    Odd noise coming from controller.


    I recently noticed that my XBox One S controller has been making an odd noise. It's a faint, somewhat high pitch noise. It seems to be coming from the area of the headset jack.

    This noise is only present when my controller is directly hooked up to my XBox One S using my charge and play cord. When using only batteries, the noise is not present. Also, when I plug in a headset, the noise goes away. I have
    also tried one of my older controllers, and it doesn't make a noise at all.

    Other than this odd noise, the controller still works perfectly fine.

    What could be causing this noise, and does this mean my controller may already be on it's way out? (Keep in mind I haven't been using this controller very long. Maybe about 2 months.)

    :)

    Strange Noise ....

    Yes, I'd also like to know where the sound is coming from.

    That sounds extremely odd if itself is coming from the Xbox itself. Try and track the noise to see exactly where it's coming from.

    Crackleing sound

    So the sound only happens while you're playing games? Is it coming from your ODD (Optical Disc Drive) or does it happen with digitally downloaded games as well? Or is the crackling noise coming through your speakers as if it's coming from the game audio?

    Let me know.

    Weird goop on back of disc

    Hopefully whatever the goop was didn't get passed to an area in the drive that will affect functionality. Keep an eye out for odd noises or smells coming from the Xbox.

    Odd Noise

    Thanks for the help, I guess I'll just live with it since I haven't noticed any errors or anything harmful.

    Odd Noise

    It sounds like these are the fans. You can try installing games to the HDD, to reduce noise produced by the console during play.
