Honestly, the only thing that is supposed to mean is that a controller is connected, but other that that, im not sure.

When I play Black ops it loads but never goes past the black screen after you press play game. I have an Xbox 360 white and I'm wondering is that the problem. When i took it to my uncles 360 it worked...


I have never heard this issue before. You probably have a lager issue then what can be resolved here and might face future issue in the future. Is this the only game you are having issues with?

Seeing that you mentioned you have purchased a hard drive then I would recommend you install the game to your hard drive and try play after that. This will resolve any issues possably of your disk drive possably getting hung up during gameplay.

follow these instructions to get your game installed on your hard drive:

Install Xbox 360 games on your hard drive from a game disc Note Installing an Xbox 360 game on a hard drive requires between 4 and 8 gigabytes (GB) of free disc space.
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

    Note After you insert the disc, the default option is to automatically start the game. If the game starts, exit the game, and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

  2. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox.
  3. Select the game you want to install.
  4. Press Y on your controller.
  5. Select Install to Hard Drive.

    A progress indicator appears while your game is being installed on your hard drive.
Notes
  • Installing an Xbox 360 game might take several minutes.
  • Multidisc game? Install each disc to your hard drive.

Makes sound like game is hitting something


If the games are not getting damaged this is normal xbox 360 dvd drive noise, the best thing to do is save game to hard drive, you will still need to have the game loaded but it does not spin which eliminates all the noise all you will hear is a slight buzz from the fans.
Let us know if this solution worked for you.

My xbox 360 turns on, no audio or video


Sounds like the Graphic processor needs to be reflowed and new thermal compound (artic silver 5) installed. Its basically the same problem as the RROD just without the lights.

Bought a Replacement Samsung TS-H943 DVD-ROM Drive for Xbox 360


Hello. The pcb board is "married" to the motherboard with a certain firmware. If you didn't flash the new drive with the correct firmware it will not work. The best thing to do is just replace the laser if you have DVD drive problems. I hope you still have the old one! Good luck to you. Thanks!

DISK DRIVE PROBLEM


Sounds like it is not reading the disk, make sure it is clean. Can you hear it trying to spin?

I hope you didn't push too ******* the door, you can make it jump a tooth on the loading gear making it go out of time. Check here for more solutions http://fix-your-xbox-360.blogspot.com/

You cant replace the drive they are locked to the motherboard!( wont work on other motherboards) Well you could spoof it to think that the new drive is the original. This is not easy stuff to do 1 mess up and you have yourself a 400.00 paper weight or a bricked drive.

 

You could open it up and try the rubber band trick, that's for modded boxes that are having trouble reading certain media types"discs".

 

Remember if you open your 360 you void the warranty.
