Xbox One S - Turns on, but powers off after 30 seconds, no visual on screen

Hey guys!

I just picked up an Xbox One S thats not working. Plug it in and press the power button, it lights up, fan starts running, and seems to be booting up, but nothing shows on the screen and it shuts back down after 30 seconds.

I assume this wouldn’t be a southbridge issue, would it? I figured a problem with that would shut the system down sooner.

It’s apu mate toss it in the trash you shouldn’t have wasted your money on it

yea, good thing is i only have $40 in it, so i can use it as a donor board

Try replacing hdd…


Yeah, agree, try hard drive first.

Yep yep, that was it! Thanks!
