Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

System won't read games and makes buzzing noise

My Xbox 360 system appears to read DVD's fine but whenever I try to play a game it makes a weird buzzing noise then brings me to the dashboard and says "Unreadable disc." I've tried this whith at least 12 games (some include: Halo 3, Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, and Oblivion). The games are all in near perfect condition with no scratches or smears. It just started to do this a few days ago and was working fine last week. I sent my system into Microsoft a few months ago because of the "three red lights" problem and they have done nothing to help me with this problem.

    This is also happening to me, I tried all my games such as Overlord, Battle Field: Bad Company, Saints row 2, and Left 4 dead. Hopefully Xbox originals work (Half-Life 2) I'm not upset though, because I've had this console since it first came out.

My xbox 360 makes this really loud buzzing sound or humming sound when I play certain games some games are fine they dont make a loud buzzing sound.


Its probably because you have the game in the wrong way. That happened to mine and i realized it was in backwards. So check that out and reply back. Also don't move your Xbox 360 with a game or DVD in it, it will get the game/ DVD scratched up.

Xbox WONT read call of duty 4


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
