Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When i wanted to play skate. i turned my xbox 360 on and i heard all the sounds and there wasnt any picture
Hey guys,sorry about my english first of all :D
the solution is simple.i had the same problem,i bought a new cable.i tryed it on different tv's.i was worried cos my console show me the 3 red lights some times and i was ready to make my xbox a cofee stand but i tryed this :
1)shut down the console
2)turn on back again and press y(yellow button )and right trigger ,,keep holding until console reset...and there it is ,,the console goes back to dispaly default settings.
i didnt mess around with my console,i dont know how the settings changed
i had sound but not image
in some tv's not even sound
the past three months i had 3red lights many times so i think this is a temporary solution my console is about to make a big "trip"

Hello i have repaired many console with many problems like 1 ,2 ,3 red lights all easy repairs to me but one of the best metjods to do it with is the towel trick .place the console on its side with no hard drive or disk inserted also do not have the av leads plugged in just the power pack .compleatly cover the xbox with 2-4 towels they must be thick.just watch it when doing the towel trick though as it may turn off a few times .DO NOT UNWRAP just turn it on again using the controller do this for 20 - 40 mins then try it. it will also make a loud jet sound tht is just the fan speeding up!!!!! if this dosent work lift it up slightly then drop it make sure it is side ways then try if tht hasnt worked then towel again after that as it5 might have moved the chip back into place . if you have any problems email me at

Towel trick may get it working for some time but eventualy it will return to the black screen :(

You may have a bad video cable, remove it and re-attach it. Make sure no pins are bent. Try cleaning the contacts.
If you have another cable try it.
Possible bad video output IC
Check here if that did not fix it.
