First make sure your video cable is set to TV not HDTV

Then plug the 3 RCA cables into the color coded slots on the TV. Make sure you aren't using the red cable from the component RGB but are using the red cable for sound (next to the white one).

Then, if you still have no picture, start the console using the controllers Xbox button and hold "Y" and "RT" until the console restarts. this will reset the video settings on the 360 to default.

Follow this guide if you get confused:

and for the video reset about halfway down the page:

White is your audio signal, not video. If you are using a composite hook up, yellow is your video and needs to go in the yellow slot. White and red is your left and right audio. If you are using a component hook up, then you will need to use red, green and blue for video and white and red for audio.

How do i hook up my xbox 360 to the Sharp Aquos


You have a few options actually. depending on which 360 you have you have at least 3 ways to connect; 4 if you have CDMI cable output on Elite 360. you only need to pick one though. easiest is the plug with one yellow and a red and white. the yellow is the video and the red and white are the left and right audio. You can use the red green blue plugs choice if your tv has that input. in that case the red green blue are the video and you use the other paired red white for audio. You can use the S video connection (the round one that looks like a mouse plug) for video. You can use the HDMI (flat, looks like giant USB slot) for really high quality video. So, basically just use whatever cable you happen to have. If you still have questions, please ask as we will definitely get you hooked up for sure:) farmerbear at FixYa

If you're using the HDMI cable with 5 wires, the red, blue and green wires are for video and the red and white wires are for audio. If your TV has a component IN RCA jacks, they connect there. If you're using the 3 wire cable, yellow is for video, and the red and white is for audio. You will NOT get HDMI pictures with this setup so you will have to go into the input selections and choose composite video input on the TV menu. Get a connection diagram from Visio's website or look in your owners manual if you have one.


.Connect them to the corresponding inputs

I just need to see a visual connection of xbox 360 to bacig flat screen tv.Eight now i am not getting a picture.Ihave regular x box hooked up and iam getting a picture for that.


First check the AV audio/video wires to determine if you have SD or HD wires. If you have 3 plugs (red, white, and yellow) then you will get standard definition (SD). If there is 6 wires (2 red, white, yellow, blue, and green) then you can connect High Definition (HD) and you can also connect SD as well. Now what you need to look @ if you have the wires with 6 ends (component HD AV wire), is on the part where you plug into the back of the Xbox 360, there is a switch on the box that is on the wire. It should say "TV" and "HDTV". If you have the component wires hooked up (5 wires) then select "HDTV" if you have only the 3 wires (red white yellow) for SD hooked up switch it to "TV". That is the first thing to check. The next thing to check is the way the wires are hooked up. If connecting HD, you very easily could've mixed up the 2 red wires, 1 is video and the other is audio. The way to determine which is video and which is audio is, for video, the actual plug itself is gray with a stripe of color which indicates where it goes on your tv, the audio plugs are solid white or red. And remember that the yellow plug is not used for HD setup. If you have a Xbox 360 that has the HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) input, then I would recommend using that to hook up your console. With the HDMI its only 1 wire to hook up and is extemely easy to set up. The HDMI wire transfers audio and video all in 1. There is only spot it can fit into, and its located right next to where you plug in the AV wire on the console. To me, the HDMI is "cleaner" looking b/c its only 1 wire.

Hooking up a dvd


You want to hook up the cables to any of the VGA input sets. Red= right audio channel, White= left audio channel, Yellow= Video. Don't plug them into the sets that have Red, , Green, and blue inputs. Just the set with red, white and yellow. Now you won't get HD from this since it's not bluray or HD-DVD. Just be sure you select the corresponding input on the TV when you want to use the DVD player. For example, select input 1 from the on screen display if that's the one you plugged it into.

For the TV:
There are a few possibilities.
1)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the TV Audio OUTPUT to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS (NOTE: Many TV's do not have an Audio OUTPUT).
2)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the Audio OUTPUT of your cable or satellite box to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS.
Note: Using a red and white cable may not give you sound on all 5 speakers.
3)Get a digital audio or SPDIF cable and run it from the TV, Cable or Satellite Box's Digital Audio OUT to the "DIGITAL IN" of the HTS. This will give you the best sound quality. When using this (or any of the other) type of connection, press SURR until you get sound from all 5 speakers.

For the Xbox, try hooking a red/white audio cable from the Xbox into the Audio IN/AUX on the back of the HTS, and then switching the source on the home theater to AUX.

Also, the manual can be obtained from www.usasupport.philips.com

Cabe hook up tore out


Most cable boxes have outputs for audio and video. Yellow is the video, red is the audio out for the right side and white is the audio for the left.
Take a set of RCA jacks and hook it up to the back of the set on input one.
Yellow to Yellow
Red to Red
White to White.
You need further instruction, respond to this post and I will reply.
