Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My son accidentally managed to get 2 disks in the tray on their vertically oriented 360. Now we can tray in a single disk, but it sounds like it is slipping and won't spin up. Is it likely the spindle would suffer permanent damage from this? Is it something that could be adjusted if I removed the drive?
i cant see any real serious damage being caused by inserting 2 discs, however we are talking about the xbox 360 here and the disc drives have had many problems amungst all xbox versions.
Regardless of your warrenty the xbox repair center should fix your xbox free of charge for you providing you dont tell them that your son may of caused the problem. because whether he did or not, they will assume he did.
It could just be a coincidence this happened when the 2 discs were inserted or it could of actually caused the problem.
if you really want to try and fix this yourself, check the dvd drive and make sure that the spindles center and the top disc latching part are correctly alligned.
the top part should be loose and will move freely, the main lower spindle near the laser should not spin so freely and if you spin it you shoul dbe able to feel if it is firmly attached to the motor or not.
Hope This Helps
