No sound or video on HD and TV modes

I would see if the cable is the issue. If not, you may have a nice new paperweight. Microsoft should fix this for $100 or you could buy a brand new one for $200.

I had this same issue with XBOX 360 #3.

Have sound no picture and 2 green rings around power button

They are green?!? usualy when people have problems with  the xbox 360 hardware, the lights turn red. This xbox 360 may have a birth defect... Best thing to do is call 1800-4my-xbox. Talk to a representative about sending your xbox in, ONLY if you have not voided the warranty. If so, you will most likely have to buy a new xbox or new motherboard for it.
Also try changing your video settings to tv instead of hd, or hd if it is plugged into a hd tv. You might have toggled the HD switch on the video/audio chords.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture

you may have already checked this but is the switch on your video cable set to the right output type? There is HD and TV so you may have it set to the wrong one. Hope it's that simple...

Xbox 360- no sound/picture but seems to be on

This is a long-shot but...

If you can,using a different Tv. check the 360's video output settings ( Dashboard, My Xbox section, System settings?) -Maybe it updated at some point and automatically changed the original settings. Some( if not all ) 360's have a specific setting for HD output.

Also, check the Video/audio output cable from your Xbox to Tv, for a while some 360s came with a cord that could be changed between Component and RCA.

No picture or sound on the tv

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!

Xbox 360 Elite compatible with 62' Mitsubishi HDTV?

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...
