Cds will not play after Red Ring of Death

In lieu of the Street Fighter 4 release, my brother hasnt turned off my xbox since the day after the game release. While i was trying to play another game, the xbox cut off and flashed the ring of death. After resetting it, it came back on to only play certain games and movies. But eventually that turned to, no games, music cds or movies. It comes on, I can use it, but it wont read cds. Is my eye out? Or is it overheating. Sucks anyway it goes.

If theirs two lights means its overheating and you need to cool it down if its 4 its many things and if the disc drive doesn't read anything and by the sound of it its been played a lot its probably the disc drive could have gotten shot so first of does the disc driver even spin the disc if so then is the laser that probably went to hell and then you'll probably have to replace the disc drive if you do make sure its the same brand as your current one for example if its a hitachi then make sure you replace it with a hitachi disc drive.

I have an xbox360 and it freezes after 10 seconds of being swiched on it hasnt got the ring of death please help


First, try taking out your hard drive and see if it will play a game then. If that doesn't work, then its likely to red light soon. If you eventually get three red lights, the x-clamp fix usually works.

Image freezes in the middle of play , It does not relate to any one game and the time between freeze ups seems eratic. If you turn the power off then back on the game will start again but it will stop...


This usually means your GPU is on the fritz. You are most likely days away from the Red Ring of Death. Once you get the Red Ring of Death, you should send it to Microsoft or Find an online repair service.

Four red rings means there is a malfunction with your AV cables, usually it happens when they're not plugged in all the way. So it should have nothing to do with it. Unfortunately your CD/DVD drive may be starting to go. If it doesn't read disc then try ejecting and loading again. if that doesn't work you will probably need your Drive replaced. Feel free to contact me if it comes to this.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!
