Power supply buzzing noise

This morning I woke up and noticed a buzzing or humming sound coming from the xbox one power supply. It's not loud but my room is dead quiet and it's annoyingly noticeable. The console is off, but I have the quick start up option enabled. Is there a problem with the power supply or is this normal? How can I fix this issue?

Hi there Smic Xtreme I would suggest you try unplugging the power brick while the console is off for 1-2 minutes and see if that helps at all.

I have the same as well. kinda annoying as you can just hear the buzzing in the background when there is not any noise to mask it. Hope they will improve the design for this as never saw this with previous supplies.

Yup, it was cuz of the instant on feature.  I kinda figured that's what it was... But I was hoping it wasn't. Very sad, I won't be using the instant on feature cuz the power supply noise is too annoying.

I have the noise everytime the console is switched on. It's a light buzzing/fizzing sound. Is this normal?

The power supplies are low quality junk. That's the problem. I know some people are having issues with the console, but the design is great when it comes to the cooling/fan. They cheaped out on the PSUs though, which is a silly thing to do given that these PSUs are going to be on 24/7 if people use the sleep feature of the Xbox One.

Has anyone actually taken a Xbox One PSU apart?  Mine is fine, but I'd be curious to see what brands of components they are using, especially capacitors.

That said, I can't imagine MS going cheap on the PSU Components, I suppose it's possible, I just don't see it as very likely.

I got the same Problem. The Fan of the Power Supply seems to run at full rpm at all time, even if the XBox is turned off in Standyby Mode. The Fan NEVER turns off or slows down, only Solution for me here is to not use the Standby Mode(Fast Boot Mode), which would be another Feature not working.

X-Box Support says its supposed to turn off in Standbymode after a few Seconds and that it is not supposed to be this noisy at all.

Its a bad Situation because Microsoft can´t provide any new Power-Bricks and repair seems to take 2-3 Weeks

Xbox Support are wrong about it turning off. When the Xbox is in sleep mode, the white light stays on on the PSU and the fan continues to run. That is by design. The issue is the noise. The PSU is louder than the Xbox One itself when it's turned on, which somewhat defeats the object of making a super-quiet console. If there was a third party, high quality silent PSU for the Xbox One, I would buy one in a heartbeat.
