Xbox wont turn on!!

My xbox was fine, but one day it started to turn off. Then in order to be able to play i had to put it in different positions b/c if not it would turn off. Now it just doesn't turn on anymore. This is my second xbox with this problem. I've changed the cables and it still wont work. Please help me. Thanx. Sincerly, miguel.

Re: xbox wont turn on!!

Several possible problems. Open up the xbox 6 screws underneath (4 beneath the pads and 2 under the stickers), See if the fans are still spinning, may be causing it to overheating. In some of the early xbox ms didn't properly solder the power supply connectors, if thats the case you can buy a new power supply for the xbox. Check out a website like lots of great information there. It sounds like the power connector to the power supply on the inside has a flaky connection.

U might just have a overheating prossesor.try cleaning the vents with an airosol spray and either adding a prossesor fan to the vent or setting the xbox infront of a large fan to help cool it .

My disc wont play

Try your xbox in different position. sometimes it works that way. The laser might be getting weak as well. Try cleaning it, if still not working then you have to replace it.

My xbox 360 wont read any disk, what do i do?

If you haven't already, try running a dvd cleaner through it a couple times. Usually clears it up for me.
Good luck. Please let me know how you made out, thanks.

My xbox always says open tray and close tray, it wont play my games, no red ring

The disc tray is messing up. The same thing is happening with my 360. Here are two different suggestions:

  • Put the disc in the 360, and then turn the console off. Turn it back on, and it might start playing the game for you. This has worked for me a few times.

  • Call Microsoft's Support line (I think it's 1-800-MY-XBOX in the US), and tell them about it. If your console is within warranty, they should repair it for you, free of charge.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

My xbox360 wont play any disk

I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.
