Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Xbox 360 I went to use my 360, turned it on, I saw the intro, and just when it was about to go to the dash, it shut off. What Happens now is that the box just tries to turn on, for like a second, then shuts off. The only signal that I have is when I plug a controller in, only the #1 and #4 quadrants light up on the controller for a split second. I do not get any flashing red lights since the box wont stay on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds to me like the power supply is bad. If you have a friend that owns a 360, borrow his power supply and try it out. MS doesn't warranty the power supply and you can buy a new one for around $50-$60. I have had PC's with the kind of problem you are describing and it has always ended up being the power supply.

Xbox 360 wont read any of my games all of the sudden. stays in dash board. whats up

You may need to either clean the laser or replace the dvd rom loader, test this by using different types of discs, dvd , cd, etc. If some work and some dont, clean the laser with a cotten cue tip, otherwise you may need to replace the dvd rom. Please check the version of the dvd loader you have before putting in a new one. Good Luck.

Brand new xbox and fable 2 disc. Will not play!

This will surely lead to the red ring of death people are talking about, i got that the other day, sent my xbox to microsoft and they fixed it for me for free, But you cant have your warranty sticker broken or they wont touch it. Microsoft will fix it for free since it is a problem for nearly all the xbox 360 they made.
