If the case had not been opened MS would repair the unit, it has means they will not.
The drives in Xbox360s need cleaning often as the limited air cooling draws air directly into the drive, with all the dust that entails. Blow the drive clean with a low pressure air source, we use a vaccuum cleaner blow nozzle with a piece of fishtank pipe to make a nozzle small enough to fit in the drive. If you have had the unit apart, check the seating on the connectors, once you get it working, do not sit the drive on a carpeted floor, stand it on end when using it on a hard surface

My xbox360 reads dvds but not games. when i put a game in, it goes to a white screen with the xbox logo


This error is caused by not having the original DVD drive in your 360. Only a professional can change your DVD drive successfully. You will need the original DVD drive to fix this problem. Without the original drive your Xbox won't be playing disc based games again. A skilled professional with the original DVD drive should be able to fix your problem.

Make sure discs are not scratched. Try cleaning the discs using rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth.

Disc wont read


Hi

Are you using a modded Xbox 360 console?, if not then the disc you are trying to play is probably a copied Xbox 360 disc which would not work on an original Xbox 360

Check the region code on the disc. There should be a code around the inside ring of the disc.
