Problem with 4k tv colors

by DippinDotDave. Posted on Aug 01, 2020    1    13

So I have this non hdr 4k tv and my xbox does not seem to work well with it. Some times when i turn on my xbox the colors look weird. Green looks blue and I don’t know why. And sometimes it looks normal. It seems random if i get the normal colors or not. The colors on everything else on my tv are fine but when I’m on good ol hdmi 4 on my tv my xbox the colors are wonky. Please help. Note: I upgraded to this tv from my old 1080p tv and had no color issues ever

I have a LG tv 4k UJ6525 and after One year and half the tv image become darker and blue, then I discover that a lot of people have the same problem with that TV because they made this model with a poor quality led. Dont know how It Works in your country, but I was able to repair for free.

Buy a 2.0 HDMI cable,
I had many issues with my Samsung 4K TV with different new 1.4 cables,even the one that came with my X console.
After i bought an 2.0 HDMI cable i never had anymore problems

I don't know if the Cable that comes with the Xbox X is a 2.0,but in my case that cable also had problems.
A good 2.0 cable is around 10 euro 😉

I experience the same thing from time to time, I think it's because of the Insider program. I can typically fix it by turning the TV off and on.

It's not the cable, that works perfectly fine.

To be honest it could be the console the cable or the TV, without more info there isn't much to go on

actually there is more info. when i go to video fidelity and overscan and under display and overrides i select dvi and go back and select 1080p cuz it cant do 4k for some reason the colors are normal but this isn’t a fix cus it cant go to 4k and there is no sound

Always use auto detect. I dot know what the reason is but if i select HDMI on my Xbox it's all messed up

It doesn't really narrow things down any, try different hdmi ports on the TV and if that doesn't help at least try a different hdmi cable

My guess you have a bad hdmi cable.
