On most TV's nowadays you have to put the TV into Auxiliary or Aux mode. Most TV's with that Feature have a separate button on the TV itself, and/or on the remote control marked Aux, or Video, or Game or something to that effect. Usually you know its in that mode by a completely blue screen, or completely black screen.

Also, recheck your connections to make sure your Video and Audio inputs are matching the color coded input ports in the back/side of the TV. In a poorly lit room its very easy to fudge the connection color-codings. Also make sure the cable is firmly connected to the back of the X-Box and that the Selector switch is set to Standard Defition-TV if only 3 of your Composite cables are hooked up. Or if all of them are plugged in and you have an HDTV, that the selector switch is set to HDTV.

Hey, I am a mom with no idea what I need to get to set up xbox live. We have an xbox 360 but have no clue what I need to purchase to have xbox live

first off you need an xbox live subscription to use xbox live. Also I am assuming you have a broadband connection. So the best way is to purchase a router and then hook up your computers and xbox to that router via ethernet cable. Here are two links that should help you:

Thank you,

No power supply to xbox

This not somthing you can repair yourself, if it's not the fuse then the external power supply looks to be faulty.
If you know anyone who has an xbox, ask if you could either try their power supply of if they could use yours just to make sure that nothing in the xbox is pulling down the voltage this way you know for sure that this is where the problem is.
As for the return to the shop hopefully you used a credit card if so take down your bill showing the purchase, this will do the trick!.

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen

If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 hdmi cable

Make sure both the xbox and tv are on and tv is on HDMI source. It won't recognize each other unless xbox is turned on and tv is set to the correct source.
