Xbox 360 Invalid Format

Hello, one day my T.V just would not have any display in both AV / HDTV mode on my Xbox 360 I can hear the sound in the background. It says "Invalid Format" I believe the problem is the display setting or something, but how am I to fix the problem if I can't see what I'm doing. Can anyone help please?

Thanks for your time.

Is the TV an High Definition TV?
If it's not an HDMI compatible tv them you will need a regular audio video cable for your XBOX 360

This set is a 1080i at best or internally 720P and X BOX 360 may not run on that set. Or maybe you can change the settings in the xbox when it is first turned on and match up format of tv and the xbox. Good luck and let me know how it all turns out. Thank you Jay
