Re: No Picture with sound

Make sure the setting on the av cable is for tv or hdtv, whatever type of tv your using. I hit that switch so many times, its a pain.

Still not working, disconnect all cables then reconnect.

I can bet you that your xbox 360 is vertical? am I right? If no then my disk holder gets jammed a lot, so i would get 2 small flat head screwdrivers and pry it open. So put your xbox 360 horizontal. This would also fix the problem. If your son still has the language screwed up u have to learn some spanish or watever it is to figure out how to put it back. It would be on profile settings.

Hi Mom, the bad news is your sons X-box is in need of an x-clamp replacement. It happens when the x-box gets too hot and causes the clamps to warp. The good news is that it is a fairly common problem and is usually relatively inexpensive to fix. I would recommend finding a game store who repairs these in your area.

Make sure all the tv picture and audio cables are plugged in fully, if not fully plugged in, the cables can not work at all. If that doesn't work, consider sending it to microsoft or get new cables.

Sound But No Picture

This Just happened to me. There seems to be a lot of solder issues with the 360. I bit the bullet and tried the towel trick, where you over heat the 360 for about 20 min. I Let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.
