Hi guys, first time posting here,

 

here's my issue:

 

I was just playin my 360s for about two hours (halo 4 of course), after all of the sudden, my console started buzzing really loud and the next thing you know, BAM. My disk broke.

 

Has this happend to one of you as well?

 

ps: I'm getting a refund from microsoft, very nice, except for the fact that I have to pay 15 euros for a refund.

 

 

kind regards from the Netherlands,

This has never happened to me before, and I didn't know it could happen. Did it crack the disc or break it into multiple pieces?

It happened to me with my world at war disc like 3 years ago. I honestly thought my xbox was going to explode.

Yes, I think I might be able to help assist you in it happening again. How was your Xbox set up? Because, if it is stood upward, the disk is not stable, bumping around a lot, which can cause scratches. As for the buzzing, that is likely a separate issue, because, mine does the same. Keep your room well cooled and keep the vents uncovered.

I swear my Xbox S severely scratched my Halo 4 disc.

 

I can't really prove it cause it's really quiet, but I really take care of my games, and now I literally have to wash the disc every time I want to play it.

I came across this hundreds of times, it's usually just hungry. Remember to keep it well fed.

 

 

But seriously, check the tray to make sure nothing is in there that would bump the disk off 'track' and make it start jumping around in there

Just a heads up dont throughout your scratched game's take them in to a game store not gamestop lime hastings some have a dvd buffer that can and will remove scratches from old games its usually cheep to have done as long as the game has no cracks in the eye of the disk look it up if you don't believe me. hope it helps.

i am an xbox expert and there are 2 simple things you can do

 

1. Install your games then when you know you are done playing them a lot uninstall them to free space

 

2. As soon as the xbox does that sound pull the plug immediately and wait about 10 mins then turn your xbox on and remove the disc until you find out if the tray is full of dust or not 

 

Hope i helped
