Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Unlucky! Have repaired many of these. There is a lot of nonsense on the web about wrapping a cold towel round it or taking the drive to pieces and wrapping the motor drive cogs with elastic bands. Its all a load of rubbish. If you're out of warranty and you fancy opening your xbox then go for it, the lense needs a clean with professional lens cleaner.
I bet when it first started you could tap it when it waas reading the disc and it would recognise it. This makes it worse and finally leaves you with a lens caked in cack.
So to summarise, open the Xbox (Subject to warranty of course, and if you want a guide to do this I can help you with that) and clean the lens with a soft clean lint free cloth and proper lens cleaning solution. If not then I would suggest an out of warranty repair centre, maybe a local games shop.
Just so you know its £55.00 from UK to Germany for the repair.
Hope this helps
