Xbox 360 Frozen

Well I was playing a game of NBA 2K8 then all of a sudden my game froze. So I restarted my console but the image stayed on the screen. So I took the game out and restarted it, but the image stayed. Then I loaded the same game but the image still stayed. What should I do?

Try removing your HD from the system then load the game.

If that works insert the HD and try again if the image still stays you may need to delete everything off your HD.

Well i bought a game called 2k8 basketball here in philippines, but i bought my xbox on australia, then i tryed my game and it said, ( The disc's region code is incorrect for this consol ) so how can i...

Sorry you can't fix it. Most games are Region specific meaning that they are playable only on Xbox 360 systems from the specific region that you have. If you bought your Xbox 360 in Australia then it is likely PAL system and can only play Pal games.

"Determine whether the game disc is from the same region as the region where you purchased the Xbox console. To determine the region, view the back of the game package. Look for one of the following codes:

* NTSC: North America and South America (United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil)
* NTSC-J: Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)
* PAL: Europe, South Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand"

If the game you have doesn't match with your Xbox 360 Region then you won't be able to play it. (but a few games are playable on multiple regions, check list below)

Check out this site prior to buying games to help identify which games that aren't PAL might be still playable on your system.:

Notice that NBA 2K8 US version is not compatible with PAL system. If you had bought the US version of NBA 2K9 then it would have worked.

Can't read disk

the drive has build in it and its falling off into the laser Assembly
open it and clean it , the heat sinks are probably clogged with dust too
which some times causes overheating problem .

Why wont my NBA 09 live game would not play in my xbox 360.

Is the xbox showing any error message at all? It is possible that the disk is damaged, or that it needs to be cleaned. Is this the only game that this problem occurs with? Please contact me at God bless.

Disc unreadable

theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.

Xbox 360 entire system freeze

Hi Mattrobi8886, It sounds like your console is heading for a 3 red light error, I know from experience that freezing is not good and probably means there is trouble on the way.

Adding extra cooling to the XBOX or doing an X-Clamp replacement fix works in these situations. Getting the console apart is pretty straight forward and is quite easy, I've done it plenty of times, visit the Tutorials sections here for instructions on taking the 360 apart. also have allot of X-Clamp tutorials. I hope this helps in some way, leave me a message on the forum if you need more pointers.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!

360 Freezes during gameplay

try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure
