Light is on and green but no video coming out to television what might be the problem.


Typically, this problem occurs if the audio/video (A/V) cable is not connected correctly, or if the A/V cable is faulty.

Solution 1: Set the television or monitor to the correct input
Make sure that the TV or monitor is set to the correct input for the console. Check the TV or monitor's manual to see how to configure the video inputs, or try to use the console on a different TV or monitor.

Solution 2: Connect the A/V cable securely
Sometimes, you can insert the A/V cable far enough to prevent any red lights from flashing on the Xbox 360 console but not far enough for the console to transmit images or sounds to the screen.

Solution 3: Switch the Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable to the correct setting
Make sure that the TV/HDTV switch on the cable is set correctly.
  • For standard-definition TVs with only the yellow connector plugged in, set the switch to TV.
  • For high-definition TV or monitors with the red, blue, and green connectors plugged in, set the switch to HDTV.

How do i connect an x box 360 to a HD ready tv please explain simply


Every xbox comes with the HD av cords. However they are not only the standard red, white, and yellow. But they also come with green, blue, and red av cords. These are the HD cords.Your HD tv should have green, blue, and red outlets on the back of the tv. It also has a another red and white outlet under it. So you have to take the HD cords and plug them into the appropriate outlets and then take the red and white cords from the other set of avs and plug them in right under those cords so you will have sound when you turn your xbox on. On my tv the red and white outlet is right under the HD outlet. But your tv may be different. And make sure that the "box" on the cord that reads either TV or HDTV is flicked toward HDTV.

I just need to see a visual connection of xbox 360 to bacig flat screen tv.Eight now i am not getting a picture.Ihave regular x box hooked up and iam getting a picture for that.


First check the AV audio/video wires to determine if you have SD or HD wires. If you have 3 plugs (red, white, and yellow) then you will get standard definition (SD). If there is 6 wires (2 red, white, yellow, blue, and green) then you can connect High Definition (HD) and you can also connect SD as well. Now what you need to look @ if you have the wires with 6 ends (component HD AV wire), is on the part where you plug into the back of the Xbox 360, there is a switch on the box that is on the wire. It should say "TV" and "HDTV". If you have the component wires hooked up (5 wires) then select "HDTV" if you have only the 3 wires (red white yellow) for SD hooked up switch it to "TV". That is the first thing to check. The next thing to check is the way the wires are hooked up. If connecting HD, you very easily could've mixed up the 2 red wires, 1 is video and the other is audio. The way to determine which is video and which is audio is, for video, the actual plug itself is gray with a stripe of color which indicates where it goes on your tv, the audio plugs are solid white or red. And remember that the yellow plug is not used for HD setup. If you have a Xbox 360 that has the HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) input, then I would recommend using that to hook up your console. With the HDMI its only 1 wire to hook up and is extemely easy to set up. The HDMI wire transfers audio and video all in 1. There is only spot it can fit into, and its located right next to where you plug in the AV wire on the console. To me, the HDMI is "cleaner" looking b/c its only 1 wire.

HOOKING UP XBOX 360 TO HDTV


You have to use the regular red and white cords(not the yellow) and u have to use all 3 hd cords. If ur tv doesnt have a place to put the cords in, then it isnt HD. Also on the plug connecting to the 360, there is a switch that has HD and regular, switch it to HD. hope this helped.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

Cannot view picture or game for my xbox 360


Make sure you are using the correct video settings. Try using the basic red white yellow cords and see if that helps. Also make sure you have switched between HD and regular video. there is a switch on the video cable connector that plugs into the xbox.

Have you checked the AV cable? If you are not using a HDTV, on the AV cable, there should be a little switch (referring to the end that slots into the xbox), well, make sure that the switch (look really closely now) is pushed up to TV. However, if you ARE using a HDTV, ensure that the switch is on HDTV. If this doesn't work. Check to see whether the cables are correctly plugged into the TV. If using HDTV, the red and white should be plugged in next to each other, in the appropriate holes. And all the other colours (excluding yellow) should be plugged into their appropriate holes (for video). If not using HDTV, plug the yellow , red and white into their appropriate holes. Also, your HD settings may be incorrect, put the Xbox 360 into standard definition of a standard definition tv and chenge the settings into the appropriate settings for your television (go to system, settings, Display, HD settings etc. If none of these features work, contact microsoft or just buy a new cable. HOPE THIS HELPS!! From Mike
