Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

My 360 Elite, which I have only had for 7 months now, is not loading games, more than a the first few minutes of it, and says the disc is dirty, what do i need to do to fix that? Before that, it was showing lines and blotchy black areas during the game, I have felt the outside and it is not getting hot, and I am not having the red ring.

Try and clean your laser with a lense cleaner...as the laser is just like your own eye...any bit of dust in it and it will just irritate the laser unit....if that fails and your feel confident then open your system open the class 1 laser unit and with some surgical sprits and a cotton bud...gently clean the lense (a few swipes will do it) and let it dry about 1 min will do...then fire up your system load a disc on the try and dont forget to put the unit lid back on before you start disc...

Xbox 360 Elite won't read disc


Is it every single disc you have or only 1? If it is every single disc then your disc reader could be dirty or dusty. If it isn't every disc you need a new disc. Try DVDs as well. Make sure to try 5-10 other discs. If you play one disc way to much and the system does't get proper cooling you can actually burn the CD sometimes. It is very very rare but it is a possibility. If none of these things solve your problem then you need to look into a new console because it means you disc head reader is shot and needs to be replaced but that costs twice as much as a new 360 elite.

It said that i had to clean the call of duty game off then i did then it said go to www.xbox .com/suport console


You either have a dirty laser or bad laser. Thats if the game disc isnt scratched bad. If your 360 plays other games I would look at the disc if its not the disc try cleaning your laser lens off with qtip and rubbing alchol. If your 360 doesnt play any games try replacing the entire laser. Lasers are pretty cheap on ebay.

The xbox 360 elites keeps on saying open tray when trying to play


1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

Gears of War 2 won't play


It honestly sounds like its the disc and not the drive. Try cleaning your disc in warm soapy water and dry it with a soft cloth. If that dosen't help try it in someone elses system.If it does the same thing in theirs then take it to a Blockbuster Video or a Gamestop and see if they will put it in their machine and resurface it. I think they charge a couple of bucks to do it.

Wont play/read any xbox games


1 dirty lens
2 dirty disc
3 programme error

1 i think the xbox cleans its own lens but check the manual if not get a good lens cleaner.

2 clean the disc always clean your discs after and before you use them.

3 take off your hard drive and any memory cards and reset xbox to factory settings

Xbox 360 elite, call of duty 4 fault


Hi Jake,
Yhe only thing noticable here, is that the 360 elite has the 60 gig hard-drive instead of the Standard 20 gig, as fitted with the white 360. perhaps you might be able to try a 20 gig hard-drive on the box. May work, worth a shot. i,d also check microsofts site, for any game updates or patches for the game itself.

hope this helps ya buddy.

p.s plenty of people would be willing to trade your elite for a standard white 360. this would be another alternative.

Mike @ Compurepair.
