For some reason when I'm playing XBOX 360 (hooked up to component 2) the outer inch and a half or so gets cut off. It's like the screen is zoomed in. I looked in the menu options, and when I try to change it from wide screen, to something else, it says not available. Please help!!! Thank you

Check all X Box games for scratches on the surface of each CD Disk. Keep in mind, each game CD is read by lens Laser from the inner then to the outer edge of CD Disk.
Most people believe CD's are played like a record, from the outer edge to the inner.
If there are scratches, CD may be damaged beyond simply cleaning. All cleaners and methods of cleaning are not the same.
Contact the manufacture of the CD to find out the best method of cleaning or possibly repairing so game can be played.
If you CAN play some games and NOT others, this rules out a Laser Lens Player fault condition. Look for a reason of the CD will not play in the Laser Lens Player.
Here is the top 5 reasons CD's will NOT play.
1.) CD in inserted into player wrong way?. 2.) CD surface is dirty or dusty?. 3.) CD is possibly warped or bent?. 4.) CD surface is scratched?. 5.) Wrong CD/ or format for CD player?. Hope this lists helps! FASTESTNASCAR
The Xbox 360 doesn't have a mechanism to hold the disk securely in place. If you tilt or move your console while a game is playing it can potentially fall out of place and get scratched while it is being read. I recommend not bumping or moving your 360 while a game or DVD is playing.
i agree with rich.but there could be a bigger problem in side. Did u check ur game for the enternal ring along the outer edge. i have had no problems with mwf2 but my x box ate up my ufc game out of nowhere left it with the ring . i got a new one and farther down the road it did it again. so i wasted 120 bucks on ufc and my xbox messed them up i never move my xbox so it could be that and i keep my system fairly dust free idk.
Could be either really, you are using the component cables that came with the console correct? The lines look identical on both screens? If so then you are on the right track but I would lean towards the xbox360 being the culprit. I would bring your 360 into a local video game store and nicely ask them if they could hook it up to one of their TVs (they have them to test consoles people trade in), with their component cables and see if they have the problem as well. If they do you know it's the xbox and not the cables, if they don't then it sounds like you have a cable problem.
The Xbox 360 is known for this. I would contact Microsoft as soon as possible.
