I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it


You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

Xbox 360 won't play new game - screen flickering on the 'press start' screen. plays cd's perfectly and was ok with games till put in new game from Morrisons.


old or new generation model? it might just need a good cleaning with one of those dvd cleaner cds you can buy. I have a game in general "home front" that sounds like my box is gonna blast off.

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

Xbox 360 games not reading disk


probably bad drive. since you opened, you cannot have fixed unless you pay up. my advice, go online and search for the EXACT same dvd drive and order it. then search a video on youtube on how to replace it. replacement drive should run you about 30-40 bucks depending on brand and where you get it.

That's weird, if the Xbox needs a driver it should be installed or come on a Cd.

So the games don't play ?

Call support and threaten that you'll bring it back, it'll get them to help better.

Try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive, and make sure the game cd does not have scratches.
