Home Xbox Forum XBOX 360 & HDMI ISSUE?



This is bizarre and I need to know what to do. I just bought an HDMI cable for my Xbox 360 (newer black one). I plugged the other end into my TV and pressed the power button on my TV and Xbox. The TV turned on, the Xbox turned on. but then when I went to find the source on the tv screen it said there was nothing connected. I look at the XBox and its turned off!

I’m pressing the power button on the Xbox and now it simply wont turn on! What the hell!?!? Nothing shorted out and yes it’s plugged in. I don’t get this at all, how do I correct this so i can finally play Xbox with some decent quality!

  1. Unplug the power cord from the power box (the only with the green/yellow light) for 30 seconds or more.

    Try starting up your xbox.

    If your xbox still doesn’t come on that could be a sign that something was faulty when you got it (if its new)

    If you have had your console for less that a year, you need to register it online. Registering it on xbox’s website gives you access to free repair and shipping.
