Hi,

Is there a green light on the xbox console? have checked the AV leads properly and made sure the lead is fully pushed in to the Xbox?

Also if the AV lead supports HDTV make sure the switch is pushed to TV. Make sure that the TV itself is set to the AV input source.


If there is anything else please let me know.


Regards.

My dynex tv only shows channel not available message?


Okay- the three cables (red, white, and yellow) are called RCA plug connectors. They are commonly used to carry audio and video signals.
Plug them into your Xbox according to the color codes- red cable connector to the red socket (jacks); then white to white, and yellow to yellow.
Now connect these leads to the RCA input jacks in the back of your t.v. - maintaining the same color code connections (red to red; white to white, and yellow to yellow)
The RCA input jacks on your t.v. should be labeled with an input number, to distinguish itself from the other inputs, like HDMI, S-Video, and such.
After plugging in your Xbox to the wall outlet or surge strip, turn it on.
Turn your t.v. set on.
With the remote control that came with your t.v. set, open the menu bar, scroll to... and open the "External Output" menu.
You should see a list of [however many] inputs your particular t.v has. Scroll to the input number that the 3 RCA cables are attached to, and press that number as the default video screen.
Exit the prompts and your Xbox video screen should be displayed.

What's your problem?Im trying to hook up my xbox 360 to my JVC 27 inch TV, I installed the yellow to video input and the red and white to audio input and all get is the audio and no video. What am I...


Troubleshoot.

1. Ensure yellow is actually connected to an "input" slot.

2. Ensure TV is set to the correct input source.

3. Ensure your yellow, white and red RCA connectors are grouped in a single input source to TV. Sometimes the "component" and "composite" inputs are grouped closely together.

4. Consult the TV manual for hookup instructions.

5. Conduct a continuity test on the yellow xbox wire with a multi-meter.

Best setup for Xbox 360 for Sony 32" Tube WEGA tv


Hi, Not sure whether you are kidding or not. You don't mention the tv model so I will try to help using a KV-32FS100 as an example. You really only have 2 choices assuming you have a current model xbox 360. The component cable that comes with the xbox has 6 connectors, a green, blue, red, yellow on one part and a white and red on the other part. On the back of the tv below and to the right of the s video connector are inputs labeled Y, Pb and Pr and are colored Y is green Pb is Blue and Pr is red if they aren't colored that is the correct order. Don't connect the yellow to anything. The red and white on the other part of the cable go directly to the right of these connections. It will say audio and L and R they should also be colored but if not white is L and red is R. There is also a small switch at the xbox end of the cablewhich you need to slide to HDTV. Once you are powered up don't forget to enter the setup menu on the xbox and select the settings for your tv. Again without knowing the model most wega tvs limit the component input to 480p which was the limit of a dvd. I hope this is helps.

Black and White Only


I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.

FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.
