Ok seems to me your xbox360 is buggered. Both of you.

How long have you had your xbox360?

Im guessing what a year or two? Beacause Ive got a uncle whos got a xbox whos xbox is broke because its standing up and when he puts a game in its ok, BUT when he takes it out.

It Comes out like ****. Its all scratched up etc. and its due to his HardDrive Failure problems. Basically the hard drive in his xbox360 is either Old , Nackerd Or just ****. SO Im suggesting go send your xbox360 to microsoft or something aka Warrenty. Or Go buy Xbox360 warrenty off GAME. www.game.co.uk <-- £50 - £60

Game does not load keeps saying open tray,close try.


This has happened to me multiple times, but sooner or later, it will load, just keep at it. Try taking the disk out and closing the tray, then open and put the disk in and close the tray.

3 red lights on xbox360 and screen problems


Hi there!

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 3 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 3 red lights. Even before you get the 3 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 3 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that’s all.

Cheers!

Xbox 360-unplayable disks


the xbox360 drive is exposed to dirt and dust, a poor design, especially if the xbox is placed horizontally on a carpeted floor, the lens can be blown clean with a low pressure air supply. I use a vaccuum cleaner on blow, with a piece of fish tank air hose to reduce the nozzle size small enough to go inside the drive, does not take much to do it. a can of pc air, liquid air for cleaning keyboards also will do it

clean the drive,
many people put the xbox on the floor, the cooling fan sucks all kins of **expletive** into the open drive. a small piece of fishtank hose to the blow nozzle of a vaccuum cleaner, to blow loose the debri, and then **** it out. try not to disassemble the xbox, MS will void the extended red ring of death warranty for any opened xbox

3 flashing red lights


Those are called the Red Rings of Death, or 3 Red lights. They're pretty "feared" by most xbox360ers, as they seem to show that your xbox360 is *dead*. Try calling microsoft, because if it's in the warranty, you can trade it for a new one. I know it might be annoying, but it's the most simple solution...

Bro, this is most likely a hardware failure. Call microsoft and tell them you had gotten the 3 red rings of death for a brief day, and from there on your xbox 360 was broken. They have to fix it because all of the 360's are insured for free if they break for that reason. Your warranty will also be extended.
