Re: wont link to x-box live,

Do you have your xbox upright? or flat? as I have came
accross this problem myself which is usually cured by laying the xbox flat. Don't know if it's gravity related or not. (This is the dvd drive by the way)

As for xbox live, are you signed up for xbox live gold or silver?

Silver doesn't let you play games online only gold does.

Hope this helps.

Open tray problem on a xbox 360

this problem used to occur alot on my x box 360. well first off you need to pray. secondly give it time and whatever you do, do not smash the tray button out of anger for this will only break it further. eventually it will open normally again. just give it about........... a week 2 tops. unless it wont open at all......ever then you will be fine.

your laser needs cleaning, if not you'll need a new cd drive but in that case you cant put the x box casing back on so your xbox would look messed got any more questions or more detailed info e-mail me

My xbox 360 disc tray wont open how do i fix that problem

Slap the top of the the box as you press eject. that will get it open.
then wipe a little rubbing alcohol on the black belt
just under the tray . And a little petroleum jell in the
tracks under the tray . Then open and close the tray to
work it in.

Game not working

Hello, I have an Xbox 360 and after several exchanges from the three death, to what i have heard and seen here lately is don't set the console in the upright position, vertical, it needs to lay horizontal, so the disk tray opens and a game will lay in it. If the warranty label hasn't been tampered with x-box has a five year warranty, so the unit can be replaced free of charge, Xbox payes for it to be shipped. Make sure you follow the instructions and remove everything, cause they send a core back to you, that's it! The only other assitance I can provide is that while the tray is in the open postition check the tray area with a flash light to see if something just happened to get in there, plastic will stick to a DVD and then you load that DVD and plastic in there. 1st step lay the xbox 360 on its horizontal side, check tray area for debris, if problem has no change call X-box 1-800-4myxbox. I hope this has helped and I looked forward to helping in the future, Thanks
