Ok I had the same problem try this if this doesn't solve your problem call Microsoft.

First, Unplug everything including harddrive.

Next, Wait thirty seconds.

Then, Plug everything even harddrive.

Finally, Try it out see if it works. If it doesn't call Microsoft.

SOURCE: xbox 360 wont play the games but will play cds and dvds !!!!

Mocrosoft only entended the warranty on the "ring of death" issue which was hardware related to overheating.  They did not extend the warranty to any other issues.  DVD/CD emulators and the games emulators are handled by different software.  
You can try a factory reset of the console...

Before trying this, it's highly recommend that you remove all hard drive and memory cards. Once you've removed all hard drives and memory cards, navigate to the systems tab in the main menu and select the “Initial Setup” option. Once you select the option, it will ask you if want to run the initial setup that occurred when you first started your console. Say yes and it will do its thing. When it asks for a memory card/hard drive, just decline and it should be done. You should see the default dashboard screen as confirmation that it did, in fact, rerun initial setup.

Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks
This might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.

Press the following key combination

Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X

This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.

If none of this works contact Microsoft and see if the console is still under warranty.  If not they will repair it for usually 99.00

SOURCE: reset family setting password

Here's what you need to do:

Turn on your xbox, go to System Settings. From there go to Console Settings. A window should appear that asks you for your password. If you don't know your password, then make up something. It will tell you your password is incorrect, click Reset Password".

You'll need to type in: YrYa


If this fails, then you need to follow these steps to reset your factory settings.

Turn off your xbox. Take your hard drive out (the bulge on the side of your 360. It says HDD on it.) by pressing the gray button, and sliding the piece out. Turn on your xbox, go to System Settings - Console Settings - System Info.

Press these buttons IN ORDER:

LT RT X Y LB RB Y (using the left joystick) go right ONCE A

After all of this is completed, a window should appear asking you if you would like to reset your system settings, press yes!

After all of this is completed, you'll need to turn your xbox off, put the hard drive back in, and turn it back on.

I JUST had this problem, and this is what tech told me to do... and it worked.
Good luck! Down with passwords!

Dont worry. All this is, is your son must of tipped over his Xbox 360 console or he moved it, while it was on. In the Xbox 360 there is a default in which the thing that holds the cd and reads it is lose and falls onto the cd and scratches the disk, thats why it is a perfect circle. It happend to me the first day i got the Xbox 360. And also keep the Xbox laid down, it keeps it safer from tipping over and prevents it from scratching it again.
Go to the store you bought the game from and you should be able to get a new one. My store gave me ea skate back. Show them your receipt.
If they dont accept it, you have to call microsoft and send in that game and they send you a new one in the case.

Xbox consol damaged brand new game


If you move the console while the disk inside is running it will scratch the disk(it just happened to me) I used automotive cleaner wax and polished it from inside to out and then outside to in(not in circles) and it started working again, try it:)

Make sure all the tv picture and audio cables are plugged in fully, if not fully plugged in, the cables can not work at all. If that doesn't work, consider sending it to microsoft or get new cables.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
