    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.

    But they have probably run out.

    get a refund and buy one of my modded ones :whistling:

    would be worth trying to take it back and see if theyve got a new one, better than faffing aroung trying to fix it

    H'm might try that lens cleaning thing..,. or maybe not..

    take it back then. see if they can find you a replacement from another store or something.

    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!

    so only the hard drive should be upgraded ? im thinking of putting a 250GB (will need help with it tho:whistling:)
