GAMES GOT STUCK IN THE XBOX 360 HALO EDITION THE 3RD TIME i USED IT


It needs a new drive chassis, you will have broken the little plastic tabs that hold the tray level and straight! you can replace the drive but the new drive will need either the old logic board off the broken drive fitted to the new drive or the dvd key dumped off the old drive and flashed to the new one to make it work.

The power brick on my xbox 360 is red and is not overheating yet i smaell burning plastic from my xbox 360 console anyone have any tips?


A red light on the xbox 360 power brick usually indicates the Xbox 360 console has a short circuit. Here is how to be sure:

1. Try unplugging the power brick from the wall and from the xbox 360.
2. Wait about 30 seconds and plug the power brick into the wall power outlet.
3. Make sure the indicator light on the power brick is orange. ( If it's not orange then get yourself a new power brick and try again ).
4. Plug the power brick into the Xbox 360 console and try to power it on.
If your power brick turns red or you get an immediate three red ring error than you will need to have the console professionally repaired.
If your warranty with Microsoft has expired; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers this service at a low flat rate and we pay for the return shipping.
Good Luck and I hope this has helped!

Your console has a general hardware failure, if your console is less than 3 years old, and has not been tampered with in any way:ie the console has not been opened, microsoft will fix it free of charge, visit www.xbox.com/support
If you need further advice comment.
If its not too much trouble remember to thumbs up this solution.

While trying to power up my xbox 360 the power brick has an amber/Orange light. When I hit the power button on the 360 I get a green center light and a quick green flash on the power brick, but then...


The red ring of death occurs when an Xbox 360 overheats and melts some of the internal solder that holds components together. This occurs because microsoft distributes them with low quality solder to save money. There are many people who can solve this problem in every state. I live in Rhode Island and there is one person who lives right down my street who does it. You can also send it back to microsoft if it's been less than 3 years since you bought it, because that will be covered under the warranty. -Good luck, and I hope this helps

WTF this morning i plugged in my 360 and it just made a hum sound and the thing doesnt turn ON ! LIKE not even A LIGHT , i cant tell if the power brick light is orange or red it worked fine like 5 hours...


yes that is a complete possibility. Ensure that the xbox power brick is not flashing red and is just on the standby orange color. Id recommend calling the people http://www.360-pros.com where you can get your xbox fixed for 60-100 dollars. I have used them before and found there work to be excellent and reliable. They fix all problems as i have seen many xbox's that have stopped working (mainly halo and older elite editions) not RROD either. If its broke they will fix it :).



first though some trouble shooting.


ensure that all cables are properly plugged in. video and power.

have u plugged the power directly in the socket and not a power strip?directly,no power strip
what is the light status on the power brick?green
what is the light status on the console?the RROD!
have u restarted and reinserted the cables blah blah?yes no use
be confident and answer!!i got mine within a 4-5 days,a delivery guy gave me a new one and took the old one(he probably had no clue what an xbox was!!,and this was all three times)
i am from India and actually was quite surprised that i got a new one three times!

call them asap and get urs pronto..GOW2 is coming!!
