First thing to try goto gamestop and buy a multi a/v adpter .that will have many plugs . plug the xbox 360 adapter in and then plug the S-video into your set and some time you can get video single from this line even if the main Red /white/yellow/ line are dead . and since you have sound from red /white you should be ok.
If the s-video has no output then your going to have to do what's called an x clamp mod on it or have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. this is the most durable repair.
