Re: video problems

I would check to see if the AV cord you have is set to HDTV or reg TV if you dont have a HDTV then your setting needs to be on TV.

Trying to use the HDTV will give you this issue where you here sound but no video.

The setting is on the neck where you plug it into the xbox360.

When I turn on my xbox the screen shows lines and colours and green/red dots. I can make out what is on the screen but it is fuzzy. The sound is also wrong, on and off and strange when you can hear it. I...

I would try cleaning the connections to the xbox and the TV. Also you could try connecting with a different type of cable (VGA or use the HDMI cable).
If that doesn't clear things up then you could have a hardward problem with your xbox.

My elite has works but the video doesnt, even with light on cable

turns out after a bit of fiddling around that there is a switch on the 360 elite's VGA cable that you can switch on and off, i never knew they had these switches because it is my first tme with an elite, machine works fine though so far no freezes or glitches and im playing fallout 3. anyway for allthose that cant get video because of the cord or something make sure you check your VGA TV/HDTV switch, as i missed it too.

New xbox 360 arcade no screen or sound

to start off,what type of cable are you using??
since you've already tried using 2diff TVs,basically its with the console

try using a different AV CABLES, if it still doesnt work,try calling xbox support hotline for possible replacement of your cable or for processing a repair for the xbox if necessary..

since you just bought your console,try going back to the store where you bought it and have it replaced, because for the repalcement of the cable if you call xbox support,it will take 8-12business days for toureceive it and 2-3weeks for the turn around time of the repair for the xbox.

Game screen has silver outline.

The best way to rule out one problem for another looks to be trying to get different cables.

So if you are able to, I would try a different set of cables and see where that gets you. Let me know the results, and we can work from there if that doesnt fix your problem.

Can Hear 360 but can see game

The first thing i would check would be the setting on the AV cable if for some reason it got switched to HDTV then it will not work on that tv.

If this doesnt fix your problem try swapping your cable with one that you know works.

The final step is if all those fail you may need to contact MS and let them know that your System needs repair and then describe to them that you have sound and no video they will refer you to the two things that i have suggested above. Hope this helps

Xbox 360 no video but have audio after playing madden

Something to try is just leave the xbox on for an hour, turn off let cool for 5 min. If that doesn't work, it's a difficult solution to recommend but the towel trick' does work, let it over heat the 360 for about 20 min, then let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.

Xbox 360 sound problem

HDMI carrys no sound you still need to have the audio cables from the component plugged into the tv. If this doesnt do the trick you should call MS or check your TV's settings maybe there is a special function when using that resolution. Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting

Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?
