Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Not reading cds.

I've had my xbox 360 for several months without a problem until 2 days ago. When I put in a game, it will try to load it and then a white screen comes up reading "to play this disc, put in an xbox360 console", and then has some chineese writing along with it. Alson when its not reading the disc ill take it out and try to clean it, but when i did that I noticed it had rings around it. So then i thought it might of been just an old disc but the 360 console wont even play my brand new game "rainbow 2 Las Vagas". PLZ what can i do?

Now.. if it's four red rings, check your component cables, unplug them, then plug them back in, if it's only three lights flashing with the top-right quadrant remaining idle, then there is a problem with your hard drive and you have to send it in for repairs.. but as far as the fact that it won't play any games, try to get a disc that will clean the eye of the console something like "Maxell" player cleaner, that usually works.. if that doesn't help.. sorry

Ok I had the same problem try this if this doesn't solve your problem call Microsoft.

First, Unplug everything including harddrive.

Next, Wait thirty seconds.

Then, Plug everything even harddrive.

Finally, Try it out see if it works. If it doesn't call Microsoft.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
