Xbox One S (1681)
This page applies to the Xbox One S, Xbox One S All Digital, and all of the associated special editions, because they all have the same motherboard. Note: Some ICs may vary.
All Xbox One S models have a built in power supply, unlike the Xbox One.
Because of the vent being on the top of the console, water damage is common.
WARNING: The disc drive is married to each console. For a proper disc drive change, change the PCB inside the new disc drive to the old one. Not doing so will render the console unusable.
|Shuts off after 10 seconds with fan spin||
Verify disc drive is connected properly, verify hard drive is healthy. Dead hard drive can cause this.
Check if you hear power supply chirping. Try inserting a disc. If chirping power supply and/or disc unsuccessful, you may have a shorted 12v rail/bad power supply.
if not the power supply check mosfets on board under heatsink they commonly fail on xbox one S
|Turns on but no output (black screen)||
Possible dead hard drive. Try going into safe mode. Possible HDMI circuit issues.
|"Something went wrong" error on boot||
Possible corrupt (or too old) OS. Possible dead hard drive.
Try reinstalling the Xbox operating system with a USB drive, following instructions on screen. If that fails, try a different pen drive, or you need to replace the HDD, or the recovery image is too old, and the device is trying to prevent a software downgrade. If you just downloaded the recovery image, wait for the next recovery image (usually takes 1-2 weeks), and try again
|Beeps but doesn't turn on or shuts down after 1-10 seconds||
Check for corrosion around TPS51916 RAM IC
A beep on and off error is the worst of the worst. It can be something very obvious, or a random blown resistor somewhere in a group of 100 components, and anything in between.
|Optical drive not reading games after changing optical drives but it can read CD's & Blueray disks.||
