Hey,

how old is your xbox? start with a lens cleaner canned air could be carefully used to blow dust out incase there is dust, but the lens cleaner disk will do the same thing.

If your device is covered by warranty I suggest you take advantage of the free service if a lens cleaner doesnt help, il look one up for you

Thanks,
Ekse

    see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
    Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

    Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
    This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

    You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

    If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

    It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

I'm losing my connection...


It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

Pogo wont load games


This should get you started on trouble shooting the issue.

https://help.ea.com/article/help-my-game-wont-load

This is a link to POGO support, read all the information and follow the instructions. Most the time this will fix issues with POGO.

I have had cases that Internet Exporer would not work no matter what we tried. In those cases I have downloaded and used Firefox (link for downloading below).

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
