This will be my one topic on your forums so please just answer it.
When I press the power button on my xbox it lights up and everything but like 2 seconds after i turn it on it go's, click,click,click,click...1 second later same thing and over and over until the light around the eject button turns red and says "your xboxs needs service". It does this every time I turn it on ,exept every week or two it turns on but when I shut it off it wont turn back on without not working. If you can ,tell me whats wrong so I can have it fixed.
Once more This will be my only topic on your forums and when its answered I will leave.
I know that one of you guys knows whats wrong. Answer the question and Im gone.
I have no idea other than telling you to follow the directions and get it serviced.
Please be patient, just because there are no replies within twenty minutes of you posting a thread doesn't mean that no one is going to reply.
The thing is If I have it serviced it will cost around $120 , but a new xbox is only $130.
Why not hold off for two months and get an XBOX 360?
People are less likely to help you if you tell them you're just using them for an answer, then leaving their community forever. If it says it needs service, then it probably does. The clicking suggests an optical drive issue - have you tried it without a DVD in the drive? If that doesn't work, it's probably best to either buy a new Xbox or wait for a 360.
I didn't make it!
You probly got sumthin stuck in the drive like Reven said - i had the same problem with my PS2. If not, your drive is probly damaged
There is nothing stuck in the drive.
Open her up and fiddle around with it. XBOX 360 is coming soon so what do you have to lose?
