Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

THE CLOCK KEEPS GOING BACK TO 2005 ON MY NEW XBOX 360!

WHILE LOOKING FOR THE LAST SAVED POINT ON MY XBOX 360, WHICH I HAD SENT 4HRS DOING, I FOUND THAT IT JUST WAS NOT THERE TO BE FOUND,I WENT THROUGH ALL OF MY SAVED POINTS TO NO AVAIL, I FINALLY THOUGHT TO CHECK THE CLOCK SETTING ON THE CONSOLE TO DISCOVER THAT IT HAD RESET IT SELF BACK TO 2005, I HAD JUST BOUGHT THE CONSOLE IN NOVEMBER 2008. SO I WAS A BIT CONFUSED TO SAY THE LEAST. AFTER VENTING A BIT FOR AWHILE, AFTER I NOW HAD TO REPEAT MYSELF TO GET BACK TO MY RIGHT PLACEIN THE GAME I RESET THE CLOCK AND JUST SHRUGGED IT OFF, ONLY THE NEXT WEEK IT DID IT AGAIN ONLY THIS TIME I LOST NEARLY 5HRS OF GAME PLAY. I BOUGHT THIS CONSOLE AS NEW IS THIS JUST SOMETHING I SHOULD JUST PUT UP WITH OR IS THIS GOING TO BE THE START OF SOMETHING ALOT WORSE. WE HAVE A ELECTRIC KEY METER AND I THOUGHT THAT MAYBE THIS MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT, ONLY MY LAST XBOX CONSOLE DIDN'T LOSE OR REFUSE TO SAVE ANY PROGRESS THAT I HAD MADE. PLUS THAT SEEMS STUPID WHAT IF YOU UNPLUGGED YOUR CONSOLE EVERY NIGHT WOULD YOU HAVE RESET YOU CLOCK AND DATE EVERY MORNING TOO? ANY HELP WOULD BE GRATEFULY RECIEVED, RACHEL

I have never heard of this happening, even when the 360 is unplugged it should hold the date. This may mean the internal battery of the motherboard has died, if this is a new console take it back and use your warranty to have it replaced.

I have had my xbox since 2008 with no problems. I joined lovefilm last year again with no problem but the past few disks they've sent me i get the disk error (open tray) thing and although ive cleaned the...


A tough one. I also suffered from open tray errors often and have found that sometimes all you need is a good laser cleaner ( designed for laptops or pc's ).Hope this helps.

My XBox 360 freezes


Here are things to try.

1. Try another game and check if it only happens on this game ( MLB 2k9 )

2. Select memory -> Select Y button for device options then press the following sequence on your controller

X,X Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X

You will see a message that goes like this " This will perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage device, would you like to continue? Select Yes

3. Delete your save game. or try to start a new game..

Because this is an indication that the certain point that you are trying to load is already corrupted and its your saved game.

My xbox 360 want read a disk keeps saying open tray


I got some good and bad news.
Lets start with the bad one. If you don't have the warranty that will cost you $99. Before going there lets go through the basic troubleshoot solution.

Go on console settings and check your time, time zone and locale.
Try any games after.

Still not working. Delete all saved game in relation to the disk in the tray (i know that sucks but yeah it may be one of the problem.

Still not working remove your hard drive ( its the grey thing at the top of your xbox. Press and release button to remove it and try a disk)

Alright still not working......here is your last resort.

The GOOD NEWS is if you still have your warranty you call microsoft and they will service your xbox360 for free. For the inconvenience you will have 30 days free xbox live.

Good luck

Hi pcon21,

I suggest keeping the new Xbox 360 because the new one should have the HDMI port and the older Xbox 360 does not come with the HDMI port.

Sincerely,

Discs not reading , not cutting off


Your laser/drive have gone bad. I would suggest contacting your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. If not then you would have to buy the drive/laser and install yourself, that or send it in to the dreaded Microsoft.
