Hi all,

I just came back from spring break. Hooked up my XBOX, and am not getting a video signal to my TV. I can hear audio, but not picture is showing up. I hooked up a dvd player to the tv to make sure that it wasn't broken on that end, and the DVD showed video. But my XBOX doesn't.

Do I have to buy a new cable? I am just outside the 90 day warrenty, so I don't think microsoft would replace it.

If any of you know if there is some way I can fix it (I sure can't think of anything except buying a new cable), I would sure appreciate some help. It worked over spring break just fine.

Thanks.

This happened to me once and I nearly had a heart attack. It turned out that the cable was just loose.

It ended up that the cable was indeed broken. I found someone else in the dorm that had an XBOX, and borrowed his cable. Worked perfectly.

So I just ordered another one. Damn it! I just got Silent Hill 2 and Tony Hawk 3 today. Now I can't start playing them till then new cable arrives :(
