Re: xbox 360 problems

The idea of claiming that the console has 3 red lights and getting it fixed for free are wrong, the techs at microsoft check out all faults, your problem is a burned out laser on the rom drive and microsoft will repair it for £65 with an extended warranty inclusive. This is good but your local computer repair shop will do it for half the price

The Console is not able To read The Disk.
First Try A DVD Movie ?

KEEP SAYING UNPLAYABLE DISC My xbox 360 keeps reading unplayable discs but if i sit there long enough and keep turning it on and off, it will work. But after doing it for half an hour it gets really...

Sounds like the laser is starting to go bad in your dvd drive if it has to read it a few times before it might see the discs.

The laser is inside of the dvd drive and it looks like this:

Depending on the manufacturer of the drive will depend on the laser you will need to get.

You could also take a can of air in the meantime and blow some into the drive to make sure that there is no dust or dirt on the laser as this could cause that message as well.

Put this in an xbox 360 console

Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
