PostSubject: XBox Problems..   Sun Nov 17, 2013 7:24 pm

So I was going to stick around for a while and finish out the season and draft, maybe play more. But since last year I've been getting hardware problems sometimes when I turn on my Xbox. Today it outright refused to play any games I have on disc and it seems it has finally given out on me. I can still play the games I've downloaded but that's pretty much it. Sad So it looks like I'm going to be forcibly retired now. I'll still be around taking care of the website and helping out. Hoping to get an Xbox One for Christmas, or at least a replacement Xbox 360. We'll see what happens there. As of right now I can't afford to replace the system I've got.

Just wanted to let you guys know what's going on. Maybe I can come back once I get the problem fixed but for now I'm unable to play any games or take care of my team. I'm still available here on the site to help with any problems and help update things. I don't want Darth to have to do it all alone.

You could try downloading the game to your hard drive from the disc if you ever find a time it actually reads it. It sounds like the optical sensor may be going dead.

That was actually the first thing I tried, both for Madden 25 and Black Ops II. Neither one worked. Might be the sensor. Even so, sometimes when I turn on the XBox I get a redring and have to shut it off and reinsert the hard drive just to get it to go to the dashboard.

In the early versions of the 360 if you got the red rings of death there was a trick that worked to get it to work.

It's gonna sound kinda weird, but if you wrap the xbox in a blanket and turn it on, it'll over heat and start working. Again, this worked when I had version 1, the white xbox.

I'll give that a try but my team is already gone now.

That's not going to fix his lens not reading disks.
