Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My xbox says "unplayable disc". The games played fine a week ago. They are not foreign or burned games. How do I fix this problem?
Sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. basicly your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink isnt doing its job. there could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.
this can cause the system to freeze or see things ont he screen. it needs to be repaired before more issues happen.

This might be something simple like cleaning the laser lense you can by a disk to do this or you can wipe it with a soft cloth but make sure not to scratch it does it play some games or wont it play any if it dont play no games then when it is switched off gently push the laser back to the start position on the middle and then try loading a game if this dont work then you will need to buy a new laser

Tips for a great answer:
Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is; if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.
Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is normally required to fix laser burn scratches or damage to XBOX discs.
For further help on XBOX disc repairs or to get XBOX discs repaired back to "As Good As New Condition", visit:
Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.
If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair. You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.
Hope this Helps!!
