Question about Microsoft Xbox Console

1 Answer

My original Xbox was softmodded, and after playing a game for about an hour, it froze. I turned it on and off and it semi-booted. It started the green ball of goo, but the goo ball froze with a lag-type skip of the sound. After turning off and on for about a minute i just kept getting popping sounds without the console doing anything. I put it in the freezer, and plugged it back in, still nothing. So I just left it alone for a day, now I can play it, but only for an hour or so before it locks up and won't do anything. I have reverted to the original dashboard, and it persists.

It sounds like when they soft modded the box they may have compromised the circuits inside, especially if it starts to fault after heating up. Take back to the modder and they should be able to help. Good Luck.

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

Does an Original Xbox Game From The UK Work On a USA Console


It probably wont work. EU is in PAL, NA is in NTSC-M, japan is NTSC-J which are all different region locks. You can however if you mod the xbox force it to play games from other countries pretty easily. If you softmod the X-Box using a older PC with IDE port and a CD it should do it. Search how to softmod orgninal xbox. The only thing I did different from the intructions was disable shadow C drive.

I got a xbox as a gift from a friend a few years ago and it was handed down to me. Games i only played at that time were lego star wars and halo combat evolved. Then 1 year after i started playng halo 2...


Best guess? It over-heated and fried the harddrive. Its toast bro, Microsoft is not going to honor any type of anything on the original X-Box anymore, no way. I have an original X-Box that works perfect, i'll sell it to you for $30 if you'd like =D

The system froze while playing a game, and now


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Why does my xbox say my games are dvds


Are you using copied CD's of Xbox games, Original Xbox 360 would read such copied game discs as normal DVD's and would show a message as "Play DVD"

To play such games it requires the Xbox 360 DVD drive to be flashed, which is called as a Softmod, if you do so you would be banned for playing on Xbox Live and such act is prohibited since it accounts to game piracy

Color distoration, then the game froze and now video wont work


It could be as simple as the video cables. Get another set of cables and try it. You can get them pretty cheap on auction sites. IF that dont work then I would say your headed for the 3 red lights or no video problem. If thats the case then check with ms and see if your still under warranty. If not we can help. We are registered repair service on this site. thanks

Cannot read disk


Very common. there's even a law suit against MS regarding this problem, and a few dedicated websites. The problem is with the DVD drive. MS uses a few different manufacturers for the optical drive, and while the Samsung one for an exmaple is considered safe, some of the rest are buggy as hell. If you call MS they will offer to fix it for 50 - 100 $, which is offcourse BS, since it's a clear defect on their part. A way around it, is to softmod your XBOX to be able to play the games from the hard drive. This is likely to prevent you from playing live though. Here are a couple pf dedicated sites: http://www.sentientcreations.com/xbox-issues/ http://www.joystiq.com/2004/10/28/gamer-suing-microsoft-for-bad-xbox-drives/ Good luck
