when the system wont read a game, a movie or a cd. what is the cheapest, easiest way to fix this.

i found a guy on craigslist that will do it for $40 to put in a new lens.
any other ideas?

This happened to one of my xboxs and the cheapest i found was a lens for 15 shipped from hong kong on ebay took a month to get here tho.. I replaced it myself, its really not that hard.. maybe 30 mins worth of work.. but if your really crunching for your box.. 40 dont seem all that bad

Iv had this as well, though mine was a dirty lens and not a cracked one; so you should probably make sure its actually cracked or broken before buying a new one.

Blow into it, or use a 'cleaning disk' then check if it works.
