Yesterday, I sat down with our own Joey Davidson to play a bit of the Titanfall beta before it ends this evening. I loaded up my Xbox One and went to grab a glass of water, only to come back to the image you see above. That is to say, the screen was blank. I could hear stuff going on, but nothing I did brought the image back. I finally got it working, but I was worried my Xbox One, the HDMI cable, or my TV was having difficulty.
It turns out that the February patch introduced, as sometimes happens with patches, a bug. Redditors correlated the issue and found that this isn’t isolated to the Titanfall beta, but affecting the Xbox One itself. We just all happen to be playing the Titanfall beta right now. Some users have reported issues with the “yes” command that follows “Xbox Turn Off” being recognized, though I didn’t personally experience that.
According to a tweet from Microsoft support, holding the power button for 10 seconds will resolve the issue for the time being.
Kotaku received the following statement from a Microsoft spokesperson on the issue:
“We are aware of the issue and are working on a resolution. This does not appear to be widespread, but can be addressed by the player by holding the Xbox One power button on the console for 10 seconds to restart.”
This is, thankfully, a small problem with a quick fix that should be patched, if not in the next couple weeks, then certainly by the time Titanfall launches.
