    Xbox Series X media apps cause the screen to flicker/blink


    I have noticed a problem when I use my Series X on my new 32” Samsung 4K 60hz monitor. That being when I use certain media apps (like netflix) it triggers a frenzy of flickering and in some cases the screen blacks out for a short period. I believe this is caused by the consoles software rather then the monitors and it is very frustrating. It doesn’t flicker when playing games in 4k (or older games in 720p) or when I’m on YouTube, only on some media apps. In the end I have to restart my Xbox because after I use one of the apps that causes the flickering it doesn’t stop. Is there a way I can get around this, or will I have to wait for Microsoft to release an update? Thanks.

    P.S. Everthing works fine when I use a 1080p 60hz TV, and I’ve heard about this same problem happening on other 4K monitors and TV’s. So I’m confident it isn’t a hardware problem.

    :)

    Xbox one screen flickering black

    Help[quote user="xZasshuken"]

    My xbox one makes my tv flicker black non-stop when i open games and apps. I switched HDMI cords to see if it was the issue and it still flickers. It's not the tv either cause i've tried a separate xbox one and no issues. I need to know the issue here with
    the xbox that keeps making the screen flicker black. I did the hard reset with holding the power button down and it didnt fix it.

    HDR image flickering on Xbox One X with LG C9 TV

    what is your Problem?

    Flickering Screen on Xbox

    Flickering Screen on Xbox with HDR

    Screen goes Black on HDR with Xbox ?

    You talk about going black but have flickering on Topic.

    There was an official Problem with HDR Flickering on that TVs and Xbox but that should be fixed a time ago
    The screen flickers when HDR or HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour is on in the TV, after a while of flickering it goes black, then the TV loses the signal from the Xbox. That's
    my problem.

    If I deactivate HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour, then there's no more flickering and no more black screen.

    Well it isn't fixed yet, I'm 100% sure I am on the latest firmware on both the LG C9 and the Xbox One X.

    Seriously the lack of AA KILLS THE GRAPHICS

    ^^ Yeah, that's 360 alright. Nice find, xFilter. That is definitely Xbox, notice the "reload gun reminder" on the bottom right of the screen blinking "X", and the menu screens between deaths.

    Screen Flickering - Using non 4K TV - Xbox One X

    Hey, having the same problem here. Using Xbox One X. It was working fine for a year and recently started flickering. I have bought a new 4k tv and it's even worse. I bought a new high speed HDMI cable: new set of issues - complete black screen or it flickers
    heavily. Went to test the XBOX on a 3rd tv and it flickers as well. I'd appreciate some help.
