    Series S suddenly Dim after startup


    Played earlier in the day with no trouble. Left console unplugged for several hours. I came back to play and the screen is extremely dark. I've tried multiple HDMI ports and cables, reset the console several times, and left it unplugged for 5 minutes, and verified the display is fine.

    Still very dim display. Any help?

    :)

    Series S suddenly Dim after startup

    Hi ColLin9! My name is Ricardo an independent advisor ready to help you with this situation!

    You could try this first

    Press the Xbox button to open the guide.

    Select Profile & system > Settings > General > TV & display options.

    Under Display, a different screen resolution, then change it back to normal

    If that doesn't work, Try to restore keeping games and apps, please be sure that you know your account email and password:

    Press the Xbox button to open the guide.

    Select Profile & system > Settings > System > Console info.

    Select Reset console.

    On the Reset your console screen, you'll see three option use this one, be sure you remember the email and password of you're accounts:

    Reset and keep my games & apps. Use this option as your primary choice when troubleshooting. It will reset the OS and delete all potentially corrupted data without deleting your games or apps. In some cases, if a corrupt game file is causing the issue you're troubleshooting, you may have to choose Reset and remove everything, but you should always start with Reset and keep my games & apps

    Xbox goes idle while I'm streaming live programs on NBCSN

    Settings > Power and Startup > Power mode and startup >

    Make sure Turn off after is set to: Don't turn off automatically.

    Then under Settings > Preferences > Idle Options

    Set to Dim screen after 60 minutes.

    It should help a bit. :)
