20 Most Recent Microsoft Xbox 360 Console Questions & Answers


There isn't anything you cab really do without opening the xbox up.
ll DVD's have what is called a region code. this is a code that is specific to 5 regions. in North America, we are region 1, and Japan, they would be region 5. If the Xbox is purchased in North America, the DVD drive in the Xbox, is imprinted with region code 1. This mean it will only play region code 1 movies, and games.

The only thing you can do is to either mod your xbox, or replace the DVD drive with a drive from a different region, but this will make it so you can play dvds from your region.

You cannot lock the 360, all you can lock is xbox live, you can also lock game ratings so if you have a 10 year old you can do this so they cant play halo.

to lock xbox live you have to go to the system settings and then parental controls.

If your controller is not assigned a position, and pressing the sync buttons on both the console and the controller don't fix it (i.e. they both spin for a bit, but then the console's lights turn off and the controller's return to a pulsing pattern), the the problem is actually likely to be your TV, believe it or not. The issue is HDMI -- it's a secure connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, and if there's an issue with that connection, the Xbox won't even be able to turn on since it'll be unaware of the TV's resolution, color capabilities, etc. Try turning off the TV and then turning off the Xbox. Keep the TV off and turn the Xbox console back on. You'll see the same behavior; but now turn the TV back on and you should see the controller get assigned a position. As soon as the Xbox is aware of what it's connected to via HDMI, things start to work again.

To listen to music files encoded in Apple's AAC audio format, your Xbox 360 console will need the AAC codec (a processing file), which is available as a free download from Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

The 360 wont play protected aac files, the kind you get from iTunes, but you can work around that if you burn the songs to mp3 using your computer, if you got them from itunes, they are protected and until apple and microsoft come to a conclusion on how to fix that, it wont let you do it, if you can change them to a format that will work with xbox, then you can play them, mp3, you can put the music on a disk and save to xbox or from computer to x box, there is also a patch that might work to if you download to your xbox.

You are not supposed to unplug the console while you are playing as there is a 5% chance that you can permanantly break it which sounds like your problem. If your xbox is under warranty then you can phone up microsoft and ask them to pick up your console and fix it 08005871102 is the number xbox helpline.

You might need a new disc all together, the one you have may have just a couple of scratches. (same thing happened to me!) all i simply did was buy a new disc (fifa) and it started working again. Hope this helps DIGMAN

sounds like your dvd drive is having issues. try to do a online update. that may fix the non reading disc issue. as for it damaging that cd and only that cd i would just buy a new dvd drive. most of the time when a cd comes out damaged its due to a belt spindle. which is the part that spins your disc, but your saying its only doing it to 1 game. try a update if that dont work purchase a new dvd drive. make sure u get the correct one

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!
