Sound issues with xbox live

I am trying to get the audio to work on xbox live for my original xbox but it doesn't come on? Not with regular speakers or headset. I tried switching out the headset and it didn't work. I reset the settings for mixed speakers and I can't hear anyone talking?!! Its real frustrating. Can anyone help?

Re: Sound issues with xbox live

Maybe it has something to do with your controller. Try a different controller.

My xbox is banned from xbox live

If you made a new account for yourself and it wont work, try to delete the old ones. If that doesn't work, contact customer support and see if they can tell why it's banned and if you can have it removed as you are not the original owner.

I have an original xbox and i want to play xbox live

The original xbox is obsolete... Xbox live support for the original doesn't even exist anymore. It's like trying to get tickets to see Michael Jackson live in concert...

No sound or video on HD and TV modes

I would see if the cable is the issue. If not, you may have a nice new paperweight. Microsoft should fix this for $100 or you could buy a brand new one for $200.

I had this same issue with XBOX 360 #3.
