You have a hardware malfunction. You need to return it to the place you bought it from, and if they won't help you, talk to Microsoft. They should give you a 100% refund or another system.

What happens when my xbox 360 arcade wont play any 360 games? My xbox 360 arcade will not play any of my 360 games. The disc are brand new. I bought the xbox 360 arcade used.


Find someone in your local area that can adjust the laser power level on the DVD drive. This is a temporary solution. A better solution is to buy a new drive off of ebay that is the same one that you have and change the PCB boards so you have the same PCB board in the new case with everything else. To see what drive you have, take the face plate off of the console. Look at the front of the DVD drive and there is a small hole on the lower right hand side of the drive. Look at the two wires inside the hole. Red and Black are a Samsung drive, White are a Lite-on drive, yellow are a Benq and a black plug is a hitichi.

This is very easy and only requires minimal soldering.

Can i put my x box 360 hard drive on an xbox arcade.


I assume you mean the XBOX 360 Arcade system.
Your 360 hard drive will work on all 360 systems.
It does not matter if you have a Pro or Elite or Arcade system, the Hard Drive is the same.

My brothers xbox 360 arcade won't display higher


If it isn't highlighted / selectable that means either the cable you are using or the TV you are connected to is not capable of displaying anything above 480p. You will either need to use a different type of video cable, or a different TV, or both.

Thanks,
Tim

Xbox not working


I am not 100% sure, but you may need to connect to xbox live or the internet and update it. I don't personally own an xbox 360, but I have heard my friends talking about this and how to fix it. Not a guarunteed solution, but you may consider it.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade

New xbox 360 arcade no screen or sound


to start off,what type of cable are you using??
since you've already tried using 2diff TVs,basically its with the console

try using a different AV CABLES, if it still doesnt work,try calling xbox support hotline for possible replacement of your cable or for processing a repair for the xbox if necessary..

since you just bought your console,try going back to the store where you bought it and have it replaced, because for the repalcement of the cable if you call xbox support,it will take 8-12business days for toureceive it and 2-3weeks for the turn around time of the repair for the xbox.

XBOX 360 ARCADE


E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known
to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected
directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.

Take it back if its brand new and have it replaced,

WE just bought my grandson an xbox 360 arcade console but our tv only has a coax single pin connection. What do we need to get him up and running.


Hook it up thru the DVD or VCR; or get a Cable-to-AV jack converter from Radio Shack (should only be about $10).
