Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Freezing on 360, but different prblems on different games

Ok I got my 360 back from repair a few weeks ago and I'm getting some weird problems. Mainly my games (all of them) freeze when I try to play an offline mode. When I try to play online (if it even lets me) it takes me out of the game giving me strange errors (on CoD4 its something like "Error - Cannot read column 151-There are only 2 columns", on CoD WAW OFFLINE its stops loading and gives me what I think to be computer errors 'cannot read syntax-see console for more details' and other stuff). Is there a fix to this or do I send it back to Micro$oft again? BTW is anybody else getting these problems, iI can't seem to find anybody else having these problems?

    I forgot to mention that on most of the games the sound keeps turning off and on at random times.

Freezing while playing offline is usually GPU related. As far as the "see console for more details" ??? you got me. Sounds like a server based error.

Try researching it, that's what i did when it happened with CoD:4 (online) it may be overheating, you're obviously not having red lights, try unplugging it COMPLETELY and putting it near an open window

Xbox360 will play cds but no games, says onscreen


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.

Sometimes like you mention it will still play CD's though.

My 360 is freezing up a little.


I've heard that when you put discs in the 360 and have the machine perpendicular to the ground, scratches sometimes occur. From my own personal experience, physically moving the 360 while playing a disc can sometimes cause scratches. I'd call 1-800-4-MYXBOX and ask them about it. Try their tech support and hopefully any fixes fall within your warranty or are easier than that. I'm sure that they'd be glad to help. Good luck!

The xbox360 freezes


If it is only this game it is either scratched or you bought the game from a different region than your console.
