My xbox 360 won't read my disc.

more than likely your laser has died or possible your whole drive that makes it abit more tricky try and look around for a repair service will probably only cost you £20 this is extremely easy to fix i have done many of these so it shouldn't be hard and please do not attempt it your self unless you know what your doing or you could end up turning your 360 into a paperweight and that wouldn't be good hope this has helped

my xbox loads for a few seconds then says disc is unreadable


This is a very straight forward solution.
Your laser module has begun to fail, and needs to be replaced.

With that said, we are able to repair any issues with the XBOX 360 console (and any other console for that matter), in a quick and affordable manner. Currently our turn around time is 2 days or less. (MUCH LESS than MICROSOFT!)

Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have.
