not be in HD mode. When you turn on your PS3 hold down the button until you hear a series of beeps. This will switch the PS3 to work with your HDMI. Now turn off and turn on the PS3 normally and you should have video.

I may be wring on the steps so check your manual or reference:

Works fine other than no picture.


When we experience a no video/display but with sound as if your logging in at your default blade, try to disconnect all the cables including the power cord and the audio video cable. (its the cable going from your console or xbox 360 to your tv). Before you plug it back try also to wipe the prongs or the metal part of the cables to ensure it has no debris or anything that would mess up the connection. If your using an HDTV make sure that the switch of your component cable is click on the hdtv settings. if it still not working for you, try to use a different cable and TV just to isolate the problem. If the issue still persist.. its the system that has a problem. Not exactly the hardware but it would definitely the prongs at the back of the console. So, bring it back to the retailer if its still in 30-days warranty or send for repair to its authorized service center.

Either the cable you are using is no good, or there is an issue with the internal video subsystem. Try changing cables, and if possible, try a different input on your display. If the issue still exists then you may have an internal issue. The only way to diagnose this is to have your local Xbox repair center diagnose it unless you have the tools and experience to do it yourself. Certain parts of the subsystem can be replaced, but for the most part the entire system is replaced.

I hear sound but i cannot see any visuals


Make sure ALL your plugs are properally plugged in (green goes to green) and make sure you are on TV on the HDmi switcher (it is the thicker bottom of the cord that you plug into the xbox.) HD switch has some problems.

My wii wont turn on the power does not show a light


Try a different outlet to make sure the outlet you have it on is good or not.

If a different outlet didn't make it turn on then at that point, try another ac adapter for the Wii. If a different adapter doesn't work then you know the main board inside of the Wii is bad.

PS3 blackscreen, but sound! tried all common tricks to reset!


Try your cable connections..either its not conencting properly to the back of your tv. or your cord is fried. Try a different tv and see if it works, if it does, it may be the connectors on your TV.

Can Hear 360 but can see game


The first thing i would check would be the setting on the AV cable if for some reason it got switched to HDTV then it will not work on that tv.

If this doesnt fix your problem try swapping your cable with one that you know works.

The final step is if all those fail you may need to contact MS and let them know that your System needs repair and then describe to them that you have sound and no video they will refer you to the two things that i have suggested above. Hope this helps
