Re: xbox 360

This is a common problem with the graphics card. It's unusual you don't have the "red ring of death" with three of the four lights flashing around the power button. But it's either that or you damaged the A/V port or is it possible that your TV's the issue? Try plugging a known working unit into your TV, like your friends 360, and see if it clears up.

Xbox 360, 3-4 yrs old, suddenly no picture, only sound. Can you help advise how to fix it? TV (new, with HD, LED etc), says mode not supported, or No signal found, although connected. Sound comes through,...

If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Stop the heat to the scaler chip and you will have it working.

My sons xbox 360 dosn't read that any cables have been connected

Since you already exhausted all the steps to isolate the problem, The probable causes of this issue is the AV PORT is faulty.

You might wanna contact xbox customer support to check the warranty status of your console, hope you still have warranty so that you can send it in for free.. Goodluck

Xbox 360

If it has a hdmi cable and you or a friend has a tv compatible try and get a picture from their.
It sound that you might have a faulty cord for the video, or possibly the video drive has gone out on the 360, witch is a reported problem on many consoles.

Try to use b/g/r or the hdmi.
Is your switch on the correct location?
Av or High deff.

Good luck

Xbox 360 sound problem

HDMI carrys no sound you still need to have the audio cables from the component plugged into the tv. If this doesnt do the trick you should call MS or check your TV's settings maybe there is a special function when using that resolution. Hope this helps.
