white blinking light on kinect azure


I ordered 2 Kinect azure a while back, but just got time to use them today.

First one is ok, everything working fine, but the second unit seems broken.
Using the same working cable setup I pluged the cables correctly, but the led indicator flashes in white, it is suposed to be a data problem but the very same cable setup get working my other unit.

Also tried this in 2 other machines and had the same issue.

Tried several usb 3.1 type C cables, nothing.

I did the homework but couldn't find any more info on this.

    @Jose David Ernesto Zelada Alfaro Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum!
    Flashing white means that the camera does not have a data connection to the host PC. You have mentioned, you are using USB 3.1. Is the cable you are using a power+data capable or just power? Some USB-C cables are power only.
