As you have tried new wires, if you have some other TV at your place or some friend's place you may try connecting this xbox 360 to that TV and check if the monitor is compatible and to see whether the fault is with the TV or console.
However, I would suggest you to go through the following link, as it explains complete procedure to narrow down and troubleshoot the issue with pictures in it.
Do not open the console, as it could void your warranty.
Further here is a link to customer care department of xbox 360

SOURCE: have had xbox wired up with no problems to tv

even though it does not 3rrod or any other error it seems to me to be a similar fault, ive repaired consoles that have had no audio and video OR no video but still had sound.

its the same sort of fix as 3rrod but requires a proper reflow of the gpu, cpu and ana chips etc.

we can fix this for you np for £40 which includes return delivery to your door AND vat. we can also dig out some guides if you want to attempt the repair yourself.

Yes this is the CPU and the GPU, but also the display chip, the scaler chip overheating, you can fix it yourself or send it in to have it fixed.

Trying to hook up xbox 360

You should have 3 wires. 1 is for video and the other 2 are for the audio. The wires should have them labeled. Once plugged into tv. You will need to change the input until you see xbox game. New tv's have multiple input channels. So u may have to try different inputs. Also you need to make sure the the wires are in grouped inputs on the back of the tv. Let me know if u have any questions.

Cant see anything but you can hear it

it is most likely your tv, try using a different tv to test or i could be av leads, try new leads if its not the tv. some old tvs get loose plugs so the sound may work without the picture or vice versa.
hope this helps

Try a new video cable from the XBOX to TV or check another source like a DVD player to the TV thru the same Vid 2 input. You either have a bad cable, bad video section on your XBOX or a bad input on your TV. Hope this helps

My xbox wont show on my tv,cant hear sound but no

It's possible that your Xbox is sending out a picture that's higher resolution than your TV can display. Try reducing the resolution of the Xbox video output.
