Hi, we have a ps3 we play Black Ops on. Its connected to a Sony Trinitron tv w/composite cables. Lately, the picture has been very hazy and dark, no bright colors like it used to be. Its hard to see where...

green sounds like a TV problem if persists with other games could be TV but im kinda thinking it is ingame settings occasionally updates can reset picture settings in the game i think for black ops it had some kind of adjust brightness until you can't see this object in background and sometimes it helps to go back and check that only other explanation would be you went to different resolution ex: 480, 720(hi def), 1080(highest high def)

Xbox video output is not working

the only thing i can think of is that your settings are messed up, to reset the video back to the default settings right when you start it up hold down the Y button and the right trigger, that might fix your problem, either that or you might have the HD switched on on accident

Im plugging in all my xbox 360 cables but the game wont show up

If you have the cable that is both component and a regular a/v cable, make sure that the switch is on regular tv and not hd, then ste the hd settings to what your tv can handle and then turn it back if you need to.

To troubleshoot sound without picture issues, follow these steps:
  1. Reset the resolution of the console to 640x480. To do this, start the console, hold both triggers, and then press and hold the Y button as the console starts. For more information about how to reset your display settings, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 911059 ( ) How to reset your Xbox 360 console display settings to the default display settings If you see a picture on the display after you try this step, you can continue to use the 640x480 resolution, or you can try to use a higher resolution setting. If you still cannot see a picture, continue to the next step.
  2. Disconnect the VGA HD cable from the display, and then remove the console power cord from the power outlet.
  3. Wait five seconds.
  4. Reconnect the console power cord to the power outlet, and then turn on the console.
  5. Reconnect the VGA HD cable to the display. If you can see a picture on the display after you try this step, you can continue to use the 640x480 resolution, or you can try to use a higher resolution setting.

HDMI Problem

ok i think you need to reset the video settings here is a step by step procedure which you can follow

To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
  1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console.

    Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn on the console by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Wait for the guide light to indicate that the controller has linked to the console.

    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is indicated by the upper-left quadrant light on the console.
  4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button as you pull the right trigger.

    Note This action causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings. The console then automatically restarts.

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.

HDTV Problem

there shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component Use the following colours into your tv:- Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs. Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings

How do i connect my 360 to run on HDTV to a bush lcd tv?

HD is a new sort of signal transmitting/receiving technology; therefore, all software and hardware components you have to use must be able to support the relevant technology. (HDMI=High Definition Multimedia Interface)I am not sure if your 360 has an HDMI output, but if it has one, you have to use one of those HDMI cables. As well, the LCD model you mentioned has to be able to support HDMI signals. As I know, scart plugs don't usually support HDMI. Similarly, individual connector cables don't support it either. All you need to have is a digital coax cable.
