Change the video input setting on your TV

Symptoms

When you turn on the Xbox 360 console, your TV should display the Xbox Dashboard (or a game or film start screen if you have a disc in the disc tray). If you see a blank screen or regular television programming, change the video input setting on your television to the video input used by your console.

  • Follow the instructions in your TV’s owner manual to set the video input.
  • Common video input settings include AUX, HDMI, Line In, Input and Source.

Change the video input settings to switch between watching TV and playing films or games on your console. If the screen is still blank, try the solutions in Troubleshoot audio and video problems.
