It only says this if you are using it on an old xbox 360 because it needs a separate power supply.....it will only run from usb in the new slim models

SOURCE: why does my kinect say

Try plugging it in with the power adaptor that came with it. I am sure that you probably have it plugged into the back of the system of the slim model unit. so try that and hook it up through usb there could be a issue with your kinect port.

if that does fix it I would call microsoft and get it repaired under warrenty.

A likely reason this problem is occurring is that you are drawing to much power from a single outlet. Try plugging in your Xbox to a different electrical socket. If this problem persists please comment so that I can try to further assist you.

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!

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.
