Question about Microsoft Xbox Console

1 Answer

Slow loading and ticking sounds

When I put in a Xbox game the Xbox makes a ticking sound as it is loading the game. Sometimes it says that the disk is dirty and other times the game starts. However, when it does start, anytime it is loading anything it makes the ticking sound and loads extremely slow. Oftentimes it also locks up during a game (I'm guessing from the loading issue).

I moved my xbox360 while disk spinning in it,the current game doesn't work so good anymore,and now it makes tick-tick noises sometimes when game disks are playing.It reads all disks,theres no problem...


The users manual for the xbox 360 says to never move the console with a game inside. In doing so, you probably knocked the disc off the spindle causing it to grind against the laser and laser assembly. The ticking noise is probably from the motor that moves the laser back and forth across the disc. A spring may have come loose from the motor causing it to click as the screw occasionally slips from the guides. This should not cause a problem, however the plastic inside the motor may wear out causing the "open tray" error after some time in which case a repair will be necessary.

Hi there my xbox 360 will play dvds/cds but will not play games it just says play dvd when a game disc is inserted in the console can you please help me thanks mr shane arnell


Sounds like the Xbox 360's disk drive is starting to fail. Knocking on the top of the Xbox (when its on its side) while loading a game can sometimes get it to work, but its better to have your Xbox repaired or replace.

Assassin's Creed 2 won't load on Xbox 360


Sounds like your cd drive is not reading the discs properly. If that's not the problem, then you have a scratched disc on your hands.

Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your scratched/non-working game to them. They will give you good money for it.

When i try to load some games it will make a clicking sound right before trying to spin the disc and it wont load the games


does it do that when you try to use the disk drive for other cd's. if so your disk drive is going. clean the cd even small about of dirt on cd will prevent it from working. wipe cd with clean dry cloth, get off any finger prints.

My xbox 360 only plays copies some of the time


your laser is nearly dead and needs replacing, the ticking sound indicates that the laser is at the end of its lifespan OR possibly needs cleaning and the power adjusting.

DISK DRIVE PROBLEM


Sounds like it is not reading the disk, make sure it is clean. Can you hear it trying to spin?

I hope you didn't push too ******* the door, you can make it jump a tooth on the loading gear making it go out of time. Check here for more solutions http://fix-your-xbox-360.blogspot.com/
