If your new Raspberry Pi 4 is not displaying anything, but is booting:
Please change the following settings in the /boot/config.txt setting. You can access these settings in a few ways.

1. Using another display to access the file:   sudo nano /boot/config.txt
2. Insert the SD card into a computer/laptop and open the boot partition

Uncomment and change or add to the bottom of the file:

hdmi_safe=1
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=81 (or 39 this will depend on the type of display)
config_hdmi_boost=9
dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
max_framebuffers=2

Not all of these settings may be necessary, this will again depend on your type of display, however adding them all and removing one by one will help find the ones you may need.
