How To Fix Start-up Errors?

1. Launching Xbox Trouble-shooter

You will most likely have to launch the Xbox trouble-shooter to fix any error codes that are stopping the Xbox from starting up. In most cases, this option is available on the screen under the “Something went wrong” message but sometimes the screen is stuck on the Xbox logo. So to access this option, follow the given instruction below:

Turn your console off completely. To do this, press the Xbox power button and then also remove all the cords.
Now, wait at least three minutes.
After that, re-attach the cords and re-plug your console to a power outlet. And turn the power button back on.
Now locate the bind button at the side of the Xbox and the eject button on the front of the Xbox.
This part is a little tricky, you have to press and hold down on the eject button and bind button at the same time.
And then also press the Xbox button.
The Xbox will then start to turn on, but still do not let go of the bind and eject button.
Wait until you hear the Xbox one start-up tones at least twice before you let go of the bind and eject buttons.
This will allow you to successfully launch the Xbox start-up trouble-shooter.
