Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Put this in an xbox 360 console

Can we fix this problem ourselves? Whenever my son puts an xbox 360 game in, the screen reads"please put this in an xbox 360 console". And it is already in one. The system will play regular xbox games but it won't play the games made for it. Thanks!

    my xbox 360 will not let me play the original games,

    it says "please put this disc in an xbox 360 console". sometimes it just say's open tray & close tray, it wont read the disc at all, but it will play dvd's & original xbox games, What do I do?

    When I bought my xbox it did that with two games, but no other than those two. I thought it was a scratch on the disc but now, almost a year later, it shows this message with every game.
    After a while of shutting down/powering up the console the game works, but it takes a long time...
    I think there is something on the lens of the dvd drive, so I think I'll try something to clean it, maybe that'll help.

Sounds like your laser is dying.
You need to change the laser and you'll be playing again in no time. can fix that for you for a very small fee.

Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
