Outer Edge Cut Off when Playing XBOX

For some reason when I'm playing XBOX 360 (hooked up to component 2) the outer inch and a half or so gets cut off. It's like the screen is zoomed in. I looked in the menu options, and when I try to change it from wide screen, to something else, it says not available. Please help!!! Thank you

    I had the same problem and a technician came in and fixed it using the TV menus when I wasn't home so I told my wife to ask him how did he do it but he wouldn't tell her since it's a "secrets of the trade" :(



    Anyways the problem returned again a week later when I plugged my PS3 and now I need to solve it again!



    Can anyone help?

    It's definitly not something with the hardware since he fixed it on the spot using the menus

I think your video drum needs replacement. You can get replacements for your brand of Combo on the Internet.

Why will my xbox let me play some games but not other on live when i used to be able to play them all?


Check all X Box games for scratches on the surface of each CD Disk.
Keep in mind, each game CD is read by lens Laser from the inner then to the outer edge of CD Disk.

Most people believe CD's are played like a record, from the outer edge to the inner.

If there are scratches, CD may be damaged beyond simply cleaning.
All cleaners and methods of cleaning are not the same.

Contact the manufacture of the CD to find out the best method of cleaning
or possibly repairing so game can be played.

If you CAN play some games and NOT others, this rules out a Laser Lens Player fault condition. Look for a reason of the CD will not play in the Laser Lens Player.

Here is the top 5 reasons CD's will NOT play.

1.) CD in inserted into player wrong way?.
2.) CD surface is dirty or dusty?.
3.) CD is possibly warped or bent?.
4.) CD surface is scratched?.
5.) Wrong CD/ or format for CD player?.
Hope this lists helps!

The console locks up and puts a round circular scratch around the outer most edge of the game disc..... its does this every now and again but it is runing olot of games throughout the year......can you...


The Xbox 360 doesn't have a mechanism to hold the disk securely in place. If you tilt or move your console while a game is playing it can potentially fall out of place and get scratched while it is being read. I recommend not bumping or moving your 360 while a game or DVD is playing.

Hope this helps!

Bought a new modern warfare 2 and after playing it for 1 day there was an error message to clean the disk. I returned the disk and got another one and now after playing it for 1 week I am getting the same...


i agree with rich.but there could be a bigger problem in side. Did u check ur game for the enternal ring along the outer edge. i have had no problems with mwf2 but my x box ate up my ufc game out of nowhere left it with the ring . i got a new one and farther down the road it did it again. so i wasted 120 bucks on ufc and my xbox messed them up i never move my xbox so it could be that and i keep my system fairly dust free idk.

White stripes on tv screen


Could be either really, you are using the component cables that came with the console correct? The lines look identical on both screens? If so then you are on the right track but I would lean towards the xbox360 being the culprit. I would bring your 360 into a local video game store and nicely ask them if they could hook it up to one of their TVs (they have them to test consoles people trade in), with their component cables and see if they have the problem as well. If they do you know it's the xbox and not the cables, if they don't then it sounds like you have a cable problem.

1). Remove the five screws from top half of cassette shell. If the cassette shell halves are glued together, very carefully split the shell with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Maneuver the screwdriver around the shell to break its seal. Avoid getting cut or damaging internal components of cassette.
2).Carefully lift off the top half of the cassette shell.
3). Pull the head if the tape from the left reel.
4). cut-off the damaged edge, and attached a peice of sctoth tape to the shining side of the tape, and leave about 1/2 inches of scotch tape beyond the head of the recording tape.
5). trim the sctoch tape using single edge of the sctoch tape razor or X-Acto knife to the same width as the recording tape.
6). carefully insert and tape the head of the recording tape to the right reel. and manually wind the tape till the recoding tape is flat to the front of the recoding pad.
7). carefully close the top shell, make sure not to pinch the tape. use your finguer trun the right reel, make sure the tape winds freely.
8). secured the top with screws.
