It seems as if your disc reader has tapped out. I suggest that you call Microsoft and either A. send it in. or B. have them send you a new disc reader.

My 360 will say a game is a dvd and not play the game. It will play cds and movies fine but not games. i cleaned it with a lense cleaner to but still no luck. Why will it not play games?

To fix this, use one of these few tips:

*1.clean the disc drive
*2. replace the disc drive

3. Put in a game and tap with a moderate force on top of the drive
4. Clear system cache. To do this, go to system settings and click memory. Press "Y" and go to clear cache, or click: "X" "X" "LB" "RB" "X" "X" as a button sequence.
5. Clean the laser and the rails. If the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned DONT use regular rubbing alcohol. Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses. Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along sometimes need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone. This method clears read problems most of the time not resolved by these other techniques.

6. WARNING: Don't try this one if you don't want to take even the slight risk of damaging the console even further! Turn off the console with a cd in it. Then open the disc tray, and quickly take out the cd, slam the tray shut (Not too hard now), and turn off the XBOX 360.

My xbox will not play regular movies or games. it

If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Once the heat stops the games start.

My 360 turns on and everything seems to work but..

Bad DVD drive. If your not getting the RROD than it could be the laser but I can't say for sure. I have seen this caused by mechanical failure as well. I can however narrow it down to the DVD drive.

When i put in a game movie or cd and i close the **** tray the green light keeps blinking until it says the game is unreadable even if it is brand new but if i blow in the disc tray turn off the xbox then...

AVOID blowing into the disc tray or on your games. Moisture is BAD for any electronics and blowing on them will result in moisture. Chances are you have a dirty laser (buy a laser lens cleaner) or a buggy Xbox (all too common) If your Xbox is still under warranty I would suggest you make use of that warranty and please STOP blowing on stuff. Cheers!

It doesnt even read that i put in a game

How long have you owned your system? You may be able to contact xbox for a repair under the warranty. If your warranty is expired and you're feeling adventurous, you can try to take apart the system and clean the lens of the disk drive with a cotton swab(Q-tip) very carefully, do not use much pressure, it will scratch. If this doesn't work, I suggest contacting xbox and having them fix it for you, if you don't have a warranty anymore, you may have to pay for the repair.

I hope I was able to help you solve your problem and please rate! Thank you!
