  1. Loose screw in system


    One of the screws that holds the back panel in place slipped out of my fingers and fell through the vents by the disc drive while I was cleaning the console. I can hear it rattle when I shake the Xbox. I can't get it to fall out nor can I see it. And I don't trust myself to open it further. Would it be safe to play or does that screw have to come out first? Of course I'd really prefer to get the screw out but I Do not have the correct screwdriver and I'm afraid of damaging it further. It's a Series X.

    :)

    Loose screw in system

    Thank you Jesse but believe it or not I literally got the screw out about five minutes ago by turning the Xbox upside down and gently shaking it. Took about twenty minutes though, thought it was hopeless. But thank you again Jesse, I never would have thought about sending it to Microsoft.

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    First I believe if the screw is resting on one corner of the console, then it should be safe and won't cause any internal damage. However, if you'd like to get it out I'll suggest you don't do that yourself, rather send the device to Microsoft for warranty fix and they'll get it out for you. You can see instructions on that here https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/hardware-ne....

    Loose screw in series x

    depends if the screws causes a short it has the potential to cause a fire. Quality control for various items from all manufacturers has fallen drastically over the past year, i would not settle for that and would want the store to replace it there and then, i would not even settle for sending to microsoft as you will get a refurb.

    The Xbox One Controller - Is yours kinda flimsy?

    The right screw cover on mine was loose . so I poped it off and put a piece of black tape under it

    and that fixed it

    Thrustmaster TX Wheel - going crazy!!

    Oh never mind I found out why. The screw behind the "snap on" wheel was loose, presumably causing the connections to be loose themselves (even though the wheel wasn't) and thus leading to the "ghost buttons" being pushed.
