Exactly how prevalent is this? Type 1 in chat if you encountered this
Hey man, the exact same thing just happened to me.
I was able to set up the system no problem. I start Titanfall 2, no problem. After about 45 minutes of playing, my screen goes black and the system turns off. I press the Xbox logo, nothing. Unplug, then replug, nothing. Press the Xbox logo again on console for 10 seconds, nothing. I swap out the one x with my old one s, but keep the same cords, my one s powers up no problem.
ÖMy One X is dead.
Just contact MS, and report the issue, it sounds like a software issue.
Since 100% of owners are not on neogaf. Other forums have many reported cases.
LOL,since when are 2 reported cases considered "plagued".
Itís all anecdotal but at this stage itís impossible to know. Could turn out to be a launch 360 or a (insert moderately solid machine name here)
It seems to be a bug rather than a hardware issue so I will wait and see if itís patched.
For me it was going from Titanfall 2 to home that seems to trigger the fault.
No issues here with tons of hours in hot temps. Can't even hear it run.
'Plagued' certainly isn't the phrase that should be getting thrown about..
See you on the Battlegrounds!
Yeah that wasn't a good look for Microsoft. Also sounds like the random shutting down problem stated elsewhere in this topic is a thermal problem. System shutting down to prevent overheating.
The gamers nexus teardown showed that the thermal paste was completely died out and crusty on the cpu. There may have been an iffy batch or something.
I once had crusty tim on my cpu (hadn't used it in 3 months) and the cpu thermal throttled like crazy even on windows boot. Replacing the tim made a world of difference.
I also replaced the tim on my ps4 which made it a pretty much silent console.
seems like it's just a faulty console.
my screen goes black and the system turns off
There probably was one already at launch, no need for the Sony too™ crap.
I guess we better make a thread for all the faulty ps4 pro units too....
Seriously though using terms like "plagued," "widespread," and "many" is very hyperbolic at this point. Only MS knows what they have sold vs. failures and improperly reporting failures with terms like above is very suspicious.
It's a non-story. People who have the issues can exchange hassle free. Every console has failures and issues, including the PS4. Manufacturing isn't a perfect process.
I will gladly eat my own crow if this actual lay turns into a "red ring" issue.
