1. Check the HDMI Ports of the Xbox One and Monitor.

Pull both ends of your HDMI cable and make sure that it is not damaged or loose. Now check both HDMI ports of your Xbox console and Monitor. If you see any unwanted thing, dust, or tiny materials, lightly spray compressed air into the ports to clean the HDMI ports.

Now put the HDMI cable in the Xbox and Monitor HDMI port, and make sure it is connecting properly. If you find it loose or damaged, then you should plug the cable into a different HDMI port of your Monitor.

2. Check if the HDMI cables are not damaged.

After checking the HDMI ports of your console and Monitor, make sure that the HDMI cables are not damaged. If you are using a damaged or broken cable to connect your Monitor or TV to your Xbox console, it will lead to an Xbox One HDMI No Signal error.

You should try using a new HDMI cable to connect your Xbox console to your TV. If you can’t manage to arrange another HDMI cable then you should clean corrosion and dust particles from the cable ends.

3. Plug the Cable into the HDMI Out To Tv.

It is recommended that you should plug the cable into the HDMI Out To Tv port of your Xbox console. Go to the back side of your console, and you can see the first HDMI port (HDMI Out To Tv).

You have to plug the HDMI cable into the first port and then plug the another-end of the cable into your TV. Make sure that you haven’t plugged the cable into (HDMI IN FROM SAT/SLASH) otherwise you’ll not get a signal to your TV.

4. Launch your Xbox in Low-Resolution Mode.

Your Monitor may not sync with your Xbox console because of High-Resolution graphics, and thus you can see the ‘No Signal’ error on your screen. Thankfully, we have a solution for this and you can launch your Xbox in Lo-resolution mode.

  5. Now a pop-up will appear and select the Yes button to change the resolution.

6. Restart AVR if your Xbox Screen is Black.

If you are using an AVR (audio-video receiver) on your console that’s also connected to your TV, then you might face the Black screen issue.
