If your xbox is having a "red ring of death" then you unfortunately have to send in your xbox for repairs.
If you are not receiving a video output, then make sure the cables are correctly connected onto your TV. If that doesn't solve it. Then it is likely that your xbox has malfunctioned, wait a day to see if your xbox is just malfunctioning from overheating. If that doesn't work, then go to this site and send in your xbox for repairs.

Hope everything goes better for you : )

TV has no picture, but sound works fine

Are you using the AV input for the XBox or other cable? If you use AV, then use the same input that the Xbox does not show picture, plug in a DVD and see if it works. If it does not have a picture, so 100% your TV has problem.
