Re: i get sound no flashing red lights

It sounds like the part responsible for converting the video to a TV signal has gone bad, especially since it didn't change after trying new cables. Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do at home for this kind of problem.

If you've owned your 360 for less than a year, contact Microsoft and arrange a repair, since it's still under warranty. If you've had it for more than a year, contact the extended warranty company (you did buy the extended warranty, right?) ... if you didn't, and it's more than a year since you got it, I'm afraid you're out of luck.

On my xbox 360 when i'm playing a game then suddenly directs me to the desk top and when i shut my xbox 360 off the power button flashes green every few seconds why is this happening ?

It sounds like a DVD drive error. When the center light inside the "ring of light" blinks rapidly it thinks the DVD drive is either open or not connected. You can buy a new DVD drive off Ebay for a decent price or take it to a professional shop. When changing the DVD drive you have to also put the original PCB from the old drive onto the new one or it will not play games. It will play DVD's all day but no games. There is a bit of soldering involved. If your not confident you can make the repair check out this site for help. they do good work and are very reasonable.

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.

My xbox 360 is showing green

no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.
