It sounds like it's your video cable, unplug your video cable from both your xbox and your tv, reconnect the two and try it again. please let us know what happens.
hope it works.

My xbox360 powers up with a green light from the middle and thats it , it don't work or connect to the controllars (not wirelessly or by the usb port) . and the four circling light don't work .please help


switch the xbox off and if you have any hard drive etc connected to the xbox or usb devices disconnect them , then switch it back on while holding the sync button, the one you press to pair the controllers with , hold that for 30 seconds and then release it, see if it will show up on the tv. If it still wont show anything on the screen , check all cables, borrow one that you know is working to try on it. if that doesnt work try another power supply. The best way to test it though is to take it to a friends and unplug there xbox and use their leads and power supply to see if yours boots up. Another check you can do is hold the sync button in and press the eject button , if an error is happening the ring of lights will change , you need to press eject 4 times, without letting go of the sync button, each time you press it the red lights will come on, code is as follows


Four lights =0
three lights = 3
two lights = 2
one light = 1

so if you get 433

then your secondary error code is 033

Okay i just got xbox live and hooked everything up. I turned it on and all it did was light up green in the middle (as usual) but it didn't show the 1st player sign. It made my controller like it wasn't...


are you using HDMI input? Make sure you have it on the correct input as it will not start until it sees the the input from your tv. don't switch inputs real quick, give it some time and it should boot(about 3-5 seconds). Mine did the same thing with HDMI only.

My x box wont read any discs


Greetings,

Please go through the Website link mentioned below.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816779

Note 1 If a saved game file is corrupted, it can produce a disc error message in that game, particularly when the game starts. You can resolve this issue by deleting all saved game files for the affected game from the Xbox hard disk. This method is effective approximately twenty-five percent of the time. If you experience this disc error message with more than two games, this procedure will likely not resolve the issue.

Note 2 Do not use laser lens cleaners, or similar products. Microsoft has not determined the effectiveness of these products or the affect they may have on the Xbox system. Microsoft cannot promote or recommend any type of laser lens cleaner for use with the Xbox system.
----------------------------------
1. Clean the disc and examine the disc for flaws or scratches
Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with your fingers.
2. Clean the disc with a soft, clean cloth, lightly wiping from the center outwards.
3. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc.
4. After you clean the disc, examine the disc for any scratches or defects. If you find any defects that are not caused by typical wear and tear, return the disc to the retailer if it still under warranty.
---------------------
Copy and delete any saved games from your hard disk
Note To copy saved games, you must have an Xbox Memory Unit (MU). You must copy saved games to a MU before you delete them.
1. Start your Xbox console with no disc in the disc tray. The Xbox Dashboard appears.
2. On the Main Menu screen, press the directional pad (D-pad) up or down to select Memory, and then press the A button.
3. On the Memory screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Xbox Hard Disk, and then press the A button.
4. On the Xbox Hard Disk screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the game title you want, and then press the D-pad left or right to select the saved game you want to copy.
5. On the Copy/Delete screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Copy, and then press the A button.
6. On the Copy To screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the memory unit you want to copy to, and then press the A button.
7.Press the B button to return to the games list on the Xbox Hard Disk screen.
8. On the Xbox Hard Disk screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the game title you just copied a saved game from, and then press the A button.
9. On the Copy/Delete screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Delete, and then press the A button. You receive the following message:

Are you sure you want to permanently delete this saved game?
10. Press the D-pad left or right to select Yes.
11. Repeat these steps for each saved game on the Xbox hard disk. If you have many saved games but you can remember when you started to receive the disc error message, you can just delete the saved game files that you created after that time.

Please let me know if you have any issues.

Xbox 360 Starts when DVD SATA cable is unplugged...


Have you re-connected the sata cable the correct way round,if you put it upside down you will have problems, connect it the other way around and see if it works.
It sounds like your console was suffering from screen freeze, if it would not respond to your controller commands, the best thing to do to cure this is to replace the heatsink paste on top of the gpu(under the small heatsink) then repace the clamp by screwing the heatsink to the board, this is basically the same cure for rrod, so there are plenty of guides around.
Please vote if this helps.

My xbox 360 and wireless controller will sync but then it wont show that they are connected and even though i turned on my console by using the button on the console it just shows the green light turn on...


To connect the controller to your Xbox 360 console, follow these steps:
  1. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.
  2. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console2_bing.gif is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console2_bing.gif.
  3. On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.
  4. On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.
  5. After the Ring2_bing.gif of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.

Not english


Note If the current language setting of the Dashboard is in a language other than English, the following steps will still work but you may not be able to read the menu options. If this is the case, you must follow the directional pad instructions exactly to make sure that you select the correct option.
  1. Start your Xbox console with no disc in the disc tray. The Xbox Dashboard appears.
  2. On the Main Menu screen, press the directional pad (D-pad) down two times to select Settings, and then press the A button.
  3. On the Settings screen, press the D-pad down one time to select Language, and then press the A button.
  4. On the Language screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the language you want, and then press the A button.
  5. Press the B button to return to the Main Menu screen.
