I want to help you so what i did was, searched something about that on Google and i found this: http://m.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Scratched-Xbox-Game also, I'm not saying you have to trust me but, this isn't fake. Again, you don't have to trust me. :)
I know you commented 2 yrs ago but, a lot of people say, take your console to someone who had studied this stuff, or just take it back to where you got it (unless online), Gamestop, blockbuster (i think they might be able to fix it bit then again i don't know), or any electronics store might be able to help you.NOTE: IF THEY NEED YOU TO DO SOMETHING, DO NOT USE/DO ANYTHING THAT THEY DON'T MENTION/ANYTHING AS A SUBSTITUTE, YOU MIGHT BE TAKING A TERRIBLY DANGEROUS RISK!!!

How to Fix the Red Ring of Death on the Xbox 360
Thx alot it realy helps to know that
I've noticed I have a ring around the edge of a couple of my Xbox games and now they've stopped working what does this mean?
I see a lot of comments on here from people that obviously have no idea what they are talking about. Sorry to you all, but stopping the fan turning, flipping it over and letting the chip heat up to remelt the solder is just going to shorten the life of the components, if not risk killing them all together. The internal junction points in the chips are not designed to get hot enough to melt solder without actually melting some of the insides of the chip. The thing with fans, stopping the fan moving will shorten the life of the fan, having an external fan blowing on the unit will not upset any fan at all and actually will help keep it cooler, even if it appears to be competing with the existing fan a little.Honestly, if you have the rrod and you do not know much about electronics (ie, have not actually studied) and additional airflow around the unit doesn't help, take it to someone who knows what they are doing as most of the comments below are just going to do more damage than what they fix. This instructable has a good premise in that additional airflow will help reduce the overheating, but if the damage is done, nothing will fix it properly other than a proper repair.I am an Electronics Engineer with 20 years personal experience with gaming consoles, domestic electronics and Satellite electronics.
