Error C0051209 occurs when your Kinect sensor isn’t level
You see the following error code and message:
Error: The Kinect Sensor is not level
Error code: C0051209
This may mean that your Kinect sensor is not on a level surface.
Here’s what to do to fix this problem:
- Turn off your Xbox 360 console.
- Make sure the Kinect sensor is positioned on a flat, level surface.
- Turn on your console to see if the problem still occurs.
This error can also occur if your sensor is very hot or cold. In that case, wait for the sensor to reach room temperature (approximately 70°F or 21°C), and then try using the sensor again.
If these steps don't resolve the problem, go to the Online Service Centre and click Start Request to request a repair.
