Xbox 360 Flickers Only When Turning On - ???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My Xbox 360 is hooked up to my 54" Panasonic Plasma TV. So is my PS3 and receiver (of which the Xbox is hooked into).

When I turn on my Xbox 360 the screen flickers until it gets to the home screen and is then just fine. No issues playing games, on the home screen, etc. Only when initially turning on with the Xbox logo on the white background does the console flicker.

I have tried different HDMI cables, different HDMI slots, with disc in when turning on, as well as no disc in while turning on. None of that has made a difference. But, I don't get why it only does it when turning on and stops when it hits the home screen. Been like that for a while.

Thoughts as to what could be causing the issue?

By different HDMI slots do you mean directly into the TV, or just different slots on the receiver?

It could possibly be the display - for instance, I use a monitor for my 360, and it sleeps if nothing is 'active'. Since there is a slight delay, I get a little flicker effect when I start it up. It isn't anything to worry about, though.
