Why does my Kinect keep going through power down/up cycles then stop
My Kinect 2 for Xbox One keeps powering down and back up again then eventually doesn't come back on and shows the 'not plugged in' icon in the top right corner.
I could hazard a guess that it is over heating and shuts down as a safety precaution? If this were true maybe the fan isn't working. Should the fan be on all the time or only when it is hot enough?
How can I get an actual fault code out of it? And assuming I can get a fault code, where can I look up what it means?
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Are you in the preview program? This seems to be affecting a lot of people including myself. The fan doesn't seem seized, it's just not turning on.

My Kinect started doing the same thing well before I joined the preview program, so I'm doubtful that they're related. I'm anxious to see if anyone on here finds a solution as I've had to completely unplug the device from my system now and wouldn't mind getting it back for the dance games I purchased for my kids.

It was the fan. I replaced it and everything is good now

I decided it was probably the Kinect itself rather than software, but as this particular kinect broke previously too and the fact that being out of warranty it was going to cost £50 to get it repaired, I instead bought a second hand one from webuy.
It turns out the second hand one was newer than mine so that was a bonus.
I have had this second hand one for over a month and it has been trouble free, which for me confirms it as hardware and not software.
The second hand one by the buy was half the cost of the repair!

There is a post on Giantbomb, in which a user states that a fuse located at j11 is blown, thus causing his Kinect to not turn on. He said he couldn't source an identical part. I wonder if a similarly rated fuse would get it back running again?
Does anyone around here have a fried kinect, that they could check this on?
