This is a common problem and normally it develops into the e74 error. Well the reason that it happens is because of the scaler chip getting too hot and not the AV cable being dodgy.

You will need to get it fixed or send it back to Microsoft

Im presuming you have check all the cables settings...
and still just audio , It requires that the G.P.U. be Preheated
and seated ( clamp down) and then Burn in A.K.A. x clamp mod.
the dead video problem needs a little more then the regular
x clamp mod , so make sure who ever dose it has a good
success rate .

I got the same problem.
First try the TV-HD switch: If connected with red, yellow and white to your TV: Move the switch on the cable to TV (its on the side of the cable connected to the xbox). If connected with red, blue and green HD components: Move the switch to HD.
If any of these wont work try switching between HDMI, HD components, or regular red,yellow,white cables to see if it's not the cables fault.
If you tried the TV-HD switch and tried using the three different video output cables and the xbox still wont show on your tv, you are screwed just like me, and will probably will have to UPS the xbox to microsoft so they can fix it. The reason being that the chip that is related to video output on your xbox got too hot from leaving your xbox turned on too long and now it doesn't work.

SOURCE: No picture on TV when Xbox 360 is turned on

For the most part, an XBOX will display a picture on the TV regardless of what the settings are. If there is no picture, it is most likely the cable or the XBOX output terminals themselves. 
Since you have said that your friend's AV cable didn't work either, even though it did on his, we must assume that the problem is with the XBOX.
 If the warranty is still on the console, call Microsoft and send it in. If it isn't either call Microsoft and see that they can do, or find an online repair shop that can help you.

If you need furthur assistance, feel free to ask. If this response helped you, please rate it!

SOURCE: Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen

Could be that the graphics card has burnt out. I had it happen to mine whilst playing. The colours on screen distorted and when i rebooted the console starts up and runs like normal except that it had no signal out to tv/monitor. Online repairs service costs £60 last time I looked

What is the xbox 360 status code 69-C00D3E9A? i get this when sreaming mp4 videos from my pc using traversity through the xbox. some will play others i get this code.


I think the content is too high definition. If you're using component, like i am, it plays the lower resolution videos just fine, but higher resolution videos won't play. But when it's connected to an LCD tv, it works just fine? Must be that.

If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Once you stop the heat you should be fine.

I turn on my xbox but nothing shows on my tv


Lots of reports of problems like this have been reported among xbox consumers. The xbox is actually kinda unreliable (look at the price drop lol). If you still have warranty take it back. It's probably fried and never will work again.

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen


If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.
