Has it been flashed with xtreme firmware?

check the scart cable and make sure the switch is on the right setting (tv/hd)

when it was working did you put a game in and was you asked to update? if so you could have got a bad update.

if you have a hard drive detach it and then try turning it on.

if none of these work write a reply in this section and i'll get back to you.

please rate my solution and how it helped you

    yeah but with the red lights flashing not without.

    did u try to turn it on with the cd drive still out and disconnected?

    only thing i can think of it being is a prob the the onboard graphics card.

    have you still got warrenty?

    might be worth giving xbox customer support and see what they say. they have been givin extra warrenty cover because of the amount of faulty console's

XBOX 360 composite output works fine. Component

You say the component video is no good? Well this usually happens when it is wired up incorrectly, Ensure you have the right colors in the right jacks at each end, it is real easy to get mixed up... make sure Red goes to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to green, all alongside each other, NO ALSO using Component you MUST also run 2 more cables for the Audio, they are Red & White NOT the Red from the "Other" Video input, BUT the AV Red & White jacks, beside each other on the units. So all in all there are 5 cables taking the Video, 3 R, G, B. + The Audio, R & W.

A. You have the wrong inputs on your audio and video, do you know anyone who may've tampered with that? IE older brother, dad, etc.

B. Your 360 has the dark screen malfunction, but if that was the case, you should be able to hear audio.

No video output, audio output fine

Did this console work fine before, or did you just set it up and it has no video? If the console worked fine before but now it doesn't, you are likely right about the cable NOT being the true cause. However, if you've never seen a picture from your XBox360 then perhaps the cable IS the problem. You mention "all 3 video lines", leading me to believe you are using the HD A/V cable with blue, green, and red connections for video. In order to use this cable, you MUST have an HD capable TV (480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p). Try switching the A/V cable switch from HD to TV and using the yellow video plug.

No Audio for 360 Games

Hey Ap0calypse,

Well, a couple of things may have happened. Even though it sounds like you didn't touch anything.

Sometime if you run the system at a higher display setting then what a game is intended, you'll see things like this occur. For example, setting your 360 to run at 1080p, when the games' max is 720p. You will see distortion, or nothing at all, and maybe even the video, but no sound.
