xbox series s turning off by itself.. power button fading when turned on!


Novice Member
Hi all,

I've had my series s for about a year now and I had no problems in the beginning. I stopped playing xbox altogether for about 2 months only to find that when I returned.. there were issues with the power supply. Whenever I turn on the xbox the power button fades (which indicates low power) and it automatically turns off by itself after about 10 minutes. I dont really want to send it off to Microsoft for a repair as they charge a lot of money. Has anyone else experienced this issue or has any solutions that may help?

Thank you very much,

Worth checking the warranty status on the Microsoft website firstly, I sent in a controller that was over a year old and they sent me out a new one.

If you have your console plugged into a extension lead, try it straight into a wall socket see that helps 1st before contacting MS.
