Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Disc drive won't read any discs

I cleaned(no warranty,1 year 2week old system),drive would load a disc every now and then,sometimes it took 20 tries.Once loaded the game disc or DVD would play fine.One day stopped loading at all.I called Microsoft and they refused to sell me a new drive (Ben Q model#VAD6038,MS part #X800474-006).Microsoft wanted me to send entire console 2000 miles (I live in Canada)to be repaired.Looked into shipping fees and coupled with repair costs it would be cheaper to buy new system.So,I found a new drive of same make and model on e-bay,installed yesterday.Now console will only play DVD's,games come up with message to put disc in xbox 360 machine.Called microsoft and felt as though they gave me the run-around.My question is,did I buy a DVD only drive(with the exact same data sticker,model #s,part #s on it)or is microsoft giving me run-around or am I missing something else (unsure what 'flashing' is)???

Dvd player won't play disc


The DVD read head may need to be cleaned. Sometimes perfectly OK drives also fail to read certain discs. If the problem is persistent, i.e. the notebook won't read any discs, then clean the head (with a head cleaner) and try again. If it starts working, fine.. If not, then you may have to replace the DVD drive. If the problem is only related to playing one particular DVD, then its the DVD that is faulty.
Hope this helps.

It won't load any discs, the system is in mint


Hi,

This is a typical indicator of a problem with the Bluray drive or more specifically the optical laser on the drive which is failing to read the disc. Sony charge $150 for this repair if the console is outside warranty.

You could try cleaning the lens on the laser as this can work sometimes but this requires you to open the console and most often the lens is faulty and needs to be changed. For more information on the lens and how to access it either to change it or clean it please see this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa

Reads game disc can not be read, sometimes even on newer games. It has been doing this on and off since we bought the system.


Did you buy it new? If so, you have a 1 year warranty with Nintendo. Give them a call.

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error MessageIf you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

  • Check our list of specific game issues to see if there is a known issue with that particular title.
  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

Xbox360 will not read some games sometimes or will start then go


The "Unplayable Disc" error has also been heavily reported. The error appears to be limited to the Hitachi-LG CD/DVD ROM drives that replaced the earlier Toshiba-Samsung drives. The error message is preceded by a loud series of grinding noises and the system returning to the dashboard. From that point forward, any disc that is put in the unit will result in the "Unplayable Disc" error (although if the user was to eject and close the disc tray in quick succession the disc may sometimes play). In the majority of cases, this error is caused by the adhesive that holds a small magnetic washer heating up and allowing the washer to affix itself to the metal top of the drive. After this occurs, the system can no longer spin the disk as necessary. Numerous fixes are available on the internet, but all involve opening the console box. Opening the console will result in the unit's warranty being voided. Microsoft will fix the error for a fee . Included in the repair fee is one additional year of warranty coverage.

if you dont give a damn about warranty

open it up and clean the drive and wipe everything down with a q-tip. and replace it back

thank you

My xbox 360 wont load any games.


It has happened to me twice and unfortunately the only way to solve it is sending the device to msoft. You can do this either through the phone or using the xbox.com site.

The second time it happened to me the machine was out the warranty, they offer me to pay 87 € to fix it and extended the warranty for an extra year after it.

At the end when I send it the second time they just sent me a refurbished one to avoid the problem to happen in the future.

No disc


Try using a cleaning disc, if that doesnt work take apart the unit and manually clean the lens. If that doesnt work your going to have to take the unit in for an estimate. If its more then two year old and you paid less then 150 bucks for it , it probably is not worth the estimate fee. good Luck
