Your tv could have a losse connection on the video input. Try moving it around to see if you get any picture. Either that or u need a new audio video cord for your console

How to Connect XBOX 360

e2fbfe3.jpg
This is the back of the Xbox 360. The ports for the power cable, A/V cable, and ethernet cable are pretty easy to find. When you set up your Xbox 360, make sure it is in a well ventilated area that is free of dust. Dust and overheating are the two main causes of problems in electronics so choosing the right placement for your Xbox 360 is important.

This is the standard Xbox 360 A/V cable that comes with the premium version of the Xbox 360. The wide silver end connects to your Xbox 360 while the other end connects to your TV. The Yellow (video) cable is for standard, non-HDTV sets. You will also use the Red+White audio cables for a standard set. If you have a newer TV or an HDTV set, you can use the Red+Green+Blue video connections along with the Red+White audio connections.

This shot shows what the back of most TVs look like. If you have a standard TV, you'll only have the Yellow+Red+White connections. If you have a newer TV or HDTV, you should have the same connections that are shown in the pic. This step isn't too hard since the cables from the Xbox 360 and ports on the back of your TV are all color-coded.

If, and only if, you have an HDTV and want to use your Xbox 360 in 480p, 720p, or 1080i resolutions you have to slide a little switch over on your A/V cable. On the end of the A/V cable that connects to the Xbox 360, there is a little switch that you'll need to click over. If you do not have an HDTV, you can skip this step.

Now that you have the audio/video cables connected, the next step is to hook up the power supply. Connect the two parts as shown in the picture and then connect the "power brick" end to your Xbox 360 and the other end to a wall outlet. The big power brick needs plenty of ventilation just like the main system so try to have an open space on a shelf for it. It is not recommended that you set it on the carpet.

6e1ba0c.jpg
Once you have everything hooked up, you are ready to go. Press the large circular power button to get things started. If you have a wired controller, plug it into a USB port behind the little USB door. If you have a wireless controller, hold the silver "X" button in the middle of the controller until the upper left quadrant of the system power button as well as the ring around the "X" button on the controller light up. If it doesn't light up, press the controller connect button on the Xbox 360 as well as the connect button on the top of the controller.
If this is the first time the system has been used, you'll have to go through an onscreen setup process. This is simply setting up your player profile, choosing HDTV settings if available, and/or signing up for Xbox Live service. The system walks you through everything.
Now you are ready to play.

The xbox is working but there is no picture


Welcome to fixya



I have a solution for this

PLEASE follow these same procedures to connect your xbox



The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most TVs or VRCs. First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well. If you are unable to find a set of yellow, red, and white AV inputs on the back of your TV, try looking on the sides, top, and bottom of the TV. Look for any hidden panels or doors as well. Connecting to a Television Audio/Video (AV) inputs are typically located on the back of the TV, but occassionally are on the sides, top, or bottom. Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN. Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT. Don't see these inputs on your TV? Click here. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console Insert the DC plug on the Wii AC Adapter cord into the DC Input connector on the back of the Wii console. Insert the AC plug into a 120V AC wall outlet CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match the wide blade of the plug to the wide slot and insert fully into the outlet. Plug the transformer into the wall outlet. The Sensor Bar can be placed either above or below your TV screen. Decide which option best fits you and click the image below for additional set up help, including mounting the Sensor Bar and proper alignment.

Light is on and green but no video coming out to television what might be the problem.


Typically, this problem occurs if the audio/video (A/V) cable is not connected correctly, or if the A/V cable is faulty.

Solution 1: Set the television or monitor to the correct input
Make sure that the TV or monitor is set to the correct input for the console. Check the TV or monitor's manual to see how to configure the video inputs, or try to use the console on a different TV or monitor.

Solution 2: Connect the A/V cable securely
Sometimes, you can insert the A/V cable far enough to prevent any red lights from flashing on the Xbox 360 console but not far enough for the console to transmit images or sounds to the screen.

Solution 3: Switch the Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable to the correct setting
Make sure that the TV/HDTV switch on the cable is set correctly.
  • For standard-definition TVs with only the yellow connector plugged in, set the switch to TV.
  • For high-definition TV or monitors with the red, blue, and green connectors plugged in, set the switch to HDTV.

CONNECTING XBOX 360 TO A LCD PANASONIC VIERA TV


You need to Connect via, the Component Video, the xables are Blue, Red, Green, ALL Video, and go color to color, from, Xbox to TV, and you Select EXTERNAL INPUT, on TV. OR You must use the Composite, Video, which is Yellow, for Video, again, cables go color to color. The Audio, as you have discovered, is Red & White. Now, if using HDMI, you do not usually need the Red 7 White audio, as it's all in the one signal, though the HDMI. Again, you select the relevant, INPUT On the TV, And also select the output on the Xbox, and you should be all OK.

My xbox 360 dosent give video


Plug in the Yellow A/V connection to your TV's Video input. or if you have the HD cable you have to have the Green, Blue, Red, pluged in to get video, and then the White and Red for the Audio. (HD cable will not work at all on a A/V input on a TV.) HD cables have 2 red plugs, 1 is for audio, and the other is for video, they should be labeled to tell you what one is what, but if they are not, if you flaten the cords, the Audo White plug will separate the 2 reds, and the one that is between the White and either the Green or Blue plug is the other video.
If thats not it, I couldnt tell you, unless you have a bad connection on the back of your 360, or just a bad xbox.

I have audio but no video whyen a disc is


Turn off all devices in the video chain, INCLUDING your Xbox.
Unplug and re-plug ALL connectors, making certain that they all go in all the way.
Turn on everything.
If that does not fix it, then something is busted.
Remove anything between the TV and the Xbox and try it again.
If that does not work, either the TV or the Xbox is busted.
Try hooking up a DVD player to the SAME EXACT TV input.
If that works, your Xbox is busted, go buy a new one.
If that fails, go buy a new TV or try using another input on that TV.

Black and White Only


I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.

FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.
