Xbox One Suffering From Black Screen Bug


A new bug in the Xbox One has risen since the system received a new update last week. According to reports, users are experiencing a black, flickering screen upon system boot.

Microsoft has acknowledged the issue, and suggests that players dealing with this issue should cycle the console’s power fully. To do this, simply hold your finger on the power “button” for 10 seconds to allow a hard reset of the system.

Microsoft is slated to release another system update to the Xbox One in early March that will address the console’s multiplayer and social features.
