Plays dvds on xbox 360 fine, but no picture for games/dashboard
Hello, my Sharp LC32SB23U is having a strange problem i don't seem to know how to remedy. i have my xbox 360 hooked up to the component input with component cables. when i play dvd's on my xbox, the picture and sound function properly and everything is great. however, when a dvd is not in use, the screen is black, though i can hear and still control the xbox dashboard. the screen stays black even when a game is being played, but again, i can hear the sound and even control the game. just no visual. i tried my xbox on another similar lcd tv and everything was fine with the xbox. I've tried everything i can think of and everything recommended in the manual. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.

This is an internal Fault. Diagnosis is required to make sure
whether it is Failed T Con Board or Light Engine. I do not think that
it would really help by changing the TV settings. This was a Common
Problem with Old LCD's where you got Blurry Spots specially while
Playing Real Fast Movies or Games. On Few Occasions, it as Corrupted
As i cannot see the Video or Screen from here, more
likely what i could guess it is an Internal Fault as you have tried
using HDMI, Use different Setting Combination's and you got the same
Picture Quality with DVD as well.
So, what i could suggest, get
back to the Seller and Lodge an Official Complain and get it Replaced.
There is no point in Opening and TV and Inspecting it and Replacing
Components when it was less than a month ago.
Reset your TV, try unplugging it for a while, if that doesn't help, try restoring or resetting it to defaults, there should be a function for that somewhere in the menus of the TV. that should solve the issue, if it still remains, check the cables and if possible try another hdmi port.
I also have a Hitachi 53SDX89BA and I bought it with the same assumption as you: that it's HD ready. The specs in the manual states the following: "Full 1080i HDTV Capatable with Set-Top Box". I beleive this means that it does not include an HD tuner, but that it is capable of handling up to 1080i resolution. Normal (non-HD) resolution on this TV is 480i.
So here's my problem: Until recently, I wasn't using the HD settings on this TV because I don't have a set top box, nor do I subscribe to any HD content from my cable provider. However, I just purchased an XBox 360 along with an XBox 360 HD-DVD player (it's an XBox peripheral that works with the game console). The Xbox asks you to choose the resolution output (480i, 720i or 1080i) to match your TV's HD capabilities. When I select 1080i output and change my TV's settings to receive an HD signal, the picture quality is amazing. However, the video signal seems to get lost ocassionally (i.e. TV picture gets scrambled) but then it comes right back. This does not happen when I select a 480i output on the Xbox...but of course, the picture isn't as crisp and clear as a 1080i picture.
I don't know if this is a problem with the TV or with the Xbox. Has anybody else had this problem??
No problem at all, with one precaution, if you have to pause the game for more than 30 seconds SHUT THE TV OFF.Heres a good example, middle of a hard stage and it`s time for dinner, do the following : pause the xbox, turn tv off, go eat dinner, come back in & turn tv on, unpause xbox and life is good, don`t have to start the game over, no damage or harm to the tv. I do this to my 53" Hitachi everyday and I`m a tv tech with 29 years in the trade,enjoy the xbox on your big screen, BMW Rider
Logically proceed one source at a time = disconnect all,
then hook-up one at a time or hook-up seperately.FYI, the
RF coax , composite and s-video inputs all share the same
circuitry, whereas component is a whole seperate video
processing circuit, with another difference between 480P and
1080 I . Sounds like you have a 1080 I problem, which might
be a little sister board..............................T.
