    Over the last one or two times I have played my XBOX 360, I was noticing graphic issues, then last night, I went to turn on the game and the same thing happened. I reset the game only this time I got sound but a black screen. I tried plugging into different A/V ports on my TV, and still the same thing: Sound, no picture. I then tried hooking up to an entirely different TV, this time, nothing. Do I have a dead XBOX360? Bad cables? Please HELP!

If you were noticing graphical artifacts on the screen before this issue occurred, and then your system blacked out you likely burned out the video card. I've heard of this happening many times and usually the first sign of impending failure is crazy graphics issues, usually followed by a random shutdown and failure to start the graphics after the crash.

You likely need to have the system serviced. You'll need to contact microsoft and hopefully they can help you out.

I have no picture but hear the sound of the system on my tv


It could be 3 things:

Your tv connections are disconnected and need to be replaced. See if anything else works when plugged into these connections.

Your cable cord could have a disconnect internally and the cord needs replaced.

Your graphics card on you XBOX 360 is shot any you need to replace it.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.

Memory or video Issue?


Try unplugging everything and letting it sit for a few minutes. 10 is a good safe number. Plug everything back in and try again. If this doesn't work, you have a serious issue that microsoft needs to address and fix.

Im thinking about getting a Turtle beach Headset X3 but..


The white and red connections are for audio left and audio right (respectively). If you use only the white, you'll only hear the left channel audio, not both left and right.

My Xbox 360 is in black and white, it also has no sound!!


The problem could lie in the audio video cable or Hdmi cable. Try replacing that or even taking the 360 back for a new one. If thats not the solution then it could be the input on your tv.

No screen on the Xbox 360


right do the towel trick it works. wrap the 360 in 2 towels and leave it on for 15 mins. then go bk to your xbox un wrap it. put it near a window if possible ( i did and its working fine) due to it being near a window you will get no overheating and its well ventilated.
