Yes! you can contact Mircrosoft, the number can be found on the box that your 360 came in... call them and let them know that your Xbox no longer reads disks and they will send you a box in which you can send them your Xbox and they will repair it and send it back to you Free of Charge! It takes a few weeks to a month to get your 360 back, but it's worth the wait when it's working perfect again!

Hope this helps :)

The x`box was saying it can't read the disc. contact u


If you have the new kinect xbox 360 dashboard and you cannot get your xbox 360 console to read your game discs or DVDs, you are not alone. An update that was recently applied through Xbox Live makes your discs unreadable.
Remove the update by navigating to:
System Settings->Memory->STOP HERE!
You should see your Hard Drive highlighted, if not move to it and then enter this on your controller:
X,LB,RB,X,LB,RB,X
Delete System Update will appear, make sure there is no media in your disc drive and select YES. You system will restart and appear to hang DO NOT TURN IT OFF OR MESS WITH IT!
After a couple minutes your system will start and you should be able to play discs again.

Xbox wont read discs


Does your friend smoke cigarette?

2 possibilities:

1st: he smoke a lot and the lens is dirty.

2nd, he plays a lot and the lens is end of life.

You can first try to open it and clean the lens with 90% alcool.
you use a q-tip and smoothly on the lens
If it doesn't make it find a replacement lens. (it's not that hard to install)
here you can find that for 6$ free shippping

You can also try to sell it that way it's not a major problem for someone who feels comfortable with the inside machine.

good luck!

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!

Doesnt read discs correctly...


I am almost 100% certain that the warranties of xbox 360 consoles have been extended 3 years.

I also had this problem some months ago, and Im sorry to say that I was told the problem is in the hardware. I had to send my xbox in, and they sent me a brand new one, fully covered under warranty.

Give xbox a call... 1-800-4MY-XBOX, ask about the warranty of your system, and also let them know your problem.
The only way I ever got any games to work with this problem, was to open and close the tray over and over until it finally worked, so I finally just sent it in. Good luck.
