Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

No HD picture, but standard def is ok

OK so one day I was sitting there playing DMC4 and the picture starts to go green so I restart the system and then no picture... I know this has already been done to death but the only thing is my 360 shows everything fine when in standard def... it's only when you flip the switch on the component cable to HD and switch the wires that the problems start. I have tried different AV cables and different TVs and nothing. Anybody got any ideas? Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

lol microsoft junk should've bought a PS3!

Sound but no picture


Check your AV cable and make sure it is properly set for the TV type you have. Standard TV, move switch to TV. Hi-def, move switch to other side. Also make sure you have the right video cable plugged in. Yellow for standard definition. Red, blue, and green for Hi-def.

If your using the hi-def cable(red blue green) check that its switched to either standard of hi-def. Also if your using the hi-def cable it wont work if u have the white head in the same time as red blue green! Hope it works for you!

I bought a Nintendo Wii off of a guy and I didn't realize when I did that it came with Hi-Def RCAs. My TV only has a standard RCA hookup. I was told that I could still use the Hi-Def RCAs but what colors...


Those are not High Def RCAs.

The cables you received are called "component" when the picture is broken down to its component colors, red, green, and blue.

When compared to "composite" cables (RCA), the yellow is all the components in one, which is the video cable. The other red and white are audio.

Your component should be RGB, Red & White (audios)

What you need to do is buy a composite cable for the Wii, which shouldn't cost that much--usually under $10 bucks. Save the component cables for when you get a new TV since those are the more expensive of the two!

My xbox 360 console will power up as normal and put out sound but no video. i have tried multiple tvs and cables with no luck.


are you on a standard def or HD tvs? b/c if you have the xbox set on high def, then you try to plug it into the standard def then you won't get a picture, but you will get sound. If you don't have a high def tv then go to a friends or someone you know's and plug it in to see if you get a picture.

Some games won't run on my PS3 40mb


Hello.
All games should run regardless of the settings. Are they PS3 games or games from the PS1 or PS2? That could also make a huge difference. The 40GB PS3 is not fully backwards compatible. Also, if they are PS3 games, try the reset default video settings. That might even work. Here is how to do that.


Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

I hope this helps. Good luck!!

Message that game will not play at current video setting


Hello.
You just need to restore the defaults for the video. Here is how to do this.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.

NHL 08 won't load


Your TV does not have the same requirements as the Sony PS3 Console. The PS3 Uses Standard Def. and High Def. Blu-Ray Display. You need Blu-Ray enabled on your Television. Hope this helped.
