SOURCE: Xbox 360 thinks it`s an Xbox and won`t register a 360 game

Hey,

Strange Issue, but I think its a possible solution to it. I would say the drive and/or laser needs to be changed.

SOURCE: My xbox 360 gets really hot during gameplay

I went to walmart and bought an external cooling fan for around $20. It is so worth it! otherwise, just take constant breaks every two hors and let the xbox cool down for about ten to twenty mins.

Datel game talk xbox 360 wireless headset shuts off.


I have the same exact problem , BUT I did a little trick and it worked somehow, the problem that I had is that : when you turned the headset off by pressing the power button. It won't really go off, you can still hear the sounds from your Xbox, even that the Xbox show you that its disconnected , there will be no logo for the headset when you press the Xbox button on the controller.
Here is what I did to really turn it off.
First you should adjust the "Master Volume " wheel to the end. I mean move it like you are decreasing the volume to the least. so there will be No SOUND. after that hold the power button, and it will really turn off this time , for real.
Hope it worked for you :)

My xbox fans spin really fast and the xbopx works fine but the ans go normal the go really fast and stop again please tell me how to fix it thats my only problem


the fans in the 360 respond to how hot the console is getting and thus how much cooling is required. Try standing your console up, it helps to disappate the heat much better.

Is your disc scratched?

Check to see if any accessories are causing the problem loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Turn your console off, and then remove all the accessories that are attached, including the Xbox Hard Drive. Turn the console on to see whether the problem still occurs.
  • If the problem does not occur when the Xbox Hard Drive is disconnected, try clearing the Xbox 360 Hard Drive cache. To clear the Xbox 360 Hard Drive cache, follow these steps:
    1. Re-attach the Xbox Hard Drive.
    2. Locate the System section of the Xbox 360 Dashboard.
    3. Select Memory, highlight Hard Drive, and then press Y to view the device options screen.
    4. On the Xbox 360 Controller, press the X button, press the X button again, press the left bumper, press the right bumper, press the X button, and then press the X button again.
    5. You will be prompted to confirm system maintenance. Select Yes by pressing A.

Screen won't show up but this is diffrent


This happened to mine and it had to be sent back to be repaired (3rd time) as the graphics card had failed; it started with the display colours looking strange, then the picture went totally. If you can hear everything working (beeping/whooshing" as you go through the "blades", it sounds like you have the same problem. below is how to reset to the default display sttings just in case anything has gone wrong on this.

To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps: (Copy and pasted from Microsoft support pages)
  1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  2. Turn the console off.
  3. Turn the console on.

    Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.

    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on.
  4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.

If this doesn't work then try phoning XBOX Support on 0800 587 1102.

Xbox 360 error 73


Sometimes the easiest way is the fastest way. The signal reset button (the little one to the left of the power button) is also the unofficial reset button for the Xbox 360. With the Xbox turn off, press this button and keep pressing it while you press the power button. Do not release the reset button until you see the system booting up normally. Of course, if there is a permanent or a more serious damage to the system, it won’t work or the error will be recurrent until it is solved. Resetting just clears the error from memory.

Xbox 360 wireless controller not connecting.


it sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.

- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)

That should reset it.
