The best solution is to not sweat it at all, and since it is under warranty, just send it back to fix it.

Xbox power light is blinking whats wrong


No, the red flashing lights does not always depict a hard drive crash, Shawn Wallace.

This can mean a number of things...
__________________________________________

- Your Xbox 360 GPU or CPU are overheating. This can be because of a buildup of dust, the fan not working properly, or just from leaving your Xbox on too long.

- Your Hardware has failed, and needs to be repaired

- Something in the Xbox 360 isn't plugged in all of the way.

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

Xbox 360 scratching discs and making funny noise


A number of possible things could be wrong. The xbox360, if has been laying on its side could of overheated and the electrical components could of melted. This is common and in the manual it is advised you stand it up. Second reason could be the update, try reinstalling the update, this way its back to its default since you installed it.

Open tray error on xbox 360


Mine had the same problem. On mine the spindle wasn't turning the game. It kept trying to then quit and said "Open Tray". The warranty was out so I took it apart opened the dvd drive and took apart the spindle. The grease in the spindle was black, I guess from all the heat. Cleaned it out and put some high temperature grease on spindle shaft and in the hole. It now spins with ease. There are videos on youtube on how to take apart the xbox and to take apart the dvd drive and spindle. Just pay close attention at how tight the screws the hold the spindle down are.I hope this helps

360 disk tray


What I did was took apart my Xbox and put the disc tray back on the tracks, carefully lifting it over the circle thing in the middle. When I lay my Box down horizontally, it opens and closes fine.
