My son's 360 has stopped working, no ring of death but it just isn't loading the games. Anyone any idea what might be wrong and how I can get it fixed?

Make sure the discs are free from fingerprints etc.

Could be anyone of a number of things, more than likely the laser needs replaced.

Move to Misc. - You'll get more help there...

Try posting it in the right section for starters (MISC)

Cheers, is that quite expensive to do?

Try a clean restart

Ie - unplug everything (literally, even power brick from wall) - and piece it back together, and turn it on without the tv connector cable in - wait for RRoD to show, then plug the cable in

See if that makes any difference...

probably the laser, about £17 quid for a new dvd drive, easy to do yourself if you equip yourself with the tools to open it

are you putting the discs in facing the right way?

whats happening when you close the disc tray?

It's working now, he dismantled it and then he put in a dvd and it played it and now it seems to be playing games okay too. Thank you very much to everyone who took the time to try and help out. Hope you all had a great christmas
