Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

My "Deadrising" game for Xbox 360 has a faint ring around it.

I have picked up my disc after not using it for several months, looking back at it now i remember the xbox being moved whilst the game was still playing. i understand there might not be much i can do, but its a classic game and i dont see the point in buying another as "Deadrising 2" will be out soon.

It has a faint ring half way between the middle and the end of the disc, it works up into a certain point in the game..

Thankyou for reviewing the problem and it will be greatly appreciated to get back to me on my email address.

I suggest buying a disc cleaner since you are only having problems with some of your games and not all. You can find these at Walmart, Radioshack, etc.

The eject button on the xbox 360 does not work. Using the onscreen we are able to insert a game disc but no matter the game disc, the system cannot read it. We tried inserting discs several times but...


It has nothing to do with the eject button. if it clicks when you press it, then the button is fully functional. If the xbox has been opened up, and worked on before, look for things like severed traces, missing components, etc. But in all likelihood you are suffering from a fairly common hardware failure: a faulty disk drive. call microsoft and pray that youa re still under warranty. if not, then you have either shell out $100+, or open it up and replace the disk drive yourself.

Xbox 360 Console: my xbox 360 game has a ring around...


Your disc was most likely laserburned. The xbox will do this if you run a disc for a long stretch, this problem may occur... To continue playing the game, you will need to obtain a good disc and install the game to your hardrive. You will then be able to play the game on your laserburned disc.

Xbox360 seems to be scratching discs


Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. 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 professional disc repair services is normally rerquired to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

You can send your discs off to this Disc Repair Service and the discs shall be sent back as good as new.


If this is happening consistently without any knocks or movement of the console, I would contact Microsoft for advice on your games console.

Fifa 10 will not play in my x box 360


Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs. Scratches or marks on a discs, will render the game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating “Disc Read Error”.

Hello.

Xbox DVD-Drive's often scratch circles into your discs and some even got malfunctioning lasers that will burn rings into games.
To prevent the circular scratched from happening avoid moving your console at any time while it is running however it often also occurs just in regular use especially for older consoles with Hitachi or Samsung drives.
As far as I know Microsoft replaces discs that were clearly damaged by a console free of charge, at least here in Europe they do.
Try calling Xbox Customer Support and ask for a replacement it is worth a try for sure even if they shouldnt replace it they will at least give you a 1-month subscription for Xbox LIVE in exchange.

I hope this helps and Good luck!

Kind regards,

Xbox360 putting ring around disc


This happens when the disc touches the laser lens when the console is moved while the game is in it playing. You can fix this by either buying a monster clean screen cleaner or just go to your local Gamestop or Gamecrazy and have them buff your disk. It happened to me a few times, i got it buffed and everything is brand new.

Check the region code on the disc. There should be a code around the inside ring of the disc.

Not reading cds.


Now.. if it's four red rings, check your component cables, unplug them, then plug them back in, if it's only three lights flashing with the top-right quadrant remaining idle, then there is a problem with your hard drive and you have to send it in for repairs.. but as far as the fact that it won't play any games, try to get a disc that will clean the eye of the console something like "Maxell" player cleaner, that usually works.. if that doesn't help.. sorry
