My Xbox is transferring wavy black lines to my TV?


Hi guys,

So, I recently bought a new Vizio tv. I hooked up my xbox, expecting a great picture, and instead have faint lines rippling from the top to bottom of my screen. I checked all the cables, and nothing was plugged in incorrectly.

To make matters more specific, I know that my Xbox is causing this, because without my xbox on, the TV is fine.

The lines seem to be more visible in dark-shaded colors, like black or grey. So playing gritty games like Fallout or Red Dead Redemption lose their edge, due to the distracting lines pulsing on the screen.

Can anyone help me with this? I’m not sure if I have to switch it over to the HDMI setting or not, and if so, how do I get that to work?

Thanks for your time. I appreciate it 🙂

  1. Is it a xbox 360? Because if so then idk what your problem is but if it’s a old xbox then it probably won’t work
