Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console

Xbox 360 hdmi connection to dell W3201C no display

Received the xbox 360 package--60gb H/D; head set, extra controller----a few weeks ago. I have a Dell 32" HDTV, model # W3201C. When I hook up via HDMI, no signal, however, the hdmi input shows BOLD, which means it does see something connected. When I use the component cables, it works fine, when I hook up to a newer HDMI Samsung, it works fine, so it's not the XBox, or the cable. It's something with my TV. Dell is no help. the TV is over a year old and I think it's 1080i, and I believe the xbox is 1080p? Could that be the problem? I have run HD from cable on the TV, so I know the connection works, but it just won't find the xbox. I've tried to go into the TV set up to see if I can change the settings, but I I don't see where to change the resolution. Not an expert on this, but usually know enough to take care of my humble set ups. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi,

    having similar problems here. The console powers up, the disks come to life; it sounds like it's working. The cables and console are less than a month old too, so I'm kinda dissapointed by the quality, as up until now it worked without a hitch.

    I'm trying to confirm whether this is a connection issue that is causing the HD TV to not display properly, although this would not explain why it worked before now :P

    these things seem to have an iffy reputation (360 elites) should I claim my warranty?

The W3201c IS 720P. You have to adjust the display output on the xbox 360 to 480p then adjust settings up from there...

Try manually choosing lower resolutions in your xbox display settings. My Insignia HDTV does that when switching resolutions like on Hulu in between commercials and then back to the show but only for a second or so. Also does this when going from the loading screens to the game screens for a few seconds when playing the game Split/Second

How do I hook up Xbox 360 to the HDTV


Step 1:

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360


Step 2:

Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.



Step 3:

Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."



Step 4:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on


Step 5:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.



Step 6:

Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.



Step 7:

Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.



Step 8:

Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.



Step 9:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.



Step 10:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.

Hey im having issues ive had before but fixed easily i just cant remember how to do it. I connect my PS3 through hdmi on my dell W3201c tv, however, now it is saying OUT OF RANGE CANT DISPLAY THIS VIDEO...


Have you tried to reset the PS3's video manually. To do this you turn the unit off at the power supply. Turn it on. Press and hold the power button. You should after a lil time hear a series of beeps. Soon the system shoudl turn off. Turn it on with one touch and it should reset the video for detection mode and then select the monitor by itself.

No video have sound when using component connection on my xbox 360 hdmi ok. help


Your resolution settings on the xbox are too high for your currently used cables or tv. To reset your console's resolution follow these steps: To reset Xbox 360 console display settings
  1. If there is a disc in the console, remove it.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console by using your controller (its best to have the controller plugged into the console rather than just using the wireless). To do this, press and hold the controller's Xbox Guide button until your console turns on.
  4. While the console is starting, press and hold the Y button and pull the right trigger at the same time. Continue holding the buttons when you see the Xbox 360 logo.
  5. The console will restart and you will see the Xbox 360 logo again.
    The console's display settings are now reset to the defaults.

360 won't let me use HD display settings


Have you set the actual monitor settings to 1080? sometimes you have to do that first. If it's not set first the Xbox will only recognize it's current settings.
