When the console was knocked over, the cd drive was knocked off center. Meaning that now whenever you put a cd in and power on the console, the cd will be "grinded" and desrtoyed. The console will need to be sent in for repair to Microsoft or another repair company. And please do not insert any more cd's into the drive.

If the console stoped reading games after the fall it is likely that the laser got
knock out of aliment or jamed or even a scratched lens caused by the game making

and testing it . but the most likely got knock out of aliment. easy fix if that's the case.

if you have any questions feel free to ask.

My sons new wireless controller worked 4a few days, now the light in the middle just keeps going round and it wont work.

The controller may have lost the signal from the xbox 360. You can try turning the unit on and then the controller. There should be a small white button on the front of the controller, if you press that it will search for the signal from the xbox 360. Hopefully this helps.

My 360 wont play my games

Sounds like the laser is slightly off alignment. Happens if the console is bumped and it has some loose components in the disc drive. If it's in warranty, just fire it back to MS and they'll stick a new drive in it.

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.
