Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox problem well first my xbox came up with this error when i put a game in that said "place this disk into a xbox 360 consule" then it started overheating and causing it to shut down after 10min of game play if i even got the game to work without the error message. then the screen started freezing while i was playing games. i could still talk to the people online but couldnt play. and now my xbox 360 wont play DVDs, or games? if anyone knows what to do let me know im in the MLG for call of duty 4 and need to play ASAP

I bought and Xbox 360 elite 120mb consule today from a pawn shop. I got home and the xbox consule seems to be working however when I put game disc in they dont play. It says they are reading the disc and...

Try to wash one of your disks with dishwashing soap, just one is enough to do the cleaning. Start mixing the disks when they dont work, this will clean the lens. i had the same problem, worked fine for me.

Xbox360 will play cds but no games, says onscreen

If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

Sometimes like you mention it will still play CD's though.

My 360 consul will nor read the game cd. the consul powers up finen, when I put in a game new or old it does not rev up but i can hear a clicking sound inside.

There is a problem with your game player you might have to send it in to microsoft to fix it or you might have to get a repair kit for this problem.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

Xbox 360 thinks it`s an Xbox and won`t register a 360 game


Strange Issue, but I think its a possible solution to it. I would say the drive and/or laser needs to be changed.

Consul will not recognize games

This means that there is a problem with the lens on the disc tray. here are the steps you need to try

1. Select memory -> Select Y button for device options then press the following sequence on your controller

X,X Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X

You will see a message that goes like this " This will perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage device, would you like to continue? Select Yes

2. If this steps doesnt work and still continue to get the message " OPEN TRAY"

3. Call xbox customer support to have your xbox serviced. Good Luck! hope your console still has warranty ( 1-800-4MY-XBOX )

Xbox 360 has Disk read error

if there is no physical damage to the outside of the console, take it back to where you purchased it for an exchange, it sounds like you may have knocked the laser out of place or even damaged the board.

Xbox 360 leaves scraches on my game.

if your 360 is still under warenty with microsoft they will replace your games and your system. give them a call. If its not under warenty you will have to purchase a replacement disk drive as its clear the laser is off kilter. In the mean time i would suggest not putting any other disks into the system until the issue has been resolved. Good luck!

Says "insert xbox 360 disk only"

common problem, the disks arent clean, clean them with rubbing alcohol, nail poolish, eye glass cleaner. if they are new disks then u were ripped off, go back to place of purchase and tell em.
