Hey nickman 1234 i understand your issue my best advice to you is to call the manfuctor and tell them they have you mail it back so it can be fixed and they might send out a different one to you for meantime or call the store that you got it from and explain to them more because from the way its sounds its going to end up scratching your games ok man

Xbox 360s makes a weird sound when it reads a disc and shuts down


Sounds like the drive is very dirty, or going out. Try cleaning it, or just replace it.

I have a xbox 360 that i got through bell 3 years ago.. Last week it got 3 red rings of death what should i do to get my 360 fixed??


Check out the xbox website and use the warranty verification tool to see if it is still under warranty. I believe the consoles with three red rings get an additional couple of years under warranty...

Loud noise when turned on


Loud grinding noises are always a BAD sign of things to come. It could have been that something was in the fans on your unit or it could have been the hard drive. Either way, I would return it if it is still under warranty. You will not regret this.

Xbox won't shut down


HI there,

im guessing you have some problems with your Elites motherboard, could possibly be damaged electronics within the motherboard, as it is the motherboard on the Xbox which prepares the system for shutdown when the button is pressed and also wirelessly through the controller.

Luckily Xbox systems come with 5 years warranty. and because this is potentially a hardware issue, i would recommend contacting Xbox customer support to solve this issue. their contact information can be found on http://www.xbox.com/support

Hope this helps

Xbox turning on


When the xbox 360 is plugged into a power outlet, power is at the "entrance" of the console is stopped or held. When there is an internal hardware issue, some of the power leaks into the console, turning it on. If you want to fix the issue, I would suggest calling microsoft for repair. (only if you are under warranty) Otherwise, find a better repair company.

The grinding noise is natural, it is the console's way of turning on.

Loud grinding, spinning noise with game in console.


Even if it is still playing dvds it might be the dvd-rom drive, usally it spins a game faster than a dvd. Or it could be the harddrive if it was trying to save something. try to download a demo or something to check the hard drive.
