Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
You remove the screws that hold the case on. Then you open the cd tray (you can do this manually by gently pulling it out or you can open the tray while still plugged in and then once it is out UNPLUG the power cord). Once the tray is out, if you look down inside the cd tray and laser casing you will see a little round glass looking device in the middle of the casing. Take some compressed air and blow out the inside of the case and inside the inner casing. Then take a cu tip and dip it in some regular rubbing alcohol and gently squeeze any excess off and gently clean the laser reader lens in a counter clockwise circular manner. Then let the alcohol dry for at least 1-2 minutes before plugging the device back in. If the cu tip comes out really dirty with blackish looking stuff repeat the process until the cu tip comes out clean. It is important that while working inside the device you UNPLUG the power cord. Plug the device back in and check to make sure the cd tray is operating normally and check any other components while you have the case off and if everything seems to be working fine, replace the case and screw it back into place. You might also want to clean your game cds while before placing them back into the game system using a very soft non abrasive lint free cloth with a little alcohol on it and make sure to let them dry for 1-2 minutes before placing in game system. If the cd has scratches on it you might want to invest in a scratch remover which you can get at your local walmart for about 5-7 dollars. Let me know if this helps and if it doesn't we will explore further options.
