There are many ways to remove the scratches also the cover up the scratches.In order to remove them i have heard that toothpaste does the trick.Apply the toothpaste on the scratches then leave to dry in warm water for 30-40 minutes.
Or you can borrow another copy of the game from a friend and install it on your hard drive then when you put your original game in the scratches become useless.
Check back side of disk or any scratches or dirt, wipe of game with soft damp cloth. Please know if there are too many scratches or if the scratches are too deep, then replacement is be required. If there are no scratches or dirt, try other Xbox 360 games to for sure verify that it is the game that is the problem and not the Xbox 360. If the game is at fault and the Xbox 360 can play other games, and there are no scratches or dirt, then it’s a faulty disk, and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps!
The RED RING of DEATH isn't truly fixable without a reflow machine or at least an infrared oven. I've repaired dozens and spent dozens of hours examining and researching them. The solders in the processors are getting microcracks in them and coming loose. When you do the xclamp fix, all you are doing is putting a little preesure on these damaged solders. It will get the machine working again but it isn't fixed. As a matter of fact the solders continue getting worse as you keep using the console. The next time it fails it's in worse condition than the first time. Find a reputable electronics repair tech and tell him to "reflow" your motherboard. Hopefully scratching it didn't destroy it. Might be OK if you didn't cut any circuits. There isn't a "fix it yourself" on the internet that is anything but a temporary band-aid. And while you're playing on the "band aid" your console is slipping closer and closer to 100% dead.
1. you move, shake or touch xbox while running or disk is iin.
2. The disk reader is to close to the disk.
Solution: Open up xbox,. find disk reader, take picture. Show to people at game-stop, they'll tell u what to do.
3. Xbox is broken or faulty
Solution: Get your money back and buy a new one or don't and keep buying games when the old 1 gets scratched
Depending on where it is scratched makes the difference. But if its small scratches I think you should be fine. However any scratch on any of these platform like things can do any amount of damage.
Replacement motherboard? You could look into microsoft to see if they sell them. However even if you do obtain one you would need to find the right code to unlock it, same parts for yours. Which will get tricky. You could try here if you think you can do it by yourself: www.xbox-scene.com
Other solution: just buy a new system, they are fairly cheap.
Usually if a motherboard has been scored or damaged.
( tracks or resistors/capacitors dislodged et,c )
The board is in the Bin. ( scrap ) unless the damage can be repaired. The RROD Or red-ring of death. Is usually due to the x-clamps fitted to the console initially, by the manufacturer.
Replacing the x-clamps, with a kit ( bolts/washers thermal Compound ) And 4 x heatpads recommended. Can cure the RROD. And in my own experience the 1 red light And E74 error.
Bottom line, if the boards scratched. it,s in the Bin.
the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.
To determine if the scratches will have messed up you motherboard you have have to determine where the scratches are and what is scratched up. Now if you just scratched up the green motherboard (no circuits [lines cut open] and no chips [blocks]) you should be fine. But the only way to truly tell is if it will turn on when you plug everything back in. Now the processor board is small and efficient but there is still room on there for someone to scratch and still allow forgiveness.
I look forward to your post to see if it still fires up.
