Re: xbox360

It is probably because you may have blown your fan, a way that worked for me is not complicated at all but you need a heavy duty vaccum and air hose
1) Open the disc tray and shut off the console. (disc tray must still be open when shut off)!
2) Attach the air hose to the nozzle on the vaccum that blows out air.
3) Go around the xbox 360 holes

After that i guarantee it works because it did for me and since i did it the screen saying "unreadable disc" has only showed up once!

Also Game Stop has a fan attachment that u may want to purchase

My xbox360 game mercenaries2 does not work it allways turns of.

IS it giving you an error message?

If the 360 is shutting itself off, then this has nothing to do with the game, and you have some form of power supply problem. Try a different game. If it still does it, you most likely need a new power adapter. If you are getting an error message (unplayable disc/dirty or damaged disc) Then the most likely cause is your optical lens in the DVD drive is dying.

Keeps saying open tray when game in inserted..when system starts to says either open tray or disc unplayable 2k9 xbox360/live

check around the disk tray for dust and use a vaccum cleaner to clean it, then use a wet cd lens cleaner with cleaning fluid a few time.
This should cure the problem but it might be that your drive is dead
