Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I bought my son a x-box 360 for x-mas. I thought it was from a legit business but.... It was great price for a system with 5 games (shoulda known it was to good to be true,,lol) It wasn't till afterwards I noticed the disks where burnt to DVD+R's so I imagine it would have to modded to do this. I have called tech support and they said my system came from the states even though I live in Canada and when I went back to the business he was gone! (no surprise) Guess I got scammed!
anyways, It worked great up until about 2 weeks ago,,then I seen the Orange/yellow colored lights (not red), and thought uh-oh,,but after turning it off and on it worked fine,,but a couple days later it started giving us problems ejecting,,it acted like the disk would get stuck, we would turn it off for a few minutes and then no problem out comes the disk,,but then it started giving us the read disk error even on brand new disks and now the freaken thing keeps resetting itself everytime you turn it on even without a disk in it.
Anyways (even though i haven't called them) I am assuming that if it's modded I can forget about support from Microsoft so any ideas how I can fix this problem myself, I have all the disassembly info and guides to repair but not sure what I am suppose to be repairing,,lol
Any help is appreciated
P.S. I am a computer Tech so hardware doesn't scare me.
Possibly the motherboard is bust and need replacing - I've had mine repaired under warranty for a similar fault and that's what Microsoft told me the problem was.
