No video or sound.

This is usually caused by a bad graphics card on the xbox. It isn't always detected by the xbox motherboard. I'm sorry to say, but it's pretty much toast unless you can find a repair guy in your area to solder on a new vga card.

Xbox 360 elite won't play any games

Did you try to see if your tv's hdmi/component cable input(s) are working properly? Try another device to see if it works. Then check your cables and make sure all of them are pluged in at the right place and securely in. If it still doesn't work, then contact Microsoft because it's an internal error. Also it wouldn't hurt to unplug everything from the 360 and repluging it. Microsoft always says that as a first troubleshoot.

If you have an Xbox 360 Elite or a newer Xbox 360 Premium, you should use an HDMI cable if your TV supports it. Otherwise use a component cable.

Xbox 360 hdmi cable

Make sure both the xbox and tv are on and tv is on HDMI source. It won't recognize each other unless xbox is turned on and tv is set to the correct source.
