If there is no physical damage to the outside of the console, take it back to where you purchased it for an exchange, it sounds like you may have knocked the laser out of place or even damaged the board.

    go here for some guidance on repairing it yourself, however, I would strongly advice not opening it yourself as this will void your guarantee. You can always tell the shop that you bought it and it does not read disks, and leave the rest up to thier imagination.

    probably not, you will need to have proof of purchase and it will have to under one year old. I would carry on searching for one that works, if they are telling you that it was dropped and are selling it cheap there is probably a stack of work to do on it and it will not be worth your while, if it could be taken back to the shop I am sure they would have done so thierself and not put it on ebay.

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

Brand new game, Xbox continually gives me read errors.


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.

My xbox 360 fell and now it won't read a certain game.


obviously when it "fell" its broken something inside, if its still under its 1st year in warrenty, i would send it to microsoft and say that it just stopped working, but it could be a many thing causing the problem, if you dont wanna wait for microsoft, find a local man in your area who specialises in fixing xbox's.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error


Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

Unreadable disk at start up


Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Unreadable Disc . Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.
