I have no picture but hear the sound of the system on my tv


It could be 3 things:

Your tv connections are disconnected and need to be replaced. See if anything else works when plugged into these connections.

Your cable cord could have a disconnect internally and the cord needs replaced.

Your graphics card on you XBOX 360 is shot any you need to replace it.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.

My xbox 360 shows only black and white on the tv. and i blinks in and out somtimes in colr and black and white what do i do?


This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 or even no sound but graphics or black and white problems just like you are reporting.

Firstly get a spare av cable from someone else, try this, if that does the same then try a different scart
input on the tv. if all this fails you need to fix your machine as it WILL get worse

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you, there are guides available on the
internet. Im in the middle of producing one right now that i will make available free of charge for all fixya
members.

Xbox 360 no video but sound


My Xbox 360 video and sound went out and It is not the cord because I used another cord and it still did not work. I was playing a game and the graphics went to really good to bad and I reset the Xbox and know it just comes up with black screen with lines on it.

Xbox 360 plays for a few minutes and then the screen goes black with no sound or picture.


your graphics processor IC chip needs its solder joints reflowing, and the heatsink re securing.

This will solve the problem.

Video no longer works, only sound


Hello!
This is similar to the Red Lights Of Death. But instead of your CPU having a bad connection, it's your GPU. There is a 3 year warranty on the 360, so call Microsoft and get it repaired or replaced. If the warranty seal is broken you can take it apart and replace the x-clamp with 4 screws, 8 fiber washers, 8 steel washers and heat sink paste. Contact me for further instructions if doing it yourself. I hope this helps.

Good luck and happy gaming!!

Picture but no sound


make sure you try it with different tv's as well, my tv messed up and i thought the video from my xbox was messed up, but it was just the tv. also try switching the ports, (put the red where the white goes and the white where the red goes, leave the yellow alone)
