Re: Microsoft xbox 360

Not a whole lot, some hard drives just make noise, if you console is on its side try standing it up or if you want to take the risk you can open the hd enclosure and unmount and re-mount the actual drive its possible that it vibrated loose at some point. another solution might be to set something on top of or against the attached enclosure to quiet the sound of the vibrations.

one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables. first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more. If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you. The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

Hard drive won't read downloads

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, your whole problem is the fact you cant get it connected to the internet, ou have to be able to connect so the 360 can update the patches for the games because when microsoft repairs the xbox they erase all the updates you had. I hope this helps but it sounds to me like you need to plug the ethernet cable in and try to recover your gammer tag and account. Please let me know if you need anything further.

Step1 Go through several different runs to make sure that your Xbox 360 is really broken. For example, if you’re getting an error message when you put in a disc, try a different one. The problem can sometimes be the game you’re playing and not the console. Step2 xbox360sn_thumb.jpg Look here for the Xbox 360 serial number. Gather your serial number. Before calling Microsoft, make sure that you write down the serial number of your console. This is found on the back of the system. Step3 Contact Microsoft. Although you can contact Microsoft through email, they will only take care of repairing an Xbox 360 over the phone. Call (800) 4MY-XBOX and describe the problem to the technician. Step4 Receive shipping box from Microsoft. After you talk to a Microsoft customer service representative, they will ship a box to you. This box is used when you send your system back to them for repair. They provide postage and tape for sealing the box so that you don’t have to pay for anything. Step5 Prepare Xbox 360 for shipment. With the shipment box, you’ll also get instructions for sending your system. The most important thing to do is remove any accessories. Be sure to keep hard drives, games, cords,controllers, and personalized faceplates. Step6 Ship Xbox 360. Once you have your console boxed up, you’ll need to bring it to UPS. Although Microsoft pays for the shipping of your defective Xbox 360, you still need to get it to the shipping company. Luckily, it’s relatively easy to find UPS stores in most cities. Step7 Watch the status of your shipment on the service website that Microsoft provides. Log on to to see how the repair process is going. You should typically receive your fixed Xbox 360 in a few weeks. The whole process should take about a month.

I think next time you should call Microsoft and know what you are trying to do.
