    Xbox 360 replacement laser for ms28

    Hi

    think my laser is on its way out, so need some advice, have searched the forum and know that i need to check what laser it is etc and most likely to find one on ebay but need some advice on fitting it?
    is any soldering etc involved? or is it a case of just poping out a ribbon cable and attaching new laser unit in?

    I'd try a POT tweak first. Took me 10 mins and all is working well now. The 360 would read games as DVDs and now reads games fine. Even better now they've released the new dash which puts less stress on the laser if you install to HD

    Edit:
    Just upped the tutorial I used

    Yeah, but it checks the DVD drive before loading the game off the HD just to make sure you have the disc (or a backup )

    Why not try? I couldn't even read a game on my 360 before I tweaked the laser. Copied COD4 to the HD earlier, game plays fine.

    i didnt mean pissin about with the laser tweak m8, i ment trying to install to the hard drive if your already gettin the dirty disk error.

    and as for your link on the pot tweak m8, ive just dug out my mulitmeter and am going to try it myself, cant hurt to try as its fucked now anyway, worse can happen is ill need a new one, which i do now anyway.

    so cheers for the tute link and ill let u know if it worked or not m8
