    Is my Xbox one X faulty??

    Ok i have had it for since xmas now. There are 2 things that are making me think its faulty.

    1) Sometimes when its on Instant on, il press the power button once to turn it on, however after a second or two it instantly shuts itself down but FULLY not even quick start up mode, it fully shuts down.

    2) My rear USB ports seem to always supply power. Using my external hard drive (wall powered) if i turn the xbox off normally then eventually the hard drive does turn off. However if i hold the power button to fully shut it down the harddrive does not power
    off, which then results in mt xbox getting turned back on by itself. If i use the FRONT usb port then i can fully shut it down and it stays off along with my hard drive.

    You probably have background downloading on which means that when you shut the console down it will blink like that and stay on temporarily while the Cloud is updated.

    If you would like to turn off background downloading then simply follow the instructions at this link.

    Xbox One Turns on, then shuts off after a few seconds

    I get the same thing EXCEPT, using "Xbox on" turns the xbo on for a second or two then shuts off like the others commenting. BUT, when I actually get off my butt and touch the power button on the front of the console it powers up and stays on.

    SOLVED Xbox One X Internet Issues - 100% WiFi strength, network statistics "Unavailable"

    I don't know if this is relevant but when i tried to power it off right now the power button kept flashing and it didn't shut down after a minute so I forced it off. It also sometimes struggles to launch apps.

    XBOX treatment. Thoughts?

    i got RRoD followed by a completely dead console just by turning it off and right back on from the front panel, i consider it an improper shutdown which eventually corrupts the memory and eventually kills the unit, or is hard on the power brick. i always
    since then shut it down from the dashboard and i have had no problems. the claims of overheating seem empty as mine runs a lot cooler than my PS3 ever did. barely warm to the touch (both fat and slim models). if you notice when you shut it down via dashboard
    the front panel LED will flash green and fans continue to run for up to five minutes (depending on how hot it was) and then shut off. when i used the front panel button it just immediately shut off and never did that, so if it was related to heat, it was because
    my fast shutdowns never gave it the time to cool before shutting off completely.

    Launch xbox one S just died... what to do?

    Hey there .

    Let's have you start out by resetting your display by powering off your Xbox One completely (hold power button for 8-10 seconds until it shuts off completely). Once your Xbox One is off, hold down the power and eject button until you hear a second beep.
    I tried this and nothing happened.. Does it matter that my system isn't sending a video signal anymore? The white power button lights up, but the HDMI input source is now staying dark.
