    Coil Whine


    Over the past few months I've begun experiencing a loud chirping noise from my OG Xbox One. Because it's obviously out of warranty I ignored it. Sometimes I would do a full shutdown and then the issue would go away for a little while. Also certain apps
    would cause the issue, Disney+ more consistently, but now it's begun happening with games. The real issue is that eventually the console will freeze and then I'm forced to do a hard shutdown.

    Then I found out that this issue had cropped up about 5-6 years ago and MS replaced those consoles for free. Now I'm wondering why they didn't just issue a public recall? This upsets me that I have to either buy a new console or pay an equal amount to
    repair this one. How do I call Xbox Support to talk to them since they've updated their support page and now it's impossible to get the phone number it seems.

    :)

    That's where my head is at as well unfortunately, but i think they shouldn't notified owners some how. There's ads all over my dashboard, I'm sure they could've used that space to notify people. Just my opinion obviously. Still interested in a phone call
    though. Know of any way that i can get one?
