    Any tips for what to do if games won't load?

    At the moment I can't get any games to load on my sons Xbox One S.

    Every game seems to either demand to be updated or "took too long to load" or simply wont' start.

    This is a 2019 Xbox One S, which has already had to have the HDD replaced after 13 months the the HDMI re-timer chip recently. If it's another hardware problem then I give up with microsoft consoles!

    :)

    What to do when Xbox games won't start

    There was an outage yesterday and the effects could still be lingering. Try doing a hard reset (hold down the power button until the console turns off, unplug it, plug it back in, then turn it on)

    Games and Apps won't start on Xbox1S - what do I do??

    Hello Renee Knezovich

    Unfortunately there’s no other way to have a quick way on setting games and apps as shortcuts to pins/groups. This has happened to me as well it’ll be in the group/pins section and it’ll say to see in store. Usually you’ll just have to remove it and add it back to the group/pins tab you have made. You can as well just press the Xbox guide button press Y button to search for apps/games as well.

    Hopefully this helps game on ✌️

    Game loading issues

    Ours won't do anything. All games when started go to a black screen and then back to main menu. No error message, just won't start. Not just COD, all games.

    nba 2k13 wont download upgrade

    Hey there EAZYKA5H305! Let's see what we can do to get things sorted.

    To start things off, here's a few questions for you:

    1. When you say it won't upgrade, are you saying that you're being prompted for an update whenever you start this game, but the update won't download?
    2. What happens when you try to download the game update?
    3. Are you seeing any error codes or error messages?

    Let us know and we'll work with you from there. =)
