    I have done some further research into your problem,
    (it helps to have had the same problem appear on my bench!)
    This is repairable but unfortunately not by your average curious hobbyist.
    I would recommend that that you send the units back to microsoft for repair. if you have broken the warranty seal the post here again and i will tell you where to send the unit for repair in America or Australia, depending on where you live that is!

Bluray movie playes sound but no picture, HDCP problem?

In order to provide the proper solution to this, I need to know how this unit is connected to the TV. Also, when using the PS3 in game mode, do you get both picture and sound? What is the make and model of the TV involved here?

There are a number of reasons for the loss of picture. I will assume that you have selected the correct video input and video type. But for confirmation, please provide those details as well. Once you update this, I will try to give you an explanation and potential solutions.

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
