    anyone know if there are fuses in the xbox360 directly related to the vidoe output?... I have one here that the guy says he can hear sound but no video.. So far i tested it on both regular T.V. and the HDTV connections and got no sound or video either way... so of course I thought it was the cabe but they said they tried another cable and had the same result. so I took it apart and am looking inside... I checked the pins inside the port where the video cable plugs in and they appear to all be straight and clean, so I think it must be something in the motherboard, hopefully a fuse... I found a couple of on-board fuses side by side and a third real close to the socket. all labeled "o" but they all tested ok. so does anyone know where i should look next? Any help would be appreciated

    I am having the exact same problem, and since I can't find the solution, My 360 is chilling in the corner looking sad and stripped down. If anyone could help us figure out why the audio works, but not the video, it would be much appreciated.

    Yeah, the switch is fine. Plus I have tried more than one set of AV cables. Still nothing...

Yeah, I was just trying to avoid the heat gun fix. I don't feel like buying one just for this problem and I heard it is only a temp fix. Oh well, it is better than nothing. Thanks dochera. I hope this works.

Ok i solved the problem. here is what i did!
I took the whole thing apart. and removed the heatsinks from the processor and video chip. I then used a heat gun to re-heat the components on the motherboard. paying close attention to the areas around each processing chip... (this is a delicate procedure becasue you have to heat it up enough for the solder to melt but it you heat it too quickly the components can actually pop-off and shoot across the room then you'd be screwed. its happended to me before on a ps2.) so you have to heat it slowly but thouroughly again paying extra close attention to the area around the processors since this is where most of the heat is generated when the unit runs... I also worked the area around the video port. I then used a small blade to remove the thermal contact cement on the processors and heatsinks... I had some new thermal grease I bought fro an electronics store. I spread a liberal amount on each prcessor and heat sink then re-attached them and put everythng back together... BOO- YA~! works great! had. If anyone wants this service perfomed fro them I can do it for $40 plus shipping.. No gurantee it will solve the poroblem, but it worked for me. I've worked with game systems for ten years now through which is currently offline.

Godd luck everyone

I know it is simple, but did you make sure the switch on the video cable was set to the appropriate setting? It must be TV for regular tv or HDTV for HD tv set.

I can hear people i just cant talk to them

A few reasons for not being able to talk through the mic is that if parental settings are set. Parental settings can stop you from talking and, if set right, can stop you from hearing other people, which isn't the problem. It could also be that the mic on the headset is broken. If it is, you will have to buy a new one. Try using someone else's headset. If theirs works, then it confirms that it is only your headset. If it doesn't, it might mean that either your Xbox 360 remote isn't working right for voice, or parental settings are restricting you from that action.

Cant talk to other characters.

It sounds like a game glitch, but you should try checking your options in the start menu. If it's not any of your settings, save and reset the game. There are characters (like at Castle Town) that are unimportant characters that you can't talk to anyways.

Try changing the channels to that part of the TV that you were talking about, or press a certain button to go to that part of the TV.
