20 Most Recent Microsoft Xbox 360 Console Questions & Answers


x360 and ps3 problems aren't really all that different if you're trying to come up with something. I would have to say that you should get yourself a rip like Nero 8 and convert it to data file. I think it's the best stuff out there and you'll be able to watch any movies you want. Check it out.

My Sons Xbox had sound but a blank screen. at first i thought it was the video leads.. Borrowed a set from his friend but still the same.. blank screen but sound. I thought about the towel trick but was wary.. so instead i went to a comp repair shop. He suggested the towel trick... he said it may or not work. So being out of warranty with nothing to lose , i gave it a go.
Remove your hard drive and video leads leave just the power lead attached. Wrap your xbox in three towels and switch it on for about 20mins (which i did). Switch it off (it may already have switched itself off ! leave it to cool for about 15 mins and then plug everything back in . I was amazed to find my sons xbox up and running agian. Hope it works for you !! It did for me and i still can't belive it!

the towel trick is def only temp. i called xbox and they want 100$ to fix it. I am going to either threaten to call bbb ( better business burough) of actually file a report if they won't do anything about their faulty hardware. I think that everyone else should do the same.

2 red lights mean its getting overheated i noticed this was happening 2 mine whilst i was playing halo 3 so every 30 - 40 mins i saved and quited and placed a fan infront of the back pannel for about 5 - 10 mins this cooled it down and could be played for longer without thret of over heating

p.s saveing and quiting can be frustrating every 30 mins so do it after that level 30 mins through. :)

Wow, so many replies!

The open tray issue is normally linked to the laser itself. You do NOT have to replace the entire drive, as doing so may cause you further problems.

If your 360 is under warranty, send it in to be replaced.

If not, then there are things to try!

Open the console (using the various online tutorials) and remove the DVD-ROM drive. Open the drive and you'll have access to the laser. Get a Q-tip (cotton bud) and moisten one end with some boiled water. Rub gently over the lens of the laser, then use the other end to dry. Try the game again.

If the above doesn't work, purchase another drive assembly, matching what you already have. You could just buy the laser, but there's no point if it's something other than the laser (and you get one with a new drive). If you have a Hitachi drive, make sure you buy a Hitachi. The same with a Toshiba-Samsung. Keep the same drive type. New drives can be purchased from Ebay. For Toshiba Samsung's, either the MS25 or MS28 will be fine as the insides are exact. Hitachi's are likewise: any version will do.

Here's the good part: you don't need to mess with the firmware on your drive, since the problem is mechanical. Carefully remove the DVD logic board from your faulty drive (the circuit board inside the DVD-ROM itself) and get a Sharpie/Marker and tick it/sign it/etc. Something which you can distinguish one from the other. The boards will look the same and you don't want to mix them up!.

Set your board to one side and get your replacement drive. Open it up too and remove the board in the same way. Now put your board in this new drive, carefully replacing the cables (there are guides online for this too). Close the drive and try it.

Because you're keeping the PCB from your drive, your DVD key will match still and you won't have any configuration problems!

Hello,

Region codes is a built-in feature of the DVD system designed to control where discs are viewed and distributed. All DVD hardware and software is coded using one of six numbers ( DVDs Regions 0 , 7 and 8 are special cases - see below ). The U.S. and Canada use Region 1. Region 2 discs are used in the U.K. , Europe and Japan . While Australia and the Caribbean use Region 4. These codes determine where the discs can be played.

Your console must match the discs region code.
This is not the case so you wont be able to play with this game.

Hope it helped.

Flash your 360 drive with a custom firmware and then you can play any region of any game or dvd movie

irql not less or equal sounds like a graphics driver problem. All you needed to do was boot up in safe mode and remove the gfx driver and the OS would have rebooted with the default driver and then you could have reinstalled it

May try another disc of FIFA as that one my be scratched on the update.

Think this might be due to a corrupt game save, as I tried starting the game from the 'press start' command with the second controller, so I didn't login as my gamertag, and all was well. I'm waiting to see if this is the case though before I go deleting gamesaves...

Microsoft Xbox... | Answered on Jun 06, 2019


I would recommend going back to the shop you got the game from and asking for a new copy, it seems more likely to be a disc problem than a console one, and just check that it is the correct format for your region.

try clean the lens that reads the disc on the xbox 360

Unfortunately you have to be over 16 to play EA games online. Only way to fix this would be set up a new Xbox profile with an older age

Try some other games. See if it is only the Madden game. Do any other games freeze? Are your fans loud? Is there a lot of heat coming from the back?
