Re: xbox 360 no picture

Try looking on your AV Cable there is a setting for HDTV and TV if you have a High Definition tv use that setting but by the sounds of your issue i would say you dont and would go with the regular TV setting. Its right on the neck of the AV cable where it plugs into the game console. Let me know if this works for you.

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:

Have got no picture on my tv xbox 360 is loading

you probably have a broken video or hdmi cable. somtimes the cables can even break at the connections or under the plastic coating, making the video going from your xbox to your tv not work.

My Xbox 360 will not show a picture you can hear the sound but there is no picture.

1) make sure the video cable is firmly inserted into the back of your xbox 360. Sometimes a loose connection will produce this result.

2) Check the end to your television set and make sure it is in correctly. Is this HDMI ??

3) Cycle the inputs on your tv until it gets back to your xbox 360 and see if the picture appears.

4) If you have this hooked up via HDMI, connect it through another method and go into the video settings in your xbox 360 dashboard and set them to auto detect.

Let me know if this helps.

Cannot get picture just sound when i hook up my xbox elite system

Double check TV is on video 1,2,3 same for 360s yellow video out.
If then you still have audio only ,the G.P.U has open connections
form the video feed to the mother board
Solution, you must have the G.P.U re-clamp to the main board.
That Works. 99% of the time.

My xbox 360 turns on with 4 green lights but i can not see any picture or sound

it sounds as if you have a connection unhooked or loose somewhere. Double check all audio and video cables are secure and in the correct position. If that doesn't work try troubleshooting by trying a different tv or removing all connections from tv and xbox and re-hooking everything back up.

Sound but no picture

On some av cables for the Xbox 360 there is a switch on the cable itself where it plugs into the Xbox that must be in the correct position. I hope this helps you.

Xobox 360 problem

First check if the cable is OK, then also check if the switch on the cable is in HDTV or TV deppends on your TV, then if all is fine, then you'll have to check inside the xbox and see if the heatsink of the GPU has thermal compound on it. If not put something like ARTIC themal compound on it, and see if that works. Hope it help.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting

Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?
