Three red lights means your 360 is dying.
Hopefully it's still under warranty - and keep in mind that Microsoft extended the warranty for the 3 red light issue to 3 years, instead of just one. So if you bought it within the last 3 years, just call Xbox customer service at 1-800-4MY-XBOX. Be prepared to be on hold for a while. I believe you can also do this online.
They will send you a box and packing instructions, and they even pay for the shipping. Once you send it, you should get it back in about 2 weeks (or more likely a new 360).

I put in my portal 2 game disc and the ads show then it lods perfectly fine then all of a sudden BOOM! the screen goes green and fuzzy. I can still see the words and everythings but the backgrounds fuzzy!...


If you have scratches on the disk take it into a video game store or a movie store and get it resurfaced this should help ushally costs about $4 or so to have done. Take it to a Play N Trade Video Games store if one is around and they would be able to test it out for you as well.

If this does not help then it could be the machine itself but if you have had no other issueswith any of the games the disc repair should help.

My xbox 360 is having problems starting up and reading disc


Game Discs will not start automatically. You must start disc games from the Disc
Channel on the Wii Menu screen.
Eject the Game Disc, and turn the power OFF and then ON. Reinsert the disc and try
playing the game again.Check to be sure that the Game Disc is clean and in good condition. If dirty, wipe with a soft cloth, from the center to the outside. Do not wipe with a circular motion.
You can also try using the Wii Lens Cleaning Kit (sold separately) to clean the
internal lens.

If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

Why does the Cannot play this disc. statement appear every


If it is just a few random discs the problem is with the individual disc. Either a corrupted (dirty) disc, an unrecognizable format such as a BluRay, DVD-RW, or PAL Disc (out of region).
