Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

I put DVDs inside of my 360, but it shrinks the screen.

This started a week ago, I woke up, put a DVD inside of my 360 and the movie wouldn't be like, full screen on my HDTV. It would only play as a little box in the center of my screen. Can anyone help?

I can't play a movie


What kind of console do you have?

And what kind of disc do you have?

If it's a PS3 it can play regular DVDs and BluRay discs.

If you have an XBOX 360 you should be able to play movies on DVDs or HD DVD.

If you have a Nintendo Wii then it can't play any kind of movie unless you unlock (mod) it. Use a guide to do that like this one.

Xbox 360 wont play certain new release dvds.all else ok.whats up?


This is 99% always the case when your dvd drive is going out. You can find a replacement on ebay for under $15. Video tutorials can be found on youtube just by typing "xbox 360 laser replacement" Replace the laser and you won't have this problem anymore.

Make sure discs are not scratched. Try cleaning the discs using rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth.

Disk wont spin?


If its still under warranty, and the seal hasn't been cracked, contact Microsoft.

Try what hijackthis1 suggested, if that doesn't fix it, try this.

Since you have the 360 apart, and the top cover off of the dvd drive, here we go...

There's a circular cut-out that's glued to the top cover that you removed from the dvd drive, right below the sticker with all of the drive information. I was able to pop out the cut-out. After that you now have (3) pieces in your hand, the cover, cut-out, and a plastic piece.

Connected the dvd drive back in the 360 with the top cover off.

Put a game or movie in the drive, don't hit the eject botton, just put the disc in the tray.

Now with the disc in the tray, put the plastic piece in the center of the disc. Its magnetic, so it should kind of lock in to place.

Connect the power/av cords in the 360 and turn her on.

You should see the disc try to spin. (It may spin once or a couple times around, but it will stop). When you see the disc start to spin, GENTLE, spin/turn the disc in the direction in wants to go. It should load the game or dvd with no problems.

Reassemble the cover and put back on the dvd drive.

Now use the eject botton, and try games and dvds.

If disc fails to spin, do process over again.

I've done this with one of my 360's with no problems.
The drive I used was an Hitachi 0059DJ.
