    Xbox Turning on by Itself


    Hello Everyone,

    Just want to know why my xbox one turns on randomly and unexpectedly while it is off. I do not have kinnect for it and want to see if it's a defective xbox or if there is a fix for it.

    Thanks!

    :)

    XBOX turns on by itself?

    No software compromise will turn on your console. It's more likely a rogue controller being pressed down somewhere. Do you have one of the dvd remotes is maybe someone messing with you from another room? If someone is using your tag you would get an alert
    when you sign in that you've been recently signed in on another console. This happened to me I found a controller in my computer desk that I had forgotten about and when it got moved the button pressed down.

    XBOX turns on by itself?

    Hello! This is a very strange issue indeed! You don't live in a shared housing complex, where your neighbors next door may also have consoles, do you? Sometimes, this can result in interference between different people's consoles.

    -

    If this isn't the issue, it may be something called wireless interference. Do you have many wireless devices in the room, especially around the Xbox, that could be causing interference? Things like cell phones, remotes, and microwaves. If you suspect
    this is the cause, try removing such devices from around the Xbox, or the room entirely. After doing so, try again, and see if this fixes the issue.

    -

    If after trying the above, you still have this issue, check all USB connections. Things like USB keyboards, and even a Kinect sensor, can wake the Xbox and cause it to power on. If you think this may be the issue, try removing all USB connections after
    powering your Xbox 360 off, and see if it helps remedy the situation.

    -

    Lastly, if none of the above work, unplug your Xbox 360 and try to clean the power button with a microfiber cloth. Dust and grime can cause the power button to accidentally activate on its own at times.

    Xbox turning on by itself

    Yes this a common thing with the console. There are a few things to look at first I'm assuming you talking about the original Xbox One and not the S model. The original Xbox one uses touch sensitive switch to power the unit on and off, they are sensitive to
    a ground fault condition. This can be caused by having the console plugged into a power strip that is a surge suppressor. The Xbox One console have build in surge suppressors so they need to pulled directly into the wall outlet and not a surge suppressor
    power strip ( https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/connect-power-supply ). Also make sure it's not on a circuit that has a GFI breaker, these are the ones like to
    bathrooms usually.

    With some Samsung TVs, turning on your TV may also turn on your Xbox.

    The other thing is a controller that might be faulty and sending the power on signal but the controller does not power on itself. Pull the batteries from your controllers and see if you console still randomly turns on.

    Another thing to realize is your Xbox One has an IR sensor to receive remote control signals and some remotes can send the correct signals to power on your console. Logitech Harmony remote do this. There are apps on Cell phones that will also do this as
    some cell phone like Samsungs have an IR transmitter. Try to cover the IR sensor on you console if you think you have something that might be sending the IR signal.

    Another thing that will turn on your console the the Xbox App on windows 10, iphone, ipads or Android phones/tables. The device only need to be on the same network as your Xbox. I know of students in an dorm using the same network accidentally turning
    on and off wrong consoles, the same true in hotels (those are usually not accidentally). You can go into the setting on the console and require app connection to authenticate before connecting.

    With all these things the most common cause is usually the first one, not plugged directly into the wall outlet. The next is a rouge IR signal (from a neighbors house!!!). I think MS second is different them mine which is a controller issue (pull the batteries).

    I hope this all helps.

    XBOX turns on by itself?

    Thanks for all the help, although it turns out that my Guitar Hero controller was under a load of stuff in my bedroom and was on, hence causing the xbox to turn on by itself and to show an extra controller being connected XD

    Xbox turns itself on

    I have this problem as well. I have only had my xbox for three days! Did I get a bum unit? It just randomly turns itself on. I'd like to find out how to make it stop doing this. Has a solution been found?
