Accidentally knocked console over. Console works OK but game in it at time doesn't. It starts up OK but gets stuck after 3 mins with message disk unreadable. Wiped it with cloth but makes no difference. Is there anything else to try?

Look VERY closely at your disk. i'll bet you have a prime example of a circle scratch somewhere on that disk.

    Dude, why would you give me a low rating like that? You have a circle scratch. Get the disk resurfaced, and if the scratch wasn't TOO bad, then it will work.

Ps3 shutdown when was in middle of game now wont turn bk on nd game stuck

First you need to check some things:

1. Check that ALL the cables are properly plugged in. Maybe someone accidentally took the PS3 out of it's socket.
2. If all the cables are OK leave the console for about an hour to cool off. Maybe it's overheating
3. If your console turns back on but then after some play time turns off again you have an overheating problem and you need to send it to Sony so they can fix it. Make sure you have a warranty otherwise it's going to cost you lots.
4. If it doesn't turn on at all you definitely need to send it to Sony so they can fix it.

I would very much like to know if your console DOES turn on but has RED or YELLOW lights bleeping. That would help me.

I would like to know if this has helped you too!

We turn the console on and start playing....but after 5 or 10 min the console showes a black screen with this message on: this disk cannot be read please reffer to your operations manual.

Hello :

1:This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.
2:If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.
3:Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.
4:If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
5:If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

Contact if that didn't help please !

rate if useful please !

best regards .

Assassin's Creed 2 won't load on Xbox 360

Sounds like your cd drive is not reading the discs properly. If that's not the problem, then you have a scratched disc on your hands.

Do what I did. Go to and sell your scratched/non-working game to them. They will give you good money for it.

Cannot read disk error

Heres what you need to do:
1.Call 1800-4myxbox see if your still under warranty.
2.If you like, I do not think its nessary, get them to replace your current 360.

What 95% of the time causes the 360 to damage teh disk is when your system is *VERTICAL* (up and down) or if you move the console while your playing it, or if the console got knocked over while a game is playing.

From now on put the console horizontal, this will prevent the scratching of games.
