I can hear the games but can no longer see them. Replaces the cables and the games came back for a while, but now the problem is back. I have two open repair orders with Microsoft dating back 4 weeks and they can't even send me the box to ship out the console. Their help desk is a nightmare and I hate "Max". I have been listening to three weeks of "I'm sorry sir" and "thank you for calling xbox customer service". Supervisors are no help either. Seems like a simple video card replacement is all I need.

Your a/v settings need to be reset. When turning on your console, buy the button located in front of the disk drive, hold it down until you hear it beep once, and continue holding it down until it beeps three time in quick succession. Your console will reset the video setting to default 480p and a prompt will appear for the settings closely matching your tv. Select ok and your resolution will change. From there, when it loads to the xmb, go to the left until you hit the column settings, and go down to audio output settings. From there, chose the option audio multi-output and make sure it's on. Should resolve your issue.
Connect one end of the game console's audio/visual cable into
the corresponding slot on the console if you have an older game
console. If you have a newer console, insert one end of an HDMI cable
into your console's "HDMI OUT" port.
Plug the red and white ends of the audio/visual cable into
the corresponding red and white audio inputs located on the back of your
Vizio plasma TV if you have an older game console. Plug the yellow
cable into the yellow "Video In" input. Depending on which model of
Vizio TV you have, the yellow input may be located either right next to
the audio inputs or it could be located a few ports away.
Plug an HDMI cable into one of your TV's "HDMI IN" ports, if you have a newer console.
Turn on your video game console and your Vizio plasma TV.
Press the "TV/VIDEO" button on your remote to cycle through the various
inputs. You should eventually get to an input that's displaying your
video game console's home screen.
Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.
But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.
Try flipping the switch in the back of the PS3 off and then on so the light on the front is red... Then, hold down the power button on the front of the PS3 for about 5 seconds until you hear a "beep"... This should reset the audio/video, and you'll be able to see and hear everything... Just did it myself!!!
You have several ways to receive the audio signal. >Your HD tv should have inputs for DTS or HDMI The HDMI transfers all signals audio and video with on cable The DTS replaces the white/red audio. The xbox as this cables or you can buy them If you have the RED/White on your tv and you do not have enough connections.. The you can buy a (Y-Splitter Cable) They are cheap!
The first piece of information we need to find out is whether there is any sound from the 360 at all. When you switch menus in the dashboard, do you hear anything?
Do other games have proper sound?
Which game are you trying to play? Some games give the option to alter what sound setup you are using. If your current sound setup does not support 7.1, 5.1 surround sound, etc.. you will not hear anything.
Go to your dashboard. Press the Right Bumper until you get to the "System" tab. Select "Console Settings". Select "Audio". Select "Digital Output". Select "Dolby Digital". Any sound now?
And, as with any audio problem, we need to make sure your audio cables are plugged into the proper jacks. What type of a/v output cables are you using on your 360 (i.e. what color are the tips?).
Thanks, reply back with any information you have, please!
