Hello.

In order to activate a new laser you will have to desolder the anti static point.
Just take a soldering iron and some desoldering braid and carefully remove all the solder from it after you have done that it will work, at the moment it isnt powered.

Kind regards,

There is an anti-static point that needs to be desoldered for the new laser to work. Check the link below and then select what drive laser you are trying to replace...

Game wont read says put disc in xbox 360 but i am using xbox 360 also it says its a dvd not game just wont let me play no more


If you have recently tried to mod your Xbox 360 then you did not get the drive key installed correctly. Otherwise the laser lens is either dirty/ starting to weaken. You can either replace the laser lens in the disc drive, try to clean it, try the POT tweak or replace the whole disc drive. Keep in mind if you replace the disc drive you will need to swap the PCBs or the drive keys. Hope this helps.

The laser could be dirty, or wearing out. Try to us a disc drive cleaner CD and see if that helps. If not, something in the drive (ie the laser) is going bad and will need a replacement. If you have warranty available contact Microsoft. If not, it's a rather simple process to change the drive and I'm sure someone local can get it done.

Xbox 360 wont read any of my games all of the sudden. stays in dash board. whats up


You may need to either clean the laser or replace the dvd rom loader, test this by using different types of discs, dvd , cd, etc. If some work and some dont, clean the laser with a cotten cue tip, otherwise you may need to replace the dvd rom. Please check the version of the dvd loader you have before putting in a new one. Good Luck.

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.

X-box 360 wont turn on


If the lights are red, this means that your 360 has had a hardware failure. This failure is also known as the "Red Ring of Death." If you have bought your XBOX 360 with in 3 years of posting this, your will still have free 3 years of warranty from Microsoft. Call them at 1-800-4my-xbox. (1-800-469-9269)

Hope this helps :)

Will not play 360 games


You have a bad laser. I have had the same problem with my XBOX 360. If your system is still under warranty you can send have Microsoft fix the problem for you. If not they will charge you $99.00 US dollars to fix it but will give you a new one year warranty. But if you are like me I went online and bought a new laser from ebay for about $15.00 and install it yourself. If you need more info let me know or you can go online and get all the info you need.
