When you try to turn on your xbox one and suddenly notice that your xbox wont turn on but it makes only sound when you turn on xbox. This issue was experienced by many users and most of the time the culprit was power brick or power cable and for few of them hard resetting xbox worked for them. 

Actually whenever you press the Power button it makes that very light noise like as if it’s almost starting on. But it doesn’t fully turn on and no matter how many times you press it it’s just straight up won’t turn on.

I have also gone through the same issue with my xbox. I also replaced my xbox with a new xbox but the same issue was raised with the new xbox. 

This made me think of what actually the problem is with? 

What I found was the problem isn’t your xbox so you don’t have to worry about replacing your xbox. 

The power is the reason why it’s not turning on is because you have an issue with your power brick so if you just buy a replacement power brick  from Amazon though it is not of xbox brand but it works either way.
