Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Hi Guys, long time reader, first time poster. I have a question regarding my XBOX 360. I was playing a game on the console and whilst it was still on reading a game I banged it... It turned off immediately and has not turned on since. When i press the on button, nothing happens, no lights present. I know very little about these consoles, all I can tell you is it has a 20gb HDD and was built in 2007. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. Brad.

    Top Stuff, appreciate the prompt reply. I had a look at the USB ports and found no sign of a bent port. Am i required to send the console to Microsoft to be looked at or are there people around that can do it? If so, are there any business you know off the top of your head?

    Thanks Damonumber5!

Hi Brad,
I would usually suggest,looking at the power brick light, if its red, that's your problem,or if you are playing with a plug and play kit to disconnect it, or to see if there are any bent pins in the usb ports, that are shorting your console,this is the first place I look and it usually is a bent pin, I would still check these but the fact that the console was knocked and it went off immediately does suggest an internal resistor fault, there are a few it could be, so it would probably be best to book a pro repair center rather than have a go yourself.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

    Hi, you can send it to microsoft, but unless you bought the extended warranty for your console you will have to pay because the 3 year warranty is only for rrod or E74, you could contact them and say it had rrod now it just won't turn on,dont tell them you've banged it,they might go for it, visit www.xbox.com/support there are sites advertised on this page you could try.

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.

When I put a disc in t says, to play this disc you need to put it in a xbox 360 consol. Of course it is in an xbox 360.


If you have legitimate Xbox 360 hardware device, you get this error if you try to play a copied game it would give you this error.

Xbox says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.. only does this to 360 games originals work. i restored to factory setting but still same problem even with new games


There seems to be theory that if you hold down the A button whilst the game is trying to load it can solve the problem, but the honest truth is that your disk drive is dead or doomed. If it is saying this with every game disk, every time then you need to send it for repair. Contact support on 0800 587 1102

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?


Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.

Disc wont read


Hi

Are you using a modded Xbox 360 console?, if not then the disc you are trying to play is probably a copied Xbox 360 disc which would not work on an original Xbox 360

Plays dvd's but not games


Hi,
Dependant on the age of the xbox.
Heres a couple of things to try.
1:) try a music CD.
2:) Try a laser head cleaner. ( usually the CD type ) some cleaner disks have a few small brushes on that wipe over the laser head. ** there are several causes for the 360 not reading Game-Disks**
3:) if you have the backwards compatable xex file from microsofts web-site. ( enabling you to play an official XBOX1 Or original xbox game. Try 1 of these, if the standard xbox game works, then the problem may be with the laser unit itself.
i.e standard xbox games are single layer, 360 games are dual layer. when reading a dual-layer disk the laser power output is increased, by the reader.

If you need any more help, regarding this.

feel free to mail me.

Mike @ compurepair.
