    Xbox One S won’t go above 720p and only just about works on a 4K tv


    I recently bought an xbox one s on facebook marketplace and It will not work on my TV (not smart or 4k) or my sisters Samsung TV (not smart or 4k) but it will work on the 4K Toshiba Smart TV.

    only issue on the 4k TV is that randomly every few minutes the screen will go black for a second then comes back and it will not let me switch above 720p as when i try 4k and 1080p it will just stay black screen.

    I feel like it might be the HDMI port on my xbox one that might be dodgy.

    (I have tried multiple HDMIs and I’ve done a hard reset and a reset through the settings and nothing is working)

    I can provide more information if needed.

    Also my friend brings his xbox one around a lot and his xbox one s works on my TV (Not smart or 4k).

    :)

    When you switch TVs it stays on the previous TVs settings. Manually change it as the previous poster suggested.

    not sure if this helps but its worth a try Select Settings. Under Display & sound, select Video output. Select TV resolution, and then select either
    720p, 1080p or 4K UHD, whichever is best for your TV. Note If you don't see the resolution for your TV, make sure to set TV connection to Auto detect.

    XBF Eladio M, I’ve done the reset when it’s plugged into my tv but it still does not display on my tv the screen just constantly stays black then it says no signal so I know it didn’t work,

    I have set it to Auto-Detect and i have tried switching to 1080p or 4k and the screen is just completely black then it goes to no signal on my TV so it definitely isn’t working on anything above 720p but even using 720p it has a random black screen problem
    every few minutes

    Hey Lad

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are experiencing difficulties with being able to correctly display alternate TV resolutions on your console.

    There appears to be some configuration on your console that is not being correctly adjusted, just as stated by Dont Test Me.

    I would recommend that you
    boot up your console in a low-res state
    , and try to work your way up to a resolution that most benefits your TV.

    This can be done by following these simple steps:

    1. If there's a disc in the Xbox One console, eject it.
    2. On the console, press and hold the Xbox button for 10 seconds to turn off the console.
    3. Press and hold the Xbox button and the Eject button until you hear a beep to turn on the console. You’ll hear one beep right away and a second beep 10 seconds later. The power light will flash on before the second beep.
      DO NOT LET GO until the second beep occurs.

      Note If you have an Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, you’ll need to press and hold the
      Xbox button and the Bind button instead, as your console does not have an
      Eject button.

      In either case, this will boot your console in low resolution mode (640 × 480). To reset this setting, press the
      Xbox button to open the guide. Go to System >
      Settings
      > Display & sound > Video output, and then select the resolution you want from the Display dropdown.

    I hope this is of some use to you.
