my xbox's AV is broken, can I still use an HD cable?

Its not the TV since i tried it on 3 different TV's
not the cables since I used 2 perfectly fine cables, it's the xbox itself


I have an HD cable but its plugged in the PS3, can that still work on my xbox?

First try resetting the consoles video settings. If you are not sure how to do this follow the directions on this page: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/kb/xbox-kb.aspx?kbid=911059

It's worked for me in the past, resolving most of my video problems. If that doesn't work, and it's an actual problem with the port itself, maybe you could look into using the hdmi port. If you have a capable hdmi display and 360, you don't need to use the av port.

Hope this helps

You could try it. Move the xbox and plug in the hdmi cable. If it works, it works.

the port itself is broken so that's no help at all.

How do you know it's the port? If it's anything actually wrong with the 360 I'd guess it's the graphics card, and that won't matter what cable you use. But like others are suggesting, it could be a setting and resetting the video to the default value so your TV can recognize it would fix that.

Do you have the av cord set to the right setting? (the switch that's actually physically on the cord, it should be set to tv if you're using the three standard red white yellow cords).

The screenshot in his other topic looks like he has the cords plugged into the wrong colors, like he has the red audio mixed up with the red video.
