New Xbox 360 problems?

Have there been any problems/issues with the newer 360s? I bought mine towards the end of November 2007. I have heard many "horror stories" about the older ones. Im just wondering if they fixed them or what the problems are

Do not turn your console over while it is on, fo sho! It will scratch whatever cd is running. If you do scratch a cd, polish it from center to outside with cleaner wax.

a new way to clear the Xbox 360 hard drive cache. Previously, you needed to reset your Xbox 360, and hold down the A button as a game was booting up. This new code allows you to clear the entire hard drive cache:

Go to the system blade and then select memory. thumb_hd.jpg
Press Y on the HD symbol and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a messsage will appear saying: Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?

Xbox 360


Some of the Xbox 360s have been known to have issues with their DVD-ROM Drives, On Older Xbox 360s The actual Drive has been known to cause slight scratching and scuffing to your Games and Movies.

If your Xbox 360 is having problems reading games, their is potentially a problem with the DVD Drives Laser, i had this issue last year with mine, Out of the blue the DVD Drive stopped working and wouldnt read Certain discs. The i would suggest Calling Up the Xbox Customer support Center for your Country (numbers Available on www.xbox.com/support) and explain your problem to the person on the end of the line.

The only solution is usually to return your Xbox to microsoft Free of charge, which will be either repaired/replaced and sent back to you.

Also, once the solution is solved, it is important to NOT leave Games/DVD's In the Xbox's drive when not in use, Especially when moving the Xbox around as this can knock the laser and cause a fault ! their is only ever a DVD in my xbox drive when it is in use, i take mine out all the time to help prevent these sorts of problems.

Hope This helps !?

I was wondering what is the best way to stand the xbox up?


If you dont want the issue of scratching lay it flat on its side. That way it cant tip over while on and ruin a game or dvd. The bugs so far have been worked out of the system, there is no real way to tell untill we start getting some feedback on the use of the 3rd gen systems.

Xbox360 3 flashing red lights


Google up the red ring of death. Its a common over-heating problem on Xbox 360s. There are various solutions to this problem. The most recommended one is to take your console to Microsoft to get it checked. If you dont have an xbox 360 representative in your country as is my case, the second best solution is to buy a new 360 which comes more "prepared" for this issue. If you dont feel like spending 400 dolars on a newer model of the 360 then you should try some of the alternative temporary fixes. Most fixes have been reported as temporary, although if you are lucky maybe your Xbox 360 will last a long time fixed.

Basically solutions require to void your guarantee. Any fix which requires you to open your Xbox (the thermal-paste and the rubber fixes, etc (i will post link at end of comment)) will automatically void the guarantee. Theres a temporary solution which almost always works which is to wrap your xbox into towels without the hard drive and cables, only the power cable pluged in, and the console turned on. It will heat up and after 10 or 15 minutes unwrap it, let it cool down and you'll be playing in no time. Although this is definitely not recommended as you will be over-heating lots of components which are working well and could damage them. Well, hope this link works and saves you money. http://www.fixya.com/support/t142158-3_flashing_red_lights
