No output from 360 - HELP!!

Hi,

I bought a used Xbox 360 from another forum, which arrived on Friday. Have just got home after being away for the weekend and decided to connect it up etc.

It came with a composite cable and a composite to scart adapter, and I've tried connecting it straight to the composite inputs on my TV's ans also using the scart adapter, but either way I just get "No Signal" on the screen. :(

Have tried it on 2 TV's, both with the same result.

Is it likely to just be a dodgy cable, or something more serious do you reckon? I've sent a message to the seller asking for help but thought I'd see whether anybody here had any suggestions... :)

Cheers!!

more info required like does it have hdmi on the 360 and composite to scart doesn't exist you either mean RCA which is red&white for audio and yellow for video or you mean component red green and blue for picture and red&white for audio what colours are you connecting to your TV and what kind of TV is it?

Are the ring of lights normal green or are there red corners?

No HDMI on the 360.

Sorry, RCA to scart.

Just getting a blue screen with the message no signal on both a Hannspree 37" LCD and a Samsung T220HD. Tried both scart inputs on the Hannspree and have confirmed both work with a different device, same with the scart on the Samsung.

No red lights.

You got a selector on the side of the block that goes into your 360? should say HD or something like that

can you hear sound when you turn it on (meaning the 360 boot up sound)
if u do then its either a faulty cable or a dead gpu
if you dont then its either a faulty cable or a dead 360

Try it with the RCA plugs directly into the tv without the scart usually av3 in through front or side and make sure the settings on the tv are right and you have it on the right channel. Its a wierd one do the lights on the front spin then fade in as they should do what gets me is if you start the 360 without the cable in you get the red circle on the console to indicate no output but your not getting that so in my mind its either a faulty cable or wrong settings or worst case a broken console thats been fixed to light up right.

Put a game in and see if you hear it spin up also unplug the output cable from the console and see if that brings up red lights on the 360

Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
Connect the AV connector on the component HD AV Cable to the AV port on the Xbox 360 console.
[COLOR="Red"]Set the HDTV switch on the AV connector to TV.[/COLOR]
Connect the yellow RCA composite video connector on the component HD AV Cable to the yellow input jack on the TV. Do not use the red, green, and blue RCA connectors.
Connect the red and white RCA audio connectors on the component HD AV Cable to the corresponding colored input jacks on the TV.
Note Monaural (mono) TVs only have one audio input jack. If you have a mono TV, connect either the right or the left RCA audio connector to the audio input jack on the TV.



Steps to connect an Xbox 360 console to a high-definition TV
Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
Connect the audio-visual (AV) connector on the component HD AV cable to the AV port on the Xbox 360 console.
[COLOR="Red"]Set the HDTV switch on the AV connector to HDTV. [/COLOR] make sure the switch is right
Note Only set the switch to HDTV if the TV supports high-definition resolution, such as 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. (1080p became supported after the November 2006 Xbox LIVE update.)
Connect the red, green, and blue RCA connectors on the component HD AV cable to the corresponding color input jacks on the high-definition TV. Do not use the yellow RCA composite video connector.
Connect the red and white RCA audio connectors on the component HD AV cable to the corresponding colored input jacks on the HDTV.
Turn on the Xbox 360 console. From the System section, you can change your display and HDTV settings. Select the appropriate high-definition video setting for the HDTV

when you turn on the 360, what colour are the lights around the start up button, do they flash red?

Sorry for the delay in coming back to you all, and thanks for the feedback.

There is no selector switch on the cable at all

I don't hear any sound coming from the TV at all, but the 360 fans do spin up as they should do.

Have tried with the RCA plugs on their own, same thing.

Lights on the front spin as expected, then fade. With a game in, it spins up as normal.

If I turn it on without the AV cable plugged in I get the red lights.

Try this

To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console 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.

Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn on the console by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Wait for the guide light to indicate that the controller has linked to the console.

Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is indicated by the upper-left quadrant light on the console.
4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button as you pull the right trigger.

Note This action causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings. The console then automatically restarts.

The selector is where you plug the cable into the 360. It should be, if it’s the official Microsoft cable.

Looks like problem diagnosed...I was just plugging it back in to try bucketuk's suggestion (thanks BTW) when the AV lead plug disintegrated in my hands...so I guess it was a dodgy cable.

Thank gawd for that...was starting to panic a bit!!

Thanks for all of the help, rep on it's way to all. :-D
#13
It does seem like the cable but it could also be that the settings in the dashboard where set to HD and the tv cant display that through the scart/rca so if the reset doesn't work its got to be the cable but i doubt the seller would have sold him a console with a dodgy lead as he would get the complaints i bet he had it connected via component hd and has kept that lead and sold it with the standard lead and forgot to reset the display to SD hence the issues.

Let us know if this sorts it
#14
As above, it was the lead - it crumbled in my hands so must have been knackered!
#15
Ok mate as i was writing before i posted you must have got your answer but make sure you contact the seller as hes robbed you as these replacement leads are not cheap but i bet you have an hd tv so an upgrade would have been needed but it might get you a few quid back towards a new lead but when you do get the new lead if you still cant get a picture remeber what bucketuk wrote that was one to remeber even for old hands like me as ive locked myself out adjusting the settings before.
#16
Yeah don't worry, I've emailed the seller - the TV I intend to connect to is HD so I would have been after a component lead anyway.

Have also made a note of the instructions from bucketuk - very handy!!

Must've been fairly dodgy then!
