Ive just flown from Australia to Uk and My Xbox is turning on but has no green light on the console nor is the controller connecting .. Need help please

The problem might be that you switched from a 60 cycle place to a 50 cycle place (I'm not sure if there's any difference in electric current between the UK and Australia).

Hi my son has bought a game from america and we are in the uk , it wont work , keeps saying not right region is there anything he can do so it plays on his xbox 360 thanks traci

Unfortunately there is not. Games, DVD's, ect, are all region coded and can only be played in the region they are specified. There are some devices that allow you to change the region code 1, maybe 2 times before being permanently locked on that region. Xbox is not one of these types of devices. Hopefully the game that he bought from America is available in the UK or coming soon.

On a side note, there is one expensive option to getting his game to play, but that would require you buying and having an xbox 360 shipped to you from the US. Then he could buy games from either UK, or America and use the appropriate region coded xbox!

Hi my daughter has tried to set up a 12 month gold subscription and once she has inputed the code and clicks redeem the page goes to a name and adress - but it's for the USA and requires states and zip...

Did you buy your console in the UK or have it shipped over from the US? Another thing to check is if the code itself is coded for the USA for some reason. Your best bet is to call Microsoft Tech Support and ask them about, they should be able to fix it up for you so that it will work right in the UK :)

The disc's region is incorrect. what is mean by this????


Region codes is a built-in feature of the DVD system designed to control where discs are viewed and distributed. All DVD hardware and software is coded using one of six numbers ( DVDs Regions 0 , 7 and 8 are special cases - see below ). The U.S. and Canada use Region 1. Region 2 discs are used in the U.K. , Europe and Japan . While Australia and the Caribbean use Region 4. These codes determine where the discs can be played.

Your console must match the discs region code.
This is not the case so you wont be able to play with this game.

Hope it helped.

My xbox has an error code o5 says it requires service can you help

error Code 5 on The Standard XBox.
states That The Hard-Drive is Unlocked.
and will usually frag ( red/green )
this can be resolved, by fitting a temporary mod-chip.
and locking the drive back. or purchasing a software disk to do this.
This has been caused, by powering off the console, while a save-game or similar, has been occuring. the xbox hard-drive only unlocks at initial boot up. and to save games.
I could fix this, unfortunately Fixya does not Allow experts To advertise Services. If you look around. you Might Find my e-mail Address ;-)
