Kinect doesn't hear me. Help.

#1Tomcat94Posted 2/20/2014 5:43:04 PM
Ever since the most recent update, my Kinect is no longer functional. I can not use it for voice commands. It still recognizes me and signs me in, and I have already attempted recalibrating the kinect under settings. Still no dice. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I don't see how the update broke the kinect. It doesn't make any sense

Actually this is a problem with the latest update, only a few consoles have been effected so far but the new update actually causes the kinnect to draw more power putting more strain on the internal components and in some cases like yours causes the mic to stop working.

Perhaps I should clarify before you trash your system that I was joking, I have no idea what is wrong with your kinect.

Do a FULL reset of the console by doing one of the following:

Hold power button on console for 10 seconds
Change console name
Turn off instant on before turning console off

haha, Rajitsun just agrees with anything negative, doesn't even bother to source or think he might look like a fool for claiming something someone made up was a joke.

Ignore the trolls, but looks like TC got what he came for
