Ive done this with two consoles and they are still going strong over a year later, best thing to use is a drop of aftershave on a cotton bud to gently wipe the lens, dont apply force though just do it gently with two or three tips.

would be worth trying to take it back and see if theyve got a new one, better than faffing aroung trying to fix it
#12
H'm might try that lens cleaning thing..,. or maybe not..
#13

Theres nothing to the guts of an xbox basically hard drive, dvd drive motherboard and a fan! Im forever opening mine up to de dust it as its amazing how much those fans can suck in! TRust me your xbox is more likely to live a longer life by opening it and cleaning it than by not!:thumbsup:

You dont need a better fan the stock ones are fine, I have mine set at 40% and never had any problems at all.

The current state of my two as of 10 minutes ago is:

Note the dust on the fan and heatsink in the lower picture? Thats just 2-3 months worth!
In fact note the different layouts due to different versions!
#21
