    my Xbox 360 won't show a picture when I turn it on. Before when i turned it on, it showed only green and purple colors. I have an HD TV. Please help!!

    yeah I have the same problem. The xbox seems to be running but I lost signal to the tv. Before I lost the signal I got the same issue of green and purple colors replacing all colors in the game. It gradually became worse until it just stopped sending completely! I replaced my hdmi cable and that DID NOT fix the problem. Going to send it in and hope they help me out

When i turn on x box 360 the green center light appears but the four side lights to not ( no ring). I can open and close the disc on x box but nothing shows up on the tv.

Are your controllers connected to the xbox? that is how you get green light bars around your main green light bar. If you are not refuring to this and nuthing is showing up on your tv screen but you have sound try ajusting/ spinning around the yellow av cord ( Yellow cord is what projects pictures onto screen) . Hope it helped. =]

Black screen with white dots moving around everywhere

It is possible to open your Xbox 360 and fix the problem, which isn't recommended, but there are many tutorials, but if it is not 3 red lights then you don't have the Red Ring of Death. If the whole ring around the Xbox 360 is red then this means that either the Audio-Video cable is not connected properly, or the Xbox 360 is not detecting it. You can try cleaning the AV cable or you could try buying a new AV cable. The easiest way to decide on what you should do is go to:
That is the specific page for your problem and should give you a solution, and if it does not, then you should be able to contact Microsoft, and if it is still under manufacturer's warranty, then they should be able to fix it for free.
I hope I helped! ~Flascher

My xbox 360 wont show a picture but it has sound

it might bea problem with your actual video cord that plugs into the tv.... umm my xbox has a lot of issues too but ive never had this. id suggest you let it say off for a while and try somebody elses cords that connect the xbox to the tv to see if its an issue with your xbox or if its with your cords. ill also suggest you call microsoft and they can troubleshoot...

please rate my solution :) thanks

No video or sound.

This is usually caused by a bad graphics card on the xbox. It isn't always detected by the xbox motherboard. I'm sorry to say, but it's pretty much toast unless you can find a repair guy in your area to solder on a new vga card.

My sons xbox 360 dosn't read that any cables have been connected

Since you already exhausted all the steps to isolate the problem, The probable causes of this issue is the AV PORT is faulty.

You might wanna contact xbox customer support to check the warranty status of your console, hope you still have warranty so that you can send it in for free.. Goodluck

Microsoft xbox 360

It might just be that your AV cable is loose. Try unplugging and replugging it in. If that doesn't work, then it sounds like the graphics are going out, which is another semi-common problem with the 360. If it does finally go out, it might show multi-colored lines on the screen, then nothing at all. At that point you can have Microsoft fix it, get someone else to, or look it up and fix it yourself. But be careful, if anyone but Microsoft opens the 360, it will void your warranty.

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen

If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.
