Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
All of coloured AV cables are in and both the xbox 360 and tv cable are in correctly (tested the xbox on another tv and it worked fine). Why does the xbox 360 not get picked up on by the tv and what settings/channel should it be on in order to work correctly? Thank you
If you are using the Red/Yellow/White cable, that's composite cable, but if you're using the one that's Red/Yellow/White/Blue/Green, that's called component. So basically, you set your TV's input to the corresponding color match. 5 colors: Component, 3 colors: Composite.

If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: AV Cable Problems for PS3
I am not completely sure that this will help you, however try doing a "factory reset".
You accomplish this by first (1) having the PS3 being off (2) hold down the power button on the front of the PS3. It will beep once when you turn it on and then a second time. When you hear it the second time, let go. See what happens.
Sometimes if you connect your consoles video a different way such as S-Video, Component or HDMI, your console remembers those settings and saves them causing many individuals to turn their console on and there is no video.
I hope this gives you somewhere to start.

For the most part, an XBOX will display a picture on the TV regardless of what the settings are. If there is no picture, it is most likely the cable or the XBOX output terminals themselves.
Since you have said that your friend's AV cable didn't work either, even though it did on his, we must assume that the problem is with the XBOX.
If the warranty is still on the console, call Microsoft and send it in. If it isn't either call Microsoft and see that they can do, or find an online repair shop that can help you.
If you need furthur assistance, feel free to ask. If this response helped you, please rate it!

If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.
Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.
It has a preview video on the website.
Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.
