My guess is that your sons 360 is used and was refurbished. The same thing happened to mine but my solution is to return it if you have the reciept.

When i insert a disk it does not spin to read it and i hear 3 knocking sounds


The motor for your xbox has been damaged, so it is unable to spin the disk to read it, the knocking sound is the motor trying to work but failing. You will have to speak with a technician to get it fixed and/or replaced.

My playstation powers up normally. It runs normally but will not read any games. When I insert the disk I hear no noise like the disk isn't even spinning. Is this the laser or something else?


the playstation 3 tends to have quieter disc spins have you tried taking all the cords out of the back and putting them back in (sometimes it seems even with power cord out will draw some power from TV so ALL cords) and check using multiple games

Disk tray is not spinning


The way to fix this is to open the disk tray and blow inside for about thirty seconds getting the dust out of the way of the laser also blow across the disc tray and the surface of the disk. Then keep closing and opening the tray and it will start to read hopefully. if this does not work go out and buy a disc cleaner. it looks like a disc with sponges on it and when you insert it into the console it cleans the inside for you.

Psp original fat kind wont read disks


you can find a used fat modle on crages list for around 40 bucks, and used fat ones at a place like game stops 70-90. one option i would try is a little rubbing alcohol on one side of a Qtip, wipe the lazer eye very gently with the wet side then dry it with the other end of the Qtip, let sit for about 10 mins and giver a go. (DO THIS AT OWN RISK) =D if your very gentle you wount mess it up, the eye is glass and some times it just gets dusty. hope it helps

Wii disk won't spin


Hi, this will have to be repaired by Nintendo unfortunately. there is a relay switch that initiates the spinning of the disc when it is inserted all the way. this switch also has a sensor telling it to initiate the play/run option. all of this is automated and if either one of these important devices are malfunctioning, it will cause the Action's you are witnessing.
