Re: No color on tv when xbox on

Try hooking the xbox up to another tv to see if you get color. If you do it isn't your xbox. If you dont then it's your video cables going bad. Hook a dvd player into the same spot you had the 360 in on your LCD see if you get color. If you dont then its your TV, if you do then it's your xbox video cables going bad.

I have a daenyx lcd tv, model DN-15, input 12VDC-4A and am trying to hook it up to an xbox 360 console.

If you are using the Red/Yellow/White cable, that's composite cable, but if you're using the one that's Red/Yellow/White/Blue/Green, that's called component. So basically, you set your TV's input to the corresponding color match. 5 colors: Component, 3 colors: Composite.

My ps2 has no color when im play games but i can watch DVD's with no problems

Hi, these are reasons or problems that can affect ps2 color.

Its the model games your downloading. the unloaded didn't upload it right.
The problem would have to be your PS2. When you modded it, the PS2 must have had something changed in it.
That thing that you changed may not allow it to read the color on certain PS2 games. You either have to buy a new PS2, or figure out what you did wrong when you modded it.

its something with the chip u used... i did the same thing and replaced it and im working fine now... u should think about getting magic swap... requires no modding to play station and i hear from people that it works well

The thing in the back that hooks up to the back of the tv or cable connection needs to be changed

This may sound stupid and completely obvious, but mine occasionally play without color as well. Try jiggling the RGB cable from the back of the console.

because its the way they made them the only difference is the type of film they use other tha that game play is still the same

go to game stop or a game shop 4 them to fix or it might be that your psp had been dropped or something that happened to it .

Hope it helps.

Color distoration, then the game froze and now video wont work

It could be as simple as the video cables. Get another set of cables and try it. You can get them pretty cheap on auction sites. IF that dont work then I would say your headed for the 3 red lights or no video problem. If thats the case then check with ms and see if your still under warranty. If not we can help.
