If you turn the unit off and hold down the power on the unit for 3-5 seconds it should beep and show the picture. This will reset the output settings and it should work fine. This is what I have been seeing in other forums.

Can i use a dvd player with my duraband tv

If there is AV in socket, either at the front panel or rear side of the TV, you can surely use it with a DVD player. Just connect the tV with DVD player using an AV cord [can be bought from electronic spare part selling shops at your town]; and select the input to TV to AV. Picture of AV cable attached.

My sounds works and so does my directtv but no picture will show up for my 360 i bought a new av cord and it still wont work how do i fix it

Are you on the correct channel or input for the xbox 360? Also check your av cable to see if it is on the hdtv or regular tv. You can move the switch to make the adjustment. It may be how you have set up your xbox 360 cables and the directv box cables to the tv so you should consult your tv manufactory for the correct guide on setup.

My console turns on< the sounds works but there is no picture on tv> bought another video componet cord and still not working>

well if it is the cord which it is probably not than try moving the part of the AV cable that goes into the tv around. but it is probably the system. It is really hard to open it to see if any thing is wrong so i would just send it in to get fixed. its cheaper than buying a new Wii. Also try buy a new AV cable.

Xbox wont show on screen

Check the little switch on the av cord at the end where it goes into the xbox. If your using component most likely it needs to set to HDTV. If your using the yellow, red, and white cables then set it to TV. My tv will go all black if mine is set to HDTV when I'm using the yellow, white and red ends. I hope this helps.

Picture will not show

You might want to try the following:

1. make sure that the AV cable is not loose or incorrectly seated in both the Xbox 360 console and the TV
2. make sure that you have the correct AV cable for your TV, to verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices
3. if you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings because you may lose the picture
4. make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or NTSC)
- if your Xbox 360 console is an NTSC console, make sure that your TV supports NTSC
- if your Xbox 360 console is a PAL console, set your PAL settings to PAL 60
- if your TV has a type of picture compensation enabled, disable it
5. reset your Xbox 360 console
- Remove any discs from the disc tray
- Turn off the console
- Turn on the console
- As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time
- The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console.
6. Do not take your Xbox 360 console or its accessories to your retailer for repair or for service unless an Xbox Customer Support representative asks you to do this
