Your heat sink has come un-glued from the video chip.

You need to open the box, and re glue it on.

The process is doable but very involved.

You will need to go to radio shack and buy the "glue"

Its not glue at all actually its called Atric Silver and its a paste that creates

teh contact between the video chip and the heat sink that sits on top of it.

When the heat sink pops off ( due to torqed board) the chip goes into thermal protection as it over heats and you loose video.

email me for more details.

Xbox 360 static lines no picture, but sounds,


Log in to your XBox live account and sign up to return your box for service. Even if it is out of warranty Microsoft has been fixing them for free including covering shipping. Our box just went through, took 11 days total.

My xbox 360 has sound but no picture. I tried the overheating with a towel and it worked for about 10 minutes. Now I have sound but no picture again.


It needs to be fixed, the right way.

If it's still under warranty, microsoft.

If not most shops and dudes on craigslist do it for $40.

Or you can go diy for about $10-15

My xbox shows no picture but has sound


This might not help everybody but it might be a cheap fast solution to the "Xbox 360 no picture but sound ok" problem. I have old refurbished 360 that has had no problems at all. SInce I got it have used it with powerwave cooler attached to the back. This cooler has seperate Outputs for Vga, SVga, audio, component and av. Don't need the microsoft cable at all just standard cables. Always had it plugged in with VGA or SVGA cables and got great picture. I bought new 360 and put the old one in bedroom with old tv which only has av inputs. Got shocking picture that was unwatchable but sound was good. Tried all ways but no different. Seems the xbox plug has problems. If you get the powerwave cooler it splits the xbox output socket in to seperate outputs for everything so you can use it with Vga or Svga cables if your tv has those inputs and it should work fine. Only seems to be the standard AV outputs that have problems. Haven't tried the componet leads but I guess they might work as well. If you only have the old yellow, red and white AV inputs on your tv this wont help you but if you have the other types of inputs it might fix it. The powerwave cooler you should be able to buy for under $20 so it could be a cheap solution for this problem everyone seems to be getting lately. It works for me at least so get one and give it a try.

We have sound but no picture on the xbox 360


The first thing to try is to remove the external hard-drive from your Xbox and see if the picture comes back. If that doesn't work you may have the video resolution of the Xbox set too high for your TV to display. Try reducing the Xbox resolution and see if you can get a picture. There is a switch at the end of the cable where it plugs into the Xbox that says TV and HDTV. Try setting it to TV. If you know someone with another Xbox 360 that you can borrow you can use it to debug your problem. If their Xbox works on your TV try swapping out the cables. You can see if your Xbox works with their cables and if their Xbox works with your cables. You should be able to narrow your problem down to either the Xbox, the cables, or the TV setup.

Xbox 360 with no picture


Follow the steps below, Hope this helps

1. Try another Av cable ( Audio video Cable )

2. Try another television

3. If the steps dont work, call xbox customer support to have your xbox serviced. Good Luck! hope your console still has warranty

The main reason why its acting that way its possible that the AV PORT is faulty or its your cables..

Make sure all the tv picture and audio cables are plugged in fully, if not fully plugged in, the cables can not work at all. If that doesn't work, consider sending it to microsoft or get new cables.

Sound But No Picture


This Just happened to me. There seems to be a lot of solder issues with the 360. I bit the bullet and tried the towel trick, where you over heat the 360 for about 20 min. I Let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.
