the dvd drive prolly needs to be replaced. ive had this issue plenty of time before and it sometimes turned out to be the cd its self. the console might not be able to read the cd becuase of some kind of damage, try a dif 360 game.

if that dont work open up the cd and look on the dvd drive there will me a model number of a dvd drive. go to ebay.com or google.com and find a place that sells brand new or used but working dvd drive and purchase it and add it to the console. this will fix the issue of any reading cd problems.

make sure you purchase the correct dvd drive model

Hello.

There is a little insider trick to disable it:
Go to Settings, Highlight Parental Control, When the screen pops up that says Enter Pass Code press: X, Y, Left Trigger, X. You'll be taken to the parental controls screen where you can disable the passcode previously entered.

I hope this helps :)

Kind Regards,

SOURCE: i have sound but no video on my xbox 360.

This i have seen before and it tells me the machines is displaying the signs of lead free solder failure (85%sure). you could strip the machine down and replacing the x-clamps at the same time do the heatgun fix if you dont have access to an IR oven.
To me it will just get worse and will definately need the x-clamps replacing AND the solder re-seating.


hope that helps in some way

My Xbox is locked can u help please?


In order to disable the parental lock on your Xbox console you need to follow the instructions on this Xbox support site.

How to reset forgotten pass code for parental controls on Xbox 360


Basically, in order to prevent smart kids from finding a default reset code and disabling the parental controls without their parent's knowing, each Xbox console has an unique reset code that is calculated from the console's serial number.
So if you are unable to remember your secret question to reset the console yourself, you will have to contact the official Xbox support here:

https://support.xbox.com/contact-us

When you are talking with a support agent, you need to confirm, that you are an adult, and then give them the console serial number.
They will then walk you through the process of unlocking your console.

Xbox 360 reset Code


Since that didn't work. Try to go and run "Initial Setup" again on the 360. That should solve the issue. If somehow it doesn't just give Microsoft a call at 1-800-4MY-XBOX and they CAN take care of that for you.
