Xbox 360 disk tray problems

Hi, the problem could be down to one of a couple of things the first and most common is a dust build up on the runners inside the tray or the laser lense itself sometimes knocking on top of it would read the games for about 4 days. then knocking will stop working. if you have any warranty left then take it back and get them to fix it or replace it, if you have no warranty left then you could either pay someone to fix it or try fixing it yourself if you do it yourself goolge for xbox 360 repair guid and this will then list loads of sites that show you how to take it apart, doing this will void any warranty and can cause more problems if you get it wrong..
if after getting it cleaned or cleaning it yourself it still dont work then this points to the fact that the dvd drive is no longer working and will need replacing.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
