Xbox 360 picture problem

I have recently purchased a new hd tv the picture seems very dark and has a green tinge to the colour, I have tried changing the settings on the tv but to no avail, Xbox seemed ok on previous crt tv but has this problem got anything to do with last online update?
Also there seems to be a buzz when screen frames change when playing a dvd.
The tv is fine on its own and standalone dvd player also works fine.
What have I done wrong if anything i.e setup!

My Xbox 360 shows a grey screen, the sound works fine and i do have picture


Hey dude, I had this problem and found a solution on another website. Basically, I had either changed the display settings on my tv, or it had done it by itself or my new ps3 had done it or whatever, but to fix it I went into the TV menu, went to display options, on my tv it has something entitled 'Colour system' I changed that to PAL-60 and I now have colour, just to give you an idea of whether you have the same problem, try setting your x-box display to pal-50 and see if that shows colour (if it's easier to do), if it does then try then solution above! Hope it helps!

You may need to change your HD settings on the back of the console ( HD setting is actually on cord ) I had that issue when I first went online w/360 . If that does not help u know X box costumer support will repair any damaged system prob. no cost and does'nt take as long as they say.

No sound or video on HD and TV modes


I would see if the cable is the issue. If not, you may have a nice new paperweight. Microsoft should fix this for $100 or you could buy a brand new one for $200.

I had this same issue with XBOX 360 #3.

Picture problem


Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio , video/Picture 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. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem.

Have sound no picture and 2 green rings around power button


They are green?!? usualy when people have problems with  the xbox 360 hardware, the lights turn red. This xbox 360 may have a birth defect... Best thing to do is call 1800-4my-xbox. Talk to a representative about sending your xbox in, ONLY if you have not voided the warranty. If so, you will most likely have to buy a new xbox or new motherboard for it.
Also try changing your video settings to tv instead of hd, or hd if it is plugged into a hd tv. You might have toggled the HD switch on the video/audio chords.

Poor picture quality on a HDTV.


When playing on HDTV's i think you have to have the HD Scart, these are £19.99 in Game and Gamestation. however i have seen them cheaper in PC World i think they where £14.99 (could have been cheaper).
I would try purchasing these connections because the standard connections are only made for normal TV's
Good luck

HDTV Problem


there shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component Use the following colours into your tv:- Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs. Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings
