Black screen when switching on?

Hello, only just got the xbox for a birthday present.

I'm using the supplied HDMI cable, but sometimes when i switch it one I just get a black screen. I have to switch it off, disconnect the HDMI cable from the back of the xbox and reconnect, then switch back on before i get a picture.

Any ideas?

First off disconnect the power brick for about 5 minutes. This will clear the memory cache, which may cause the black screen.  If this does not work try a different cable and then an other tv. It may be an issue with the hdmi handshake rather than the console. Hope some of this helps.
