hi, how well does your daughter look after her games? if her disk's have scratches on them the xbox will have trouble reading it and will often do this. another cause is that the xbox is old the laser will be worn out and will take ages to load a game.
the 2 solutions are: 1. check the disk, if it is highly scratched go get it cleaned, most gaming stores will do it for a small fee 2. take apart the xbox (only if out of warranty and step-by-step instructions can be found on youtube) and clean it gently with a duster
Sometimes the heads need to be cleaned and the disk as well! Try using dishwashing soap and warm water on the disk and dry it very well with a cotton cloth or eye class cleaner. Purchase a cleaner from your local electronics store the the XBOX. Hope this helps.
HI, the optics assembly has failed. the actual optical lens assembly will need to be replace in this case. you can try to clean the lens with a cleaning disk.. this may wake the laser. if the cleaning doesn't produce results, replacing the optical lens assembly will be the next move.
If your xbox won't play any games it probably isn't a disk problem. More likely a hardware problem. Its very unlikely all of your disk are equally dirty or unreadable. You can also check a movie dvd since the xbox 360 will also play standard movie dvd disks.
If none of them work ....its not the disk its the xbox.
As far as cleaning them goes there are several "cleaners" available, that basically just wipe the disk surface, you can do the same thing with a lint soft cloth.
If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an
office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust
out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be
cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous
this is the laser unit that is faulty, it either needs replacing or you could try cleaning it with a cotton earbud to see if that helps. if its still doing the same after cleaning you could also try adjusting the laser power, sometimes after its been played for years the laser loses power and you will have faults such as this. adjusting the 'pots' on the laser itself to around 282 will help greatly.
if you need a guide just email me or let me know via my website at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk and i will be more than glad to help you.
I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.
Hi, Have you tried using a lens cleaner? If you don't have a lens cleaning disk, take a cotton bud and, VERY GENTLY, brush the lens free of dust or lint. Be careful though not to press down on it, as this might render the lens, and hence your xbox, inoperable. I would advise buying a lens cleaning disk for such cleaning though.
