If its a ps3/ps2 its a laser diode or the laser is dirty..
a laser costs 50$ on ebay which means you need to install it yourself..
you can buy the whole drive for 120$ which means you just pull the old one out and stick the new one in..
I suggest calling sony and see what they can do before you do anything

My left analog stick button won't work on my Xbox 360.


Try using the stick on the Xbox Dashboard. If this doesn't work, you need to use a different controller or attempt to repair your controller.

Every time I put a new game it's unreadable and doesn't work, but when I put a old xbox 360 games they work fine , for example my Red Dead redemption, which I have had for almost a year works fine , but...


well, the only thing that i can think of is that your old games work because you may have backeed them up to your HDD. For whatever reason, it is not reading any of the discs, but you can play the old games because the machine knows the correct disc is in the drive, and plays it straight form the hard drive. Note that this answer is based on the assumption you back your games up; you may need a new DVD drive.

My xbox 360 doesn't read discs . How do i make it work?


You can clean the lens eye and check , also try to use a different original CD, if not it is possible that the optical head of the drive is faulty.
You might have to change the unit if it works out reasonable.

Xbox 360 will not read discs


Try using different sorts of discs in the xbox, original xbox games, xbox 360 games, dvds, etc, and if nothing reads in the unit, you need to replace the laser assembly. But seeing how the unit is less than a year old, take it back to retailer or send to microsoft. Good Luck.

If you have the original X box CD's it will work fine expect when you have issues with region code.PAL NTSC are the two format a game can work with.so if you have NTSC formated game TRY a PAL version.it may work.
else clean your lens and try inserting a new CD of that GAME.

Xbox 360 wont work on my Tv now - always been fine before


Hi...

Make sure the switch on the 360 A/V cable is in the right position. Also unplug everything from the unit and plug it all back in again.
From the reading I've done on tech issues the 360 has a lot of temporary issues like that.

Won't Play Games, DVD and CD fine


I am guessing that when it was refurbished, it was because of a disc drive error... so i am about 90% sure that they didn't flash the disc drive and that would be their mistake. Disc Drives have their own memory and would still be able to play cd's and dvd's without problems... but if they are not flashed correctly through a sata computer with the correct hardware, they will not play games. My opinion is that you should contact the place which you bought it from, it's not your fault.
