Got a Broken Xbox One Blu-ray Drive? Spank its Bottom and it Might Fix Itself

By Gary Cutlack on at

Turn your Xbox One upside-down, make a wish and smack it on a table three times is the latest unofficial advice regarding the Drive of Doom failure issue, with users reporting success in hitting their broken machines to make them work again.

The extremely amateur Xbox One disc drive fix also works if you just flip it over and pat it on the back a few times, with gamers claiming that a misaligned drive gear can be popped back into place by giving the console a few punches to the kidney region. Sounds stupid, but there's embedded video evidence of it working up there, plus if your machine's broken Microsoft's going to be sending you a new one anyway, so... what's to lose? [The Verge]
