    Series S died and asked to pay $250 to get it fixed


    Hi Xbox Community,

    I bought my Xbox Series S in November 2020 and I do not use it that often ( around 1 hour each week). Recently, I updated my Xbox and continued to play a game and turned it off. The next day it would not turn on at all. The Xbox logo does not even light up and I did tried to power cycle it. Additionally, I also tried different wall outlets and another Xbox power cord but none of these fixes worked. I got in touch with customer service and they just asked me to pay CAD $250 for a $380 console to get it fixed. On searching the web the issue seems to be the power brick inside it. Which makes me wonder isn't power brick rated for certain usage ? Is it that weak that it gave up for such a small amount of usage. I am just infuriated how a power brick which I hope they would have tested for much more excessive usage just died. Does any one else had face any similar issue ?

    Thanks.

    :)

    Who is ready for tomorrow!?

    I managed to order a Series S. 😁 But for only £250 I could always upgrade it later.

    Xbox series s/x ssd compared to 3rd party hd,S/ssd,s

    I tuned out awhile ago with xbox updates. With peeps thinking series S will be free and series X will be 800 and everything in between. Now that we have prices. S,s 300$ + estimated 250$ for storage = A 550$ 1tb, ish xbox makes the big brother S,x
    a no brainer for me. Still need atleast a extra 1tb of space to avoid unistalling. Hopeing to avoid having a huge discrepancy in storage speeds. Since thats not really an option. Ill hold for actual pricing on official ssd,s. Size being the real issue. 250$
    for 1tb ill assume. 500g impossible, wishful thinking a 2tb for 250 then iam back in the race. Still got few months so ill hold. Even out of the gate at 250 they will be 200 in no time. Assuming

    Question about buying a new xbox

    I'm assuming you're asking about the Series S and X not the One S and X?

    If that is the case, if you have any games on discs you want to keep playing, get the Series X. You won't be able to play them on a Series S. Otherwise, the Series S is a little lower quality, but would be fine for casual gaming.
