    I’m prolly gonna get a new power cable anyways, but my xbox one x power cable will make spark noises when it enters the slot. I can get it to work most of the time but the only real info i need to know is what’s causing it and if its coming from the cord
    or the xbox.

    :)

    Xbox power cable static/sparking noises

    Once the console plug(not the wall plug) is in, the spark noises start however at a “very” particular angle i can get the xbox to start without any unusual noise. But once i plug it in the spark noises start the power in the xbox will go on and off at
    time from receiving and cut power(i have an external hard drive connected to the xbox with a light to signal its on). Im assuming its the cord because the popping noise while kind of subtle doesnt sound muffled like its inside the xbox

    Hi there,

    what exactly do you mean with 'the slot' is that on the console side? If so then I personally would first connect it on console side and after that connect it to a wall socket side.

    It will be difficult to decide if it's cable or console, be sure to check if the slot on console side is clean, so no dust or dirt is present in the slot.

    If the same thing happens when you use a new cable, then I myself would assume it's the console.

    Is it plugged in when you connect it to the xbox . If so that would give a pop sparking noise.

    If not it would be safer to get it checked out . Don't want a fire hazard in your home 🤔👍

    To be honest , if you're seeing or hearing sparking, you should really stop using, until you isolate the problem.

    I'd rather go without gaming than have someone get injured or start a fire

    Think we should be careful diagnosing potential electrical faults "at a distance"
