I have taken this xbox apart once before but did not get very far. What type of tools are necessary to repair this type of Xbox 360? I would also like to update the CD/DVD drive on it. Any hints or ti

Most of this can be taken apart with a screwdriver . The case is a little tricky. You will notice from the side...where the case is split, there are tabs on the inside that you need to press. I poked a small screwdriver through the vent holes to press them and get the box apart.

Rm-yd029 sony remote mute button not working

Hopefully this isn't too late for you. It will at least be available for others who face our problem.

Step 1: Remove the battery cover.

Step 2: Remove the screws that are under the battery cover.

Step 3: Remove the sliding panel at the bottom of the remote. Gentle pressure under the center of the door will lift it over the retaining tab. You might have to apply a little pressure on one side of the door to get it to release. Again... GENTLE.

Step 4: Work a very thin screw driver into the small gaps at the bottom of the remote in the area that was under that sliding door. I used a jewelers screwdriver. Gently work the blade around and back and forth until you hear a tab pop. Then get the other side's tab to pop. Use fingers and blade to get that end segment to pop open.

Step 5: Carefully work your way up both sides of the remote with the screwdriver releasing tab after tab. You can pop one on one side and then go after the matching one on the other side. Sometimes you can do two at a time on one side before doing the other side. Try not to apply pressure on the silver/gray side trim. It is decoration only. Get the blade in between the black top piece and the black bottom piece to pop them apart. Do this along the sides up to the top.

Step 6: The retaining tabs that are at the very top of the remote can be released with a gentle pulling apart and slight twisting of the top piece and bottom piece. Everything should be open and the layers should come apart easily.

Note: Be aware that the plastic frame parts on the big circular pad in the center of the remote face may fall out when you pull things apart. Not a big deal. Just make sure you reassemble it correctly. Be patient and look closely at it. It goes together pretty much one way and has sized tabs that help to get it right.

Step 7: Do whatever cleaning you need to do. For my situation, some liquid had gotten into the volume control area. I used a q-tip to clean it up.

Step 8: Before snapping it back together, fit all of the layers in the bottom piece then do a test of the buttons to make sure they work. (Replace the batteries if you removed them, of course.)

Step 9: Assuming all of the buttons worked and you are ready to reassemble, transfer all of the layers into the top piece (best done with the top piece upside down) and make sure they fit well. Make sure the two silver/gray trim pieces are firmly in place on the bottom layer. Hold the upside-down bottom piece above the upside-down top piece and snap the bottom piece into the top piece.

Step 10: Recheck that the buttons work. Re-open and try again, if necessary.

Step 11: Assuming all the buttons work, replace the sliding panel from step 3. Get its tracks aligned with the remote's tracks and it should be a simple pop in. Heavy force is not necessary.

Step 12: Replace the screws

Step 13: Replace the battery cover.

Hopefully this worked for you.

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...

It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

Xbox controller won't connect to xbox

If it's a wired controller, make sure the wire inside is not damaged (If it's cut or torn) you don't have to take it apart, also if the end of the usb is missing a piece of the metal conductor that could be another reason. If it's wireless make sure you hit the sensor button on the controller then the xbox, it should be a round button to the left of the disc tray (vertically standing). Or below it (horizontally sitting). It should work if not, check batteries. Hope this helped.
Good Luck. Message me if you have any more questions.

Do i fix the tray that wont open on my xbox 360

Either you have something sticky spilled on your unit, or you may have to replace the motor for the disc tray. Also take note if the tray is even attempting to open at all. If so, it might just need to be cleaned.

Head of philips norelco speed xl fell apart.

Same thing happened to my father's shaver. After working on it for about 30 mins, this is how I fixed it. You need to start with the top silver piece/cover. Turn it over so you see inside of it. Drop the 3 screens into the holes upside down (so they face out). You need to rotate the screens until they sit as low as possible. Now drop in the 3 blades, again sharp side down. There should be a triangular piece with 3 circles attached to it. One side is gray, and the other side has a black triangular piece. If you look closely each leg of the black piece has a tiny picture of a lock and an arrow. Rotate the black piece in the opposite direction of the arrow. Place the gray side down lining it up with the three blades. Now rotate the black piece, it will lock into position, and hold the blades in place! Finally, the silver head has a little hinge on one side. This hinge is flexiable. Bend it to a 90 degree angle, and slip it into the notch on the top part of the main body of the shaver. Close the head part, in my father's shaver I had to press a lever in the front to snap it into place.

Hope this helps!

360 disk tray

What I did was took apart my Xbox and put the disc tray back on the tracks, carefully lifting it over the circle thing in the middle. When I lay my Box down horizontally, it opens and closes fine.
