Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

The console starts up fine everthing runs fine apart from the disk drive. I have taken apart the disk drive and put it back together, tried cleaning the lens and rails, all that happens is the disk sins up for 5 turns and then stops. I did the tweak not sure what to the laser, wherre it turns the power up? Now the laser does not light up? The disk however still attempts to spin up. Does theis mean the drive is bricked and cannot be fixed?

I start it up and then it goes strait to the browser/ system configuration


It is not recognizing the game disc. Try cleaning the disc and the disc drive.

To clean the disc, you can use water with a bit of dish soap if it is dirty. If it is scratched, you can try using a bit of car polish (apply, let dry and buff clean). Wash with water and dry completely before putting it back in the PS2.

Or try a disc you never use (e.g. Grand Tourismo).

To clean the disk drive, you can spray some "canned air" into it to see if you can knock the dust away from the laser/reader. DO NOT turn the can upside down when you spray. You will get liquid propellent inside the PS2 and that gets VERY cold when it evaporates. so cold that any humidity in the air will condense in your PS2 and it will surely not work for a while (even if you clean the disk).

If you are really adventurous, you can take the feet off the PS2 and then remove the screws and open everything up to do a good cleaning (it probably needs it - PS2 can be almost 10 years old!). Dont be afraid to take it apart - just use a digital camera to photo every step so you know how to put it back together.

good luck. Please rate me.

Do i fix the tray that wont open on my xbox 360


Either you have something sticky spilled on your unit, or you may have to replace the motor for the disc tray. Also take note if the tray is even attempting to open at all. If so, it might just need to be cleaned.

My console wont read my disk


I had this same problem and i fixed it sucessfully. If your warrenty is still good obviously send it in and get a free new one. If that is not a choice this is what you gota do:
The problem may be one of two things:
First, many people had some magnet fly off their dvd drive, while your doing this repair and you notice some black thing stuck to the top of your DVD drive when you take the DVD drive apart, go on youtube and look how to fix it from there.
If not follow my instructions...if you don't know how to do a certain step, again search it on youtube there are many videos on how to do all of this stuff.


1. Take apart your 360 but leave the motherboard in the metal case (no need to remove it or unscrew all the screws)
2. Remove the DVD drive.
3. Open the DVD drive taking both metal panels off.
4. This is tricky. You need to remove the motor, there are 3 tiny screws, you can disconnect the little cable if you like but i wouldn't recommend it because it is very fragile.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE! TWO OF THESE SCREWS ARE SPRING LOADED AND CONTROL THE HEIGHT THAT THE DISC IS TO THE LASER. MARK THEM WITH A MARKER ON THE SCREW AND RIGHT NEXT TO IT SO YOU CAN LINE IT UP WHEN YOUR PUTTING IT BACK TOGETHER, OR YOUR GOING TO SPEND HOURS TRYING TO GUESS THE RIGHT HEIGHT! COUNT THE NUMBER OF TURNS IT TAKES TO GET IT OFF THIS IS IMPORANT DO NOT OVERLOOK THIS! THE WRONG HEIGHT WILL MAKE THE LASER NOT READ YOUR DISC!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Take apart the motor by simply pulling the top off, many people seem to have trouble with this but it just pops off with a little twisting.
6. Get a Q-Tip and remove all that black gunk you see untill its spankin clean.
7. You gona need some lube. I used some gun metal lube whatever works, some had sucess with WD-40 but i don't recommend it. Lube that ****** up and put the motor back together.
8. Put the motor back in and screw in the 3 screws being sure to get the spring loaded ones the right tightness.
9. Piece of cake, put the DVD drive all the way back together (this is important) and connect the wires and place it back in the 360.
10. Plug everything in and try a game before putting the god forsaken case back together.
11. If it works, congradulations, if it doesn't, you got the height wrong.
12. Put everything back together, play some xbox. You deserve it.
IF HEIGHT IS WRONG: take the dvd drive out and panels off again and tighten or losen the spring loaded screws a tiny bit. Go in increments of 90 degrees, this took me hours but i finally got it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: THE DVD METAL CASEING MUST BE ON TO TRY A GAME!!! I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT IT WONT WORK UNLESS ITS ON.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.

PS2 Power problem


Check the power supply.Use a multimeter if you have any voltage coming out from the power supply.
If the power supply is good Check the main fuse on the motherboard.There is a white ceramic fuse on the motherboard and sometimes get Bad.
