Question about Microsoft Xbox Console

1 Answer

Xbox controller port 1 & 2 will not work.

Had trouble with a couple of rented discs. They froze on me and at one point the dirty disc or damaged disc note came up. most of the time it just says to reconnect the controller to the console, which I do and makes no difference. 2 & 3 still work.

I can't play any games on mmy360


Are you referring to your xbox won't read game disc, or it won't load any downloaded game on your xbox and games on disc?

If it is your disc drive, this may be a major issue to the point where your disc drive no longer works, and you will have to take it in somewhere to get it replaced, or it could just be that your disc drive is dirty and you simple just need to clean the disc tray off.

If it isn't loading any games at all, you may just have a stalled xbox and need to turn it off and give it a minute or two. If that doesn't happen to be the case, your storage on the xbox could be full, causing your xbox to run slower and not cooperate. If it is full I would suggest in deleting memory of any useless apps or games, or invest in purchasing external hard drive or a larger memory Universal Serial Bus.

Now this is the final possible solution I could give you, if it is a disc problem. This is could be extremely difficult to do, but from personal experience 9/10 times it works.

Make sure to start with no disc in the drive and the Xbox is turned on. And you have a blunt object like your controller.
1. Turn the Xbox on its side laying down
2. Open the disc drive and put your disc in. Now close it.
3. Now while your xbox is trying to read the disc, just simply starting lightly-medium strength hit the top of your xbox in the general area of where the disc is until the xbox can read it or declares it can't.

This is won't necessarily work first try, but although it sounds stupid it does work for me.

When i put an Xbox 360 game in it tries to play it as a DVD movie. please help!!!


When you try to play a DVD movie or an Xbox 360 game disc on your Xbox 360 console, you may receive an error message. This article presents step-by-step guidance to help you determine whether your disc is playable.
SYMPTOMS When you try to play a disc, you may receive the following error message: Can’t read this DVD.
CAUSE The DVD or game disc may be dirty or damaged. Because the console cannot read the disc well, it may even mistake a game disc for a DVD and report this error. If this problem occurs with multiple discs, even clean and undamaged discs, there may be a problem with your Xbox 360 console.
Note If you receive a different error message, such as one of the following messages, the problem is a different problem:
Error message 1 Can't play DVD. Wrong region code. Error message 2 Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD. If you receive one of these error messages, see the corresponding Knowledge Base article: 907620 While attempting to play a standard DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can't play DVD. Wrong region code" 908645 While attempting to play a DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD"

THINGS TO TRY Here are some things that you can do to try to fix the problem or to determine what caused it.

Determine whether the disc is dirty or damaged Discs that are smudged, scratched, or otherwise damaged cannot be read by the Xbox 360 console. You will want to examine the disc to see whether it has smudges, scratches, or other damage. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Examine the disc for dirt or damage: a. Pick up the disc by its edges. Do not touch the top or bottom surface. b. Examine the shiny side of the disc to make sure that the disc is clean and has no damage.
NoteScratches that follow the curve of the disc are very damaging and prevent a disc from being read. If your disc has even one of these kinds of scratches, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 2. If the disc is dirty, clean the disc by hand: • Use a soft, clean, dry, chemical-free cloth to clean the disc. • Lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward. 3. After you clean the disc, try to load it in the Xbox 360 console. If the disc still will not load or you receive the same error message, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 4. If the disc is damaged, do one of the following: • Because DVD discs are not game discs and the disc was damaged because of misuse of some type, such as not storing the disc in its case, the only thing that you can do is buy a new one. • If you feel that the disc was damaged by the Xbox 360 console in some way, please contact Xbox Customer Support. To do this, please visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.xbox.com/support/contact

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,

Grand theft auto is not working it loads up but then says i have a dirty disc i think it's something to do wit the xbox 360 ?


is the game rented or is it store bought? Most rented games have problems like that because of people just messing around with the disc cause the dont own it but if its store bought then there is probably a big scratch under the disc lamination.

Xbox 360 disc damage


Thats what happened to my friends. Well people say to have the console in a specific position. But because the disk is damaged there and two possible reasons. 1. You have your consel is the wrong position 2. You must have moved it. or 3. Get a new one. Now if you have resolved the problem and it happens again, rent the same game/movie, look at the rent # on it, write it on the disk that is scratched, now put the disk you wrote on in the case and send it back with all the scatches on it. They can't do anything about it.
