my xbox keep sayong it cant read disks !!!! i even put a new CD in there!! i'm going crazy .....( i think the **** is up to this) what should i do!!!!!!!!!!
If your xbox wont read the disc, it just says open tray, there is a very simple solution i discovered. You dont need to do anything complicated or fancy, simply make sure everytime you turn your xbox off the disc is out. Turn your xbox on without a disc in, let it get to your profile screen, then put the disc in. Works every time.

Are you sure it's a PL-2073? or is it maybe a PL-2047? If it is, here the manual for the PL-2047.

you should be able to either call xbox or email them the problem and they will be able to help you, you just bought the 3 month subscription I believe and if it isn't working, then it is there problem, that you need them to fix, maybe give you a different code

power button doesnt work....have to use eject button and that is sketchy at best.....
A common problem caused by corroded traces on the motherboard.
Easy to fix with a few jumper wires.

my brand new xbox flashed green light 3 times and started flashing red and green and there is no display on the screen what could be the problem?
Posted by kedi on
You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.

This solution assumes you never had a gamertag for your original xbox (as was my case)
stuff you will need: xbox live subscription card, credit card, email address, xbox original connected to internet
Purchase subscription card from retailer (card will say for xbox360, this is fine...I used a 1 month card)
Get on your computer and go to xbox.com, near the top right corner it will say to sign in, do this so you can begin to create a gamertag
enter your email address and password and continue to setup your new gamertag( I don't recall specifics, however if you've set up an account before you know the routine: name, address, birthday etc..)
After you've created your gamertag, the name & picture you chose should be on the top of the page...click on your gamer name
This will take you to your account page...click on "Manage Profile"
After that, on the right will be an option "Redeem Code"
If you havent already, scratch off the silver on your pre-paid subscription card to reveal the code
The next screens will have you enter your credit card and billing info (do NOT skip; this is needed to recover this gamertag on the original xbox)
Enter the redemption code when prompted, this will associate an xbox live subscription with your gamertag
Once you have entered that info, go ahead and double check that your credit card info is saved under "Manage Payment Options"...if it isn't go ahead and re-enter your credit card info and save it
Make sure your xbox is connected to the internet, with no game inserted, power it on
Choose xbox live
Choose Account Recovery
Enter your gamertag, cardholder name, credit card number, & postal code EXACTLY as you did on xbox.com
if everything went correctly, you should be re-directed back to the "Select Account" screen on your xbox and your gamertag should now be selectable.
The instructions for navigating the xbox.com site are merely a guide, just know that you need to setup a gamertag and associate the xboxlive subscription & credit card info with that gamertag
Hope this helps
