    Xbox 360 wont start up?

    Hi, my Xbox wont start up, the little green standby button lights up as normal but nothing comes up on the telly and the controller wont connect to it.
    I can still open and close the door on it and i dont have red ring of death.

    Any ideas?

    What comes up on the screen, is it connected properly?

    nothing at all.

    Ive tried unplugging it and switching it on and off a million times, it just wont boot up

    have you flicked the tv/hdtv switch by mistake?

    is it connected via hdmi?

    unless my tv is actually on the hdmi setting then my xbox wont come on, ie if i'm watching tv and turn the xbox on unless I switch to the hdmi station then the xbox won't boot up.

    Thanks guys i got it sorted, the HDMI cable had very slightly came loose at the back of the TV!

    Strange how that stopped it from booting up?

    find out which HDM socket you have it plugged into, then manually switch to it on your TV remoye then turn your xbox on

    OH makershaker, xbox no working, maybe tomorrow Walters plans won't work hopefully lol

    lol glad you sorted

    Honestly i wonder how many problems can be sorted by just making sure everything is plugged in right lol
