Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Wont read disks,, goes to white screen with all the foreign text.

I have the above problem almost every time I put in a game disk in my xbox 360. Usually after about 4 or 5 tries I hear the spinning sound and then it works ok. Its a continuous problem. Is this the hard drive going bad, the reader? any help?

It shouldnt be your harddrive, it should be more of an issue dealing with the cd drive. Do some research on google; look up your issue. If you have confirmed the problem, or are still confused, call Microsoft.( 1-800-4MY-XBOX)
They will prompt you on the problem, may be able to find a solution over the phone, but if they dont, you can send your 360 to them. If your console is still under warranty, than everything will be free.(including shipping) If you arent under warranty, you can do some research to see who can fix the problem for cheaper, but I would reccomend and trust microsoft the most since they are the manufacterer. (If they dont fix it they take it again and also give you 1 month free of xbox live).

If you haven't already, try running a dvd cleaner through it a couple times. Usually clears it up for me.
Good luck. Please let me know how you made out, thanks.

Problem


Did this system play games at one time? If it isnt the original dvd drive with the original bin it will do this. Otherwise you just need to replace the laser or the dvd drive.

Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
