  1. Kinect Not Recognized


    My Xbox One Kinect had been working fine since I've had it back in November during the lunch of the console. Yesterday however, when I powered on my Xbox One console, the top left corner of the main screen indicated that my Kinect was not plugged-in even
    though it was. No light on my Kinect lights up anymore and the Kinect tabunder settings is inaccessible. I have tried unplugging my Xbox One from the power-outlet and disconnecting my Kinect and then re-plugging but still nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions
    on how to fix the issue? Is it possible the recent June update has caused this?

    :)

    Kinect Not Recognized

    Actually it's not uncommon for those first production run models to short out. I'd set up an exchange and get it swapped out. Give the support team a call at 800-4-MY-XBOX or you can set it up yourself at myservice.xbox.com

    Help with 2 things

    Whenever Kinect doesn't recognize you and sign you in automatically, go to the sign in manually. There is a section there that says "I wasn't recognized" Click it and choose the profile you would like. After a few of these the Kinect will better recognize
    you. Also, the Kinect can see in the dark with detail. So being too dark for the Kinect to see you is false.

    [/quote]This . Just want to add that if you have your GT to be signed with password the kinect will recognize you but won't sign you in.

    Xbox One only recognises my Cat

    It worked! I recalibrate my Kinect and now the kinect recognizes me

    Why does my 2nd gt keep signing in on its own?

    Do you have your kinect plugged in, and does the system recognize you as that gamertag also? Whats probably happening isthe kinect is recognizing you as both and signing in the secondary profile.
