Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox not playing games

I bought a used xbox and a brand new COD4, but when I tried to play it the console didn't recognize it as a video game. When it finally did it would start loading for about three seconds and then the screen would get all distorted and that was the end of that. I was very frustrated but then a friend gave me his used Halo 3 game, and it worked fine. I was convinced that Best Buy had sold me a faulty COD4 so i excahnged it for a new one. That one also did not work. Angry and confused I then exchanged the recently exchanged COD4 for NCAA2008. This also did not work. I called the xbox support center and had a 30 minute conversationg, but the guy didn't have a solution. Now my brother came home from collge and has the new GTA game and that also doesn't work. So it appears that only Halo 3 works and that has some occassional minor glitches. How do I fix this? Where can I send it in to get it fixed?

I would have sent it to microsoft for repair. (Usually when they dont know a simple solution, as with your situation, They will send you a new console.) It will be worth the 120 bucks. and you will get a 1 year warranty.

I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it


You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

CoD4 disc won't read.


how many times have you tried to play the disc?
the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.

if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.
