    Xbox one screen flashing

    I bought assassins crew unity and Halo 5 and when I play them, the screen flashes continuously. I have replaced the game, switched tvs and tried the games on other consoles to make sure it was the console. It is the console. Microsoft hasn't been any help. Any ideas?

    It looks like there at small electronic explosions occurring all over the screen. It's really annoying, distracting, and it kind of makes me dizzy if u try to play it..so I don't.

    Re: Xbox one screen flashing

    I'm wondering if there is a mismatch with your monitor in some way (frame rate or something)?

    Just reread that you tried different monitors. Maybe the HDMI?

    Re: Xbox one screen flashing

    I'll try that. Should any new hdmi cable work or do I need to get a high end one?

    I don't buy the very cheapest, but I really don't see the benefit of the really high end ones either. I usually get them on NewEgg, as those have a huge mark up at retail stores.

    Re: Xbox one screen flashing

    try microwaving your disks for 82 secs no more and no less.

    if that doesn't work. try pouring Gatorade into the disk port of your xbox.

    should do the trick

    I run the cheapo ones I used to get from Aaron's when I worked there without any issue. That said I would spend the extra 5 bucks or so and get something middle of the road.

    Re: Xbox one screen flashing

    What the OP described sounds like an HDCP error. Content transmitted over HDMI passes through certain authentication processes to prevent unlawful duplication. It's not uncommon for an HDCP error to flash the image repeatedly, as that would prevent the copying of content - but it's annoying as hell when it's a point to point connection.

    The easiest fix would be to remove the problematic source (let's say your Xb1 was on HDMI2). Disconnect the HDMI cable connected to the Xbox and attempt a different HDMI source (like a laptop or cable box). Usually this will break that HDCP error since the TV and cable box/laptop will establish a different authentication setup. Once that starts working, connect your Xbox again and I bet it works.

    Edit: and now I see the part about you trying different TVs. Replacing the HDMI cables should help. Also, if you are using the HDMI loop through disconnect that, reboot the Xbox and see if that fixes it.
