Sounds like the dvd drive is faulty, might be a 78fk which has the magnet fall out/misplace which can cause this type of noise but mostly it can be a defective motor or laser. i would recommend replacing the dvd drive with another. if you do get a new drive, try to get the same model as you have allready and you can simply just swap the logic boards.
also im betting that its either a 78fk or samsung drive.

we can replace this for you at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

I need microsoft points


Hello thosmasclabro.

There are a few ways you can purchase Microsoft points easily. If you have a paypal, or credit card associated with your account, you can simpily purchase anything from the marketplace with it. If you do not, you can add one by using your personal info on your credit card.

If you do not have a credit card, you can simpily stop into a local store and purchase Microsoft Point Codes for you to redeem for low price. Once you purchase the Microsoft Point codes at a store, there are instructions on the back of the prepaid card on how to redeem the points.

If you have any further questions are concerns, feel free to contact me at any time.

Hey i got an x-box 360 super elite (250gb) this chritmas, and my parents really had a hard time giving it to me, today i played it like for 3 hours and turned it off, because i thought it needed a rest...


You should try re-doing all of the connections. Both power and video and see if that works, you should also test the HDMI port of your TV with another HDMI device to make sure it's not a TV issue.

I just got a refurbished xbox 360 elite and when i turn the wireless controller on it doesn't connect. It just keeps blinking. How do i get it to connect?


To begin, turn on your xbox 360. On the top of the wireless controller, to the right of the LB button there is a small white button. Hold this, and the lights near the xbox button will spin in a circle. On the front of your xbox 360, there is a button to right of the memory card slot. Press this button and the lights on the front of the xbox will spin. After a few seconds, the controller should synch with the xbox. If this does not work, make sure that the lights are spinning in circles at the same time.

Please let me know if you need any more help

Xbox 360 is turning on for less than a second


Got kind of bad news , It is the power supply ,but it's the power supply
in side the box itself. It's more than likely a shorted regulator specifically
one of the 12 volt liner reg chips , I had to swap a few out to resolve
this a few times.

My Xbox 360 Gets 3 Red Lights Of Death and Then Works Fine


You can fix the 3 lights of death by replacing the x-clamps and the crappy thermal paste. Here is a kit to fix it and it comes with the guide too.

Fan does not turn on


That fan input could be malfunctioned. Look around to fix busted Xbox motherboards and replace the fan input/output. Also, see if your fans are hitting something.


For your fans to immediately stop, tells me it is the input/output

Xbox 360 elite freezing


I'm having the same issue with my elite... almost looks as if it glitches ( vid card possibly ) sometimes it will make it to loading screen of any game others it wont even make it past the xbox logo.. If I'm lucky I can get to the dash board, but most of the time it just freezes.

I'm so glad I spent the money on an elite cause my premium I sent back to MS 3x still red rings.

Any suggestions...? All lights turn green like normal no red ring o death yet .... yet, and I'm so close to tossing this thing off the deck and calling it a day.

Thanks for any help you can give
