The possible and most likely culprit is that after a while the inside of your 360 collects alot of dust and that dust builds up inside and on your fan. So I suggest you goto any local Walmart, kMart, Computer Store and purchase a can of that compressed air and use that to blow the dust out. Do not use a regular compressor because condensation builds up inside the compressor and will blow alot of water into your system and if you blow water in your 360 and plug it in you are going to have bigger problems than a noisy fan. The best fix is to actually open the case and clean it out that way. But by doing this you Void your warranty with Microsoft. So that is on you.

Clean out the fan assy on the console. Or, your fan bearings might be going bad.

Well, honestly I do not know why it is so 'loud' but, it can be fixed by installing your game to your hardrive.

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

When load a disk xbox 360 makes a clicking noise and says open tray on the screen


Something is most likely wrong with your disc tray.

Try a new disc, and if the problem persists, I would call xbox support.

Xbox 360 is loud - sounds like a loud fan motor. How can I make it run quietly?


You can try installing the game you want to play on the Xbox 360 Hard Disk, which reduces the motor noise to an extent, however there is no permanent way to fix the loud fan motor noise while playing the game with the disk in the drive.

Make sure you keep your Xbox 360 unit well ventilated, ensure it does not gather dust near the small vents and openings on the unit.

Loud humming noise coming from 360


The loud humming noise is usually the DVD drive. It is very fast but is very loud. If you have the NXE dashboard you can download games to you Xbox 360 to run them from the hard drive (you will still need to put in the disk for copy protection issues). The Xbox should make less noise then. Try to mount the Xbox 360 on a hard surface which is in contact with a soft floor to reduce the noise travelling through your home.
If it is making a loud noise while there is no disk in the drive then take the console to a Microsoft dealer whenever you can to have them take a look at it.
