Thanks for the solution but my 360 works perfect with every game ACCEPT for Grand Theft Auto 4. Do you suggest that i should just take my 360 and GTA4 to Best Buy to have it checked?

There is a little washer that comes off of the top of the spindel that spins the cd and it gets stuck to the top of the case if your waranty is up then you can just open the case and glue it back on.

I need help xbox 360 black screen


OK, I think I can slove your problem.

There is a slide setting thing on your av cord that gives you the option of using TV or HDTV (look near the end of the cord that slides into the XBOX 360), You will see two choices for settings on the cord "TV" or "HDTV".
Just make sure that you have it on the correct setting. I had the smae problem. My XBOX 360 is not hooked up to HDTV, so for me it should stay on TV. But somehow when I took out the cord I accidently slide it to HDTV.

I simply slide it back to the "TV" Setting and in about 30 seconds it worked perfectly.

I hope this helps you.

DONT BUY GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 FOR THE XBOX 360!!!!!


Hi,

Best advice is to contact Rockstar, they might have had simular complaints about the game, the proof is in the pudding though, basically proving that it was the game that destroyed itself and not a defective console that did it, it also contacting MS to see if they had complaints.
From what you are though, it sounds like the laser is being told to get to close to the disc, causing the grinding noise and the groove in the disc.

Let know how you get on.

Cheers

Doesnt read discs correctly...


I am almost 100% certain that the warranties of xbox 360 consoles have been extended 3 years.

I also had this problem some months ago, and Im sorry to say that I was told the problem is in the hardware. I had to send my xbox in, and they sent me a brand new one, fully covered under warranty.

Give xbox a call... 1-800-4MY-XBOX, ask about the warranty of your system, and also let them know your problem.
The only way I ever got any games to work with this problem, was to open and close the tray over and over until it finally worked, so I finally just sent it in. Good luck.

Xbox 360 gta4 game


I had this problem with gta 4 on the 360. You need to clean out the cache on the hard drive. Go to system settings tab. Select memory. then hard drive. press y. then press x,x, Lb, Rb, x, x. then say yes. worked for me.

Loud grinding, spinning noise with game in console.


Even if it is still playing dvds it might be the dvd-rom drive, usally it spins a game faster than a dvd. Or it could be the harddrive if it was trying to save something. try to download a demo or something to check the hard drive.
