If your Xbox One power cord is not providing sufficient power to the console, it may lead to startup issues. Ensure that the power cord is securely connected to both the console and the power outlet.

Check the power outlet by plugging in another device to see if it is working. If the outlet is faulty, try plugging the Xbox One into a different power outlet or use a surge protector.

Inspect the power cord for any visible damage, such as frayed wires or bent connectors. If you notice any issues, replace the power cord with a new one from an authorized retailer or contact Xbox support for assistance.

Unplug the power cord from both the console and the power outlet, then wait for at least 10 seconds before plugging it back in. This can help reset the power supply and resolve minor issues.

If the power brick or power supply unit is the suspected problem, consider purchasing a third-party power brick from a reputable seller. Ensure that it is compatible with your Xbox One model to avoid any compatibility issues.

Perform a hard reset on your Xbox One by holding down the power button on the console for 10 seconds until it turns off completely. Then, unplug the power cord and wait for another 10 seconds before plugging it back in and turning on the console.

If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it may indicate a more serious hardware problem. In such cases, it is recommended to contact Xbox support or take your console to an authorized repair center for further assistance.

Remember to always handle the power cord with care, avoid pulling or twisting it forcefully, and keep it away from excessive heat sources or liquids to prevent damage.
