    Default Serious XBOX Problems!

    Oh NO! my xbox is screwed! Its been working fine, but then i rent a game from blockbuster. I notice its scratched really bad, but hey, maybe it'll work. but it doesn't, and now my xbox doesn't read any games. and the games it does read, it just ends up skipping or crashing after 2 minutes. What should i do? and does it matter if i didn't buy that 2 year warranty thing, when i go to get it fixed or replaced?

    Reading a scratched game disc shouldnt (in theory) be able to harm your XBOX. I would suspect that it would be more likely that the crappy plastic covering that Blockbuster puts on their disc could be the more likely culprit. The edges are usually jagged, and small pieces could be sheared off, and float around in your DVD drive, wreaking havoc.

    First try cleaning your xbox before putting your own games in. second clean all rental games. Block buster sells a kit for 10 that does both. third as stated above the plastic from blockbuster labels causes damage ( it stateds in your xbox manuel not to pu stickers on games. So trim the plastic on the game you rent next time) Remeber it is electronic and if you dont take care of it it wont take care of you

    Oh and when not playing Halo the disc makes a great beer coaster!

    Default You should know....

    That if the disc is severly F*cked up it can mess up your laser. What happens is it skips the messed up parts and throws your laser off. That is what I was told.

    DOA3--HALO

    You are all wrong. Blockbuster puts a special label developed by Sony onto all xbox games. It's a freakin conspiracy!

    you don't know what a conspiracy is until you know they are watching you... that little green light on the XBOX... don't make eye contact, when the XBOX is on, do not say a word, they see, hear, know everything you are doing... DONT FEED THE BEAST!

    You could always rent the XBOX from blockbuster and pull a switch a Ru, for your defective unit.


    I know, moral wise it's not a nice thing, but when your addict you gotta do what you gotta do for an xbox

    That's a good point. Most Credit Cards have very extended coverage for product purchased on them.

    I love a good rip off. Create your own bits a-hole.
    Signatures are a boring reminder that everyone might have a personality.
