My xbox360 won't read games, can you help me how to fix it?

There are two things you can do, firstly you can dismantle your console,
!!! PLEASE NOTE THAT DOING SO WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY WITH MICROSOFT AND YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY TO GET IT FIXED!!!, once dismantled you can remove your dvd drive and then proceed to take it apart so you can clean the laser lens with a clean cue tip or cotton swab, use a magnifying glass to make sure any visable gunk is gone, then reassemble the dvd drive and plug it back into the xbox main board, fire it up and see if it reads, if so , voila!, it's fixed, if not,
Seeing as though it's already half dis-assembled, order a dvd drive from a xbox dvd drive supplier, say, eBay?, and stick it in and your done. I hope this helps.

Xbox 360 -rrod , code 0003

I have repaired several systems. I will try to explain it.
the reason for the red ring of death is loose solder points on your motherboard. there is only one way to fix this. WARNING: if you have warranty do not open it! Just send it to Microsoft. Else: Dismantle your xbox. you can find video's on youtube how to do that. take off the x clamps. and use other screws to place it back. overheat your xbox to resolder the broken points. and that will do the trick! I know this was a little bit fast. A very good site is:

Hope this was helpful! (and sorry for my bad english)

X box 360 keeps scratching my games horizontal ar vertical and game take ages to load

You can fix this but it involves dismantling the xbox and putting 4 blocks on the top of the inside of the drive, I would always recommender running your xbox horizontally and somewhere it won't get knocked on a solid surface with plenty of ventalation

My xbox is not recognizing any disks (games, DVD, music)

Sounds like the classic failing laser frequency problem. If you are any good at dismantling Xbox the DVD frequency potentiometer needs turning clockwise bout an eigth of a turn to increase the read frequency thus making discs readable once more.
Check out laser reading problems for Xbox on the net this is well documented

Xbox 360 wont play games

This is a common problem with Xboxes unfortunately, there are several steps to curing it. Firstly you should buy a DVD lens cleaner to see if this helps, otherwise any other fixes involve dismantling the xbox, which is doable but should be done carefully. See if the lens cleaner works first, then post back if you need further help.

Tray won't open and all games freeze

You Should sent it to microsoft or if your warranty had expired then u must dismantle your console. once dismantled there should be a small cog at the bottom of the disc drive if you turn that anti clockwise it should manually unjam ur drive

There are two things that could be wrong that involve dismantling your console. If you warranty has not expired send it to microsft at
if it has then you should firmly reconnect the sata cable, The black and white wire leading to back of your drive. You can manually open your disc drive to unjamm it. Once your console is open there is a small black cog at the front. if you turn that cog clockwise it should unjam it.
Hope this works

Ok so here is your problem, you are getting the 3 red lights due to a system/ hardware malfunction, possibly due to the spacers located next to the Xclamp on the inside of your board. If you dont want to open your console, try this.

1. Unplug your Audio/Video Cables from the xbox as well as you Hardrive.
2.Keep your Power cable in.
3.Wrap your broken 360 in 2 towels, so that it is completely covered and no air can escape.
4. Keep like that for 20 minutes.
5. The Xbox should be very hot at the end of the 20 minutes
6. Remove the towels and let cool for 15 minutes.
7. Plug everything back on and power up.

=) should work, but only temporary.
If you want a perma fix just message me.

Hope this helps,
Christian D.
