Re: no sound, no vision, secure connections,

From what I can gather, it sounds like either an overheating issue, but more then likely a cold-joint issue.

I would suggest to try both x-clamp and 12 cent fix. I would try the 12 cent one first just because you dont have to buy anything....unless you need to buy 12 pennies that is, lol. if that doesnt help, then add in the xclamp along with the 12 cent fix to see if it helps.

Check your connections. Make sure your A/V connections are secure. The 360 has a feature that if it doesn't detect the connection, it powers down.

My xbox 360 will no longer work i plugged it in yesterday and the green power light in the middle came on but i got none of the flashing green circling lights that appear just before it gets to the...

The flashing lights on the outside of the green power button are the status lights for any connected controllers.
Just turn on one of your wireless controllers and the green status lights should come on.
If you turn on a controller and it doesn't automatically connect, press the connect button the top of the controller and front of the Xbox at the same time. This should connect the controller.

When i turn on x box 360 the green center light appears but the four side lights to not ( no ring). I can open and close the disc on x box but nothing shows up on the tv.

Are your controllers connected to the xbox? that is how you get green light bars around your main green light bar. If you are not refuring to this and nuthing is showing up on your tv screen but you have sound try ajusting/ spinning around the yellow av cord ( Yellow cord is what projects pictures onto screen) . Hope it helped. =]

Three red lights flashing on power up. no sound no picture. will open tray. green power light comes on at the power pack.av cables secure. ??? happens all the time can not use console.

his indicates a hardware failure inside the xbox. Your xbox 360 will need to be serviced by Microsoft. There are many internal problems that can cause the three red lights, also known as the "red ring of death" If you would like more information, wikipedia has a good explanation.

You can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX to start the repair process with Microsoft.

Xbox 360 not starting up

If you're using HDMI to connect, make sure the TV is on the correct input as the console will 'wait' for a valid signal before powering up fully (on some TV's).

Also check the colour of the Power Adapter when you have powered up the x360.

Here is a link to troubleshoot the power adapter based on the colour of the light on it:

Hope this helps.

My xbox 360 turns on with 4 green lights but i can not see any picture or sound

it sounds as if you have a connection unhooked or loose somewhere. Double check all audio and video cables are secure and in the correct position. If that doesn't work try troubleshooting by trying a different tv or removing all connections from tv and xbox and re-hooking everything back up.

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.
