Xbox One upgrade adds black screen bug along with new features

Microsoft rolled out the last major update for the Xbox One game console on February 14. The update brought with it some nice new features like the ability to monitor the battery life left in the controller. The update also added the ability for users to directly control the device storage.

An unintended side effect of the update has reared its head in the form of a new bug reports IGN. The bug has been acknowledged by Microsoft and the company says a permanent fix is coming. The bug doesn't appear to be particularly wide spread.

However, it did hit enough people to result in several threads on the Xbox forums. The bug hits some users when they power on the console. Rather than powering on and seeing the normal screen, the users are hit with a black screen with nothing on it.

Microsoft has a quick fix that will get people hit with the issue up and playing. The fix is to hold the power button down for ten seconds and power cycle the console. Basically, the fix is a reboot. Microsoft has given no indication of when the permanent fix will be offered. It's also unclear how many people are affected by the bug. The good news is that the bug is easily fixed and isn't keeping anyone from playing or using their console.

Microsoft Support tweeted, "If it happens, please power cycle by holding power for 10 seconds."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
