I had some moisture around my xbox 360 and i got the red ring of death and i havnt had it for 6 months yet what do i do


Well that is a good thing that you have only had it for a few months. Make sure that it is 3 rings not just one or two. I would go to xbox.com/support and then they will probably have you send your broken xbox in and they will send you a new one in about 2 weeks.

I kicked my xbox 360 by accident when i was playing lp2 and i went to gamestop to get another one so i got a new disc but will my xbox scratch it and leave another ring around it again? plz help


The xbox will leave a ring as what happened. To prevent this from happening again move the xbox somewhere safer like on a table where it can not be moved or kicked. MAKE SURE TO LET IT VENTILATE!!!!!!!!!

It look like an scrath all around the disc because somebody turned the xbox over it made a funny sound what should i do to clean it someone suggested toothpase


I had this happen when I first got my 360 and did not know I could not change positions when running. The disc had a scratch ring around the edge and I could not repair it. I tried Disc Doctor, and various professional products to no avail.
One thing I can recommend for the future is buying your games at GameStop and asking for "Game Guard". Its $3 on a new game and is a no questions asked warranty replacement for one year. Scratch it, snap it, go outside and play Frisbee with it. Take all the pieces to the store and get a new one. But only one replacement within that Year.

Big rings on the disc


A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.


Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “ring of death marks”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any scratches or laser burn on discs. They can be fixed!!!

For further help on XBOX & XBOX 360 disc repairs, visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie Get Scratched Discs Repaired Back to "As Good As New Condition".

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on game disc repairs and related matters.

If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair.
You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.

Hope this Helps!!!

Hello.

Xbox DVD-Drive's often scratch circles into your discs and some even got malfunctioning lasers that will burn rings into games.
To prevent the circular scratched from happening avoid moving your console at any time while it is running however it often also occurs just in regular use especially for older consoles with Hitachi or Samsung drives.
As far as I know Microsoft replaces discs that were clearly damaged by a console free of charge, at least here in Europe they do.
Try calling Xbox Customer Support and ask for a replacement it is worth a try for sure even if they shouldnt replace it they will at least give you a 1-month subscription for Xbox LIVE in exchange.

I hope this helps and Good luck!

Kind regards,

If you can get the console replaced as well depends on the support person you are talking to but usually they charge you for that if you want to fix the drive yourself, open up a PC drive and take the foam pads outs and install them in the 360 drive this will prevent the discs from getting scratched they just didnt use these pads in the Xbox for some reason which led to these problems...

I hope this helps and Good luck!

Console moved while game was playing hence ring on disc and disc freezing any solution instead of throwing away


You have obviously damaged the disk. I think Gamestation or Game does a thing in store that can repair damaged disks but I think thats only scratched disks. It would be worth a try taking it in and trying to get it repaired.

Xbox360 putting ring around disc


This happens when the disc touches the laser lens when the console is moved while the game is in it playing. You can fix this by either buying a monster clean screen cleaner or just go to your local Gamestop or Gamecrazy and have them buff your disk. It happened to me a few times, i got it buffed and everything is brand new.

Disc error


If you look at the disc is there a ring around the middle of it now? Is the Xbox on its side standing up or laying down?
