Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Bought a new scart lead for my x box 360 as old one broke. X-box was ok until scart broke(pin on the yellow end snapped). So bought a new lead and now the picture is 50/50 as to wether it will come up. When it does it jumps a lot then freezers half way down screen sometimes black and white other times with colour. Most of the time the tv will stay blank as if no signal is being received. Ive tried the cable in all the scart inputs and a different tv and still have the same problem.

It is important for you to know that the xbox 360 is a very sensitive and high-tech machine. One of the factors that contribute to this is the fact that it is produced by a company that deals mainly on computers so many of the xbox 360 that were produced did not really have the exact same components but similar ones that could carry out practically the same job. This fact being noted, i think it is time i get to your problem fully.
There are different possible causes of this problem. It may range from a bad SCART cable or to a non-compatibility in the cable and the console's motherboard. Due to the little differences that might have occurred while the console was being produced, it is very possible that this cable would work perfectly on one console and refuse to work perfectly on another similar console.
It is advised that you try to connect the cable with another console and see if it does the same thing and then you can be sure that the cable is faulty. Also, you can try another cable which you are sure is not faulty and see if that helps too.
After that is done, you might want to reset your console so as to see if that would help you perform a sort of auto-calibration for the video settings.
To reset Xbox 360 console display settings

  1. If there is a disc in the console, remove it.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console by using your controller. To do this, press and hold the controller's Xbox Guide button until your console turns on.

    Note If multiple controllers are connected to your console, make sure that you use the player one controller. You can recognize the player one controller because the upper-left quadrant of the Guide button is lit up on that controller.

  4. While the console is starting, press and hold the Y button and pull the right trigger at the same time. Continue holding the buttons when you see the Xbox 360 logo.

    The console will restart and you will see the Xbox 360 logo again.

    The console's display settings are now reset to the defaults.

Have you tried another scart lead? Also tried all of the tv scart sockets? Don't try and cure this by using an expensive upmarket scart lead, you'll just be wasting your money. The cheapest leads work just as well when the function correctly.

You could also try reversing your current lead by swapping the tv end to the Sky box and vice-versa, as there are many leads which cause feedback issues, and also a lot of "cut" leads (designed to prevent feedback looping) which must be fitted the correct way around. A "cut" lead is one where the wire to pin 19 at the tv end and to pin 20 at the video/Sky box end has been cut.

Note that scart leads MUST be fitted with the tv and Sky box switched off to avoid damage. Most people (including professional installers) regularly ignore this precaution though.

If all else fails then take the tv back and exchange it under the Sale of Goods Act; it's certainly not uncommon for new tv's to have faulty scart sockets.

If I've solved your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer. If not, then please report back with the make and model of TV and I'll try a more specific answer.

HAS SOUND BUT NO PICTURE, IT IS NOT THE TV CAUSE THEY ARE PRETTY NEW. ALSO HOOKED UP A PLAYSTATION AND IT WORKED.


I had a similar problem. Don't worry, it's probably something really simple.
1) First check you component HD AV cable:
Is it properly plugged into the back of the XBOX? Push it in with a bit of force until it snaps into place
2) Check the Red, White and Yellow leads. Are they going to the right connections?
3) If you are using the Scart connection or a connecting your XBOX to your TV via a DVD player check all the Scart connections to see if they haven't come loose and if they have, push them firmly back in.

One of those is likely to be the problem.

Thanks for update. 
Can you please post image of that small box as its some thing new to me which takes standard RCA composite video and gives  out direct to USB port? Does this box digitize the audio-video signal for USB?

The EasyCAP takes red, white, yellow RCA (also offers 'S' video connector but as my material is standard VHS, I have ignored this) through a small box to USB which connects directly to a USB port on the laptop."

DVD playback no playback


Sounds like the scart lead is not in straight. Scart connectors have the audio pins at one end, and the video pins at the other. If the lead isn't in straight then you often get sound and no picture and vice versa.

Check the connection by pushing the scart lead in securely. (Both DVD and TV end of the lead)

Failing that could be a dodgy lead.

A/v cable


Hi,
Sorry to dissapoint you, but they are completely different at the console end. both the same to T/V. either 3 x Phono ( red-white-yellow ) Or 21 Pin Scart.
Don,t buy the 360 lead, it won,t fit.
Whats ironic, is that most of the Original x-boxes were assembled in the Philipines.
Try e-bay, if you can,t get 1.
i,ll ship you one from the U/K.

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Hi.

Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).
DO NOT USE AUTO TUNING IT WILL PUT CHANNELS IN THE WRONG ORDER JUST USE MANUAL TUNING.

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.
