Re: my 360 is it broke?
Just check the av cable you are connecting the console with the tv and check tv settings for the same. i dont think you need to hold any buttons its just a cable problem what is sounds to me.. change the cable if tv is working fine or just check the connections at your friends place and make a note of that and to the same thing at your place with the same connections..

to start off,what type of cable are you using??
since you've already tried using 2diff TVs,basically its with the console
try using a different AV CABLES, if it still doesnt work,try calling xbox support hotline for possible replacement of your cable or for processing a repair for the xbox if necessary..
since you just bought your console,try going back to the store where you bought it and have it replaced, because for the repalcement of the cable if you call xbox support,it will take 8-12business days for toureceive it and 2-3weeks for the turn around time of the repair for the xbox.
Well the main solution that you're going to get from Microsoft is to unplug everything from your console and your TV and then wait a couple minutes and plug it back in while everything is off. If the problem still persists, instead of buying a new 360, try borrowing a friend's AV cable and see if that works. Try not to unplug or replug anything while the console or TV is still on. Or it could just possibly be all of the jostling around in your suitcase and nothing has come loose enough to stop working until now. Sorry I can't be more helpful, these are just some ideas.
This exact thing is happening to not only me but to also a friend of mine. You will probably notice that the fan kicks on really high and then goes to 2 flashing red lights, this is because the 360 is overheating or thinks its overheating. My friend's 360 starts up with the fan kicked on high and then only plays for a minute or 2, followed by the 2 red lights. If its under warranty send it back to Microsoft, I took mine and my friends 360 apart and replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver, but it kind of only helped a little for mine and not at all for my friends. SEND IT BACK!!!!!!
i hate to be the one to say but yes it could have. i had my FIRST 360 for 2 months before i had to exchange for a new one. hard drive problems. one i would suggest seeing if you could exchange it where you bought it at and then invest in an intercooler fan for the back of it. that is an inexpensive way to protect your investment from the heat that kills them.
