Ok so two Xboxes: 1 with RROD and one with Disc problem...

1) RROD :- There isn't much you can do to fix this one. Call Microsoft at 1-800-4-MYXBOX to see if the 3 year warranty is still available for you console (it's 3 years + 90 days of RROD and E74 Error Warranty).

If you;'re out of lucky and your warranty is void, you can open up the console and under the cpu and the graphics card put this thermal solution (this is thermal solution and it keeps the cpu and gpu (graphics processing unit) cool http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835202006&Tpk=ocz%20freeze

Watch this video on how to apply the thermal paste and how to open up the console. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsz0lNJ6JrQ&feature=related

Or if you need a temporary fix (works temporarily...) you can do the towel trick.

2) Disc Error :- I have the same error. You can do three things.

A) You have to keep turning it on and off. Here's how... Turn it on, then click open tray then close tray ( keep opening and closing tray about 10 times) then turn the console off. Then keep repeating process for about 15-20 minutes and eventually the game disc will show up. ( I have to do this every time)

B) Make sure that this is covered by Microsof't's RROD warranty. Then some how get teh red rings on this console and send it to Microsoft. (Note: I am not held responsible for your actions.)

C) This is a lens problem. So go out to a store and buy a DVD lens cleanser. It's a disc that cleans the lenses of the DVD or the XBOX.

This took me awhile to type so please be nice and take 10 secs of your life to rate this solution.

The ring of death is caused from overheating! there are many videos on youtube claiming to fix the problem simply by overheating the unit with towels over it for 20 minutes. Try at your own risk. watch the videos and see what you can do!

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

Make sure discs are not scratched. Try cleaning the discs using rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth.
