Odd. when our xbox worked, if you turned it off with the tray open or closing, it would still shut. If the warranty is still in effect, get it to a repairman ASAP. if not, you (and maybe a couple friends) will need to fix it yourself. I'm betting a faulty solder connection at a transistor or relay at the power supply

I have an original xbox that will not turn on, like it doesn't have power going to it, yet when i plug my other orig. xbox in power comes on so i know it's not the cords. What might be the problem?


try to put the console itself into your refrigirator for 10-15 minutes. Get it out, plug and try it... Sometimes its the intern temperature sensor problem and he think the console is overheating. Try this .... Does a light come on when you try to start ???

My xbox Your Shape 2011 game isnt saving any progress any more


Hello,
This is acually a common problem for that game. The only suggestion I would take is to reload the game saves on your XBOX. To do this, you go to Settings-System-Storage-All Devices-Games and Apps-You Shape (press Y on the game instead of A)-Delete. Then, go back to the main menu and load up the game. It may take longer to load due to the original save file being deleted, but it will then record your save file. If you followed those suggestions and it still doesn't save, you may want to contact XBOX for troubleshooting ideas or Ubisoft.

Hope that helps. Good luck!!!

You might need an update from xbox live. If there is one available you'll have to delete any saved games and start fresh. The original release contains a glitch that the update should fix but if you keep playing on a saved game the glitch will persist.

I have never played XBox and have just been given an XBox original. I have hired a game from local shop, turned on Xbox put in disc, what do I do now to start to play


to play a game in the original xbox you just put the disc in and close the tray. They load automatically. For more information on how to use your newly obtained xbox original here is the user manual in PDF form you will need a pdf reader to open it such as adobe reader. click here for original xbox user manual. Im wondering since you say you just got a game from a local shop, Make sure it is an original xbox game. If you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. thanks, Midwest-tek

I turn my xbox 360 on and im able to play for 20


Is it one of the original 360s? If so, then either send it to Microsoft, pawn it off on some ******, or pitch it in the garbage.

5 minutes playing online keep giving me error message that the disk is dirty. i know it's not i played the same cd to another xbox console it's fine. what should i do or what's the problem...


Hi chrisastig
try to save the game you are playing to the hard drive so as to play from hard drive & not from the disk ! this is assuming you have enuf room on ur hard drive to copy the game to ??
You will still need to put the game in (even when playing from hard drive) but i find if its a game you play a lot its well worth doing as it saves on the disc drive/disc spinning whilst playing :-)
saves on overall usage of the xbox too !
If its ok reading the disc for the first 5 mins of usage it should be ok to copy to the hard drive to play from.
If there is a fault with the disc itself it will tell you when you try to copy it to the hard drive & if this is the case (& its a game you like/play a lot??) then try to borrow a copy just to put on ur hard drive only & use ur damaged disc as the 'required even if playing from hard drive' notification to the xbox that you do own the original copy !
Damaged discs are usually ok for 'playing from hard drive' as the information the xbox requires is very little but enuf for it to allow you to play the game (from the hard drive)
You will find it a lot quieter whilst playing anyway ! i think so !

hope this helps :-)

please remember thumbs up :-)

p.s. refer to ur xbox user manual or drop me a mail if you have any problems doing any of the above ??

My original xbox shuts itself off after 2 minutes of being on, what is the deal?


Its over heated and old so the mother board and the little rectangle thingy right next to it has overheated also but still chooses to turn on. Same problem to my first xbox 360. Turns out there are flaws. Its time for a new xbox. or just get this kind of gel that conducts heat and open your xbox and put it on

Xbox will not read any game or dvd


It sounds like your DVD drive has failed, this is fairly common. There is a good chance it is still under warranty from microsoft. Give them a call at:

800-4-My-Xbox

If it is not under warranty you can replace the dvd drive itself, google xbox 360 replacement parts. It's not too difficult if you are technically inclined.

Xbox says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.. only does this to 360 games originals work. i restored to factory setting but still same problem even with new games


There seems to be theory that if you hold down the A button whilst the game is trying to load it can solve the problem, but the honest truth is that your disk drive is dead or doomed. If it is saying this with every game disk, every time then you need to send it for repair. Contact support on 0800 587 1102
