Xbox kinect has red light with no message on tv

Hello, this is a first for me. I have yet to come across a Kinect with a problem. A quick search and I see that it's actually kind of common. From what I can find, and after a few calls, it seems the only solution I can find is this at xbox support. It seems to say it could be the cord or the power outlet or simply needing an update. From the Kinect, the cable should go to what looks like a splitter. There should be a little green light on it. If not, it may not be getting power but the red light would come on powered from the xbox itself which is not enough to power the Kinect of course. Try to plug the Kinect into another outlet. They say the xbox and Kinect are not suppose to go to a power bar, surge protector or extension cord. I know that sounds crazy but it's true. If another outlet works then you know it's just the outlet. If that doesn't work, can you borrow another cable from someone to try, that can eliminate issues too. If the other cord works you know that's all you have to replace. The other thing to try is putting a Kinect game into the console and see if it asks you for an update. That could be your issue too. Try these and if none of them work, I would think you need to replace the Kinect cables. Hopefully it's not the Kinect itself. If these don't help, you will most likely need a repair or the connect will have to be replaced :( I hope this helps, let me know.

My PS2 multitap has been working fine for years and now suddenly when plug it in the playstation in port 1or 2, the playstation will only read the controller in port A in the multitap so i can still only...

if you already tried to use a working controller on the other port and still it wont work it only means that the other port of your multi tap is already malfunctioning

I can't seem to get my ps2 silver multi tap to work

first of all make sure that the multitap is compatible because some multi tap for the thick console doesn't work on the slimline type

you can always check your console's manual for the compatible model of multitap for your console
