I have taken this xbox apart once before but did not get very far. What type of tools are necessary to repair this type of Xbox 360? I would also like to update the CD/DVD drive on it. Any hints or ti


Most of this can be taken apart with a screwdriver . The case is a little tricky. You will notice from the side...where the case is split, there are tabs on the inside that you need to press. I poked a small screwdriver through the vent holes to press them and get the box apart.

for some reason your xbox is taking a long time to connect to the Square Enix servers. I can only suggest you make sure to have your cache cleared for a smooth load. You may have to redownload the game.

After xbox is turned on the screen is split in half?????


I had this problem with my dvd player. It turned out the solution was to replace the cables. Once I used a new set of cables the problem vanished. This may work for you as well as if the cables get kinked or frayed at all it will not give an optimal connection. Hope this helps you out.

Xbox 360 cannot read xbox 360 games


You need to clean the laser that acually reads the games. Therefore take the xbox apart and take the dvd drive out and take out the four screws. Take a Q tip and damp one end and lightly brush the laser eye and take the other end and dry it.Put everything back together and it should work. If it does not the you need to change the dvd drive.
