Problem with my LG TV and my XBOX360 , there no picture and sound when i connect my xbox with hd cable.

Try different AV ports on the TV, if it doesn't work press the right trigger + Y, right after the console starts (this will reset the resolution of the console output) I'm assuming you are using the same cable that worked with another TV, so neither the cable is broken, neither the Xbox. It can only be an output format problem, bad configured or a faulty TV.

Getting purple dots on the screen when starting up XBox 360. Tryed swapping out cable. Tryed using HDMI cable, tryed resetting video using the xbox controler. Nothing worked.

This would have to be some sort of defect on the motherboard as long as these dots are only noticed when you turn on your console and not noticed while watching tv.

Try set setting a connection between the Xbox and the controller by pressing the small button on the front of the controller (between the LB and RB bumpers) and the small button on the front of the Xbox ( right next to the memory unit B slot.)

Xbox controller takes a signifigantly long time to sync to the system. It takes about two minutes for either of my controllers to connect. What can I do to fix this?

If you have a charge cable, connect that before you start the console, and make sure the proper input is on the TV. The cable should allow it to connect faster, though it\'s not always full-proof. I had this issue also (and still sometimes do) I bought a can of air, and cleaned the entire xbox, since dust can be electrically charged it can technically cause interference. (which is pretty unlikely though) then I disconnected all controllers and headsets and re-set their connection with the console. In addition, any receivers, microwaves or cell phones near your control or xbox can disrupt the signal, including metal and other electronic devices. So try as best you can to keep the area clear of those things.

I am sorry it\'s not a perfect answer, but I hope that it helps you somewhat. I know how much of a pain it can be waiting for your controls to connect.

Good Luck

Xbox 360 controller stopped working

I have the issue mostly when the batteries are about to die, Try changing the batteries, or if you are using a play and charge kit (sold seprately) connect it to your xbox 360 and one of the front usb ports. Or replace the rechargeable battery.

Check your video cable if it is connected and you still get nothing on your tv try to barrow a friends video cable(the one to the tv from the xbox) and see if it works if that does not work it is most likely that you moded your xbox and there is a wire loose in it or a miss soder. if your box is un-modded and the cable is fine, then i have some bad news for you it is most likely your hard drive or your disc drive has died.

No audio/no video, but no red lights

no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.
