How do I troubleshoot a problem with no video? Games nor movies play. I hear the disc spinning up, but the video never displays. nor does the sound for that matter, but I assume that is due to the disc no...

Even if it was a bad disc you should boot up to the home menu without problem. I would try replacing whatever type of AV cable you have running from your PS3 to your television. It could be once solid black cable with USB like ports on both ends (HDMI) or a cord with one end split into various colors (AV or Component) If replacing this cord doesn't help you may have a bad connection on one or multiple ports on your system/tv or it could be an internal problem.

No picture but sound just warning


Check the connections running into the Xbox and into the TV. It sounds like you have a cable that needs to be replaced. If replacing the cable doesn't work you'll need to contact Microsoft and get that unit serviced.

Xbox 360 Video Problem

HI. Replacing the video cable would also be my first suggestion. The Xbox AV cable has many manufacturing faults. If you are using the original cable tat came with the unit, I suggest to replace it with newer model.

Now, if you experience the same issues after replacing the original AV cable, this will lead to a more serious issue that concerns the HANA chip. This chip is responsible for the transfer of information through the AV cables. The transfer port(the AV cable end that is inserted into the Xbox), is directly connected to this actual chip. If the internal connections to this chip have failed, or are failing, this will be the culprit. The chip will need to be replaced, or the solder joint will need to be resolderd. If this unit is still under warranty, I would suggest to contact Microsoft for a free repair ticket. Do Not open the case if the unit is still under the manufactures warranty. This action will void the warranty.

NOTE_ Try replacing the AV cable first.

hmmm, this may be either really tricky or simple as pie. If the Video is coming through but sound isn't the first thing I think of I bad RCA wires that come from the console to the TV (the white and red, yellow is Video) Any chance you have a "back-up" cable to try out?

No Picture on TV

Try replacing the A/V cable. It sounds like that the cable that is for the video is broken. I would replace that first.

Did you try moving the end of the AV cable that's connected to the PS2 system while it's on? It may be a bad connection on the actual system. If it is, that can really only be fixed by Sony.
