Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Controllers Not Registering

About four weeks ago my 360 started freezing every once in a while after I turned it on, and eventually it became so frequent that it was hard to use it.
About a week ago, it stopped freezing, but now won't register any controllers!
I'm not completely sure how long we've had it, but it's been a year and a half or more and the warranty is definintly up.
Does anybody know how I can fix this?

When it freezes it usually from inadequate venation as far as the controller bit I am not sure what caused it but try and use a plug and play cable it will auto sync the controller. Give it a try and let me know

My 360 is freezing up a little.


I've heard that when you put discs in the 360 and have the machine perpendicular to the ground, scratches sometimes occur. From my own personal experience, physically moving the 360 while playing a disc can sometimes cause scratches. I'd call 1-800-4-MYXBOX and ask them about it. Try their tech support and hopefully any fixes fall within your warranty or are easier than that. I'm sure that they'd be glad to help. Good luck!

New game freezing about half way through


I don't think this is your xbox having a problem. This happened to me with Gears of War 2 once I just played over the game in the same spot over and over and it eventually stopped. This looks more severe for you though. It may just be a faulty game so best you can do is call the game manufacturer.

A few unreadable disc errors, some freezing, then no picture.


Rats. Sorry to hear that. If your Xbox360 is still under warranty then you can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and arrange to have it fixed.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now: http://llamma.com/xbox360/Xbox_360_DVD_Drive_Comparison.htm

Here's another user's story of how he solved a similar problem:

Game freezes after 5-10 mins play time


if when it freezes it has a kind of checkerboard pattern, then it is what happens before the three red lights of death, try the eraser trick posted by Carl26
