    Xbox One X Buzzing Sound/Coil Whine


    Hey,

    I've had a xbox one x scorpio edition for a few months now, multiple times i've sent it back to microsoft for a replacement and/or "repair", however it still has the same issue. When in any game it makes this really audible buzzing sound, which i assume
    to be coil whine, however others online say there console is silent as a whisper so I'm starting to think otherwise. The fan also fluctuates in games; increases and decreases rapidly, also audible.

    I've sent and received a total of 5 consoles, this is ridiculous and I've stopped using the xbox altogether because it's way too annoying and on top of that my 2013 xbox one with that noisy power supply is still MUCH quieter than this new one.

    If anyone else has similar issues, and/or have fixed the problem please reply to this. I've done every possible troubleshooting; power cycle, clear cache, etc. If someone from microsoft reads this please help to solve this problem or at least to understand
    whether or not this is a common problem amongst all the consoles, which i doubt as there would be more people creating forums.

    THANKS

    :)

    coil whine with latest update

    The latest system update from 8/5/2016 has introduced coil whine to my xbox one. Coil whine is a buzzing sound that can be heard from across the room, but only when the system is idle, for example at the home screen. It goes away when the system is being
    stressed, for example playing a game. It is also present in instant on mode. This coil whine was not there before the update. From what I have read an update long ago fixed coil whine for many. This most recent update has reintroduced it.

    Xbox one X-Buzzing sound, Possible Coil whine?

    Your description of when the sound occurs makes it sound like it is likely fan noise. If your games are playing without issue, and the sound is not bothersome, then it should be fine.

    If the sound gets worse, or if games have issues, then you will want to contact support. Xbox One Support | Xbox 360 Support | Xbox Live and Billing Support

    Personally, my Xbox One X: Scorpio Edition is generally quiet. However, I do occasionally hear a winding/chirping noise. More than likely it's the hard drive reading.

    As for the fan fluctuations. Generally I hear this when playing a game that's graphically intense.

    I tend to hear (notice) a lot of noise of a higher frequency than most people. It could be that we're the same in that aspect.

    Please let us know on the outcome, I would like to know what was wrong.
     
  7. Just curious as to how you have had the Scorpio edition for a only a few months, when it was a limited pre-order from almost a year ago?

    Hey there, GeorgeA5!

    Sorry to hear what's going on with the console.

    If you've already had it sent out a couple of times and they are not repairing the issue, I would try to request a callback here
    Contact Us | Xbox Support and see if you are eligible for any "exchange" order rather than a "repair".

    If you are in warranty, you might want to call a Microsoft Store in the area and see if they can verify that and perhaps exchange your console for one there.

    Here's our store locator so you can get in contact with one in your area.
    https://www.microsoft.com/store/locations/find-a-store


    Give that a shot and let us know how that helps with the resolution of the issue

    Thanks!

    It's felt like a few months but I've had it since the start of the year kinda of, I can't remember exactly (was around feb and march). However, I purchased it off eBay unopened, which is why i said a few months.

    Buzzing Noise From Xbox One X

    Ive googled coil whine before and all the videos I found sound like a slight buzzing.

    Update Xbox One X for resolve problem of Coil Whine

    The buzz sound, printer like, is intermittently when starting up in the menus and stable during the game phase, mixed with the noise of various fans (not so loud but approaching
    the ear I feel it clearly). I don't know if it's normal in all One X, for me it's Coil Whine.
