We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
All I did this morning was hold the power button on the console for 10 seconds and waited untill the light on the power brick turned orange. Then turned the system back on using the controller and it worked.
I agree with above. I guess most of the issues were actually resolved late last night but unless you hard reset it wouldn't work. I tried it after seeing somebody post it around 11:30pm and it worked like at charm! Give it a shot!!
