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

On your AV cable there is a small switch make sure that the switch is positioned to the correct tab such as if your using component (ypbpr green blue red) then have the switch set for that and if you are using composit (rca yellow) then have it set for that one. this sounds more likely like its positioned wrong.

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

My xbox 360 has sound but no picture. I tried the overheating with a towel and it worked for about 10 minutes. Now I have sound but no picture again.

It needs to be fixed, the right way.

If it's still under warranty, microsoft.

If not most shops and dudes on craigslist do it for $40.

Or you can go diy for about $10-15

No picture yet i can hear sound green effect before it happend

First thing would be to make sure that you're only using the yellow, red, and white cables, but seeing as how you said you had picture before, I'm guessing that's not the problem. The 360 uses an automatic recognition for the hardware to make sure that it is set to the right input. So, in essence, it won't be that the settings were changed. I would say go pick up a new cable and see if that's the problem, it sounds like it is. If the cable doesn't solve it then I would say it's time to call Microsoft. For the guest with nothing working, call up Microsoft, I really don't know what else the problem could be except for hardware.

Xbox 360 sound with no picture

I posted here below about an hour ago, I contacted Microsoft and this issue is only under warranty for 1 year,I was well pissed at them,They wanted £60 to fix it,I surfed the net researching the issue and found out it seems quite a common problem,I think the piece of **** 360 over heats cos its made badly,Anyway i read about wrapping your box in a towel???????? I tried it,wrapped it completely in a towel and turned it on,The fan got louder and the machine turned itself off after about 3 minutes,I left the machine for about 30 mins to cool and then i tested it. This is no ******** it actually works, I dont know how long it will last though.
