Microsoft kinect sensor for xbox 360 wont work unless my controller is turned off

My kinect microphone wont work unless my controller is switched off. As soon as the controller is off, the microphone works and my friends can hear me. My other xbox has kinect and works perfectly but this one wont. Is it because this one is an original and I have had to use a usb/power cable to connect it to the xbox? HELP!!!

SOURCE: I can hear trough my headset but not talk

okay, this is obvious but first of all make sure this switch on your headset is not on mute. If alls good there go to your dashboard settings and you should see communication and make sure none of these are blocked. If this also isn't the problem it looks like you are going to need a new headset. It should have a years warrenty if that helps?

It sounds like your headset is worn out. We are constantly replaceing them at my house. The little wires inside the cord where they go into the plug end tend to break and fail to give good/reliable conection.

You can try cleaning the plug end and checking that the receptical in the controler is free of debris, if that works great, if not buy a new headset.

Good luck

you simply need to buy a new headset, those things are so cheap.

The default Microsoft Xbox 360 headsets are very faulty.

You will probably be stuck buying a new one, or may I even such a higher-class headset such as the Turtle Beach.

www.bestbuy.com is an example retailer of such product.

Kinectic requires update


You must update. Xbox requires it for proper functioning in the xbox kinect system. This enables the xbox to recognize your kinect camera and adds more features. So you not updating it wont let it work. Its the way Xbox companies makes their money.

My kinect does not turn on the light stays on red


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.

Trying to connect the kinect


First off make sure you have at least 190 mb of space in your HDD before trying to set up your kinect.
Setup:
Step 1: Make sure your xbox 360 is properly connected to the television with the AV cables and power cable to an outlet.
Step 2: Place sensor under or on top of your television on a stable flat surface.
Step 3: Depending on your xbox the sensor has two different connections. If you have the new slim xbox 360 then you do not need the extra add on connection you simply connect it to a special port for it on the back of your xbox 360 slim. If it is a older version xbox then you will need the extra power adaptor since it will not work without it.(Cable with power connection)
Step 4; (ONLY FOR OLDER VERSION XBOX 360): If you have a wireless connection adaptor unplug it from the usb port in the back of the xbox 360 and connect the kinect sensor's power adaptor into the port you took the wireless connection adaptor off of. There should be a special cable that will act as an extension for the wireless connection adaptor you unplugged this is so you can connect it directly to the usb ports in the front of the xbox 360. Then plug the end with the power outlet connector of the kinect sensor power adaptor into the wall socket.
Step 5: Turn on the xbox 360 and the kinect sensor should move up and down to adjust.
Step 6: Put kinect game in and it will guide you through kinect settings and your on your way to start playing! Have Fun!

Does a bluetooth earpiece work for a xbox 360 kinect


No a bluetooth headset will not work with the Kinect. The Kinect has a mic built in to the unit to pick up sound from the entire room.

Trying to connect kinect.... its saying that it has insufficient power


Hi Eddie,
Try with different USB ports if you are using old XBOX and getting message as " insufficient power". It seems to be a adapter issue why don't you visit store and exchange the XBOX 360 Kinect device.

Thank you for using Fixya.

I have got the xbox kinect an it is saying that the senser is not leavel


Error: The Kinect Sensor is not level (C0051209)
Place the sensor on a level surface and try again. Here's what to do to fix this problem:
- Turn off your Xbox 360 console. - Make sure the Kinect sensor is positioned on a flat, level surface. - Turn your console on to see if the problem still occurs.
This error can also occur if your sensor is very hot or cold. In this case, wait for the sensor to reach room temperature (approximately 70 °F or 21 °C), and then try using the sensor again.
If these steps do not solve the problem, the sensor will need to be repaired. To start the online repair process, go to myservice.xbox.com.

I bought a new xbox with 250gb, when i turned it on it says please insert disc that came with device but it didn't come with a disc, I never heard of an xbox coming with a instalation disc, help PLEASE!


If you have a Kinect Sensor connected to the Xbox 360 S, turn off the console first and remove the Kinect Sensor. Then, restart the console and go through the initial set up. After the set up is complete, turn off the console and reconnect the Kinect Sensor. Restart the console and you will be prompted to insert the game disc that came with the device, which is Kinect Adventures. Insert the disc and it will update the console then go through the Kinect set up. Problem solved.
