Kinect v2 turned off while working and its still off RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

     I've been using beta Kinect v2 for a while now and it suddenly stopped working (beta one) in the middle of execution of application 


    - if i plug in device there is no USB "connect" sound

    - all lights on kinect are off 

    - LED light on adapter is orange and does not change 

    - KinectMonitor and kinectService are running


    this happened after I installed Kinect v2 SDK v2.0 1409. 

    - this sensor is from beta preview series 

    - new sensor works (final) 


    Any ideas how to fix it or is it bricked ? 


    best regards,

  • Is it the black/white stripped version? If so, that version was a pre-release version of the hardware, which does not have a warranty. If you had paid to be part of the DPP program, the fee covered receiving a final release hardware product replacement. Those were shipped out to paid participants around the public release this summer. If you paid the fee, and did not receive your replacement contact

  • OK, it has no white stripes, is there a #recycle program ? it would be such a waste to just throw it away 

    is there any other solution to service it ?

  • I am not aware of any public repair services that can fix these.
