    My Xbox 360 keeps dimming and turning black as I'm playing games.


    Ive been playing Minecraft recently as it has become more and more popular. However, as I'm playing, it keeps dimming until I can no longer see anything. What should I do?

    :)

    Hi pixie_ray,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums, I'd be happy to help.

    What model Xbox 360 do you have and does it have an official Xbox 360 hard drive? Does this only happen with Minecraft or just using the console in general?

    If you do, I recommend
    clearing the hard drive's system cache
    and then turning off the console, and unplugging all cables for at least 5 minutes.

    Let us know if that helps.

    Does this only happen on Minecraft? If so, there's not an issue with your Xbox... its an issue with your brightness/gamma settings. For games with dark atmospheres (as Minecraft has a day and night cycle, as well as the whole mining in caves thing) you'll
    need to tweak your brightness settings in the game or use the in game light sources. For Minecraft if you want to just see "everything," crank the gamma up to 100 or craft some torches.

    If that's not the case, the audio-video Xbox 360 support link may help.

    Screen brightness very low when turning system on

    I'm having the same problem on my Xbox One. All my other devices hooked up to my TV display perfectly, and are not super dim like when I turn my Xbox on.

    Black screen

    I bought my Xbox One S in December 2018 and currently i'm experiencing 2nd black screen in a few months.

    I got first black screen in January 2019 and got my xbox fixed by Microsoft. Now in June 2019 i got 2nd black screen. So frustrated!

    I'm curious what did they fix? What is causing black screens? I'm also playing my games on external hard drive to not strain the internal hard drive but black screen keeps happening.

    I've tried troubleshooting steps (except the usb update cause i don't remember my dashboard version and i still have black screen) so i'm confused nothing works.

    I'm thinking if it gets fixed for a 2nd time i'm going to sell my Xbox One S and buy an Xbox One X so maybe i would have better luck with different hardware. I really don't know... my white Xbox 360 Pro is still alive and never got red ring of death and
    Xbox One S keeps breaking with black screens. I'm lucky with Xbox 360 but so unlucky with Xbox One S. I'm so disappointed with Microsoft hardware.

    Xbox One will not power on after initially working and my experience so far trying to contact Microsoft to fix it.

    I'm having the same issue, definitely defective equipment not an outlet, I also spent 2hours installing crap before I could play. It turned off 2 minutes into the game and won't turn back on. Its not the outlet. The power supply light is much more dim
    then when everything was working, sometimes when it first plugs in it is as bright as initially but half a second later goes dim again. Microsoft just ruined my weekend. So many failed promises. I miss Bill Gates.
