Well this issue can happen for alot reasons. if you kept the 360 connect to the power jack during a storm. or maybe the power jack got damaged by pulling it to hard or to fast out of the 360. this issue could be just a cold soldering joint, or it could just be a bad powerjack on the board or a fuse blew. try to use a friend power brick tho

My xbox is not reading the games. There are no scratches I have to keep trying to start it over and over then finally it will read a game. I have no red lines

My Xbox did the same thing, and the first thing I did as weird as it might sound was, take the game out, and then change the orientation of the Xbox, so if it was standing up I put it on its side, and that seemed to work. When it stopped reading altogether no matter what I did I had to send it to Microsoft because the lenses died in the Xbox. so try moving the Xbox on its side or stand it up and see if it will be weird like my Xbox and start working. (make sure there is no game in the system when you move the xbox) but if that still doesn't work, these are your options and should be done in this order.
  1. Buy an lenses cleaning disk and try and clean the lenses. Heres a few examples
  2. If you have a warranty on the Xbox 360, make Microsoft fix it. they will fix it to no cost.
  3. If you have no warranty and the lenses cleaning disk didn't work, then your last option is to find a repair service to replace the lenses for you, or replace the lenses yourself. They cost only about $15, here's a few examples, but if you replace it yourself, it requires you to open the Xbox 360 which voids the warranty on the Xbox 360.
Hope this helps

My Xbox 360 makes a loud humming noise while i play

The Xbox 360 does not like to be moved when playing a disk some of the mechanics may have misaligned or slightly out of sync this may be reason the DVD drive is making those sounds.

I strongly recommend you remove any visible dust from the 360 especially the sides and air vent holes using a vacuum cleaner. Once youve cleaned it place it horizontal (never on carpet) on a flat surface well ventilated away from other devices that generate a lot of heat.

As for the 'shredding sound', place in **** game into the 360 when it starts to make those sounds again gently tap the 360 on top (where the DVD drive is) until it stops making that sound. This doesnt always work but has for me and many others.

My experience tells me that dust can build up not only inside the 360 but also the drive itself which can lead disc read errors and the sounds and you mentioned.

Remember DUST and HEAT is the 360's biggest enemy and can cause RROD, 1 Red Light Problem, and disk errors.

Hope this helps..good luck!

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen

If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.

Weird green and red discoloration

I had this problem with my last 360 that I had, I did the towel trick for about 2 or 3 months and it finally gave up on me. I was forced to turn it in to Microsoft and have them fix it. If you don't have a warranty you will have to pay 150$ to get it fixed. If you don't want it fixed and rather get a new one, Ebay sells new ones for around 230$. I know there are ways to fix it by opening your 360, but you have a greater chance of damaging it even more and ruining your warranty on your 360. Which Microsoft will not fix once you have opened it yourself.
