I have just bought an xbox 360 conected it to my tv allcables connected picture great but no sound

Hi Douglas

I imagine you have bought the new slim Xbox 360? Did you use a HDMI cable to connect it to your TV or did you use the standard cable? If you used a standard AV cable ensure that you connected the red and white cables into the same AV input as the yellow video cable.

Xbox 360 no sound or picture but with a twist

The towel trick is just that a TRICK. overheating your console
will shorten the life of most of the electrolytic capacitors.
and if it works it will very temporary.

First thing to try
goto gamestop and buy a multi a/v adpter .that will have
many plugs . plug the xbox 360 adapter in and then
plug the S-video into your set and some time you
can get video single from this line even if the main
Red /white/yellow/ line are dead . and since you have
sound from red /white you should be ok.

If the s-video has no output then your going to have
to do what's called an x clamp mod on it or
have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. this is the most
durable repair.

Any questions feel free to ask.

My xbox 360 console will power up as normal and put out sound but no video. i have tried multiple tvs and cables with no luck.

are you on a standard def or HD tvs? b/c if you have the xbox set on high def, then you try to plug it into the standard def then you won't get a picture, but you will get sound. If you don't have a high def tv then go to a friends or someone you know's and plug it in to see if you get a picture.

The picture doesnt show but I hear the sound.

Don't worry the HD feed from the xbox 360 has a gain limiter
So the chances are more likely that either your Friends xbox has
the HD setting off or the TV has defaulted to standard video in.
If you get a black screen or a mesage that says no single .
But if your getting strange color on your set with the HD on
then we need to investigate this " Microsoft is liable!" for
damages caused by their console. Ill look in to this and
follow up. The xbox has broken connection under the poorly
soldered G.P.U. and will need to be re-flowed to the main
board to corrects this problem but that's a secondary priority
right now.

I'll check this out for you and follow up.

You bought a new Xbox ,same problem.
Plug the unit in to another tv . Replace the
a/v cable , if still no picture then take it back
and get replacement.

My xbox shows no picture but has sound

This might not help everybody but it might be a cheap fast solution to the "Xbox 360 no picture but sound ok" problem. I have old refurbished 360 that has had no problems at all. SInce I got it have used it with powerwave cooler attached to the back. This cooler has seperate Outputs for Vga, SVga, audio, component and av. Don't need the microsoft cable at all just standard cables. Always had it plugged in with VGA or SVGA cables and got great picture. I bought new 360 and put the old one in bedroom with old tv which only has av inputs. Got shocking picture that was unwatchable but sound was good. Tried all ways but no different. Seems the xbox plug has problems. If you get the powerwave cooler it splits the xbox output socket in to seperate outputs for everything so you can use it with Vga or Svga cables if your tv has those inputs and it should work fine. Only seems to be the standard AV outputs that have problems. Haven't tried the componet leads but I guess they might work as well. If you only have the old yellow, red and white AV inputs on your tv this wont help you but if you have the other types of inputs it might fix it. The powerwave cooler you should be able to buy for under $20 so it could be a cheap solution for this problem everyone seems to be getting lately. It works for me at least so get one and give it a try.

No sound threw hd

hey jason,
umm im just throwing suggestions out there, have you tried the sound in all of the sound ports in your tv? and if you already have all i can say is try putting the xbox 360 on another tv to see if your cables are good, if not im guessing its your tv. If you have a newer xbox 360 with a hdmi port just get one of those cables they work great as well.

Xbox 360 Elite compatible with 62' Mitsubishi HDTV?

I have it and it works great! For all TVs, the TV have to be on fixed settings on standard, dot-by-dot mapping, noise reduction off. The camera's exposure the same for both side-by-side shots. Just set it on standard and it should work...
