Question about Microsoft Xbox Console

Xbox needs service...

I just bought a used xbox for my son for christmas. When we hooked it up and turned it on it said your xbox needs service please call customer care. I did that and they wanted to charge me $80 bucks to have it sent in and fixed is there anything I can try on my own?

Well it sounds like your hard drive is broken,
and you can't just replace that cause its locked,
the the motherboard.
the best thing to do would be,
just to buy a motherboard and hard drive combo on ebay,
i don't think it will cost over $35.00
you will need a torx t10 and t20 screw driver to do the install,
and make sure the motherboard you buy uses the same,
power strip the xbox you have now uses,
you will have to take the unit apart to see what typ of,
connector it has.
hope this helps :)

My sons games have been burnt by lazer ...


if the ring is on the outside edge of the Game disc, the console was moved during operation. the disc tips and hits the disc tray on the outside edge, you should see a scuff on the tray as well.

you can buy a disc cleaner that can remove the scuff from the disc, you will need the type that actually removes a layer from the disc or you can take it to a video store and have them clean or resurface the disc.

Xbox 360 scratched disk


Hi

If the xbox is under warranty ( Microsoft has extended coverage on those) , have Microsoft fix it.
If it's older , you'll need to find a service that fixes 360s
If the case seal is broken Microsoft wont cover any warranty issues

Having trouble conecting to xbox live xbox 360


Well I've been having problems as well especially with Call Of Duty 4. I'm 14 and I was told its simply the Christmas overload that everyone has gone out and bought the system,games, and xbox live. Give it a month or so and see how it works out. Also, if you have a router, try connected the ethernet cord (if u have one) to the modem directly......it may work but dont take my word for it. Also, be sure you have DSL or Comcast. Good Luck.
