Question about Microsoft Kinect Sensor for XBOX 360

1 Answer

I bought the xbox Kinect and I have a media room so the xbox is in the back of the room and TV in front. I got two 10 ft extension cables for the kinect sensor, but it will not work. I can get the light to go on and pass the sound test, but then it will tell me that it is not getting signal. Are the two cables so long that there is no signal? Help! Alex

You need at least 4m from the kinect to you for it to function correctly, if you are nearer than that you can try putting the kinect higher up which will gain you some distance

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 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).

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.
