Can someone please help me out here. I got a 360 for my dad for Christmas, and typically with my luck there is something wrong with it..................it has no sound

I have tried both Standard av cable and HDMI but still nothing. I know it's not the cables because i have 2 other 360's and the cables work fine with them. It's also not the tv because like with the cables the 2 other 360's work fine on it.

Is the Xbox 360 a faulty one or am i missing something ? it's very frustrating

Tried that but it didn't work. I don't think this would make any difference to the sound of the Xbox anyway, this would only affect my games, on this Xbox there is no sound at all, not even when starting up. Thanks anyway.

Also make sure your have the correct audio options set up from the System Settings menu.
Tried all the audio settings and still no luck.

I didn't think Xbox 360's ever had trouble with audio dying, i knew about RROD and all it's other problems in the past but this is just taking the piss.

May sound stupid but make sure that the lead is in fully. I have experienced this with a wii and the picture was fine but sound was kaput.
At first glance the lead looked fully in, but it was very slighly skew wiff.
The dog had been walking around the back of the TV and knocked the lead slightly.
Good luck and fingers crossed for you.

If you haven't fixed it yet try this:

System Settings > Console Settings > Display > Display Discovery > 'Disable'

Thanks for the advise. I have made sure on multiple occasions it was fully in but that ain't the problem. Wish it was something this simple.

If you haven't fixed it yet try this:

System Settings > Console Settings > Display > Display Discovery > 'Disable'

I will try this tomorrow.
