Curiosity killed a cat. If you saved your receipt you should put everything back in the box and ask for an exchange. Tell them it came that way and they should replace it. Next time keep your fingers where they don't belong.

Xbox 360s makes a weird sound when it reads a disc and shuts down

Sounds like the drive is very dirty, or going out. Try cleaning it, or just replace it.

How to completely dissasemble an Xbox 360

BEFORE YOU READ THIS TIP: Opening an Xbox 360 console will void any type of warranty you may have. and I are not responsible for any damages you may inflict on your Xbox 360 console.

The tools you will need:

1. A clean, flat working surface


2. Xbox 360 Opening tool

This isn't 100% necessary. But it makes things a whole lot easier. They're about $5 on Ebay.

3. A Torx 8 and a Torx 10 screwdriver/bit

4. A flathead screwdriver

5. A flathead precision screwdriver

6. And of course, an Xbox 360

Removing the Xbox 360 case

1. First, remove the Xbox 360 faceplate. On the bottom of the Xbox, (right side if your Xbox is horizontal), towards the front, you will see a little notch.

Slide a fingernail in there and gently pull up.

The faceplate should come off with minimal force.

2. Next, you must remove the grey grills on both the top and bottom of the Xbox. (Right and left if your Xbox is horizontal). First, lets remove the top one. (The one the hard drive plugs into). If you look through the little exhaust holes near the top of the Xbox, you will see 3 little tabs on each side holding the grill in place.

Each tab must me unhooked by poking it with a screw driver. The ones towards the front are a little difficult. There are 2 gaps in the top grill that you must slide the screw driver into.

Get the screw driver in between the tab and the white outer case and gently pull the tab away. Towards the other side. At the same time, pull the grill up to unhook the tab. Do the same for the opposite side.

The other 4 tabs, (2 on each side), are much easier. Simply poke the screwdriver through the exhaust holes to push the tabs away from the hooks. Gently pull up on the grill at the same time.

One tab will be covered by a little rubber footie. Just pry the footie up with a finger nail to expose a hole. Poke the screwdriver through that hole.

After you've unhooked all 6 tabs, the grill should easily lift off the Xbox.

Now, for the other grill on the bottom do the same thing. Again, there are 3 tabs on each side. These tabs just have to be poked through the exhaust holes. No need to remove any rubber footie.

3. Now that both grills are off, it's time to remove the main case. If you look on the back of the Xbox, you will see a total of 7 slots. 5 on the right, and 2 on the left.

Take your Xbox 360 opening tool and slide 5 tabs on the right into the 5 slots on the right of the Xbox.

Push with your thumbs to release the locks holding the 2 halves together.

Now do the same with the left side. Only this time, use the side of the opening tool that has the 2 tabs.

*NOTE: The above can also be accomplished without the opening tool. Use a small, flat head precision screwdriver. With one hand push the 2 halves away from each other while carefully sliding the screwdriver into each slot individually.


Now look on the front of the Xbox and you will see 4 locks.

Simply slide a flathead screwdriver under the tab to release each lock. Being careful not to snap off the tabs.

Now lay the Xbox upside down and pull the bottom half of the case off.

To get the top half of the case off, you must use your Torx 10 screwdriver/bit and remove these 6 screws:

Then look on the front of the Xbox at the eject button. Pull the eject button off by grabbing it towards the middle and pulling straight out.

Now, CAREFULLY flip the Xbox back over so its right-side-up and pull off the top half of the case.

Removing the DVD Drive:

1. Removing the DVD drive is quite easy. Simply unplug both cables from the back of the drive. And carefully lift the drive straight out.

Removing the Fan Shroud:

1. Removing the fan shroud is also very simple. Just use a small flathead screwdriver to pry open the clip connecting it to the fan. Then lift it straight out.

Removing the fan:

1. first, you must unplug the fan.

2. To actually remove the fan you must lift up on the upper metal lip and tip the fan out.

3. Now, being very careful of the tall capacitors in front of the fan, pull the fan out.

Removing the RF Module:

1. First you must pop off the plastic cover. Do this by using your fingers and pulling the top part off the circuit board. Be very careful.

2. Now remove all 3 screws with your Torx 8 Screwdriver.

3. Now carefully pull the RF Module straight out.

Removing the Motherboard:

The Motherboard is the main component of an Xbox 360. Be very careful!

1. Flip the Xbox upside down and take out the remaining screws. There should be 8 small black screws in the middle and 10 brass screws. The black ones use Torx 8 and the brass ones use Torx 10.

2. Now slide your fingers into the DVD drive slot and keep the motherboard from moving while you flip the Xbox back over.

3. Now carefully grab the taller heatsink and pull the mother board out by tipping the front out first, then the back.

4. Place the motherboard down carefully.

Congratulations! Your Xbox 360 is now full disassembled!

I have a tevion steering wheel (5 years old not used yet) can I connect it to my xbox 360 elite. the connection leads have 4 plugs one for GC, one for Play station 1/2 , one for pc(usb) and one for Xbox....

Sorry to be the one to break this to you mate, but the Tevion steering wheel is only compatible with the following;
  • Game Cube
  • Playstation 1
  • Playstation 2
  • PC
  • Original Xbox
Now I can not guarantee this will work, but before you give up completely, Try Using the USB plug for the PC in one of the USB ports for the xbox 360 elite. They are located to the right of the front if you have your xbox 360 elite lying down flat, under a small flap. I use a Keyboard intented for a computer with my xbox 360 S in the same manner, so hopefully that will work.

make sure the games are free of finger prints or debris. if there are large scratches on either side of the game you xbox may not be able to read the disc. if you have an older xbox it may be that its just dying and the lens is going out. when xbox first came out they had a 50% failure rate over one year, so it may be that. if its within two years of the date of purchase, then your warranty should still be good and xbox will fix it.

My xbox 360 arcade system will not allow me to play origonal xbox games even with an xbox 360 hard drive attached

Okay, the Xbox 360 isn't reverse compatable, meaning you can't play regular xbox 360 games on it. The only version that is reverse compatable is the Xbox 360 Elite. SOrry :(

How do i link the pelican remote to the xbox 360?

There should be several USB ports on your 360. There should be one in the back and two in the front lower part of the console. It is hidden beneath a small flap you can push in with your fingers and slide the cable into the usb

Xbox 360 elite 1 red light

When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.
If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.
The number for Microsoft is usually listed on the back of any game manual.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and Happy Gaming!

Xbox 360 elite, call of duty 4 fault

Hi Jake,
Yhe only thing noticable here, is that the 360 elite has the 60 gig hard-drive instead of the Standard 20 gig, as fitted with the white 360. perhaps you might be able to try a 20 gig hard-drive on the box. May work, worth a shot. i,d also check microsofts site, for any game updates or patches for the game itself.

hope this helps ya buddy.

p.s plenty of people would be willing to trade your elite for a standard white 360. this would be another alternative.

Mike @ Compurepair.
