When i tip my xbox 360 it makes a weird noise then scratches the disk until it is unreadable.


Moving the Xbox 360 while turned on can result in the disc spinning against hard plastic resulting in deep circular scratches. When moving the Xbox, make sure it is empty of discs and the power is off. It is recommended to have the Xbox parallel to the ground but you may also stand it up for convenience purposes.

It made a scratching noise and scratched my whole game disc


This is a common problem with the Xbox 360. If the console isn't completely level, or is moved while a disk is inside, chances are it will get scratched.

My Xbox 360 keeps scratching my game discs?


Sounds like the xbox console needs the laser adjusted or secured as per the other comments. For any discs issues, read on.

Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs.Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is; if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.

Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is normally required to fix laser burn scratches or damage to XBOX discs.

For further help on XBOX disc repairs or to get XBOX discs repaired back to "As Good As New Condition", visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie

Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.

If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the disc is in play, the games console itself may require repair. You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.

Hope this Helps!!

Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but professional disc repair services is normally required to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

It has a new scratch that happened when i pulled my controler by


When you pulled the controller, and the Xbox made the "weird noise" it was probably caused by the game sliding out of the tray. This can happen when a disk is spinning in the console and the console suddenly jerks in any direction.

Each of my discs are gettin scratched


Don't leave your cds in the xbox while its off.. the older models tend to scratch them while they are off, and when you start up the box with a cd in it probably messes the cd...

You're better off downloading games to hard drive since It reads the disk alot less.. preventing scratching while it checks it.

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
