Hello

Please be specific as to what happens when you enter a game into the console, make sure the disc is clean.

You can purchase a new DVD drive for this console for around 20-50$ from ebay for example, the drive will need to be spoofed to match the Id of the existing drive so the console thinks the same drive is still in the xbox(they are paired, another drive will not work with another console unless the id matches)
This is a advanced procedure and the drive will need to be removed from the xbox and connected to a computer with a sata chipset made by VIA to perform a firmware update on the drive.
Or you can send this off to Microsoft to another repairer.

but first please be specific as to what happens with the console when the game is inserted, does this happen with all games, how about DVD movies?

This would be consistant with a bad optical drive more often then not that is what is going on, I recommend www.videogamerepair.com for the fix because they just know what there going. The new drive is going to chime in about $120 from your wallet along with any labor that was produced. So you might want to consider the AGE, and the play time it has had before you decide to fork up the dinero.

A new system I am talking a basic is like $199 you can take you hard drive off the old put it on the new and its just as if you had the old system but working and with a warranty. Or you can bust out the bux.

Ether way here repair or replace is on your plate. Please do be considerate and leave postive ratings and feedback you answer WAS FREE!

Sometimes the console will not load to the screen where the big (xbox360) icon, the lights around the on/off button flash profusely and it seems as though the screen has frozen. if the loading gets past...


Those are common error on the XBox 360, after some extended use. You can try to send it to be repaired, and if it happens again, consider the purchase of a newer model.

Screen freeze.


two work-around methods for those consumers who are experiencing the "freeze" issue: 1) Remove or disable the HDD
or,
2) Load three different Xbox 360 games to the main title screen of each game then load Major League Baseball 2K6 on Xbox 360. All three Xbox 360 games must be completely different before loading Major League Baseball 2K6.

Everytime i turn my xbox 360 on a red light comes


also know as the ring of death, its a software issue and you need to replace your system

One red light and slow loading


The clean disk and the "one red light" are 2 different things. You are batteling heat my friend. Unfortunately, your freezing is not a good sign if your "one red light" displays "E74" on the bottom of the screen. There are a gazillioin different methods of doing an xclamp replacement. Thats what you need.

As far as the disk read, you probably just need a cleaning. since you'll already be inside that ******, open up your dvd drive (4-6 phillips screws) and give it a good alcohol shalackin' too!

NOTE: There is probably someone on your local craigslist or used game/videop store that can repair it for you. By the time you buy all of the hardware and materials to do it "right", you might as well just pay someone that will do it for you. (don't pay more than $40.00 and look into getting a new one)
GOOD LUCK!

Playstation 3 shuts down as game loads


Generally there are a couple of things that can cause this. Bad installs of games, and more commonly thermal damage. The bad news is it will probably have to be repaired and Sony generally charges about $150 for that. Hopefully its under warranty? =)

There is some talk that the new firmware download may have altered physical parts that control the temperature inside the unit. Although that's just heresay i've been hearing more and more people thinking this is the case.

Red light


The modem doesn't really have anything to do with the 360, it's a separate issue. If the console is freezing and giving you red lights then that's different altogether, please explain with a little more detail and I'll try to help you further!
