Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video 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

No sound can unfortunately mean the HANA chip is causing the problem. This can happen after the RRoD has been repaired since overheating causes the issue to begin with. If you can confirm that sound was working before, then it's going to be the chip.

Apparently if you try using the optical output on the HD AV leads, this *may* cause you to get sound working.

    If you have the HD AV cable (with the red green and blue leads on it), there's an optical output port on the plug itself. Get an optical lead and run it to your TV, which should have an optical input.

My xbox 360 has no video or sound... No splash screen, nothing... Just a black screen.. No RROD.. I tried 3 av cables and same result.. plaese help

Probably the same problem as the RROD, just without the lights. Reflowing the CPU and GPU and replacing the thermal compound with Artic silver 5 should fix the problem.

My 360 has video but no sound. I tryed new cables

Hi, this is caused from your GPU unit becoming too warm, this has 3 types of reactions when it gets either loses video,but has sound or has video and no sound, or it severe cases it will give you the RROD. The best way to fix this is take it to a repair shop and have them replace the x-clamps and thermal compund. It is a relatively inexpensive repair to have done.
