After months of waiting for an Xbox Series X, I find mine has a loose screw with no indication as to where it goes or how to fix it. What would you do?
Updated the story with additional users reporting a similar experience.
statistically most of those problems appearing on the first console batches (as probably they r a bit rushed to catch the launch day.......i m curious to see if PS5 will have any
Sounds like they screwed up. Sorry not sorry
Honestly, Well done! ha!
There's the exit.
Is anyone surprised they have a few screws loose? Play me out Johnny.
Well someone must have lost a screw
Nailed it. Such a riveting reply!
Ms is just screwing around with us.. 😬 I for one am not surprised about this. After all, they did release a black tool box 😜🤣 oh man, I crack myself up.
Xbox fans: Nuh, screw it.
😂😂😂I liked this like lol
😂 nice 😂😂
I had a feeling the creators of Xbox Series X had a screw loose somewhere
It seems like Xbox fans are getting screwed.
That guy was screwed over... Lol
Well ACG's PS5 just stopped working completely so yes there are problems with the PS5 as well.
Yes, because he was using external storage before it was patched.
Falling screw? did something like this occur in the previous generations. If that happened to me and a defect arises, The retailer will never accept the unit for warranty, they will insist that I tried to open the system and my warranty is voided.
There not rushed they where made in plenty of time. Microsoft only made around 3million Sony made 10. Both kept the number of units low because of the build cost for each. They where made in plenty of time. Hopefully it’s just a bad batch
The answer to that stupid question is no there was no screw. No problems at all.
I miss the days where you could just put the screw in the disk tray and the console would take care of it. Manufacturers need to get there crap together
I would just immediately send it back, no telling how that will affect the console.
Surely this would be covered under warranty
no way in hell I'd be sending a brand new console back to the repair warehouse. Exchange for another brand new one only. MS's Xbox repair shops are absolute low grade trash, have been since 360.
Nope the retailer will not accept the return , they will onsist that you tried to open the system and that screw os proof.
Like Bender says... "screws fall out all the time" (breakfast club reference for all the young folk out there). I'd put it back in but its a chassis screw so it wont impact performance.
I dunno man, i've seen similar screws holding anything from cooling fans to power supplies and even the disc drives while repairing consoles. None of which you want having any give/wiggle. I would just send it back
The world is an imperfect place.
Better be careful, that's the screw that holds the duct tape in place!
Yeah...it's 2 xboneX ducktaped together afterall...
i would be very annoyed if that happened to me.
Made in China
Screw it, probably not important.
“Screw it, probably not important” That’s what she said
Then she gives birth 9 months later... Wait what?
Looks like a drive lock screw, commonly used to hold the laser head fixed during transport. They typically don't have thread locker on them though.
The thread locker failed 😁 .
Thread lock wasn’t even touched on the screw.
Careful your cpu fan might fly out
I'm more shocked it's gold and not black like the console.
Whats interesting is watching Spawnwave disassemble the XSX, 90 percent of the outer screws are black. It would pretty darn hard for a deep internal to make it out of the chassis and into the box. Spawnwave did a great job breaking it down.
It wasn't laying in the box when I took it out. It was actually IN the Xbox Series X.
But yes, Spawn Wave did an amazing job.
Yikes... that's not a good look
This is the result of the screwing guy working from home covid strikes again
MY series S is fine, not had any probs as of yet.
3 people disagree so you must have had problems.
I'd assume they dissagreed because this is a Series X fault, not Series S.
I assume they disagreed because the comment said, “Xbox.”
You got screwed Que the drums

Mine was fine BUT I’ve had to restart this mf like 6 times. I’ll go to start a game and it will straight hang up. Like the signal keeps starting and stopping. I restart the Series X, start the same game and it starts right up. Happened with outer worlds, Tekken 7, Forza Horizon 3 on disc, Walking Dead the final season... it’s to the point that I’m not even reclining on my sofa anymore because as soon as I switch a game it’s probably going to crash.
Umm I recommend you make a claim with tech support as soon as possible because that sounds like something that will only get worse for you.
Talk about having some loose screws!
I'm claiming sabotage myself...
Lets hope this isn't wide spread.
Looks like the story was just updated to show other people are reporting same thing? Guess we'll see.
Fallout is now exclusive to Xbox
Lol very clever
Haha well done.
Uwww more industrial espionage like with the 360 disk drive.
Hmmm, looks like food for the ol extra screws jar.
It'll be fine...
