Component Cables not reading

I bough my system and the component cables have never read. The Xbox site is no help, as I tried two different cables and the dashboard restart (Y plus right trigger), and I am just about stuck.I have a LCD Tv, so its not like I'm asking miracles! I've tried different tv's and different cables and nothing works! Am I screwed?

I don't want this answer to sound stipid, but are you sure you changed she ntsc to component switch on the back of the cable (unit side). Have you tried the unit in the normal composite mode, yellow, red and white. (low def)? X-box 360's are quite buggy Let me know if it works in the composite mode. Then we can go from there. I sell these units and have run accross some real crazy problems with them. Scrivitron

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.

My xbox restarts when i change to tv


Check these things:1. Is your XBOX360 using HDMI and COMPONENT CABLES?2. If you do have COMPONENT CABLE plugged in then my best bet is you're trying to play XBOX360 with 1080p which COMPONENT CABLES do not support.3. You may need to get an adapter(NOT RECOMMENDED) or just unplug COMPONENT CABLE (RECOMMENDED)lol.
Note:XBOX360 will restart itself when you switch between the two or even if you turn off and on, your TV.
My advice is to use one or the other :)
Hope this helps

Xbox shut off during gameplay, restarted with no video.


You probably were playing for a long amount of time, or had bad ventilation on the Xbox 360. Unfortunately, your Xbox 360 seems like it has over heated, and may have burned the component responsible for video. Here are some steps you may try: 1.Wait 30 minutes and turn it on again. If it fails go to step 2.
2.Make sure the cables are plugged in securely.
3.Use a computer duster, and try blowing out the inputs for the cables (Make sure you blow at an angle).
4.If these steps did not help, you probably have overheated the system, fortunately microsoft offers a special warranty automatically for four years since you bought the system and will repair free of charge.

When i turned my tv on to play my xbox 360 with component cables, my tv says ''not supported''?


Some after arket component cables only support high def, if your tv is standard def it won't work. I'm not sure if this is your problem, but it's worth looking into.

XBOX 360 composite output works fine. Component


You say the component video is no good? Well this usually happens when it is wired up incorrectly, Ensure you have the right colors in the right jacks at each end, it is real easy to get mixed up... make sure Red goes to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to green, all alongside each other, NO ALSO using Component you MUST also run 2 more cables for the Audio, they are Red & White NOT the Red from the "Other" Video input, BUT the AV Red & White jacks, beside each other on the units. So all in all there are 5 cables taking the Video, 3 R, G, B. + The Audio, R & W.

White stripes on tv screen


Could be either really, you are using the component cables that came with the console correct? The lines look identical on both screens? If so then you are on the right track but I would lean towards the xbox360 being the culprit. I would bring your 360 into a local video game store and nicely ask them if they could hook it up to one of their TVs (they have them to test consoles people trade in), with their component cables and see if they have the problem as well. If they do you know it's the xbox and not the cables, if they don't then it sounds like you have a cable problem.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

Component cables on HDTV not working


have you tried hooking a different video source upto to the tv to make sure it is not the dvd player that is not giving a signal to the tv?  Like an Xbox 360 or anything else with component output.

Xbox360 -after 5 minuetes of use ,no video - just sound


Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem
