Not reading any of the discs just keeps saying reading and then open tray

Hello there

From what you have said I can tell you that you have the DISK READ ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a Xbox 360 Repair Guide, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

The other solution would be to send the console off to Microsoft, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $100

Glad I could Help!

Good Luck & Best Regards

Red ring at start up how dew i fix it

If you have the red light at start up here is how you can tell what is wrong with the system:

1 red light: This is the scaler or display chip you will need to get this repaired - see below.

Sometimes you will get an "E" Error message as well.

2 red lights - Pure and simple overheating, you will need to stop the heat build up in order to play your games again.

3 red lights - Most common error and happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and the soldering snaps off you will need to repair this.

4 red lights - Good news you just need to plug your AV cable into the back of the Xbox 360 and it will work for you.

To fix the 1 and 3 red light you will need to send it in and they will fix it for you.

Or you can fix it yourself using a good Xbox 360 Repair guide, I hope this has helped you and if so place rate this so it can help others.

Error 4424 on xbox 360 with 3 red lights

No it doesn't mean the console is ****. This could be related to several different issues and hasn't necessarily been pinpointed to one problem in particular. Two of the most common problems are with the x-clamps and cold solder points.

The x-clamps could be putting too much pressure on certain parts of the board now from all the wear of constant heating and cooling. This can be fixed using the X-Clamp fix and is fairly easy with the right tools.

Cold solder points basically means that points in the solder holding the chips on have cracked from rapid heating and cooling. This can be fixed with the simple "towel trick".

I would suggest trying the towel trick first as it is free and the simplest. Next I would suggest the X-Clamp fix. You can find guides to all of these with a simple google search. If neither of these works then it may be time to call for a new xbox, as it usually goes downhill from there. Good Luck!

How much is it to fix an error 76 on a xbox 360

there is a simple fix you can do. Check out youtube on how to fix red ring of death. It is a procedure of overheating the unit to get the solder to reflow. If it works for you keep in mind the design of this unit is poor and designed to fail. Once you get it back to working you need to keep it out in the open and cool. Fans if necessary.

Unfortunately this is a version of the red ring of death, its just that the red rings don't appear. Normal RROD is solder separating from the ram, so the motherboard doesn't read the ram on startup thus giving the error code. No video but sound problem is also solder issue, there is no connection to the video card to the video plug thus giving no video. Best thing is to call 1-800-4-my-xbox and see if they will fix it, if their assholes and want to charge you, there are lots of tutorials on youtube about taking apart the xbox and using heat guns to reconnect the solder points. Last thing, if considering the towel trick, beaware it can actually do more harm than good.

Sound but no screen

ok, try going through all the different video cables till one works, same as the ps3 you have to go into the setting and tell the 360 what type of video setting you want to use, once you find the one that is active then you can go into the setting and change it around - if you have already tried this then the video processor is fried and you need a tek to fix,

My x box 360 won't work

You have the RROD (red ring of death). Luckily it is now covered by microsoft warranty so call them up and send it back to be fixed. Alternatively, if for some reason you have no warranty (bought it used, warranty expired) I have heard there is a method to try and fix it by wrapping the 360 in a towel and leaving it on for like 5 or 6 hours. Some people have had success, others just made it worse. You may want to google it to find better instructions as I have never tried it. The most common cause of the rrod is that it overheats and part of the motherboad between the gpu and the cpu warps and they lose connection. So somehow by blocking the vents with a towel and leaving it running it reconnects these joints. However I have heard that it is likely to get the problem again after trying this method, so just send it to microsoft if you can.
