The lights on the ring wont light up if there isnt a controller present. Try using a plug and play cable to ensure the controller is faulty or the battery is faulty. Also try using the sync buttons on the xbox and the xbox controleller. If the Xbox controller lights up the controller the controller is ok.Good luck.

When i insert a disk it does not spin to read it and i hear 3 knocking sounds


The motor for your xbox has been damaged, so it is unable to spin the disk to read it, the knocking sound is the motor trying to work but failing. You will have to speak with a technician to get it fixed and/or replaced.

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking


Hello
If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

I got three red rings and it wont read any discs


If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online. However, before you submit your request, first try the following two steps to verify the problem:
  1. When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply light is not green, please follow the steps in one of the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: 906101 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906101/ ) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is red 906102 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906102/ ) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is orange 906103 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906103/ ) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is not illuminated
  2. Turn off the console. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the console again to see whether the problem re-occurs.

Just opened new rock band for xbox360 system won't reconize drums


Have you tried to connect the drums to the console? You do this by pushing the connect button on the console first, which is a little circular button located on the front faceplate of the console next to the memory card slots. The lights on the light ring should start spinning. Then you press and hold the connect button on the drums controller, and the lights should stop spinning. This should connect the drums. If you have tried this already, let me know.

Front lights kep spinning.


It sounds like you have a problem wiht your scanner. Because the lights are still spinning around alot that means that it is trying to read the game, but can't. So I would suggest getting a DISC cleaner. If that doesn't work, contact MICROSOFT if your warrenty isn't up and they should replace it for cheap. If your warrenty is up, then it will cost around $95 to fix.

Rings around the disc


It's caused by badly pressed discs - due to shake caused by the high speeds of the disc spinning and then catching the laser assembly. There are things you can do such as place foam pads inside the DVD drive itself, so discs cannot move as much when they spin.
