Xbox 360 Problems...

For about 3 months now, Ive had to restart my Xbox numerous amount of times because the ROM Drive would only play DVD's... So whenever I put in a game disc, It comes up with a white screen with "Please Instert this game into an Xbox 360 Console" in about 10 languages...

To get the Xbox to start, I have to either pull the lower out of the console and wait a few minutes or take the disc out and give the Xbox a good old whack...

Any help would be appreciated...

if its your dvd drive that is broken, they are easy to replace with the right tools

If it's mum, get son to sort it, if it's son get your mum to sort it, :whistling:


seriously, cant you ring microsoft and get them to repair it, i thought they were really good like that?


Well, its not youngest son (The one who normally posts), its eldest son :thumbsup: (Its the first time ive posted :))

Apparently, Microsoft will only fix it if its a RROD problem, which at the moment, it isn't...

i'm not addicted, younger brother is though:roll:

I'm trying to avoid it because it works, it just takes my fist to make it work, but if it RROD's, i wont be too bothered... apart from it will take about a month for them to fix it and send it back... WHAT WILL I DO FOR A MONTH BEFORE I START WORK?!?!:?

Mine had a problem where the DVD drive was broken, and wouldnt read disks properly. Irang the woman and cus it was out of warranty she said she couldnt take it back.

I waited a week, rang again and said it developed the RROD (Which it hadnt) and they sent me the details to get it repaired. Got it back 2 weeks later, with a letter to say the motherboard and DVD drive has been replaced. Great success!

Long story short. Lie. Tell them its a RROD and when they do the diagnostic they'll have to replace the drive as well if its actually broke :thumbsup:
