Xbox 360 not updating
If you’re like me, you’ve taken your Xbox apart, wrapped towels around it, and sacrificed a baby lamb to the You Tube gods in hopes a twelve year old’s how-to video will end your misery.All in a last-ditch effort to just play Call of Duty 47. There’s no easy way to get inside and scrub that sucker with Windex and a paper towel, but you’re the determined type who doesn’t want to risk not being able to play GTAV every hour of every day. The major contributing factor to a disc read error is a dirty optical lens (the one that your Xbox 360 laser passes through to read the disc itself).I’m sure you’re gentle with all of your toys, especially the Xbox. Hey, it’s a lot better than buying an all-new system.
Red ring of death, DVD drive failures, and excessive overheating come to mind.
That consumers have rights, and we aren't afraid to stand up for them. I just saw you trying to rap battle Sony My attempts at humor aside, I do take this whole matter very seriously.
Again, it's not about me, I was on the verge of quitting this stuff last June, and I would hate to be the one who sets a reputation for hackers that all a company has to do is sue us and we back down.
You could send it in to Microsoft, but then that usually requires 2-4 weeks of no Xbox. If there is dirt or dust on the laser lens, your system will eventually fail to read the game disc.
Lots of brushes and DVD-style discs have been on the market for years that claim to clean the lens effectively. Sure, cleaning a game system isn’t a dangerous task (unless you’ve got your Xbox opened up and are removing hardware with pliers outdoors during a thunderstorm). The laser lens can get knocked out of alignment easily with the wrong approach. Feel free to do your research (this guy really seems to like it, and swears like a sailor) and carefully follow these instructions once you buy it.
Today’s frustration focuses on a more in-depth problem: why won’t my Xbox 360 read game discs?
