My xbox's video is not working, the sound works, ive tried diffent TVs but still does NOT WORK!!!!

Have you tried different cables? If you're using AV Cables (the red, yellow, and white cables) then there might be something wrong with the yellow cable (the video cable). The best thing that you could probably do is simply just buy another one. Or you can try an HDMI cable for better quality sound and picture. But the HDMI cable is only compatible with TVs that support HDMI. You can find cheap HDMI cables online, I just bought a 6 ft. cable for only $4.

PS3 static on screen

It sounds like you're carrying interference to your TV. Try moving you station away from any power source. Make sure your hdmi cable is away from any power as well. This may also be a ground issue. Plug your ps3 power brick into a different outlet.

My sound is messed up

There is a possibility it may be your TV. I had an issue with my console where the sound would only come on 50% of the time. I figured it was a console issue, but when I bought a better TV, the sound issue went away. I have been using an HDMI cable & 1080p TV since I bought the PS3. So, try a different TV. If that doesn't work, comment back under this heading & we'll try another angle, ok?

Ps3 HDMI cable no audio

You might want to try another HDMI cable...the one you have may have a short in it. You can find HDMI cables for really cheap online so it's not a big deal to buy on eor two more as back up. Also, try changing the audio settings with in the BluRay or DVD itself. Sometimes the movies can default to an unsuppotred audio format.

Rocketfish hdmi no sound

Have you tried another cable? Try this one from Amazon:
For future reference there is no difference between a 70$ hdmi cable and a 5$ one unless you are going through walls or over 25 feet.

Play station 3 hdmi-dvi

Yes you can. It will not be like a HDMI cable but it will be better than the RCA. Your image will be in your HDTV (1920 × 1080). But you will have to buy a HDMI cable and and HDMI-DVI adaptor. You will not have sound so you will have to connect either your RCA or if you have a Digital Optical Audio sounds better.

If you have any questions just ask.

Good luck!
