    Why does my Xbox dim HDR games now?


    For some reason when I tried to play Apex today my xbox dimmed the screen super dark, like to the point where its so annoying its unplayable. When i dashboard the screen returns to normal but anytime I try to start up a game it goes dim again. Ive never
    had this issue before today. How do I stop my xbox from dimming my games?

    :)

    I have this same issue on Xbox Series X, everytime when in a game a couple minutes it dims the screen, turned HDR off on xbox itself and problem is gone. Hope they will fix this at some point because what is the point of HDR if you cant use it. The HDR itself works great ingame with no issues at all just the strange dim after a couple minutes.

    Xbox One X dimming for some games and apps

    Found out HDR was the issue. If I turn off the HDR everything works fine. Anyone know why all of a sudden HDR would cause my XBox to dim?

    Xbox One X HDR dimming problem!

    Hello,

    My xbox one x has an issue with loading games in HDR. When a game or netflix starts up. My screen dims dark. Like it fade away. All colours are dark and not bright.

    I have a 4K/HDR tv with a 10 bit panel. And it doenst work.

    I tried everything. Switching settings from my tv and xbox, hard reset, different HDMI 2.0 port and cabel. Only HDR in 8 bit mode doenst go dark. But I know my TV has an working 10 bit panel that works with other content beside my xbox one x.
    Same here. It looks as if you have screen dim on as a power saving feature. The problem with this bug is that dims the screen as soon as you start and play an hdr game or app.

    Screen dims slightly after 5 minutes.

    … it does say this one that link you gave - When using the NU8000 for HDR PC Gaming, there is currently an issue with the 'Standard' picture mode where the screen became very dim and we were unable to change it. So maybe
    there are issues with this TV and dimness.

    Xbox one S, Netflix dims screen when HDR is enabled

    I've had the same issue since the one S came out. The only way to stop the dimming effect is to shut off HDR in the Xbox settings. Not sure if this is an MS issue or a Netflix issue. But seeing as I can cast 4k hdr Netflix from my phone directly to the tv
    with no dimming, my money's on MS issue

    Xbox One X TV issue

    thanks for the prompt feedback. ive checked all the settings for troubleshooting 4k and hdr. my setup is set how they suggest. and yes i am using the cable that came with it, which is why i am able to get 4k and hdr. it looks amazing, its just when the
    screen flickers and goes dim is bothersome. thats the only issue. 4k and hdr work fine and all the 4k games and those available with hdr support all show there working fine. i will sign up for the xbox inside program as well
