Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I've read all the fixs and agree the laser is dirty or misaligned. ? #1 how do I find out if my XBOX is warrantied by MS? I can follow up on Games Stop to see if I bought insurance there. Would a commercial DVD cleaning disc be a quick fix before buying a new drive, and before that checking the laser alignment. I admit I modded my original exbox and it was sweet plus I updated the drive and wiring and laser power for faster reading... Can you do that with the 360, I dont want to open this. I am terminally ill Disabled and live on $1,200 a month Social Security disability. Would one run on a commercial DVD cleaning disc ruin an already shot laser?
1. MS gives everyone a 2 year warrenty, unless you had opened the machine already then your warrenty is VOID
2. Would a commercial DVD cleaning disc be a quick fix? Depending on how bad the laser is broken. If it's dirty yes it would help to a certain degree, but remember these cleaning discs are for maintenace purposes, not to fix the problem. If the laser is misaligned then the disc will do nothing to help you.
3. First of all, if you MOD your xbox 360 it will VOID your warrenty so be very careful with modifications. Secondly, if you get a mod that actually REMOVES the laser and replaces it with another one it would be O.K. if your warrenty is up. If your warrenty is not up, then contact MS about getting a new system. They may have a pay some money, but it's better than buying an entire new system.
4. Is the laser is broken, running the cleaning disc will not help it nor ruin it further.
I hope this helps you. Good luck!
