    Temporary Blank Screen (but still functions)


    Hi,

    About 80% of the time that I start my xbox, the screen that greets me is blank - the xbox is on and functioning - I can hear the correct sound effects when I move the controller over where I imagine apps to be.

    This is easily solved by changing to tv mode and then back again to HDMI, then it appears as if it was there all along.

    But does anyone have a permanent fix for this? Thanks!

    :)

    Hi John,

    When you start the Xbox One console, you expect to see the green Xbox startup animation screen. During the startup animation, your console runs a full system check on all hardware components, validating the firmware and the operating system. This is
    very similar to the way a PC starts. The startup animation screen can take several minutes before transitioning to the next screen. If the system check fails to run the startup animation three times in a row, the console is flagged by the system as “do not
    run.” This will block the startup animation from running, and in its place you'll see a black screen.

    You've tried factory resets, a different TV, and different HDMI cables so the issue is with the console hardware, firmware, or software. The only other option you haven't tried is an

    offline system update
    . Click on the link and follow the troubleshooter to complete the offline system update.

    If the issue continues after an OSU, then you will need to send the console in for repair again.

    Hi there JohnLS5150,

    Thanks for reaching out here in Xbox Forums. I understand there is an issue with the screen going black when using the Xbox One. I recommend to try the following steps to help troubleshoot the console:

    If none of these solutions resolved the problem, your console may need to be serviced or you may need to contact the TV manufacturer for more troubleshooting assistance.

    Give this a try and let us know the results.

    Heyo,

    I've done a hard, soft, and even complete factory reset more than a few times. It just got back from a service as well. These often fix the blank screen in that next startup moment - but then it inevitably happens again. Again, this is easily solved by going
    into any other app on the tv then back into hdmi mode- but I'm wondering if there is a more permanent fix so I dont have to do this every time.

    Its been this way for a year, since I've had it.

    Hello,

    Thank you, I will try the offline update and report back.

    I should reiterate that I do believe the start up animation/system check is running, just that I can't see it during this stage - generally by the time I have switched from the hdmi channel to an app/tv and back again, then the green screen is there (almost
    finished loading) or if I'm slower, it is already past this stage and on the normal home screen already.

    Thanks again
