    HOW TO RESET YOUR 360's LASER

    My 360 that is NEW from Best Buy as of early November or so stopped reading discs today. I just turned it on, and it won't spin the disc up. Google is no help as it just recommends ways on replacing the drive. This is total bullshit! I have every game I play burned to the HDD except for Tiger Woods. I am careful that I don't as much as nick the 360 when it is on.

    WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

    Do you mean that if you just put in a disc, nothing happens? [edit: just saw your second post]

    I've had several problems with my xbox, although it has not officially died yet. Some of the common errors I get is "Please insert this disc in an Xbox 360," a still image of the Xbox 360 logo, and, most recently, the console thinking it is horizontal when it's standing up (the top right light comes when only the first player controller is on). The three red rings flashed for me once, but it continued to work anyways :) Hopefully yours is just a temporary problem that fixes itself soon.

    Oh, I forgot to mention my Xbox's most annoying problem: if you leave no disc in the disc tray, it won't come out by itself. You have to wiggle the thing until it decides to cooperate.

    I bought this unit less than 4 months ago. It was manufactured on 3/3/09. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!

    HOW TO FIX: Insert Disc, wait for open tray message. Turn off XBOX with disc STILL in tray. Turn on XBOX with the button to open the tray, pull out disc and immediately slam tray shut, turn off XBOX immediately. Should hear buzzing sound, this is the laser reset sound put disc back in and problem should be fixed. YOUR WELCOME.

    You don't have to VIOLENTLY slam it. Just force it back in. Big difference.

    I got 3 red lights last night...Tried this. Thought it had worked but it's looking like it failed. Any other tips or places to look for tips on this?

    Luckily I still spy on you guys over here. Woke up this morning and after 10 minutes of opening and closing the tray to no avail I had remembered seeing this stickied over here. Worked like a charm, thanks for the sticky Basis.

    Being as we already have a bunch of stickies and this is something that assists the overall site, perhaps @Shaun Mason can move this sticky to a better area (Locker Room). Personally, I think this would be a better home for this as this is not league specific to The Experience.

    Wish I'd of seen this 2 weeks ago . . . Google and Youtube had me dropping it on a pillow, slamming it shut, beating the top of it, etc . . . Ended up sending it off. Good news is it was still under warranty and it will be back early this week. Bad news is I've been suffering from withdrawls pretty much since the day I left. At first I kept instinctively trying to find a joystick on my tv remote.
