Turn xbox 360 on and no picture on tv, xbox lights up green but doesnt send video output. tv is hd and i have tryed hooking the xbox up to another tv, tryed using hd and regular video outputs, tryed new...


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.

I can hear the audio but I can't get a picture


Some x-box 360 cables have a switch on the end that inserts into the 360 console. It switches to HD TV if you have one. If it is switched to the wrong TV type you will get no picture.
Try a different cable or HDMI cable if the 360 had HDMI.
If none of the above work its probably 360 mainboard. Easiest fix would be to replace it or exchange if it has warranty. Good Luck

Im plugging in all my xbox 360 cables but the game wont show up


If you have the cable that is both component and a regular a/v cable, make sure that the switch is on regular tv and not hd, then ste the hd settings to what your tv can handle and then turn it back if you need to.

Have xbox 360....got used,no instruct. book,was hooked to flat screen tv, no longer have flat screen tv, have regular tv hook up game comsole to tv, wont work.....why


If it was hooked to a flat screen it was most likely on high def. There is a switch on the connection to the tv to make it work on a regular defination tv. Just slide the switch over to regular and it should work. Hope this helps.

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.

HOOKING UP XBOX 360 TO HDTV


You have to use the regular red and white cords(not the yellow) and u have to use all 3 hd cords. If ur tv doesnt have a place to put the cords in, then it isnt HD. Also on the plug connecting to the 360, there is a switch that has HD and regular, switch it to HD. hope this helped.

RE: No Picture


Ok,

Then it is a hardware issue.If you have tried the switch, tried multiple cables, and tried it ondifferent tv's and it still does not work than this sounds link theknown X-Box 360 video problem.

Red Ring of Death problem is that the GPU(Graphical Processing Unit) has a tendency to overheat, which wouldmake sense why you get no video, since this is the internal componentthat sends out video through your a/v cables to your tv. The Sound cardand motherboard probably still work, so that is why you would still getsound.

So the only solution is to get it serviced.

No picture


My xbox 360 elite video port went out on my previous xbox, and on the one i just got. it could be your video port on your xbox or it could be the your tv. Hdmi cords usually dont go out so i dont think it could be that. A way to check if its you xbox would be to try the regular cords that you get with your xbox on the same tv and see if it works. If it doesnt, try the same thing on a different tv. if it doesnt work on that tv either then its your xbox. if it does work, then it must be the other tv.

Cannot view picture or game for my xbox 360


Make sure you are using the correct video settings. Try using the basic red white yellow cords and see if that helps. Also make sure you have switched between HD and regular video. there is a switch on the video cable connector that plugs into the xbox.
