The dvd drives on these can be a problem, You could have a small belt in the drawer mechanism faulty. It means removing it out to check , if you replace the dvd drive though you must swap over the circuit board in the dvd drive your dvd drive because it is (keyed to the motherboard). The drawer runners could be sticking also, in need of some light oil.
Hope this helps

I put a game into my xbox 360 console and it still says open tray as if there isnt a game in there,what do i do to get it to read the game,that doesnt require me to pay money to fix,how to do it myself.

For some reason, it is not reading the game. Try spraying some air into the consule. Sometimes dust can cause it not to read the disc. If not, your looking at multiple things.

Trying to play nintendo on line. have a new wireless router/modem it is giving an error code of 52230 and says unable to connectg to server. any ideas?

Your nintendo consule without a technical malfunction should integrate to a network. The wii fii feature allows to network by wireless recognition of another consule on the network. The situation requires finding another consule owner to network with. Both consules would communicate by wii fii signals, only require recognising another consule owner that would allow device to device connectivity. keep in mind that, the error message is a computer message indicating a break in the link that could be created once another consule is recognised.

The error message would be intergrated into a network hub once each owner of the consule enable a feature on their device to accept communcation.

The wii fii feature only is advantage to the consule owner compared to connectivity that would have been performed by connection cables earlier in the invention of video gaming.

Find colleages with similar devices, inform them about wanting gaming network connectivity to allow possible network. keep in mind that, networking is a connection involvign entities where people are a requirement..

Your situation would be possible by human networking to make possible, device to device; that would only communicate when enabled features disabled.

I bought and Xbox 360 elite 120mb consule today from a pawn shop. I got home and the xbox consule seems to be working however when I put game disc in they dont play. It says they are reading the disc and...

Try to wash one of your disks with dishwashing soap, just one is enough to do the cleaning. Start mixing the disks when they dont work, this will clean the lens. i had the same problem, worked fine for me.

Red lights appear on consule what do i do


To clarify are you getting 4 red lights or 3 red lights

If it is 4 light then this is just a system error that you video is not connected right. If you have you AV and/or HDMI cable connected to the XBOX then most like you have a bad cable. If you have tried another cable then most likely then there is something wrong with the video connector on the system.

If it is 3 light then you have the "red ring of death" issue. This is a general hardware error. If you go through the red ring repair steps this would fix the issue.

Hope this helps

Disc stuck inside Wii Consule

Unplug everything from the system and the power cable from the wall or power strip, let it sit for about 5 minutes. Plug everything into the system first then the wall. Power should come on
