  3. "X Box On" command not working.
2 years ago#1
So I buy my Xbox one, set it up, calibrate my kinect and voila, it does everything its supposed to for the next month, no hiccups.

For some reason, as of this week, my XB1 will not start on voice command. Nothing about my gamespace has changed, it should still work exactly the same. I need to know if other people are having this problem because it's really bothering me. The xbox still recognizes all my menu driven voice commands with very little problem, but it will not start up. I re-calibrated it, changed the lighting, spoke louder, softer, tried speaking to it in an American accent (I'm from Canada), and still nothing...thoughts??

Make sure your power light is white. If it's orange voice commands won't turn it on.

Go to settings/kinect and make sure you hadn't accidentally turned it on power saving mode

This is the exact same problem I am having. I made a topic the other week and followed some suggestions but it still does not work.

The Xbox On only works for me if it is within a few hours of it being turned off. If I go to bed and try and do it the next morning it will not work. Also the instant game resume no longer works either.

I have recalibrated the Kinect, unplugged everything and I still have the problem. I have learnt to just accept it, I may try a factory reset but my broadband is so bad that Dead Rising 3 took 3 days to install and download the patch last week, I will probably do a factory reset ago once I have finished DR3.
