Maybe it's a bad video port on your TV. Try hooking it up on another video port on the TV. I've had this same problem because the front video port on my TV was bad. I hooked it up in the back port of the TV and it worked.

In my case the xbox is connected to the Tv via HDMI and bluray player is connected to xbox via compoent cable

How should I hook up my xbox to the back of the television using the red, white, and yellow wires? It is hooked up but I am not getting any audio. Thank you.


First make sure your video cable is set to TV not HDTV

Then plug the 3 RCA cables into the color coded slots on the TV. Make sure you aren't using the red cable from the component RGB but are using the red cable for sound (next to the white one).

Then, if you still have no picture, start the console using the controllers Xbox button and hold "Y" and "RT" until the console restarts. this will reset the video settings on the 360 to default.

Follow this guide if you get confused:

and for the video reset about halfway down the page:

How do i connect a xbox360 to the system


You can usually connect the Xbox 360 to a sound system using an optical cable, which connects to a port on the Xbox's video cable. If you use a HDMI lead with your Xbox then you will need one of these adapters to give you the optical audio port:

I'm sure you can find something similar on Amazon for your location.
Best of luck!

I tried connected my XBox 360 HDMI components to my Philips 32PT5441/37. When I did that and turned it to "CVI" it shows my screen but its not positioned right and it keeps moving up and down....


In many cases there is nothing wrong with the TV. You may need to reread the handbook for operating setup on picture centering in the Xbox instruction book. In some rare occasions you may need to upgrade the Xbox with a USB upgrade connection. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

I have succesfully connected my dynex 32" lcd hdtv 720p 60hz to my rogers digital box and my xbox but i only have room to connect my audio cables for my surround sound speakers to my tv cables there is no...


What cables are you using for the XBOX and the digital box? What surround sound system are you using (what receiver)? Which model of Dynex 32" TV do you have? Looking at the DX-L32-10A, I can connect both devices to the TV and then the audio out to the surround sound system.

If HDMI, then that will carry the audio to the TV and then you would need an audio cable from the audio out on the TV to the surround sound speakers. Similarly, if you use component video and the audio cable combination, there are 2 component video jacks and 3 audio-in jacks on the rear of the TV. Then connect another cable from the audio out of the TV to the surround sound system. (This TV has one audio out and a headphone jack.)

If you previously had the audio going from the Rogers digital box directly to the surround sound system, you need to reroute things unless there are two or more sets of audio in jacks on the surround sound system. Some surround sound system can take several HDMI in cables and then route it to the TV on a HDMI out port.

Without more information, I can't be sure of the best option for your cables.

I hope this gets you started and please provide more information for additional suggestions.

How do i connect a xbox 360 to a philips hts 3555 and hd tv?


Connect audio out cables (L and R) from HDTV to far left audio input at back of hts 3555. Then connect HDMI output from XBOX360 to HDMI input slot on TV. Setup XBOX 360 for audio through HDMI turn TV off and then on and all should be good. It worked for me.

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!
