XBox 360 HD-AV male prong broke off into female component port

We had the male part of the green video output of the xbox 360 HD-AV component break off into the female port for the same on the back of our Vizio HD TV. It is too far up in there to get out with a pair of tweezers. We connected a new component cable and it didn't work so we are wondering if we need to have the broken off prong removed and if it can be done ourselves or if the TV needs to be taken apart in order to have that whole input cap replaced.

  • Anonymous Mar 02, 2009

    I have a panasonic tv that last night I was trying to move w/o disconnecting the cables, and my male component broke off also inside of the female one and it's also way too small to try and get out w/ a pair of tweezers we bought this flat screen from best buy, so I'm trying to give them a call, when or if I find out what to do, if we can get a replacement I'll write back on here and let ya'll know! This sucks! I guess this is what I get for not just disconnecting the simple wires instead you know? Apparently I have to do everything the hard way lol! Take care!

    im having the same exact problem, and now im out of money for a new tv, so im kinda screwed. mine was a regular av cable though.

  • Anonymous Apr 26, 2009

    actually, i fixed it now. i was the one who posted earlier today. what i did to fix the blue and pink appearance of my tv was to actually to push in the prong a little more. theres no chance that it would come out for me, so i pushed it in a little, and then plugged in the dvd in part of the component into my tv. if that works 4 u, then go and buy a new component cable, but only if u hav more than 1 set of female ports, and plug it in. hope it helps!

Hello

One board takes in the HDMI as well as the other signals. Sometimes part of the board breaks and that is what sounds like has happend in your case. This is a fairly common problem and most people tend to just live with it. Others sell thier tv and a few find the number of thier board to see if one is available on ebay or shopjimmy. If you are comfortable with electronics the board is not hard to replace.

Im sorry your HDMI broke....

I hope this helps

How do I hook up Xbox 360 to the HDTV


Step 1:

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360


Step 2:

Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.



Step 3:

Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."



Step 4:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on


Step 5:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.



Step 6:

Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.



Step 7:

Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.



Step 8:

Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.



Step 9:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.



Step 10:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.

I have no TV output!


This will only work with a dvd player, PS3, XBOX 360, and other gaming consoles

You need:
- 3 AV Splitters (2 Female 1 Male sides cord)
- 1 Double sided Video and Audio Cables (Red, white, yellow cables)

Connect your consoles Video and Audio cables to the female sides of the splitters, next attach the Video and audio cables you bought to the splitters as well.
Now plug in the video/audio cables you bought into your TV.
If you did this everything properly this should work.

Sorry if this didnt help you

XBOX 360 composite output works fine. Component


You say the component video is no good? Well this usually happens when it is wired up incorrectly, Ensure you have the right colors in the right jacks at each end, it is real easy to get mixed up... make sure Red goes to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to green, all alongside each other, NO ALSO using Component you MUST also run 2 more cables for the Audio, they are Red & White NOT the Red from the "Other" Video input, BUT the AV Red & White jacks, beside each other on the units. So all in all there are 5 cables taking the Video, 3 R, G, B. + The Audio, R & W.

I was having trouble with my component AV cable. I went to purchase a new cable, HDAV component cable and connected the xbox. I had an image for a short time and now do not. Please help!


your HD settings may be too high, go to "display settings and change them, if your not on an HD tv, change the output to "TV" on the AV cord where it connects to your xbox, if you Are on an HD tv make sure the output is set to "HDTV" on the AV cord where it connects to your xbox, there is a little switch on the side that slides left to right

Which wires doi use to connect up my xbox with my


In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,

For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports

If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio

Vizio SV470XVT will not output Dolby 5.1 from optical out..


TV's only will output 5.1 from HD stations. If you have a DVD player, XBOX 360, etc connected through HDMI, then the TV will only send stereo PCM through the optical out.

360 help


This is a picture of the HD AV cable:

On the back of the part which connects to the 360, there's an optical output.

If you then get one of these leads:

It should send the 5.1 digital audio from your Xbox to your HD. I'm sure your TV should have an optical input on it somewhere!

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

Connections


What the two do is give the audio, you need a 'Y' phono (2 female to male connector adapter) and a female- female adapter to suit your speaker connector and the male end on the adapter so that you can plug in your two cables and the plug in the outlet your pc speakers plug, it will cost about £5 or $10 wherever you are. I have done it and its worth it for the picture quality. see below http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=phono%20adaptors&source=15&SD=Y
