Ok i put in my video game that i just bought and it says "open tray" and now it does it to EVERY game, CDs will work but DVD wont so basically my xbox is just a CD player what can I do to fix it?
This is a very well-known problem.
If you still have your warranty, I would recommend getting it sent back and repaired for free while you still can.
Although, if you don't have your warranty, here are a few options.
1.) Keep putting the disc back in and out. Eventually, it will work. I have the same issue with my Xbox on occasions. It just takes patience.
2.) If this doesn't work try changing the position of your Xbox. For instance, if your Xbox is laying horizontally try standing it up vertically. If your Xbox is standing up vertically, try laying it down horizontally.
3.) This option is ONLY suggested if both option 1 and 2 aren't working. A known, and accurate, solution to fixing this problem is taking a blunt object, I use my phone, controller, iPod, or screwdriver, and constantly hitting the corner closest to the disc tray of your Xbox right after you insert the disc. Don't be afraid to really hit it, but don't hit it hard enough to crack the exterior of your Xbox. How this solution works is unknown to me, but it definitely works.
4.) If none of the options above seem suitable, send your Xbox in to Microsoft and have them fix it. Although, they will charge you a fee.
Hope this helps.
