  1. Xbox lights up but no signal to screen and eventually turns off


    I have an Xbox One Elite and my console has decided to stop fully turning on.

    I press the on button and it lights up making all the usual noises. It also lights up in response to me turning my controller on (although the controller itself does not actually connect). The console also accepts and ejects discs absolutely fine.

    However, there is no signal to the TV - the box sits there idle for about a minute and then just turns itself off. I've tried power cycling, holding down the power button for several seconds, I have tried replacing the power supply and all myriad of options.

    I see quite a few solutions online for when the box makes the startup noise but nothing else, here it appears to be turning on but then just doesn't continue booting to the home screen. My TV gets no signal for the entire time it is lit up. When a disk is inserted I can hear the sound of the disc being read but even sometimes in the middle of this it just decides to power down, making the typical chime down noise.

    Does anyone have any solutions to this??

    Thanks

    :)

    We can't turn on your console

    Picked up a brand new router and connected just the xbox1 and my computer to it.

    Still cant turn the xbox one on using apps

    When sending the turn on signal from the app I can see activity lights flashing.... then turn off...then flash again

    Like the app is sending the signal and the nic is receiving it but it wont turn on

    Xbox one S turning off

    Not sure that taking it apart is the best first move. I would recommend reviewing this page here for if

    it's not turning on or turns off unexpectedly.


    When you turned it on, and did not display on screen, was the light on the console on? Was it on and then turn off? A little bit more information about what you saw on screen, and what happened with the display (if it showed that it did not get a signal)
    and the status light on the console, can help us identify the best troubleshooting steps moving forward.

    somehow it did

    Actually, this has happened to me before, but it was from an ir signal sent from a different device that was able to turn on the xbox. It may seem strange, but flashing lights, and even moving fan blades near light can give off a "ir" signal for a split
    second, enough to turn on your xbox, or even tv.

    I was in the promised land, now I'm in hell...lol

    I had a similar issue a couple hours ago.

    The screen went black, but I knew the console worked because I could hear the audio prompt when I said "Xbox" and when Kinect logged me in after startup.

    My TV also showed that it had a signal from the HDMI even though the screen was blank.

    Turning the console on/off normally did nothing.

    I held down the power button until the light went out, and the light on the power adapter turned red.

    I then turned the console on, and the green xbox one screen appeared.

    It then showed a black screen for a few moments, then the xbox logo in the center and then at top right.

    It may have shown black again, but eventually displayed the home screen.

    I also had an issue with the HDMI IN going black, but selecting "HDMI:Connected" in the TV&OneGuide settings | Troubleshooting fixed it.

    CapricanToaster, you mentioned your Kinect kept turning on/off.

    Have you checked the connection to be sure it hasn't come loose (unfortunately, I wasn't looking at my Kinect as the system was starting)?
