    Xbox Series S Black, non functioning Home screen. Games still playable.


    Hello, I just recently bought my Xbox Series S about 3 weeks ago. It's worked great so far! yesterday I LOST my home screen completely! The console boots up just fine, except instead of a home screen, apps, or news, it's a black screen with nothing. I can
    do everything else still, play games, futs with settings, however, I can't figure out the solution. I've not seen anyone with a similar issue, as my side menu still shows up, and games run fine. My home screen is just gone! Trying ti change the background
    results in returning to the black screen and seemingly leaving the settings menu, with no options to change it.

    Does anyone know what happened, or how I can fix it? restarting the console does nothing.

    :)

    Hi!

    First of all, I suggest to try to power cycle your Xbox following the instructions from the following article, under the
    Physically power cycle the console tab:

    How to restart or power cycle your Xbox One console

    If this does not solve the issue, try to perform a reset keeping games and apps:

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    2. Select Profile & system > Settings > System > Console info.
    3. Select Reset console
    4. On the Reset your console? select the option
      • 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.

    Xbox one crashing to home screen only on bf5.

    Have you tried reinstalling the game and doing the power reset function on the xbox? Normally helps if the game is crashing on the black screen or going straight back too the home screen.

    Could I expect to play online with series x and one

    nope, most if not all current games on xbox one will be playable on the series x, eventually there will be games release just for the series x and they wont be playable on previouse console versions.

    Xbox one s and Xbox one X are the same family, series x will be the new console and eventually (a couple of years down the line hopefully) games will only be release on the series x family so the xbox one x will not be able to play them.

    If this is not confusing

    All games that will be coming out with Series X will be playable on original, S and X for 2 years at least.
