If you mean to say that you HAVE audio but DO NOT have video. IF IT IS UNDER WARRANTY SEND IT IN!
This is a common problem with XBOX 360 and you can repair it by doing an xclamp replacement or by removing the xclamps, tighten all nuts on the heat-sync and applying new thermal paste etc., and replacing teh xclamps. Your choice and there are plenty of videos online to show you how.
FYI- use nylon washers on ther board and DO NOT use ceramic based thermal paste, use a "silver based" for high heat. Also, locking washers instead of the standard metal you'll see in most vids keep teh heat-sync from getting loose down the road. just make sure they are 1mm or 1/32 thick, and watch multiple videos before you choose one to follow. This helps to elimintate poster's "guess work"

    I'm not really sure about this X-Clamp, to tell you the truth I'm in the process of repairing an Xbox-360 that has the same problem as the poster's... I've gone through many videos on youtube but so few do make sense to me. First of all, I've seen cell phone repairers heat up the IC's and chips on the boards inside with heat guns fitted with nozzles. My dad, who's an electronics technicians, says that it makes perfect sense to heat up the chips because if there's a loose connection then you have to reestablish it by melting the solder. He also says that maybe you could press down a bit on the GPU while it's hot. The X-Clamp only applies pressure on cracked solder joints and it doesn't solve the problem. So many people spill ******** on the web that I can't really follow the right method.

How do I connect my lg drt389h dvd recorder to my ferguson fl26wx1 tv. I can play dvd's but i'm unable to record anything from my sky box.

Hi, When you bought your DVD player it comes with 1 type of cable. RCA type cable 2 audio and 1 video. Yellow for video and red and black for audeo. Your TV should have RCA plugs on back and match them up with DVD player. Most DVD player now come with optical out put, TV must have input to complete. If you have that you can get better sound from them. Good luck
