You were talking to a complete **** at M$ then. Not too uncommon unfortunately. Save yourself the trouble and trade in the broken system towards the purchase of a Wii or PS3 at a Gamestop... they trade in broken systems!

When i play my xbox fuzzy black lines are up and down the screen. for example when i play online games in call of duty. it is not the game.. i tryed other games too. sometimes my 360 does not turn on... it...


That's a tuff one to answer . It depends on several things 1 do you think you
could disassemble your console with a good tutorail ? 2 It will depend on the
condition of the P.C. board . warp vs flat. Chances are Good if you install what's
called a Conformal Compression Assembly you should be good to go. Or have a
shop reflow the G.P.U. that should also fix it .Cost 50.00-80.00 so shop
around for some one local.

here is the link to the Conformal Compression Assembly

It won't play none of my game only dvd and cd


Your drive laser is dead .if your handy with tools
and want to save some money . simply go online
and check what make/ model drive you have and
buy new/reconditioned drive from ebay and swap
the old drives board in to the new one . The drives
cost 30.00 40.00 and This is a sure fix .

Or have a shop swap it out for 60.00-90.00

My game will only play for a while


You are experiencing whats called laser drop out.
This is caused by a weak laser that brightens up
to read game data and then dims as it heats up
to the point it can not see the Game.

The solution if find out what drive you have
and buy a new 20.00 laser and follow a tutorial
on installing.

Or you can have a shop swap it out for
60.00- 70.00 some time less if you shop
around.

If you have any questions feel free to ask

Bought Lips recently and played it fine first


The game was released broken. There is an update on xbox live that fixes it. So you pay twice, once for the game and once for xbox live. If you don't have xbox live or no internet you simply can't play. In other words you got robbed. Nice scam huh?

It will play dvd but wont play games


You have a weak laser as you suspected . You have 3 options

1 find out what drive you have . with a on line tutorial go to Rich's PSX
and buy the correct laser for your drive 20.00-30.00 . Then use a on line
tutorail on how to install your laser , It's not that hard + you'll save 60.00
on a shop repair.

2 Have a shop swap it out for 70.00-80.00


3 send it to Microsoft ( Not my first choise)


if you need more info Ask

My xbox 360 is reading the games...BUT!!!!


It's doesn't recognize this as a valid 360 game , this is often
one of the symptoms of the laser unable to jump to higher
brightness in order to read duel layer games . This can
be fixed by installing a new laser . The laser cost 20.00-30.00
and their not hard to install if you want to save some money.

Or you can have a shop swap it out for 70.00-80.00.

if you need more info ,ask.

Game plays for several minutes and locks up. if


Its the G.P.U. and some times the C.P.U
The Fix is to have the G.P.U. re-flowed back
to the main P.C. board .

Or you can do an X clamp mod on it
that will buy you some time before you
take it to a shop

Don't evan bother with Microsoft service center
in texas, I have a workbench full of them for repair

if you need more info feel free to ask.

Hello my xbox 360 plays games as dvd's it tells me to insert it into a xbox 360 or reads it as a dvd. it happens with all my games i dunno what the problem is


The laser is to weak to read at a high rate ,required
by game data . The remedy is to either to replace
the laser yourself (Not that hard to do) for about
20.00-30.00 .Or have a shop swap it out for 80.00
or so.

That will fix the problem.

Everytime I try and play a game the picture has black dots all over it. Going to home screen they go away but my avatar is pixeled. What do I need to do?


first know what is causing the problem.
which is the G.P.U getting very hot and
warping the P.C.board causing connections
to break open

You can have Microsoft repair it?? Naa
You could repair it yourself ,little risky,and it may not last
or you can have a repair shop that knows what there
doing re-flow the G.P.U. at a cost of 80.00
that will fix the problem and i will stay fixed
trust me i know
