Well, I have a couple of solutions that might work...

  1. Check your AV cables, it's possible that they could be the main problem (or try purchasing/borrowing a new cable to test with)
  2. Check your TV's settings, such as if it's NTSC or PAL (if the option exists) and it's colors.
If it's not the TV at all, then I'd say it's definitely #1 -- especially if it's a "Mad Katz" cable. Also, be sure that the AV cable is tight into the ports. One last suggestion would be to try a different TV. Hope this helps! Rob

XBOX NOW PLAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE WITH OLDER TV DID WORK FINE AND DOES ON NEW HDTV ALL CABLES GOOD NOT SURE WHAT TO DO TO GET COLOR BACK


There is a switch that changes the video cable from SD( for use with older TV's without high definition connectivity) to HD (used for newer HD TV's with high definition.

If your older television is using a composite (yellow) connection for video, make sure the switch is in the SD position and NOT hd.

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.

No sound or video on HD and TV modes


I would see if the cable is the issue. If not, you may have a nice new paperweight. Microsoft should fix this for $100 or you could buy a brand new one for $200.

I had this same issue with XBOX 360 #3.

NOO black xbox 360 screen and sound do not work and only day 4


Check to make sure all your cable is plugged in all the way, and if you are using the HD cable, that it is switched appropriately (regular TV to "TV" and HDTV to "HDTV"). If all that is well, call Microsoft, your system is under warranty and they will RMA it.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
