When users connect their Xbox One to a TV or monitor, the console adapts to the video settings of the respective TV or monitor. However, this can cause various video quality issues, such as blurry images, fuzzy and static screens, and more.

If you’re experiencing fuzzy screen issues after you connect your Xbox One console to your TV set, follow the steps listed below to fix this problem.

Fix Xbox One fuzzy screen problem

  1. Adjust the screen resolution
  2. Adjust color depth
  3. Adjust color space
  4. Contact Xbox Support

1. Adjust the screen resolution

  1. Scroll left on the Home screen to open the guide > select Settings > select All Settings.
  2. Go to Display & sound > select Video output.
  3. Select TV resolution.
  4. Select the appropriate screen resolution for your TV. The Xbox One offers screen resolutions of 720p and 1080p.

2. Adjust color depth

  1. Go to the Home screen > open the guide >  select Settings > select All Settings.
  2. Under Display & sound > select Video output.
  3. Select Color depth > select the option that works best for your HDTV. It is worth mentioning that not all HDTVs accept deep color information, meaning the color depth of 30 bits per pixel (bpp) or higher.

3. Adjust color space

  1. Scroll left on the Home screen to open the guide >  select Settings > select All Settings.
  2. Under Display & sound > go to Video output.

    2. PC RGB – recommended only if you’re using a PC monitor.
