This is the symptoms of a worn laser. Doesn't matter which way the console is stored, the laser will wear out all the same. It takes more effore to read the Security Sector on a game than it does to read a DVD-Video, which is why movies still work. Get the laser replaced and you should be fine. You can eliminate laser wear by installing your commonly played games to HDD.

SOURCE: X-BOX 360 not playing games

Are you sure that in the system settings the xbox is set to Load game instead of boot to dashboard? This will be located on the blade on the far right of the dashboard. If no help, try this: First, a stupid step - Make sure a compatible game disc is in the xbox, and turn it off. If it continues to boot to dashboard upon powering up, you could always try removing the system updates by: 1. Turn the console off 2. Press and hold the small sync button on the front of the console (the one you use to connect new controllers) 3. Turn on the console whilst still holding the sync button 4. By the time it has booted to the dashboard, the updates should be cleared. As the first version of the dashboard did not have the option to boot to dashboard by default, game discs should start normally now. If this is the case, feel free to re-download the updates from xbox live. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: x-box 360 won't read discs

sounds like the reader lens has burnt out on it .is your xbox stood upright ? seem to hear the lenses burn out alot faster if the consol is upright as opposed to being led down, you can buy the parts from ebay or other computer shops , or send it back to microsoft to repair , you are able to lay downloaded games as they play off of the hard drive memory , where as the disc games obviously read off of the disc when the laser gets tired they work intermitantly then eventually stop all together.
hope this is of help to you
kind regards

Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.

I've installed My Horse and Me but every time I try to play it, it just runs the set-up to 'Modify', 'Repair' or 'Remove' the game. It won't let me play it.


I've this same issue, if someone's got a solution, please do share. :( I'm no noob when it comes to laptops but also not too much of a nerd either, i've ran the installation as administration and checked all the possible boxes and also changed the graphics. Still nothing.

Apex DVD/Tv combo GT2015DV won't play dvd's


Something is wrong..crbr799 your DVD-TV has a TV-DVD button on the right front to switch from TV to DVD play...OPEN button on left side ,place DVD in tray, close & press PLAY...
I something simulator that needs the remote control for the SPECIAL functions....by the way the ORIGINAL r\c is $135 to $155, a replacement ($35) will turn the TV\DVD on ( which you can do without the r\c) and NOT function with anything else.
P.S. they will try to sell you universal r\c that work with the CABLE boxes, the ones that you pay a monthly fee!!

I bought a DVD set from Ireland and it won't play on my DVD player or my Wii. Is there a setting I need to change?


Hi there!
North American TVs, consoles and DVD players play video and games in the NTSC format (region 1), while Ireland's and most of Europe's play in PAL(region 2). You best bet to be able to watch your dvd set will be to purchase a dvd player that plays multi regions (these will be a bit more expensive) or to order a region 2 dvd player from Ireland or somewhere in Europe that uses region 2.

Hope this helps!

Can't load up a 3d game to play on my computer


If your Graphic Card does not support the 3D options, you won't be able any 3D PC games!

You have to look at your PC/Laptop specifications & the PC games requirements to play any higher graphic PC games. For any PC gaming PCs you have to install "DirectX' ie. latest version and updating graphic cards drivers too.

Hope it helps.
