Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

My 360 turns on but no picture appears although sound is present

My 360 (approximently 2 years old) is showing no picture when turned on. My xbox is making the normal sounds and the fan is running, along with game sound but no picture. On my tv, the screen is either blank or black with white dots streaming across the screen. I have tried other av cables and the issue is still present. Any ideas or suggestions before i buy a new console or get it repaired by microsoft?

I hadn't had my xbox 360 on all day and when I turned it on it had 3 red rings. No picture is showing up on the TV and the light on the power supply is green.


That is the red ring of death...if your XBOX is less than 3 years old call Microsoft tech support and they will arrange for a replacement unit.

Xbox 360, 3-4 yrs old, suddenly no picture, only sound. Can you help advise how to fix it? TV (new, with HD, LED etc), says mode not supported, or No signal found, although connected. Sound comes through,...


If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Stop the heat to the scaler chip and you will have it working.

My Xbox 360 will not show a picture you can hear the sound but there is no picture.


1) make sure the video cable is firmly inserted into the back of your xbox 360. Sometimes a loose connection will produce this result.

2) Check the end to your television set and make sure it is in correctly. Is this HDMI ??

3) Cycle the inputs on your tv until it gets back to your xbox 360 and see if the picture appears.

4) If you have this hooked up via HDMI, connect it through another method and go into the video settings in your xbox 360 dashboard and set them to auto detect.

Let me know if this helps.

No video or sound.


This is usually caused by a bad graphics card on the xbox. It isn't always detected by the xbox motherboard. I'm sorry to say, but it's pretty much toast unless you can find a repair guy in your area to solder on a new vga card.

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.
