Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
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.

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.

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
