What is the weird grinding Noise my Xbox is making?

So I bought a Xbox one S all digital edition a few months ago and it has been doing this of an on since I bought it, I’d say within a week. It makes a very high pitched grinding noise kind of like a cd or dvd is in there but sounds worse, sometimes it does this when it is on, sometimes this results in my console crashing. However the next time I try to turn it on it doesn’t work and it just makes that grinding noise. Other times it just randomly starts when I turn it on, when the grinding happens the Xbox light will blink on both my remote and console and eventually it will shut off. When it is behaving normally it will automatically turn on my TV but not when it is making the noise. This is very frustrating thanks for any help you can give me.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Hi Regan!

Since there is no drive inside the all digital edition, I think it’s harddisk related.

Could also be the fan.

Do you hear the sound all the time long, or just in the beginning?

Anyway, since you bought it a few months ago, you should have warranty on it. So I would bring it back for a new one.

The read head on the hard drive may be touching the platters, which isnt supposed to happen. Id bring it back for a refund.
