  1. Only showing a black screen on start-up


    Because of the rubbish aspect ratio, I changed the TV connection from 'auto' to 'HDMI' in the video settings on the console. Now it refuses to show anything but a black screen, but audio still comes through fine. I've tried doing a reboot by holding
    down the power button until it shuts off and I've tried booting it in the lowest resolution settings by holding down the eject and power buttons until it turns on, but it still shows a black screen after saying the settings have been reset to 480p. There's
    only one HDMI port on my TV, It's the only TV in the house, and I've also completely swapped the HDMI cable for a new one.

    :)

  2. I was in the promised land, now I'm in hell...lol

    Thank you Mister Urkel for replying,

    I tried all of those things with no success. It is still starting up, showing me the Xbox One start screen and then going to a black screen and just staying on that.

    Blackscreen after start-up

    Same here, just updated my Xbox last night, everytime I start it up it only shows a black screen... Pressing home button only brings the shutdown menu, if I choose "report a problem" it shows the Xbox Feedback screen but then goes back to black

    Kinect for Xbox One Not Working in Games

    When the game starts up to show the main screen, there’s a box on the left of the screen showing what the kinect sees. That shows a total black screen. Underneath that kinect view is another box that shows the kinect’s field of view and normally, if you
    stand in front of the kinect, it recognizes you and a green dot appears on the screen to let you know its figured out where you’re standing. You can go ahead and start playing. For us, kinect doesn’t pick up on the person standing trying to play the game and
    shows a completely black screen.

    x box

    I'm guessing the posters first language isn't English. I suspect the xbox starts up shows an error and the screen goes black.

    Try leaving the xbox at the black screen and powered on for around an hour or so and it may hopefully boot up fully.

    Xbox One stuck on black screen after boot up

    I have been experiencing the same problems, black screen after start up. Halo froze went back to dashboard and couldn't do anything from there. Did a hard reset and only get a black screen after start up.
