My xbox 360 has 110V. i have portable transformers that say 3A 250V, 6A 125V. i live in the philippines so our outlet has 220V. can i use it for my xbox 360 kinect?

I live in Norway and our outlet has 230V, and I can use my Xbox + Kinect without any problems. And basicly, the Xbox 360(both original and slim) can be used on outlets from 210V up to 240V safely.

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.

How to get kinect update without signing into xbox live

You have to be signed into an Xbox live account to update any Xbox games.
If you don't feel like creating a gold account, you can just create a silver (free) account on your xbox.
This will allow you to recieve all the updates your heart desires.

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..
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..

How to connect the xbox kincet

If your Kinect only has one cord coming off of it, that should go into the back of your Xbox where there is a color coded slot (orange).

I recently bought the kinect and it worked fine at first. However ive come to play it tonight but its asking for a system update. I dont have xbox live, is there another way to get this sorted?

it is possible to get the updated dashboard without connecting to xbox live, you need to have the KINECT sensor, attach it with all components and insert KINECT ADVENTURES(which is the update), wait for the process to complete... abbra cadabbra i own 1 modded offline non-banned 360 and 1 stock online 360 both with new dashboard update

I.m trying to play a kinect game and the kinect tuner gives me this error code (coooooc2)

Hi Chris

Kindly specify if you have a "slim" version of the Xbox 360 or the older one?

The error code you have specified here seems to triggering due to a hardware issue of your Kinect device.

If you have a older version of Xbox 360 which requires you to use a separate power supply for Xbox 360 try these steps

  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Make sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet.
  3. Make sure the USB connector is plugged into the back of the console.
  4. The light located near the middle of the split cable should be green.
Post that re-calibrate your Kinect tuner and check if it's working else you may have to get your Kinect device replaced from Microsoft
