Not sure how many and what type of outputs the xbox has, but it's always a good idea to try the other outputs. If you're using component out, try the DVI, or HDMI, or Composite. Also, most importantly make sure the TV is set to accept the input. Is it set to Input 1, Input 2 - this is usually labeled as Input or Video on the remote control.

If you have the AV cable that has the switch on the Xbox end, make sure that it's in the correct setting. Your cable could have shorted out if this does not work.

How to set up your xbox 360 without causing overheat


take everything out your new xbox 360 packaging. there should be:
1)a console (obvioiusly)
2) a cable that connects your 360 to a power block
3) a power block that connects your xbox to the wall
4) a cable that connects your xbox to the tv
5) a small rectangular box that connects your cable into the scart port on your tv.

lets begin
take the cable and connect it to the power block and move the power block to the side
take the scart plug (small rectangular box) and connect the yellow white and red wires into the approprite slots (these are marked out on your scart plug) and move to the side
pace your console down 90 deg. on its side in your desired position.
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WA
do NOT place your xbox 360 standing up as this can cause red ring of death syndrome and other known xbox killers due to overheating i am on my second 360 as i never followed my own advise.if you keep your console standing straight it can cause vibrations which knock your cooling sinc out of place. it can also scratch your games more easily and ring them making them UNPLAYABLE. now place all cables you set aside and connect them into appropriate slots on the back of the console. and connect them into wall socket and tv.
thanks for reading.now wheres the free cake i was promised.

My xbox 360 as a problem .i can hear the game but cannot see it on tv.


Do the following
  • Try new wires (borrow it from friends or neighbour, no need to purchase).
  • If you have some other TV at your place or some friend's place you may try connecting this xbox 360 to that TV and check if the TV / monitor is compatible and to see whether the fault is with the TV or console.

However, I would suggest you to go through the following link, as it explains complete procedure to narrow down and troubleshoot the issue with pictures in it.

Do not open the console, as it could void your warranty.

I can hear my xbox but can not see it.i've tried it on 2 different tv's and no picture. i have also tried new wires but still no picture.


As you have tried new wires, if you have some other TV at your place or some friend's place you may try connecting this xbox 360 to that TV and check if the monitor is compatible and to see whether the fault is with the TV or console.
However, I would suggest you to go through the following link, as it explains complete procedure to narrow down and troubleshoot the issue with pictures in it.

Which wires doi use to connect up my xbox with my


In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,

For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports

If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio

Xbox 360 Console, Faulty, NO DISPLAY!!??


What do you mean, no display? Is is game-related display issues? Have you checked the AV cable connection? Or is it about the settings? Is this the first time that you are going to connect your xbox console?

To determine whether the display issues are specific to a particular game, try playing a different game to see whether the same symptom occurs. Reminder, some Xbox original games that were released for the original Xbox console may show some display issues when you play them on the Xbox 360 console.

Next, make sure that AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV. To verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, you can disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices. Note: If you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings. If you try to set HDTV settings, you may lose the picture.

You might also want to check your TV's settings because some display issues can be caused by how the TV is set up. To make sure that this is not the case, please check your TV's settings.

In your TV's settings, you should check the following:
- Make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or NTSC)
- If your Xbox 360 console is a PAL console, set your PAL settings to PAL 60
- If your TV has a type of picture compensation enabled, disable it
- If your TV's settings are correct, you may want to try using a different TV, if you have one available. Try connecting your Xbox 360 console to another TV to see whether the same display issues occur

Next, reset your Xbox 360 console. To reset the display settings to the default settings, follow these steps:
1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
2. Turn off the console.
3. Turn on the console.
4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time.

The problem is probably that you have put the cords in the wrong places or have used the wrong cords
