Hey i just bought an xbox 360 elite of my friend today,, i plugged it in and it works on my tv but wont stop opening and closing the disc drive! help please!

Your disk drive must be reprogrammed or it has an item stuck behind the tray causing it to eject automatically. It kind of hard to pin point your issue, would recommend you to send it to your local repair shop.

Try unplugging all the cables. Let it rest for a couple of minutes. Then plug everything in and see what happens.
Common problems with the xbox is overheating, RROD, corrupted video, dotted lines accross the screen.

Try contacting the store where it was bought. See if they can replace it for you. Some places have 90 days warranty.

If that doesnt work then you need to contact microsoft and fill out a repair order. I myself had 3 RRODs and they were all fixed in less than 5 days, sending it in to Microsoft.

Their site is:

Follow the instructions and if needed give them a call.

Dont feel bad, more than half of all xboxes sold have had this issue come up. I myself had it happen 3 times with two different Xboxes. 1 original and 1 elite.

My xbox 360 elite has 1 red flashing light and the screen is all weird whats happening???

hat's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

so first disconnest all wires, wait a couple minutes and plug everything back in and turn it on. if its still red then its a HDD issue. take the HDD out and turn the 360 back on. if it works then you just need a new HDD,.

and if that doesnt work, then its just a system error and youll need a new one.

i dont reccomend opening the system yourself, as your warrenty will b voided. it looks like it is having a problem getting the 'power up' command to the power supply. your system will most likely have 2 be sent back to microsoft 2 either b fixed, or a new 1

N64 wont turn on... i miss it

Had the same problems.. the n64 just turned off after playing dr. mario for a few minutes... anyways, heres what worked for me

1. make sure your wall outlet works *sounds dumb, but better safe then sorry, plug in a light or something to make sure it works*

2. unplug EVERYTHING, controllers, vid cord, power etc

3. let everything be disconnected for about a minute or so, the AC adapter sometimes overheats and turns it self off which might be the problem.

4. ONLY plug in the AC adapter to the n64, make sure its firmly plugged in. turn it on.. it should light up now, if so, plug everything back in. enjoy :)
