XBox Help

Okay guys, up until two weeks or so ago, my 360 was fine. However, it has started to no longer read my discs and it's pissing me off. I will put a disc in and it won't read it, and I'm stuck here for hours (I seriously mean hours) opening and closing the tray until it will read the disc. I've tried going to Microsoft about this but my warranty is up and I don't want to pay $99.99 for it to be repaired and have to wait 3 weeks to get another refurbished one back.

What is GameStop's policy on trade-ins and selling refurbed 360s? Or, if anybody has a quick easy solution, please tell me.

Call gamestop and ask them? You could always pick up an arcade for pretty cheap and switch your hard drive over

I wouldn't go the refurb route, trust me. I've been through two since the new year before I got one that actually worked, although they gave me a badass warranty and a discount for the inconvenience.

you sit there for hours just trying to play a game?
Maybe you should get rid of xbox all together and pick up a book.

Open the xbox, open the Dvd drive. Clean drive laser and spindle with rubbing alcohol. Success.

Yeah, I had to send in my 360 two years ago and it took three tries to get a working refurbished one so I'm pretty much done giving my money to Microsoft.

I will try this because I don't really care about Microsoft anymore and my warranty is out of date anyway. I hope you're right. Thanks for the tip.

Will the xbox work if you start it with a game in the drive?
