    Xbox Series X - loud spark and then burn smell; won't turn on now


    Hello, I was playing on my Xbox Series X when I heard and saw visually a loud spark come from the console. It immediately shut off and won't turn on again. There is a burning electrical smell coming from the inside now. I tried contacting through the website, but it seems to force me to post here. Who do I get into contact about this? Seems nearly impossible to contact support. Thank you.

    :)

    Xbox Series X fan runs loud when playing Series X games

    So, I recently noticed that my Xbox Series X fan runs loud when playing Series X|S / Optimised for Series X|S games specifically.

    It’s quite strange as it’s dead quiet every other time, but as soon as I start a Series X|S game, the fan becomes so loud that I need to turn up the tv volume.. it’s quite distracting.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Any solutions?

    FYI - My Series X is a pre-order/launch day model.. and it sits in an open and well ventilated tv/entertainment stand*

    In comparison, I owned an Xbox One S for three years and I never heard the fan on that.
    I’m having the exact same problem now. The only time my Xbox sounds loud is when running series x enhanced games, it’s completely fine on old gen games. Have you had this issue fixed or is it still a problem now?

    Xbox power supply lights Cause for xbox not turning on

    MY xbox power supply shows a green light when it is plugged in the wall only (not in the console yet) when plugged in the console too it shows a green light again but here the Xbox doesn't turn on. It's fan only powers on and runs really loud (burning smell
    too). the Xbox doesn't respond. I heard when the Power brick is plugged in the wall only it needs to have an orange light not green.when plugged in the Xbox too then it goes green.

    could this be caused by the power supply?
    Sounds like a power supply issue

    are you sure or is it a CPU issue what of the burning smell from the console when power supply is connected?

    Is my Xbox One X damaged? Insufficient Ventilation warning message.

    Thank you very much for your help! OK so please do not talk this the wrong way, but you did not entirely answer my question, the information you gave me was very helpful indeed but my real question was, "Is my Xbox One X damaged at all? Is it's lifespan
    shortened because of it overheating and displaying that warning message? And what about that burning smell it made when it was getting too hot, does that smell mean it melted something in the console and that it's permanently burnt/melted? or is that just
    the smell it makes when it's getting too hot? The console did shut down automatically so that does mean it saved the system from being destroyed correct?" the console runs perfectly now and it is in a very well ventilated area, i haven't heard the fan spin
    loud, I haven't smelt any burning sensation ever since I put it in a ventilated spot. So although it runs perfectly fine now, has it been damaged at all from the overheating that caused it to shutdown and display that warning message?
