Xbox Won’t Show Up on TV: How to Fix Display and HDMI Issues

If you’re experiencing problems with your Xbox One display or HDMI, don’t worry – it’s a pretty easy fix. Here’s how to troubleshoot the issue.

First, make sure you’re plugging the HDMI out into the HDMI in on your TV or monitor. If you’ve already done that and it’s still not working, try unplugging the HDMI from both your console and your TV or monitor.

Next, hold down the power button on your Xbox until all lights are off. Then, hold down the power button and the eject button at the same time until you hear two beeps. This will start the troubleshoot process.

At this point, you should see a green screen pop up. Click “continue” and your Xbox should be fixed. If you’re still experiencing problems, try changing the resolution to match your TV or monitor. Don’t set it to 4k, as your screen may turn black.

If none of these solutions work, try using a different HDMI cable or joining a community like Aero Fix for further support.

We hope this guide helps you fix your Xbox display and HDMI issues. Take care!

Why won't my TV pick up my Xbox?
Make sure that the HDMI cable is in the HDMI-OUT port on the Xbox One console. Try a different HDMI port. It's entirely possible that an HDMI port on your TV could be broken or damaged. If you have additional HDMI ports on your television model, try plugging the HDMI cable into each of them to see if they work.

If the TV screen goes black after you turn on the console, then there could be a problem with the connections. Check if you turned on both the Xbox One and the TV.
