As long as the switch on the side of the cable isn't on HD or TV when it needs to be on the other depending on your tv type, then I would first try switching the cable (If you have a friend, borrow his cable to try this).
If that doesn't work, then most likely the "X" Clamps on this unit need to be replaced. They are the number one part to fail on these systems and cause both the no video problem and the Red Rings of Death Problem.
The real cause of the Xbox 360 no video issue then is actually overheating. The excess heat causes damage to the "X" clamps which hold the graphics processor unit in place. When these clamps become sufficiently loose, the graphics processor/video card stops working, hence the no video on your Xbox 360.

Replacing these clamps can be a pain, but if you want to try to do it yourself, then follow the instructions on the following website link
http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm
Hopefully, by replacing these, you won't encounter the RROD problem any time soon either. Let me know how this turns out.

Thanks for your question. To fix the 3 red lights what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in.

XBOX360 No Audio, No VIdeo, Solid Green Light


the G.P.U has more than likely detached from the main board.
the x clamp mod is more of a diagnostic procedures than an
actual repair function. The G.P.U will need to be re-flowed to
the main board then lightly but firmly clamp to the board
then stress tested (force it to run hot for 15 min shut off and
repeat 3 times)

that's it

Ring of death on original Xbox


An indicator light that is flashing red indicates that there is an Electrically Erasable Programmable
Read Only Memory (EEPROM) error and that Xbox cannot start. EEPROM is a memory device that does not lose the information programmed to it when power is lost.
This is where items such as language setting, video modes, audio modes, and game region are stored.
Back to the top THINGS TO TRY
1. Remove all discs from the Xbox console.
2. Turn off the Xbox console and leave it off for thirty seconds.
3. avoid overheating and other problems.
Make sure the Xbox console is not located near a heat source.
Heat sources can include TVs, computers, monitors, and other electrical devices.
Make sure the vents are not blocked. There are vents on the left and right side,
and on the rear of the Xbox console. Make sure each vent has at least six inches
of clearance and space for air to circulate. If the Xbox is inside a cabinet, move it to see
if this prevents heat problems.
4. After the Xbox console is set, turn it back on and make surethat you see a steady green indicator light on the front.
5. If the console continues to flash a red light, the console may need repair.

Follow the steps below, Hope this helps

1. Try another Av cable ( Audio video Cable )

2. Try another television

3. If the steps dont work, call xbox customer support to have your xbox serviced. Good Luck! hope your console still has warranty

The main reason why its acting that way its possible that the AV PORT is faulty.

No ring of light no red nor green and controllers wont connect


i assume you mean wirelss controllers, if so, on the front of the console there is a round connect button marked '>>',( to the right of the memory port 2) press and release this and there is a little pairing connect button on the controller at the front press this, then the lights should then circulate and stop in either the upper left or upper right segments. you can view here if you prefer illustrations http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemsetup/xbox360/console/wirelesscontroller.htm
