Kinect 2 DOA? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having trouble connecting to my Kinect 2 sensor. I have installed the SDK and the adapter light is white. The system makes the USB connection chime when the device is plugged and unplugged from my system's USB 3.0 port. But the sensor itself has no lights indicating that it is on. No green light or anything. And the Configuration Verification thingy says the kinect is not found. I have no way to tell if this is my system or if this kinect sensor is dead. I am on Razer Blade Stealth Core i7 Windows 10.

  • I believe the solution was to unplug the sensor from the adapter base and then replug it. I took mine to a friend and after pretending to be dead for them it suddenly came alive and now it works on my machine too! Hoorah the magic of using other people's bodies to compel technology to embarrass you in front of your friends.
