I've tryed a different TV iv tryed different cables and ive tryed all the different settings and still no luck. It works in SD fine and when i plugged it in to my monitor it worked aswell. My TV is a Sharp LC-32SA1EA or LC-32SV1EA. The monitor is 19" and the TV is 32".

Any help would be great.

My xbox 360 is playing in black and white


Which TV Output do you have, mabye when you changed that PAL setting you screwed it up, and it made it black and white. If its an HD Screen make sure your switches and all of your plugs are plugged in.

No Picture on X-Box


Hi,

Try flipping the HD switch on the AV adapter near the console (try in both the HD and Standard definition positions).

Big black box while trying to play movies


Hello there, sorry to hear about your issue. Usually this indicates that someone has hit the CLOSED CAPTION button or possibly the PIP (picture in picture) button on the TV remote. There is nothing wrong with the xbox, it is actually a setting on your TV. Check the remote to see how you can disable closed captions.

The picture doesnt show but I hear the sound.


Don't worry the HD feed from the xbox 360 has a gain limiter
So the chances are more likely that either your Friends xbox has
the HD setting off or the TV has defaulted to standard video in.
If you get a black screen or a mesage that says no single .
But if your getting strange color on your set with the HD on
then we need to investigate this " Microsoft is liable!" for
damages caused by their console. Ill look in to this and
follow up. The xbox has broken connection under the poorly
soldered G.P.U. and will need to be re-flowed to the main
board to corrects this problem but that's a secondary priority
right now.

I'll check this out for you and follow up.

3 red lights are on the front of the xbox and i cant play help


This means you left your XBOX on too long and it over heated. This is any easy fix, leave your Exbox 360 off for about Half an hour, and It should be fine. If you like playing for Long periods of time, I prefer getting a stand for it, it has a switch thats will blow a fan into the xbox.

But also, don't mess with your exbox to much when the 3 lights come on, you might make a spark and 4 lights will show. By then, you would have to take it to a shop or get a new one.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
