Emerson LCD HDTV 19 inch won't connect to Xbox 360
We tried to plug the new xbox 360 to the new Emerson HDTV, with the Component HD AV cable and we followed the directions, but when we turned the switch to HDTV the picture stayed blue and we could hear the sound of the video game playing. However, when I moved the cable to the S-video input jack and changed the switch to just t.v. it came on. Does this mean we are not seeing the game displayed in High Definition? Your prompt response is appreciated. Thanks!

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360
Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.
Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."
Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on
Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.
Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.
Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.
Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.
Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.
Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.
your HD settings may be too high, go to "display settings and change them, if your not on an HD tv, change the output to "TV" on the AV cord where it connects to your xbox, if you Are on an HD tv make sure the output is set to "HDTV" on the AV cord where it connects to your xbox, there is a little switch on the side that slides left to right
Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.
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!
Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then
reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping
the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the
end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and
then try the AV Pack again.
If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red
lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have
I have it and it works great!
For all TVs, the TV have to be on fixed settings on standard, dot-by-dot mapping, noise reduction off. The camera's exposure the same for both side-by-side shots.
Just set it on standard and it should work...
