SOURCE: 360 drive only reads dvds, not xbox 360 games, just says put in an xbox 360 console.

You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

How do you reflow the cpu and gpu chips, can i do that or have to take to a store?

Lol I will answer for you again. You need a hot air heat gun found on ebay pretty cheap. Ive been using that for awhile fixing ps3s xbox 360s and laptops. And youll need some thermal compound paste. One of those little packets will do youll see what I'm talking about when you look on ebay.

Replace dvd drive in xbox 360 and now only plays

First of all, the 360s could be differnt drive models ie: benQ or jasper....

Next things you should do is since you have voided your warrenty on the one 360 you should go fix the rrod which is a simple solution. You are going to need a heat gun and thermal paste.

My xbox turns itself off after around 10-15 mins

This is most likely a over heating issue of the cpu.If you are familiar with electronics you can try to open the case and remove the covers from the cpu and the other ic's.clean the old thermal paste from the cpu and the cover and apply a new layer of high quality thermal paste.This sometimes elevates the overheating problem.(CAUTION) only due this if your warranty is over because this will void any warranty.

Has 3 flashing red light's so put x clamp kit in it and did't work changed the DVD, AV Cable and checked the 203 W power supply. and did't fix so what do I check now? Thanks Charley

the xbox x clamp fix can be very touchy sometimes. have you used new thermal paste? try putting the fan over the top of the cpu chip after doing the x clamp fix again and letting it "bake" for about 10-15 mins the thermal paste hardens slightly and it should fix it let it cool completely before starting it up

I have 3 red lights with no noice from console

The towel trick should work if not you would need to replace the motherboard as the sensors have gone out in it, the sensors trigger the fans in this regard, I along with you have done this with 300 xbox 360 notice the microsoft next to my name. I am not looking for fame or glory but a solution for you if you tried the copper penny trick also then I would be looking at the motherboard as the issue.

Power supply to xbox 360

2 red lights on part 1 and 3 indicate the the console is overheating, the most common problem is the thermal paste.

You need thermal paste or it will overheat instantly, using cheap thermal paste or not using enough thermal paste will also cause problems. Use good quality paste and apply enough to make contact. You don't want to use too much, but if you use too little it won't make good contact with the heatsinks.

If you've done this before then it shouldn't take too long, but if you haven't then just take your time. You don't want to put too much on at first so do it bit by bit.

If you're still getting this error after correcting with thermal paste then the only suggestion would be to contact Microsoft but then they might not take the 360 after you have already void any warranty by opening up the console.

Xbox 360 randomely gets a black screen

Well here's the problem the towel trick. Ok the problem with the 360s for the most part is small cracks in the solder which causes a bunch of problem from rrod to this. The towel trick heats up the 360 enough to get the solder flowing again thus providing for a temporary fix. The problem is the solder goes places is shouldn't, thus towel trick ends up messing the 360 up more then it helps. My advice send it in, hopefully you still have the warrenty.

The 360 won't even turn on.

found a great repair guide that also has follow along videos. It was an easy fix, and my xbox has been working now for 3 months with this fix. I've also fixed several other XBox 360s using the same guide.

Now I'm using the guide to buy broken xbox 360s off of ebay and sell them back for big profits.

Xbox360 3 flashing red lights

Google up the red ring of death. Its a common over-heating problem on Xbox 360s. There are various solutions to this problem. The most recommended one is to take your console to Microsoft to get it checked. If you dont have an xbox 360 representative in your country as is my case, the second best solution is to buy a new 360 which comes more "prepared" for this issue. If you dont feel like spending 400 dolars on a newer model of the 360 then you should try some of the alternative temporary fixes. Most fixes have been reported as temporary, although if you are lucky maybe your Xbox 360 will last a long time fixed.

Basically solutions require to void your guarantee. Any fix which requires you to open your Xbox (the thermal-paste and the rubber fixes, etc (i will post link at end of comment)) will automatically void the guarantee. Theres a temporary solution which almost always works which is to wrap your xbox into towels without the hard drive and cables, only the power cable pluged in, and the console turned on. It will heat up and after 10 or 15 minutes unwrap it, let it cool down and you'll be playing in no time. Although this is definitely not recommended as you will be over-heating lots of components which are working well and could damage them. Well, hope this link works and saves you money.
