        • Restart your console and configure your video modes to one of the listed options above.
        • If

          you're still experiencing a corrupted image after restart, disable VRR

          on the TV. Please consult your TV manufactures on how to do this.
        • If

          the issue still persist after steps 1 and 2, perform the video mode

          reset sequence to get back to a safe state and configure for one of the

          two options above. To do this,
