Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Wont play xbox games
This is a pretty easy one to fix if you aren't too scared to open the 360 up, otherwise you will have to send to Microsoft.
The problem is that the laser is either dying out, is dirty, or is not getting enough power.
so try to fix it using these steps...
- first open the 360 and pull out the dvd drive and open it up too.
- clean everything out good with compressed air, and q-tips dipped in alcohol.
- now you need to adjust the power going to the laser. Sometimes you may have to try multiple settings before getting it just right. Just keep adjusting the resistance lower and lower until it works.
- if you tried multiple settings and still get the errors, then either get a replacement drive, or a new laser for it. Click Here for how to properly install the new laser.
hope this helps ; )

If you mean original Xbox games, some are not supported, although most are, if you mean 360 games, clean the disk. Not sure.
