Had exactly the same problem - visuals turning green then none at all but still getting sound. Only thing that has worked well for me is using the towels to wrap xbox in and leaving them on for about twenty minutes. have to do this around every second to third time we use the 360

You could try switching the cables from HD to Reg. Other then that it might be a Video short in the Television.

Hi, this is caused from your GPU unit becoming too warm, this has 3 types of reactions when it gets either loses video,but has sound or has video and no sound, or it severe cases it will give you the RROD. The best way to fix this is take it to a repair shop and have them replace the x-clamps and thermal compund. It is a relatively inexpensive repair to have done.

My Xbox 360 is in black and white, it also has no sound!!

The problem could lie in the audio video cable or Hdmi cable. Try replacing that or even taking the 360 back for a new one. If thats not the solution then it could be the input on your tv.

Video problems

I would check to see if the AV cord you have is set to HDTV or reg TV if you dont have a HDTV then your setting needs to be on TV.

Trying to use the HDTV will give you this issue where you here sound but no video.

The setting is on the neck where you plug it into the xbox360.
