Try another cable. If that doesn't work, then try it on another TV. If that doesn't work, then make sure the cables are in all the way.

I connected my xbox to an HD TV and now I can't get the video to work on the older TVs. How do I get the video to work?

If you are using the A/V cable that comes with the pro or elite unit, the cables that have the red/blue/green in addition to the yellow/red/white, there is a switch on the connector that plugs into the console. This switch has two positions, TV and HDTV. make sure the switch is in the TV position.

Hi 4 yo x box 360 turns on fine with normal

If you are using the component cables, assuming it's the same cables that came with it 4 years ago, there is a little switch on the part that hooks up to the Xbox360. The two options are HD and Regular. Try moviing that switch to the other position. Also try another tv, friends or family if you don't have another one. Also, if you have a friend with a 360, swap out the component cables as these have been known to go bad after a while.

XBOX not connecting to LG flatscreen -no visuals only sound

There is a switch on the cable where it plugs into the XBOX that says HDTV/TV please make sure that it is set to HDTV when using component connectors.

When connecting XBOX live to LG flatscreen there is no video only

There should be a switch on the cable that says HDTV/TV if you are using component connections, make sure that the switch is set to HDTV.

X box looks like it starts up but the screen will stay blank

Check the status of the "HD" switch on the side of the video connector, nearest to the Xbox. I have the same non-HDMI Xbox. If I have it hooked up via component to a non-HD TV, and the switch is on "HD", it will show no video.

Xbox360 video doesn't work

make sure you are using the right cables and that if you have the HD cable you have set the switch to the correct setting. If you are using the composite cable (red white yellow) try plugging it into a different port if the TV has it. If you are using component (red green blue) make sure the switch is set to HD.
