It's possible that the xbox was hacked, and the dashboard files are missing (so you can't get passed the xbox trademark logo) or the DVD drive has gone bad.

My 360 will not turn on. The power light on the adaptor is red. It stopped and came back a week ago but the power adaptor was making a weird whirring noise. Is it the Console or the power adaptor?

It has a new scratch that happened when i pulled my controler by

When you pulled the controller, and the Xbox made the "weird noise" it was probably caused by the game sliding out of the tray. This can happen when a disk is spinning in the console and the console suddenly jerks in any direction.

My Xbox 360 keeps saying Disc is Unreadable for all of my games. Two days ago my console was running perfectly. I purchased this one about a month ago, my other 2 I had both red ringed. I really don't want...

It is just the sensors on the back of the drive overheating to fix it you need to stop the heat build up, you should use a good guide to do this or send it in to have it fixed.

Open tray not reading disc

Is it giving you the error, "can not read the disk?" or, is it trying to read it, make weird grunting noises and then doing nothing.

If you have a warranty, get them to look at it. Mine expired about 2 months ago and I was quoted 90 dollars to get it fixed. With the recent drop in xbox 360 prices, you can probably get a used xbox arcade for a bit more. It's your call.

You can research on different methods to get the DVD reader working again, but they all involve taking the disk drive apart and rigging it in a way that it works again. If I am sure you could introduce even more damage to the laser head if you mess with it enough. I suggest either coughing up the money for MS to fix, or buy an Xbox Arcade refurbished w/ warranty.

Hope this helps,

Xbox 360 not working

Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX if you see red rings around the power light.  If you just bought it 7 months ago, it is still under warranty.  Do not use one of the custom shops who say they will fix the red ring errors as this will void your warranty with Microsoft.

Weird lines and shapes when playing Grand theft auto 4

I have the basic 360 that came with nothing. Um this actually did happen with me a few times when I first bought the game. Exept my problem was a little different. 30 or so minutes into playing the game it would come over the side the game was unreadable or dirty. I had just bought the thing from wal-mart so I knew it was neighter. I just went out and bought one from game stop. Game stop seems like the best place to buy games anymore.
