    I originally had the three rings disease and fixed it myself much at my dismay that something else would go wrong. Now the xbox works and plays for a minute and then freezes up. I have also gotten the unplayable disc message as well. If there are any suggestions as to what to do I would appreciate the help.

My xbox360 game mercenaries2 does not work it allways turns of.


IS it giving you an error message?

If the 360 is shutting itself off, then this has nothing to do with the game, and you have some form of power supply problem. Try a different game. If it still does it, you most likely need a new power adapter. If you are getting an error message (unplayable disc/dirty or damaged disc) Then the most likely cause is your optical lens in the DVD drive is dying.

Keeps saying open tray when game in inserted..when system starts to run...it says either open tray or disc unplayable ...mlb 2k9 xbox360/live


check around the disk tray for dust and use a vaccum cleaner to clean it, then use a wet cd lens cleaner with cleaning fluid a few time.
This should cure the problem but it might be that your drive is dead

The error message "Unplayable Disc" for the xbox360


$300?!? anyways. this came straight from a store right? normally this only happens when you copy the game on a disk and play it. Contact Microsoft.

It only plays Normal Xbox games


The open tray and unplayable disc is because the lens isn't strong on the drive and needs to have a Pot calibration done to it to make the lens signal stronger. That should fix the open tray/unplayable disc issue. I have done this to quite a few drives and all have been working fine since.

When i put a game into my xbox360 it reads unplayable disc.


Try blowing in the cd drive to get any dust off of the laser that could be one of the causes if it doesn't work then send it into microsoft if warranty is good if not then you try poping open the 360 yourself and try look at the disc drive but more than likely if it doesn't read anything thing then your better off at getting a new disc drive, that includes if it doesn't read dvds. let me know if cant fix it and you don't want to buy a new cd drive.

Xbox360 will not read some games sometimes or will start then go


The "Unplayable Disc" error has also been heavily reported. The error appears to be limited to the Hitachi-LG CD/DVD ROM drives that replaced the earlier Toshiba-Samsung drives. The error message is preceded by a loud series of grinding noises and the system returning to the dashboard. From that point forward, any disc that is put in the unit will result in the "Unplayable Disc" error (although if the user was to eject and close the disc tray in quick succession the disc may sometimes play). In the majority of cases, this error is caused by the adhesive that holds a small magnetic washer heating up and allowing the washer to affix itself to the metal top of the drive. After this occurs, the system can no longer spin the disk as necessary. Numerous fixes are available on the internet, but all involve opening the console box. Opening the console will result in the unit's warranty being voided. Microsoft will fix the error for a fee . Included in the repair fee is one additional year of warranty coverage.

if you dont give a damn about warranty

open it up and clean the drive and wipe everything down with a q-tip. and replace it back

thank you
