    Xbox will not launch apps or display the home screen


    I just updated my xbox and it worked fine for a day or two before no longer displaying the home screen. It shows a black screen however, the quick menu will still open. Any help would be much appreciated!

    :)

    Hi BHord,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help troubleshoot the issue.

    First, go ahead and do a hard restart and
    power cycle
    . Hold down the power button on the console for about 10 seconds until it shuts down and then remove the power cable from the Xbox and the power outlet for about 5 minutes. Then re-connect and turn on the Xbox.

    If that doesn't help then you will need to try out a soft factory reset.

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    2. Select System > Settings > System > Console info.
    3. Select Reset console.

    Make sure to select "Keep my games & apps" and have the correct account login information plus your Wi-Fi password ready if you connect wireless because you will need to re-add the account's that were on the Xbox and re-connect to your
    network during the reset.

    Try out those troubleshooting solutions and let us know the results!

    Wireless Display (preview)

    . . . same here when the app is launched the screen becomes black and after a view seconds goes back to the xbox one home screen. i tried uninstalling, rebooting console, and reinstalling wireless display (preview) app and that did not resolve the issue.
    Really hope someone from product group support takes notice of this issue and resolves it as w/o this you have to go buy hardware to enable miracasting phone and tablet screens onto console connected big screen.

    Wolfenstein content currently unavailable

    So I figured it out on Xbox One. I went to My Games and Apps from the home screen and launched the game from there vs launching it from the home screen. It picked up right from where I was getting the "Content Not Available" message. Hope that helps.
