Xbox 360

Hi. My son's xbox360 is playing up. Using brand new disks, the drawer keeps opening 4 or 5 times until it eventually plays then after 10 mins or so, it will just eject. It's a few years old. Any ideas please!

The DVD drive is failing, it's a common problem. You could try getting it fixed under the consumer guarantees act if it's not too old. Otherwise try googling "xbox 360 clean dvd lens". You can get the laser replaced for $60 or so e.g. from

Too old to get fixed but will try a lens cleaner and see how that goes. Thanks
