    Console randomly turns itself on (and off)


    I've had my Xbox One for a total of 2 days and this has been happening ever since I first turned it on.

    The console will randomly turn itself on and then off. This is accompanied by the sound you get when you press the button on the front of the console (sometimes it will make the noise several times in a row ... say the "turn on" sound .. then the "turn off"
    sound 4 or 5 times in a row).

    I have tried:

    • System Update
    • Power Cycle (several times)
    • Disconnecting power cord and restarting (several times)
    Because I am getting the audio "tinkle" sound (from pressing the power button) I assume this is not a Kinect / Controller issue (as turning the console on or off using the controller or speech doesn't make any noise).

    Has anyone else has this issue? And is there a fix?

    :)

    It sounds like there could be an issue with either the console or power supply. If the steps in the guide didn't help, it's best to contact our chat/phone teams. The console may need to be serviced and they would be able to look into the warranty status
    with you.

    You can contact Official Xbox Support through either the live chat option (if available) or phone team
    HERE.

    Hello ,

    Thank you for posting here on the Xbox forums. We understand that your console has been turning itself on and off randomly. Have you tried power cycling your console and moving it over to a different outlet? Aside from that, if your console is only turning
    off randomly then check out this support article: Troubleshoot Xbox One unexpectedly turning off

    thank you for the reply... tries the steps in the guide and there was no difference in operation.. I even left it totally unplugged for an entire day, plugged it back in and got about 10 minutes of gameplay in before it shut off all by itself, then a couple
    mins later it turned itself back on, then back off, and back on again.... what's wrong with my Xbox?
