Check your HDMI cable and console. The HDMI cable may be faulty or the pins in the port are bent. The faulty HDMI port is often the culprit of a pixelated signal. Try a different HDMI cable or changing the screen resolution. If neither of these options work try changing the screen resolution on your TV.
