Here's one possiblility.

There should be a switch on the x box cable that goes from High definition output to analog.

Try changing the swith setting.

SOURCE: No picture on TV when Xbox 360 is turned on

For the most part, an XBOX will display a picture on the TV regardless of what the settings are. If there is no picture, it is most likely the cable or the XBOX output terminals themselves. 
Since you have said that your friend's AV cable didn't work either, even though it did on his, we must assume that the problem is with the XBOX.
 If the warranty is still on the console, call Microsoft and send it in. If it isn't either call Microsoft and see that they can do, or find an online repair shop that can help you.

My xbox 360 will not produce picture on the T.V.


I believe your xbox may be heading towards the RROD
(Red Ring of Death) it is due to the graphics card overheating and has now failed but it hasnt caused a total hardware failure which is why you are still getting sound! their are fixes on ebay if you look for RROD repair kits you will come across quite a few, make sure it has a guide, if you are confident you should have no problems, what you will need is T10 and T8 screwdrivers, sellotape, wd40 and a repair kit with thermal paste and about 1 to 2 hrs of spare time.
Hope this helps

Xbox 360, 3-4 yrs old, suddenly no picture, only sound. Can you help advise how to fix it? TV (new, with HD, LED etc), says mode not supported, or No signal found, although connected. Sound comes through,...


If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Stop the heat to the scaler chip and you will have it working.

My xbox 360 wont show a picture but it has sound


Since your sound works, you know the xbox is booting properly.  Check two things: 1) try another television to make sure it's not the tv.  2) try another cable(from a friend?) to see if the cable is bad.
**Also, if the video settings were saved on an unsupported setting, it could cause the screen to not show video.  If you try these 2 things and you think someone might have saved bad settings, I recall a button combination you can use to reset certain things, and I try to help if it comes to that.

My xbox wont show on my tv,cant hear sound but no


It's possible that your Xbox is sending out a picture that's higher resolution than your TV can display. Try reducing the resolution of the Xbox video output.

Picture will not show


You might want to try the following:

1. make sure that the AV cable is not loose or incorrectly seated in both the Xbox 360 console and the TV
2. make sure that you have the correct AV cable for your TV, to verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices
3. if you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings because you may lose the picture
4. make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or NTSC)
Example:
- if your Xbox 360 console is an NTSC console, make sure that your TV supports NTSC
- if your Xbox 360 console is a PAL console, set your PAL settings to PAL 60
- if your TV has a type of picture compensation enabled, disable it
5. reset your Xbox 360 console
- Remove any discs from the disc tray
- Turn off the console
- Turn on the console
- As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time
- The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console.
6. Do not take your Xbox 360 console or its accessories to your retailer for repair or for service unless an Xbox Customer Support representative asks you to do this
