Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Just got an XBOX 360 for free off someone because the discs weren't gripping, and vibrating.
Follow the guide http://www.fixya.com/support/r160745-apart_xbox_360 and stop after step 12
The drive I have is an LG made in October 2006... so this might be different to yours... There are 6 screws on the drive, 4 at the side, and 2 in the middle... take these out and take off the top panel
You'll probably see a magnet stuck to the top of the round weight on top of the plate... this shouldn't be there and it should be on the spindle in the mechanical part of the drive itself! (The shear force of the drive manages to easily rip the magnet from the main part of the drive... so i just used some superglue to put this magnet back in place...
Put everything back together, and now I have a working Xbox!
