If you experience this problem, first, check your HDMI connection. Make sure that the cable is connected strongly on both sides. Also, try to use another cable. If that’s not solving the issue, power cycle your console.

Xbox One X blank screen

If the screen is blank, there could be two possible problems. It might be a problem with the HDMI connection, in which case you need to verify cable connection and try to use another cable, or it may be a more serious problem with your hard drive.

If the hard drive goes bad, it might cause this problem and the solution is to try another hard drive on your console or try the hard drive you have on another device to see whether it’s a problem from the console or the drive.
