The Kinect sensor for Xbox One is designed to self-correct whenever possible. For example, if the sensor is having a difficult time updating its firmware, it'll attempt to solve the problem before you see an error message. In the event it can't correct itself, you'll see one of two error messages for the Kinect sensor.
"Error: Kinect setup can't continue"
When you try to set up the Kinect sensor, you get the following error:
There's a problem

Note If you see this error during the console's initial setup, skip the Kinect setup portion and do the following steps after you set up the console.
Make sure the Kinect sensor is connected firmly to the console's Kinect port.
