Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

HDTV Problem I've recently purchased what I thought was a VGA component cable for my Xbox 360. Only thing is, It won't work for me. I have tried to alter my Hi Def settings on the dashboard, but it only seems to register that I have a HD cable wired in when I have the first switch set over to TV. When I've clicked Hi Def the dashboard doesn't even acknowledge that it's plugged in. Then, if I flick the second switch that alternates it between Av and Comp, The screen flickers and refuses to work at all. I got a core Xbox 360 so I had to buy a HDTV cable seperately. I got one cheap. But evidently it's cheap for a reason. As it won't work. The cable I got is a Gamexpert Component & S-Video AV Cable (GS-3603). And the Tv I'm trying to run Hi Definition off is a Beko 32" WLA520 HD. I'd like to know if there's anything I'm doing wrong. I'm hoping it's just an official cable I need. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

There shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component Use the following colours into your tv:- Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs. Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings

How do I hook up Xbox 360 to the HDTV

Step 1:

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360


Step 2:

Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.



Step 3:

Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."



Step 4:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on


Step 5:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.



Step 6:

Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.



Step 7:

Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.



Step 8:

Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.



Step 9:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.



Step 10:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.

No input signal VGA/Xbox

You are doing nothing wrong. The best thing to do, which you are doing, is to eliminate possible problems. Try a different cable, monitor etc until you narrow the problem down to a single component.
