    did you make sure you plugged the cables in the proper slots? (nice and snug)
    does the tv do this with any other consoles or dvd players using component cables?
    is it plasma or lcd?

How do I hook up Xbox 360 to the HDTV


Step 1:

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360


Step 2:

Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.



Step 3:

Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."



Step 4:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on


Step 5:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.



Step 6:

Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.



Step 7:

Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.



Step 8:

Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.



Step 9:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.



Step 10:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.

How should I hook up my xbox to the back of the television using the red, white, and yellow wires? It is hooked up but I am not getting any audio. Thank you.


First make sure your video cable is set to TV not HDTV

Then plug the 3 RCA cables into the color coded slots on the TV. Make sure you aren't using the red cable from the component RGB but are using the red cable for sound (next to the white one).

Then, if you still have no picture, start the console using the controllers Xbox button and hold "Y" and "RT" until the console restarts. this will reset the video settings on the 360 to default.

Follow this guide if you get confused:

and for the video reset about halfway down the page:

Ok I have a xnox 360 and when i plug the color coded cables into the color coded tv inputs i turn the channal to video 2 and i hear sound but i could not see anything? sooo what do i do?


Are you using AV or component cables?

*Solution for AV Cable*
Check to make sure the cable is fully plugged into the port. Having it even just slightly out of the socket will render no video. If this doesn't work, try plugging it into a different port on your television to make sure the port isn't bad. If you still have no video - the video part of the cable could be bad and you might need a new cable.

Also make sure that if your cable has BOTH component and AV connections available that the switch at the end of the cable near the Xbox is set to "TV" as opposed to "HDTV"

*Solution for Component Cable*
Also check to make sure that all the video connections are fully plugged in. If even one of them isn't plugged in fully, it could render no video. Also make sure that you have them properly plugged in to the right color. If you're just quickly connecting it to the back of the TV without proper lighting, it can be easy to confuse the blue and green connections.

When using component, make sure that the switch at the end of the cable near the Xbox is set to "HDTV" as opposed to "TV".

My Xbox 360 Elite in only showing up in black in white only. It is brand new and I don't know what to do. Can you help?


If you are using component cables, make sure all the colors match up correctly. Note that you cannot use just one color of the component cable and plug it into a composite video plug. Both of these would cause you to have a B/W display.

Good Luck

Hello my name is steve


1. Make sure the Cable is properly connected to the back of the Xbox.

2. Make sure the Cble is properly connected to the inputs on the TV (Color coded if using component or composite cables).

3. Look on the large part of the cable where it plugs into the Xbox. There is a switch with two settings: HDTV and TV. If using the component cables (Green, Blue, Red + White Red), turn the switch to HDTV. If using the composite cables (Yellow, White, Red), switch it to TV.

4. If the problem persists, contact Microsoft at 800 4MY - XBOX . It's a toll free number but it isn't 24 hour.

Problem with xbox


If you are using the grey hd cables that came with the xbox, there is a small selector switch on the base of the cable that plugs into the xbox. You may have to switch that to hdtv if you are using the component cables or tv if you are using the composite.

Brand new xboxdoes not play in color on TV set at school.


Does his TV have other RCA in ports? If so, he should try connecting the 360 to the other one as it could be defective. If he connects a DVD player to the same ports, does he get the same problem? What sort of cables is he using? If he's using a component cable (RGB or YPbPr), he should try using a normal RCA cable. Also, when connecting the 360 to the other TV sets, did you use the same cables he used when he connected it to his TV set? If not, you should try switching the cable.
