I am a long time xbox user and there is not much i don't know about my xbox but I am stumped.
here is the problem I have an old 2006 xbox I picked up used to replace my old xbox with a similar problem not accounting for this one I have had 14 replacements from xbox.
I put the disk in to play a game it says play game but the pic of the game dose not show up just the green BG and play game in right hand corner.
now if I press a when it dose this to play game it goes to black screen logs me off live and resets the xbox logs me back in to live but if I am in a party I have to manually log back in to that party
now to get it to work I will eject the disk till I see the pic for the game.
when I do get the game to work it will run for maybe 20-30 min then it will lock the screen only way to get it running is to reset and begin again.
I have sent this xbox to get repaired but as I said I bought this one used to replace the xbox that had disk read errors and that was out of warranty so I scraped it :( sadly this used xbox has been tampered with, and was returned from xbox stating so.
I would like any help I can get
I would buy a new one but cant afford that and I would like to continue playing 360 for years to come!
