XBox 360 Help - HD not displayed w/ HDMI nor component - only Composite

#1stevedawg85Posted 1/30/2013 3:56:11 PM
So, i bought an as-is xbox (New slim black model) from Craigslist thinking this would be an easy fix, running out of ideas:

Tried multiple hdmi cables
Component cable only displays audio when in HD mode
Component cable in tv mode displays ugly lines but works
Composite AV cable work perfect as it should
Tried the Y and R trigger on start up (M$ trick to default video)

Any other ideas suggestions? Anyone ever heard of this? How is it possible for the 360 to lose its HD capability?

Yup, only $75. I was aware of the problem, just thought it would be an easy fix or user error. It still works under standard composite, but blegh, I need my HD.

Disable or enable Display Discovery. Isn't there an option to reset all to factory defaults? You may have to do that.
