Help me figure out what's wrong with my Xbox

Alright, hi guys. I need help figuring out what's wrong with my xbox..... I think it's broken, but it's out of warranty. Alright here we go:

It's not a red ring or e74 because there's no lights, it turns on fine. The only problem here is when i turn it on, there's nothing on my t.v screen. I've checked to make sure everything is hooked up and it was. I'm not crazy because my t.v alternates from showing my xbox interface to showing a blank screen. Before that, my screen would freaking go wild with colors and really fuzzy.
Currently, my xbox turns on but i can't see anything on the screen. When i try to turn it off it takes at least 30 seconds after pressing the power button to fully turn off.

So anyway..... can anyone help me figure out what's wrong with this?
I called xbox support and they don't know....

Sounds like a graphics card failure, but not your average one. Do you get any horizontal lines on the right side of the screen?

There's nothing on the screen.... like right now it's total black and i can't see anything. When it was working though, i don' think i saw any.... that's what i had last time when my 360 e74'd.... which just happens to be the same xbox. But no, the only graphic problem was that there was outbursts of colors everywhere..... like it'd be extremely pink, green or some other color.

Stupid question, but have you tried different cables and/or a different TV?

I'm out of warranty..... so i really don't want to spend 100 bucks to fix it.... i'll probably look one up on Craiglist or something. I think filter is right though... the graphics were effing up lately... so that might be the reason.
