    Flickering screen fix for Xbox One S on 4k TVs


    I recently bought a 4k television for my new room. It is a 55" 4K UHD Samsung. Upon hooking up my Xbox One S, I set it to 4K and loaded up RDR2. I almost immediately experienced screen flickering issues, usually flashing back and forth between black and normal, and even occasionally dropping signal alltogether. I did some sifting through some old forums and also watched some videos to bring you this checklist that worked for me.

    1.Go to "4k TV Details" under "TV & Display Options". It should be the first choice in the middle column.

    2. There should be three sections. "TV Resolution", "Playing Games" and "Watching Movies and TV".

    3. In the two latter sections it should say something along the lines of "This TV supports 4K X-bit at Y-Hz, where X is the color bits and Y is the refresh rate.

    4.Go back one page and go to "Video Fidelity and Overscan". It should be the second choice in the right hand column.

    5. The center column should Have "Color Depth" at the top. Click this and set it to whatever X was in step 3.

    6. Go back one page. Go up one space to "Video Modes".

    7. Make sure all boxes are checked. (YCC 4:2:2 and low latency mode may not be needed.)

    8.Make sure your HDMI cable is plugged into your TV's primary port. (Optional)

    9. Lastly, (This is the step that fixed it for me, although the others may have helped.) Try multiple cables. Certain lower-end cables are not made to handle larger loads such as 4K, and will bottleneck your Xbox's Signal. General rule of thumb is the thicker the cable, the better.

    As far as software and cables go this should cover all the bases. If this does not solve any issues you may be having, it may be the HDMI port on the back of the Xbox is damaged, or something internal.

    :)

    Netflix: No UHD on XBOX One S

    That's the issue right there, Prezdead! My TV auto detects the resolution being put out by the source and sets it accordingly. There is no way to set my TV's HDMI input to display a certain resolution regardless of what the source is putting out. My Android
    box and Roku 4 put out a 4k signal when I enable the resolution they should output is 4k. Unfortunately, The XBOX One S doesn't seem to do that.

    When I do the video test on the XBOX One. My TV doesn't even flicker. It just pops up that it failed everything, which is incorrect. If I change the resolution on the XBOX One S to 720p, then it flickers and my TV changes the display to 720p. If I change
    the XBOX One S to display 1080p, then the TV flickers and changes the resolution to 1080p. If I try to change the XBOX One S to display UHD, it does nothing other than go instantly to the failed screen, which states none of the options are supported. Under
    Advanced Video Settings though, I have 24Hz, 50Hz, and UHD 4k checked. the problem is, the XBOX One S is putting out the 4k signal because the test says the TV fails everything and the TV will not disaply in 4k until the TV receives a signal from the XBOX
    One S to display in 4k.

    Flickering screen fix for Xbox One S on 4k TVs

    Xbox one s isn't capable of 4k gaming the only 4k supported in the S is only in streaming and uhd playback fyi

    Thr xbox one x and higher is capable of 4k

    Should.be noted.you should use the original.cable that came with your unit

    And don't SPLIT The signal so if you have a switch or receiver dint use it it splits the signal

    Always use direct connection to hdmi port tv and make sure it's the 4k port.No name brands tend to limit ports so please.refer to your tv manual

    HDR image flickering on Xbox One X with LG C9 TV

    what is your Problem?

    Flickering Screen on Xbox

    Flickering Screen on Xbox with HDR

    Screen goes Black on HDR with Xbox ?

    You talk about going black but have flickering on Topic.

    There was an official Problem with HDR Flickering on that TVs and Xbox but that should be fixed a time ago
    The screen flickers when HDR or HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour is on in the TV, after a while of flickering it goes black, then the TV loses the signal from the Xbox. That's
    my problem.

    If I deactivate HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour, then there's no more flickering and no more black screen.

    Well it isn't fixed yet, I'm 100% sure I am on the latest firmware on both the LG C9 and the Xbox One X.

    4K Display issues

    Hey there!

    Have you gone through the steps and suggestions on our
    Troubleshoot 4K on Xbox One S support page
    ? One of the steps mentioned is setting the TV Resolution on your Xbox One S to 1080p, while ensuring the 'Allow 4K' box is checked within 'Advanced TV' settings. The TV resolution setting is specifically for setting
    how non 4K content is scaled, and will still allow native 4K content to play at 4K on your display.

    If the flicker issues persist with native 4K content after setting your TV resolution setting to 1080p, please post back the brand and model number of your 4K display so we can take a deeper look!
