Hey Jay- There is a plastic disc that sits on the centre of the drive inside the box, this disc has a magnet in it that is supposed to hold the game cd in place. What's happened is the plastic has become dislodged from the computer drive and is not the magnet portion is stuck to the drive housing (also metal).

You need to open up the game console, remove the drive and the drive cover and get that plastic disc out of it's holding plate. Once out, you just reinsert the drive (without the cover) and set the disc on top of the game cd-give the game a spin or two with your fingers and it should start up....problem fixed

If you search on Youtube you can see a repair video for this. It takes time, and you have to tear apart the game to get at this puppy. I've since fixed mine and left the plastic game housing off as well, so as to get rid of the overheating problem.

Screw microsoft and their crappy manufacturers.

But, what u need to do, is when ur disc tray starts to close when there is a game in there, tap on the top of the xbox where the disc is. Dont tap too hard, just when its not working, try a little harder. If u dont believe me, type it in on youtube. Good luck mate :)

this problem is called the three rings of death...it usually means that the processor getting hot and cooling off from normal use has warped the motherboard. THIS IS UNDER WARRANTY SO DONT TRY TO FIX IT OR LET ANYONE ELSE. it is the only problem with the 360 that is under warranty for more than a year...it is warrantied for 3 years....call 1-800-FOR-MY-XBOX and get a new one for free!!!!

3 red lights


Hey meddman,

While this may be an indicator that something is still wrong with your XBox 360, there are a couple of steps that you can take before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your XBox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the XBox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem still persist, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free XBox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the XBox website:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
