Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro System Console
My xbox 360 was overheating so I used a heater to do the "towel trick" with it. it fixed the problem but now it has a little blinking green light and the disk drive won't open or close and on the dashboard it keeps saying "opening tray". I opened the system and everything is connected. do you think that there is a problem with my motherboard or do i need a new sata cable, if so where can i buy one small enough?
ps: the problem is not with the disk drive.
pps: thank you to everyone that answered
If you still have a warrenty sticker call up Microsoft and tell them that your Xbox 360 has overheated, and tell them your serial code. They will tell you if your warrenty is expired, if it's not they will ask you where you live then pick up your Xbox 360 and fix it for free. If your warrenty has expired try this. Power off the Xbox 360 and when it is off press the eject button, it might open they tray. Or try opening your Xbox 360 and remove the disk drives cables from the disk drive and the motherboard and put it back together, you should never try the towel trick really, although it works it can also give your Xbox 360 3 red lights then you have to buy X-clamps and theormo paste, just do the X-clamps and theormo paste when you get one red light. I have had two Xbox 360's, when I did the towel trick it burnt the GPU, the other one a little componante came loose, sorry for my spelling. Hope this helps =D
