Sound doesn't work while playing a game or movie from Xbox 360. It used to work - then it just stopped while a movie was playing. now games and movies won't play sound. Cables are good, sound sytem is...


You can figure out real quick through isolution what the problem is and who to point the finger at. Go ahead and unplug your xbox 360 system and hook it up to another tv. It doesn't have to be hdmi, just a standard one can work fine so you can plug the yellow video, and two white/red audio cables in to test. If that works then you need to look at the ports on your tv or sound system as the source problem. Check the settings...it doesn't hurt to reset them and reconfigure. Also check the xbox system settings in the Dashboard and verify. That will get the ball rolling and get your solution asap. Good luck!!!

My xbox 360 says play dvd but i put in halo 3 which is a video game


Is your DVD-ROM the original one that was in it when it was purchased? If not, then there's your problem. If you replace it with another ROM from a different 360, or with an after-market 360 ROM, then it will only play movies and not the games. It requires you to hack your 360 to get the new ROM to work properly, and that's alot of stuff to do. I think that according to the rules of this website I'm not allowed to post info about how to hack & crack things. If your DVD-ROM is the original one, then maybe your need to update your firmware and even run a cleaning disc in your 360 to get it to work right. If that doesn't work, then you have the option of replacing your ROM yourself and finding the hacks to make it work right, or you can pay Microsoft about $100 to fix it for you.

My xbox will not play regular movies or games. it


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Once the heat stops the games start.

My 360 turns on and everything seems to work but..


Bad DVD drive. If your not getting the RROD than it could be the laser but I can't say for sure. I have seen this caused by mechanical failure as well. I can however narrow it down to the DVD drive.

Xbox 360 will play movies but not games


you cannot just replace the old dvd drive with a new one, you need to take the key from the old drive and then place it onto the new drive so it will work. all xbox 360 drives have a security key. If you still have your old drive then you may be ok and it may be that a technician can do the work for you. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

The xbox 360 screen is messing up and pixelating


After a lot of calls and finally a return to MS for RMA, MS checked and agreed to change the motherboard... it seems quite common issue (full HD seems to be a stretch for the console for games or for movies...). So the only way is to return it for repair....
