Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

I have had my xbox since 2008 with no problems. I joined lovefilm last year again with no problem but the past few disks they've sent me i get the disk error (open tray) thing and although ive cleaned the disks it doesnt recognise them. So i assumed it must be just bad disks but i've just tried them on my partners new slim xbox and they work fine on there? All of my normal bought games work fine and the ones from love film that i have from previous work fine so what on earth is going on? Is it just that the disks are too bad for my old xbox to read but the sensor is more sensitive on the new one so can read them easier?

A tough one. I also suffered from open tray errors often and have found that sometimes all you need is a good laser cleaner ( designed for laptops or pc's ).Hope this helps.

Hang in their friend - fate has been very unkind to you lately, but the PS3 is really a great system - I've had mine for a few years now with no trouble. Also, from a pure probability standpoint, the XBox 360 has even higher rates of broken hardware - Microsoft has spent billions of dollars combating the red ring of death. Especially after investing so much money in games, I would stick it out with Sony on this one. Sorry your luck has been so terrible!

3 flashing red rings already had this sent in for

There are a few upgrades/modifications that can be performed on the Xbox to repair the 3 RROD. 1 main issue is the GPU heat sink. The thermal paste should be upgraded and the Xclamps need to be removed. Replacing the X clamp heat sink studs with screws and neoprene washers. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask! Good luck!

System won't read games and makes buzzing noise
