The xbox is overheating when the cpu gets under a high workload, i.e. when playing games, you will need to reseat the heatsinks with new thermal paste, take it to a local repair man to fix unless your still under warranty then send it back to microsoft

Will play movies but not games, had red ring of death but fixed that and now it only plays movies not games


Sounds like a DVD Drive is bad. Note you cannot just replace the old dvd drive with a new one, you need to take the key from the old drive and then place it onto the new drive so it will work. all xbox 360 drives have a security key. If you still have your old drive then you may be ok and it may be that a technician can do the work for you.

Xbox 360 RED RINGS???


Hey,

First off 3/4 red rings is not ok, that's what I had with mine about 3 months ago and it was a general hardware failure resulting in me sending it to Microsoft for repair. The problem is if you send it to them and it works as you said it does sometimes they will do nothing and just send it back to you in the same state. It's a fault with the mother board where the solder on the components gets too hot and then starts eroding the thermal paste on the components like the graphics card and the processor etc.

I would wait for a while until it literally won't even boot onto the dashboard (as I did) and then do everything online at www.xbox.com/support as that's the most hassle free option.
