Hi,

The console did not fully install an update from a disc that was put in, the best way to resolve this is to clear the cache and put in the latest game you have.

Go to the Xbox Dashboard, select the System Blade, and select Memory.
Highlight the HD symbol and press Y.
Press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X.

Note: Game saves, user profiles, demos, videos, music will not deleted during the process - But all game/console updates and error logs will be deleted.

After you have done this put the latest game in the console but DON'T close the tray instead just press the power button and let the console close the tray.

Now power on the console and click on the Game Disc and it should tell you that this game needs an update, just follow the directions.

Let me know how you get on.

Cheers

    No green light? Try plugging the cable into another outlet to make sure the cable is working properly. If you still do not see a green light, your cable needs to be replaced. Contact Xbox Support.
  5. Turn on the console.
If these solutions do not solve the problem, the sensor needs to be repaired. To start the online repair process, go to myservice.xbox.com.

I bought a new xbox with 250gb, when i turned it on it says please insert disc that came with device but it didn't come with a disc, I never heard of an xbox coming with a instalation disc, help PLEASE!


If you have a Kinect Sensor connected to the Xbox 360 S, turn off the console first and remove the Kinect Sensor. Then, restart the console and go through the initial set up. After the set up is complete, turn off the console and reconnect the Kinect Sensor. Restart the console and you will be prompted to insert the game disc that came with the device, which is Kinect Adventures. Insert the disc and it will update the console then go through the Kinect set up. Problem solved.

Inserted blue ray disc into cold ps3, now dead dead dead


Does it have a red light in front or nothing? If you don't have anything then your power supply has went out and you can pick one of those up for 40-50 dollars on eBay.
