    Xbox Series S having issues with starting games and restarting from menu


    I got my Series S console about 3 months ago. Almost immediately I started having issues with game startup and console restart. Firstly, if I turn off my console without completely quitting a game or application, I am unable to start the game/application back up when I turn on my console. It just gives me an error message saying it's having trouble at this time. Secondly, when I try to restart my console from the start menu my screen just turns grey and the console never restarts. The Xbox light stays on and that's it. To overcome this I have to unplug my console each time to fix the game/application startup. At first, I figured it was just some bugs since the console just came out but it's been a while now and I haven't been able to find a fix anywhere else. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Series X Issues

    I have exactly the same issue today with the Xbox Series X but not the S.

    "issue with flickering pixels that only happen on the menus of the console, but not in game"

    tried multiple displays and multiples HDMI cable.

    Do you have any news update?

    Xbox Series X Hardware Issue

    My controller started doing that (Series S) and was unresponsive (console never shut off, though) and I replaced the batteries and unplugged everything from the wall for a few seconds and restarted using the controller and I haven't had an issue since
    (sorry if that doesn't help)

    Campaign Crashes Game

    I uninstalled the game and re-installed. I disconnected from the internet, restarted my xbox one s and I have the same issue where it kicks me back to the home of xbox one and I have to start the game again. None of the suggestions worked.

    Series s

    Is it normal that there is some internet issues on the xbox series s and can i fix it

    It used to work
    "some internet issues" is pretty vague but try restarting your Xbox series s and if that doesn't work forget your Wi-Fi network then re-connect to it? lastly maybe try an ethernet cable?

    Black Screen on Live TV

    I occasionally have a similar problem where the screen is blank (with no sound) and have to do a complete restart of the Xbox for it to work.

    Far more often I have the issue that the screen freezes within a second of starting the TV app, quitting the App (from the home screen menu) and restarting sometimes fixes this. Other times changing to and from the Set top box guide/menu sometimes fixes
    it.
