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...

What happens when my xbox 360 arcade wont play any 360 games? My xbox 360 arcade will not play any of my 360 games. The disc are brand new. I bought the xbox 360 arcade used.


Find someone in your local area that can adjust the laser power level on the DVD drive. This is a temporary solution. A better solution is to buy a new drive off of ebay that is the same one that you have and change the PCB boards so you have the same PCB board in the new case with everything else. To see what drive you have, take the face plate off of the console. Look at the front of the DVD drive and there is a small hole on the lower right hand side of the drive. Look at the two wires inside the hole. Red and Black are a Samsung drive, White are a Lite-on drive, yellow are a Benq and a black plug is a hitichi.

This is very easy and only requires minimal soldering.

Wont read games only reads dvds


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

Ok i turn on the xbox 360 and put a disc in and all it does is say reading and then says open tray after wont read the disc once it even went to were i thought it was gonna work it binked to the sart of...


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.
