How To Reset Your VGA Resolution on the XBox 360

December 25, 2006 by · 83 Comments 

Xbox Box

If you are playing with resolutions to get your VGA cable working, and/or you go to a friend’s house and use a different resolution and then go home to try and plug it in into your TV, you may find that you can’t see the video, and that the Xbox 360 does not revert back to VGA resolution as backup. You are therefore ‘stuck’.

However, The-Agent.net, has come up with a way of circumventing this (for the older interface, for the newer interface as of Fall 2008, see update on the very bottom on this post) –

  • HOLD D-Pad RIGHT until blade selection sounds stop, or 3 seconds (You are now at System Blade)
  • HOLD D-Pad UP until menu selection sounds stop, or 3 seconds
  • PRESS A (You are now in Console Settings)
  • HOLD D-Pad UP until menu selection sounds stop, or 3 seconds
  • PRESS A (You are now in Display)
  • HOLD D-Pad DOWN until menu selection sounds stop, or 3 seconds
  • PRESS A (You are now in Screen Format – If you get a “bonk” sound, skip next 2 steps)
  • HOLD D-Pad UP until menu selection sounds stop, or 3 seconds
  • PRESS A (You have just selected NORMAL Screen Format and have returned to Display)
  • HOLD D-Pad UP until menu selection sounds stop, or 3 seconds
  • PRESS A (You are now in Screen Resolution)
  • HOLD D-Pad UP until menu selection sounds stop, or 3 seconds
  • PRESS A (You have just selected 640 x 480)

UPDATE (for the new Xbox interface):

This happened to me with the new interface as well.

– Turn off your Xbox 360, wait for everything to be off (don’t have USB controller cable plugged in).
– Turn on your Xbox 360
– Once you turn on the xbox, after you hear the bong sound, hit Y and then quickly after the right trigger.
– Hold both down. You’ll hear the Xbox reboot.
– Unplug Xbox and replug (from the box)

This worked for me, let me know if it works for you.
