Xbox One No Text on Screen in Kodi Fix Guide

If you are using the Xbox One through a 4K TV, you may notice that there is no text on screen in Kodi whenever you launch the app. Luckily, there is a fix, and we have the instructions below!

The Xbox One no text on screen error in Kodi is a known Microsoft issue and it affects some 4K TVs. There are two 4K resolution modes in the Kodi settings and the fix is to navigate without text to toggle the other options.

Simply follow the instructions below to get the text back in your Kodi on Xbox One!


How to Fix Xbox One No Text Error in Kodi

  1. Launch Kodi and click on the settings gear icon on the left hand menu.
  2. Click on the System icon (screwdriver and gear icon)
  3. You won’t see the menu options, but you will be on the Display tab. Move right once and you’ll be on the resolution option on the second line (first line is greyed out).
  4. Click A / Enter to enter the Resolution menu. The highlighted bar indicates the current choice, even though it doesn’t show any text.
  5. Move up and down. If you are on the bottom most option, choose the second to last option from the bottom and click A / Enter. If you are on the second to last option at first, choose the last option and click A / Enter.
  6. Now you should see all text and an option to confirm the change of resolution.
