Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

No video output, audio output fine

We have an xbox 360. The unit has no vidieo output, just audio. We were told to replace the cable. We don't really buy that solution, what are the chances of all 3 video output lines going bad at the same time.

Do we need a video card, a processor, or what?

    i have had exactly the same problem. ive had my xbox over two years now- with hardly any problems, then all of a sudden the image on the screen starts to become fuzzy, occasionally tinting red or green- sound was ok. i reset it, it was ok for a minute or two. then it happened again. i reset it again, then all video and sound is gone completely. i can still see that the xbox is still working because the lights flicker on startup, and when freinds sign in on xbox live. I have checked the cables and TV, they are all fine. any help will be appreciated. thanks!

Did this console work fine before, or did you just set it up and it has no video? If the console worked fine before but now it doesn't, you are likely right about the cable NOT being the true cause. However, if you've never seen a picture from your XBox360 then perhaps the cable IS the problem. You mention "all 3 video lines", leading me to believe you are using the HD A/V cable with blue, green, and red connections for video. In order to use this cable, you MUST have an HD capable TV (480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p). Try switching the A/V cable switch from HD to TV and using the yellow video plug.

Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Repair Method. I'm in the process of learning how to repair Video game consoles and I've purchased this Xbox 360 which has audio but no video output... I know all about the X-Clamp trick...


First of all, your Xbox 360 console requires both audio and video cables plugged in. 4 red rings on your Xbox 360 console should indicate this. Your best bet is sending it in to Microsoft for repair. I read your problem, and I don't quite follow what you were trying to explain. Yes, prices can be very expensive, but it is worth the money. Your Xbox 360 console will work like new again when you send it in, and they send it back to you.

XBOX 360 composite output works fine. Component


You say the component video is no good? Well this usually happens when it is wired up incorrectly, Ensure you have the right colors in the right jacks at each end, it is real easy to get mixed up... make sure Red goes to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to green, all alongside each other, NO ALSO using Component you MUST also run 2 more cables for the Audio, they are Red & White NOT the Red from the "Other" Video input, BUT the AV Red & White jacks, beside each other on the units. So all in all there are 5 cables taking the Video, 3 R, G, B. + The Audio, R & W.

Xbox 360 Video Problem


HI. Replacing the video cable would also be my first suggestion. The Xbox AV cable has many manufacturing faults. If you are using the original cable tat came with the unit, I suggest to replace it with newer model.

Now, if you experience the same issues after replacing the original AV cable, this will lead to a more serious issue that concerns the HANA chip. This chip is responsible for the transfer of information through the AV cables. The transfer port(the AV cable end that is inserted into the Xbox), is directly connected to this actual chip. If the internal connections to this chip have failed, or are failing, this will be the culprit. The chip will need to be replaced, or the solder joint will need to be resolderd. If this unit is still under warranty, I would suggest to contact Microsoft for a free repair ticket. Do Not open the case if the unit is still under the manufactures warranty. This action will void the warranty.

NOTE_ Try replacing the AV cable first.

Which wires doi use to connect up my xbox with my


In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,

For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports

If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio

Xbox 360-no audio output


You may need to go into your TV settings and turn on HDMI Audio. If this is not enabled (Typically on HDMI 1) The TV will not ask the 360 for Audio and as such won't pull it.

The Xbox 360 cannot access the internet through an ethernet cable that is connected to your laptop. You have to connect your Xbox 360 directly to your modem or to some form or router.
