    Hi, I have this problem as well. The sounds works but the video out does not. I think it began with the colors starting to become uneven, but now there is no video at all.

Double check you a/v cables white yellow for regular tv and red blue green for hdtv. also check the tv/hdtv switch on the xbox end of the cable.Try swapping cables with a friend that has a working system and see it works.

    OK if you tried the swap "good" cable and checked the connections. Look and see if the box has bent pin in where the cable plugs into.If it all looks good then it is internal.

Yeah my cod black ops game has had 2 layers wiped off the disc to get rid of the scratches to see if it works better, but it hasnt helped one bit, whenever it does read my disc it always say clean disc and...

Unfortunately when you remove so many layers from the disk, it becomes unreadable. This is what it sounds like to me. I would contact Gamestop as I hear that they might have a way to help you in this situation.

Good luck to you!

My xbox keeps saying disc unreadable when i am half way in race i can get on the menu fine but as soon as i start a race it says unreadable disc what shall i do

Sounds like a bad spot on the disc. Or, it could be the drive itself.
On the original xbox I had problems with the optical reader doing this same thing.
Is it only the one game doing it? Try another game on your box, and try your disc on a different box if you can.

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.

Disc unreadable

Know what? I've had your same problem... Bought BF:BC, and it'll tell me that it's an un-readable disk, or says "Play DVD"... 
I've also already returned the game once, for another copy and there's no positive changes.
The rest on my games work, just not BF:BC.

A few unreadable disc errors, some freezing, then no picture.

Rats. Sorry to hear that. If your Xbox360 is still under warranty then you can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and arrange to have it fixed.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now:
