Sounds like your Laser is either dirty or dead. Try getting a Laser Lens cleaner and running it through your xbox a few times. If this doesn't work, Contact Microsoft about having your console repaired, because your Laser has probably died :( Sorry

Plays dvd but not games


Any more details then that? I am assuming that you are not the original owner of the Xbox 360? you bought it used?

won't be ebale to try and assist you without more information on the Xbox 360. Has it worked for YOU before? Have you been able to play games on it and it suddenly stopped playing games? Has it been modified? Has it been moved around a lot recently?

Please be specific on your history with the Xbox 360 and we can see what you might have as an issue.

My xbox 360 turns off whenever i play a game. We have two xbox's and one turns off very quickly when playing games, and the other turns off after about 10minutes of game play. This happens with all...


There could be several causes. If you’ve managed to run other appliances with the same voltage through these power outlets without them turning off then it won’t be the outlets themselves.

It could be the power cable; try swapping them to see if this affects the frequency (10 mins vs ‘very quickly’). If this makes no difference then it won’t be them that’s at fault.

The most likely cause (unless both are simply faulty) is overheating. The Xbox 360 produces a lot of heat and there’s a failsafe built in to turn it off immediately if either the fan is malfunctioning or it’s too clogged with dust to ventilate properly.

Make sure nothing is sitting on top of them and that all ventilation areas are clear. If you think there’s a chance they might have become dusty, get a can of compressed air to dislodge any built up dust in the vents & a vacuum cleaner to remove it.

Plays dvd but not games


When you replaced the DVD drive did you swap the circuit board (on the bottom of the DVD drive when you open it up).

Every DVD drive is "paired" with the Xbox 360, so you need to open up the DVD drives, and swap the green circuit boards on the bottom of the DVD drives. Should work after this.

The console thinks the disk is a movie and displays play and pause and chinese looking letters appear on the screen. It won't allow me to do anything


The problem you are facing is of a copied Xbox 360 game you are probably trying to play on a Genuine Xbox 360, these discs are read as a movie disk and it shows as "Play DVD".

When you try to play such discs, it would give you dvd media control bar on the bottom and the message in chinese letters is actually a message asking you to insert this disc in a Xbox 360, which is actually a Modded Xbox 360 that is required

Swaping game drives


You have to understand that the xbox dvd drive is married with 360 motherboard by firmware...
when you try to change drives you should backup your original drive firmware...and load it in another drive...it will runs as well in your console...or if you prefer just change the optical lens inside the drive...and you won´t need to re-write firmware....

Xbox 360 not loading games


no, before taking apart anything from the console do this

check the time and date settings,make sure that the timezone is correct as well, after you corrected it, restart the console

try to load the game without the hard drive or memory unit inserted
if these work, delete any corrupted file on the hard drive or memory unit, then perform system maintainance, system settings>>memory, press y for device options, then press x, x, left bumper, right bumper, x, x, then press yes..

Hi,
Get A New DVD drive.
I,d suggest That Your Laser is,nt kicking up the required Voltage To read The dual-Layers ?
X-Box games Are single Layer DVD. 360s Are Dual Layer ( DL )
Also try An Original Or Over 5 gig DVD ( Thats most likely to Be Dual Layer )
