Xbox 360 Fans Accelerating

When I turn on my Xbox 360(without any disk in the Disk Drive), everything starts up normal but after few seconds I start to here the fans spinning faster then normal. It keeps accelerating and it kinda sounds like a jet starting up.

The Xbox 360 has a notoriously loud fan system. Usually you just have to turn up the volume on your tv a little, and once you're into the game you pretty much forget about the sound.

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

Open tray issue


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

I took apart my xbox 360 and when i turned it back on i saw that the disc wasnt turning fast enough and it just saids open tray


the disk is not being spun more than likely. thats why i always get open tray. wat u need to do is this
1) unplug it all and take it apart
2) get to the disk drive
3)unscrew the 4 screws on the SIDES onf the drive. not the 2 in the middle 4)take off the cover GENTLY
5)put the drive back intoplace without the top on it
6)plug it up and turn it on
7) observe the disk want to spin but it wont. there is not enough pressure to get it going, wat u need to do it give it a little "push-start" spin it while applying pressure. it may take a few trys to get the disk going fast. it will need to start going very fast.
8) when it does that, quickly place the top back onto the drive without screwing it back on.
it should contunie to spin. turn it off, unplug it, screw the top back onto the drive, then reassemble the 360. works for me EVERy time

Hey my xbox wont read my games but will still read my dvds and cds with out a prob also my xbox has started scratcging my games as well any one know what to do.


You have two unrelated issue's. First the lasers weak and unable
to increase to sufficient brightness to read duel layer disk ( GAMES)
The laser will need to be replaced. second ,if your getting ring type
scratches then the drive is doing what's called over focus . pushing
the lens assembly in to the disk as it's spinning.

Recommendation is to have the whole drive replaced and swap
out the P.C. board to the new drive.

if the disk is still spinning when the tray open causing scratches
then there is a communication error from the C.P.U. to the drive
this will require you to have the C.P.U. re-flowed to remedy
this problem.

If you need more info ask

Unreadible Disk as soon as I put the disk in.


do other games work? if not your magnet in your xbox console disk drive may be defective and i would suggest returning it to Microsoft to have them look at it. If other games do work your fallout 3 disk may be severely scratched or the magnetic strip on it may have gotten demagnetized or otherwise damaged and will most likely need to be replaced...sorry

Very noisey


It depends, is it noisy when you play a game from DVD or just when it is running ? From Xbox, you can expect that it is just as noisy as computer without a silent fan.

If it is noisy when playing a game, it is normal since it's loading everything from the disk and Microsoft made the disk to spin fast so you won't have to spend a lot of time waiting before the game loads.

Then, if it is only when you play a game - i recommed for you to install it to your hard-drive, that way the console won't have to use the disk to load everything.

Xbox 360 rproblems


The motor in the dvd drive isn't spinning properly and the disk doesn't end up spinning so the laser cannot read the disk making the console believe there isn't a disk in there. So what you can do is open the console and then the dvd drive (Voids Your Warranty) and clean the motor with rubbing alcohol and some qtips or send it to MS and have it fixed.

Their are four ribbon cables inside one for the laser, one to open, one to spin the disk and one for power sometimes one of these might come lose. Or maybe even the laser has gone out but try in that order cables first, once the disk drive is opened then check for the laser turning on without starring directly into it you should see a red light of course. A new laser goes from 15 to 40 bucks depending on the type of drive you have check ebay first.
