    Try to reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:

    Remove any discs from the disc tray.

    Turn the console off.

    Turn the console on.

    Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.

    Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The
    player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant
    light is on.

    As the console starts, press and hold the Y
    button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes
    the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default
    settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when
    the Xbox 360 console restarts.

I have a sylvania tv i just bought and my brighthouse box works with the sound and picture but my 360 when i plug it in it only has sound and i dont know how to fix it and its on the right station

Is your TV HD supported becoz if not, your AV cable may be trying to get HD TV becoz there is a switch on the bit where it connects into the 360 console try switching it to the other side then turn it off then back on hope this helps :)

My Xbox 360 will not show a picture you can hear the sound but there is no picture.

1) make sure the video cable is firmly inserted into the back of your xbox 360. Sometimes a loose connection will produce this result.

2) Check the end to your television set and make sure it is in correctly. Is this HDMI ??

3) Cycle the inputs on your tv until it gets back to your xbox 360 and see if the picture appears.

4) If you have this hooked up via HDMI, connect it through another method and go into the video settings in your xbox 360 dashboard and set them to auto detect.

Let me know if this helps.

Xbox 360 static lines no picture, but sounds,

Log in to your XBox live account and sign up to return your box for service. Even if it is out of warranty Microsoft has been fixing them for free including covering shipping. Our box just went through, took 11 days total.

My x-box 360 has no picture when turned on.

Your XBOX 360 has a video problem. A different cable will not fix this. It needs to be reflowed. Look online on how to reflow an XBOX360 or send it in for repair.

Won't show the picture or sound

Here's one possiblility.

Try changing the swith setting.

No picture or sound on the tv

where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
