1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) If you did not open your box an break the microsoft seal. They fix for free. If not you can replace the x-clamp on the motherboard for the GPU. You see the xbox360s motherboard warps because it runs so hot and the cheap x-clamps used to hold down the heat sinks are not strong enough to keep the board straight. When the board warps it losens the solder around the GPU causing the 3ROD. Just google the xbox360 x-clamp mod to find out how to get it done. If you fix yourself it will cost you like $3.00 for parts at Lowes!

Hey ive been trying to play my xbox 360 but everytime it keeps saying open tray and close tray over and over again what can i do?

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.

Disk reading error


this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.

Xbox 360 issue.

Hello Snarker it sounds like you have a bad AV cable, try replacing it with a different one( It will costs $5-10). If there is still a problem try removing your HDD ( the hard drive which is removed from the top of your xbox 360). If neither of those seem to fix your screen's issue, you may have an internal device that has overheated or come loose, I would recommend try leaving your xbox on and see if red rings appear on your console Like this(they might be in a different idea I am just letting you know where to look) 9ca118f.jpg. If they do you can send your xbox back to Microsoft wait 2-4 weeks and get it back for free.

I hope that helped and if you need anymore assistance please let me know.

Xbox doesnt read disks

If you have a Hard Disk Drive or Memory attached to the console, turn the console off and remove the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) unit and any attached Memory Unit (MU), then switch on your console and try the disc again. If this seems to resolve the issue, turn off your console, attach the HDD and MU again, and then delete any saved games for the game that is causing problems.
Note If it is possible to do so, save the games to a separate MU.
To find out how to remove and connect the Hard Disk Drive from your console, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

Xbox not reading game

I don't know if this will help anyone, but I have tried a variety of things that occasionally have worked. Eject disk and pop it back in and then restart 360. Sometimes may require doing this a couple of times. If that doesn't work, try unplugging that thing in back with the orange light and replug it. Or simply, as it worked for my brother, just turn the 360 off and unplug the orange light thingy and don't play again until maybe a week or month, etc. He unplugged it for about 3 weeks and then it worked perfectly again. Sometimes the 360 just needs a little break. Even though this may be impossible for most to leave it alone for even a day, but its either you or your 360. make it live again!
