Try unplugging the kinect and then the x-box power for a few minutes. Then plug the kinect in before reconnecting the power. If that doesn't work you may have to contact microsoft support, there should be a phone # on the package.

Twister Mania start up issues


Make sure to run the Kinect setup and calibration in the Xbox 360 Dash. Move all the way to the right and select kinect settings. Run the setup and follow the instructions there. Make sure to have a Kinect setup card handy. (comes with games.) This should help with any calibration issues. If that doesn't work, try signing in with a different account, or doing an xbox live sign in test.

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 kinect has a green light on but wont adjust to find me. i last used it a few month ago. but it hasnt moved since. iv done the kinect tuner but it wont move to find me


On the front of the Kinect sensor are windows that hide depth sensors, an RGB camera, and a multi-array microphone. Tilt it at certain angles and you can even make out a slightly flickering infrared light that helps the advanced Kinect camera scan the room. A green LED light flashes upon Kinect's bootup and remains solid when connected.

I can not play kinect with my xbox 360. i can do everthing except acess playing sonic etc. please help.


Do you have the Kinect hardware that you need to play kinect games. It looks like this..
vinayak_nair_21.jpg
If you have bought your Xbox 360 before kinect came out you will have to buy this hardware. If you do have this and you have the older XBOX did you connect the power adapter to the kinect that is provided in the box as only the newer XBOX S does not need a power adapter for it. If all is present then look at the bottom right corner for a video display which will show you what the kinect is looking at. If present then wave your hand and a hand icon will be presented on screen at the bottom, complete the wave and you will get a hand cursor. You can then use the cursor to select kinect hub and then select play game from it. Hope the kinect hardware is placed at an appropriate height to allow for it to see properly and has enough swivel space too as the camera automatically tilts up and down to keep the player in the center.
Hope this helps..

What does it mean when the kinect says "The kinect sensor can't move" We have tried multiple things to fix it and nothing it working. Thankyou.


The Kinect sensor has a motorized mount so the camera can adjust itself up and down to follow movements in the room. If you are getting that message something is either physically preventing it from moving or you have a manufacturing defect (any Kinect should still be under warranty and you should be able to simply exchange it for a working one)

I have a Kinect as well and can tell you that message isn't normal in its use so definately clear the area around the sensor or simply just return it for exchange as stated.
