If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

So you dont normally need to replace the drive just stop the heat build up and you will be fine.

My xbox360 games has ring on it


If the game has a ring around the disc like a scratch you want to go to game stop and have them buff it out . How your games got scratch ring on them if u hit or if you move the 360 from horizonal to vertical while theres a game in the dvd drive it will make a loud buzz sound like a blender with no ice in it and thats what put a scratch ring in your games . you can a skipped disc fix from game stop its called skip disc fixer . its a pate that you put on the game and gently buff out the scratch . For heavy scratches that r deep you might want to buy the game used.

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!!

My xbox 360 won't play my Fifa 09 game. I accidentally moved my xbox while the game was running and i heard the disc rattle. Didn't notice anything weird cause i stopped playing at that time. I go to play...


When you accidently moved your Xbox while the game was running, it probably put a scratch on your FIFA 09 disc.

You can try to fix it by using a cd /dvd scratch repair kit. You can find them at just about any store that sells cd or dvds.

I had a disc that wouldn't play and used one of the repair kits on it because I had nothing to lose. As I was applying the solution to the disc, I thought.... this is a complete waste of time.

When I wiped the solution off and put the disc in my Xbox, I had no expectations that the game would work. Well... I was wrong, the disc actually worked.

There's no guarantee the repair kit will work in your particular case but, you're in the same boat I was in... You've got nothing to lose by trying.

The only other option is to buy a new disc.

Xbox won't load Hi I have Xbox


It could be the laser needs cleaning, or the game disc itself make sure there are no scratches on the game disc underneath. if other games play and just that game wont then its possible it could be scratched and need of a clean.

Message saying put disc into xbox 360


1. Turn off your XBox and unplug all cables from the console and the wall, including a wireless adaptor if you have one.

2. Clean off your game discs using a non-scratch cloth.

3. If your game discs are already scratched, you can most likely take them to a video game store, such as EB Games, and get it cleaned for a small fee.

4. Plug your cables back in, except for the wireless adaptor or network cable (ie. don't connect to the internet).

5. Start up one of your games and see if it loads.

6. If it loads, turn off your XBox, and connect to the internet.

7. If it still does not load, it may be a disc drive problem in which case, contact Microsoft XBox 360 support at: www.xbox.com
