Re: no visual on tv through 360

Do you have sound? and what are the cables set on HDTV or TV? If its set to HDTV and you dont have an HDTV then the picture will just be snowy and you will hear the sound of that game, just no picture. If this isnt it then it is your scaler chip which is an issue that MS needs to take care of or if you have a replacement plan you can use that as well.

I Am having blury games on my Xbox 360

There are many reasons for blurry screen on Xbox 360. If the problem is a particular game than, just try playing some another game. And if the problem is with all than the issue is most likely related to a setting on your television or to the connection between your Xbox 360 console and your television. You will want to make sure that AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV. Make sure that the AV cable is not loose or incorrectly seated in both the Xbox 360 console and the TV. Also, make sure that you have the correct AV cable for your TV.

No screen but sound works perefectly

There might be a problem with the AV cables (Audio Visual) or theres more then 1 port for the AV cables to go. If there's more then one AV station on the TV try switching to the other ones.

We turn the tv and xbox on but there is no picture. We can hear the xbox power up and the tv works otherwise, but no visual for games.

is there sound? check the connections in the back of the tv. if you get red lights on the xbox, then it means a cable is loose some where. check the av swith on the av cord connected to the 360.

Xbox 360 Console, Faulty, NO DISPLAY!!??

What do you mean, no display? Is is game-related display issues? Have you checked the AV cable connection? Or is it about the settings? Is this the first time that you are going to connect your xbox console?

To determine whether the display issues are specific to a particular game, try playing a different game to see whether the same symptom occurs. Reminder, some Xbox original games that were released for the original Xbox console may show some display issues when you play them on the Xbox 360 console.

Next, make sure that AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV. To verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, you can disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices. Note: If you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings. If you try to set HDTV settings, you may lose the picture.

You might also want to check your TV's settings because some display issues can be caused by how the TV is set up. To make sure that this is not the case, please check your TV's settings.

In your TV's settings, you should check the following:
- Make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or NTSC)
- If your Xbox 360 console is a PAL console, set your PAL settings to PAL 60
- If your TV has a type of picture compensation enabled, disable it
- If your TV's settings are correct, you may want to try using a different TV, if you have one available. Try connecting your Xbox 360 console to another TV to see whether the same display issues occur

Next, reset your Xbox 360 console. To reset the display settings to the default settings, follow these steps:
1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
2. Turn off the console.
3. Turn on the console.
4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time.

No picture or sound on the tv

where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

Red Lights

Hello misspay,

According to Microsoft Support, the 4 red lights mean the Audio-Visual (AV) cable is not connected or plugged into your Xbox 360 correctly. Please make sure the AV cable is connected correctly to your Xbox 360. To do this, disconnect the AV cable and firmly connect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.

I hope this fixes your problem here is a link that will provide you with more solutions to try and fix the issue.
