Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, I need to know what the model number off the back of the TV is that you're connecting the Xbox to?
Also, what cables are being used- are they Red,White and Yellow RCA cables?
Okay, not familiar with that TV offhand, but usually these sets have jacks that double as "Component" and "AV" jacks. When you use a Yellow Video cable, it plugs into the Green jack and then you need to select "AV" or "Video" as the INPUT- not Component. Find the TV's Input or Source button and select Video or AV. Let me know what happens.
You lost me on the "make sure I'm not charged $36". Set the TV to AV or Video instead of Component- that will fix your issue with the black and white picture. Once you've gotten the info you needed, please rate my service as 5 stars. That is how the site works.
Right now you're set to "component". You paid the site a deposit to solve your problem. You then rate me and I am paid a portion of that. I have nothing to do with billing. Nothing to do with charges or subscriptions, etc. I'm an independent tech working of my own time and the rating is my livelihood. Thanks.
You never mentioned anything about that. Also you need to switch form component to composite- not the other way around. Now WHY cant you change the Input- any more info on that?
Check the side of the TV for an Input/Source button to select the Composite/AV setting if you don't have a remote.
If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click the 5 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. It is my livelihood and you can follow up at any time if needed.
