The disk tray button on the unit is probably being pushed in from the outer cover. When you took it apart and put it together you may have pinched the button in. Very carefully inspect the disk tray button area. The button needs its full range of motion. The faceplate is pushing the button in and that is why it works without it. Or the face plate is making the top cover to press in on the button. Go over the area and watch what the pieces are doing when you assemble the front in regards to the tray button. I had the same problem. Remember these pieces are plastic and after being run (heat) the plastic may want to warp a little since new.

I took my Xbox 360 apart to clean it when I put it back together everything works good but wireless controllers won't sync but wired controllers work anyone run into this problem


Hey Chad! I'm thinking it can't reaaaally be a coincidence that after you took apart your Xbox to clean it up that your wireless controllers stopped working. For that reason, I'm assuming that perhaps you may have accidentally disrupted one of the connections between the wireless syncing device inside the Xbox and its motherboard so that it doesn't function properly. My recommendation to you is to open your Xbox back up, now that you've voided the warranty already, and try to look around and see if there are any visible breaks in the connection between the syncing device (you can see where it's located just by looking at the front facing panel of the Xbox) and the cords or connectors that come out of it. Good luck to you, I hope it works out!

When you reassembled the xbox, you probably misaligned the infrared sensor in the front. If it isn't directly behind the red transparent window the signal can't be read. Open it up and check the alignment of the sensor. and make sure the connections are intact.

I took my xbox 360 slim apart to clean the fan heat sinks etc and put all the connections back into the disc reader and put the whole xbox back together but now the controller will not connect. the...


I havn't had the chance to work on a Slim yet, but from my experience with Phat 360s, you should clean out the connectors for the Ring of Light board with alcohol before reattaching it to the motherboard.

Im having a problem my x box 360 arcade wont work i have taken everything apart and took a look at the laser but it looks fine but when i put a game in it wont read what should i do?


Even if the laser lens looks fine it may still be faulty, or the HD drive itself might not be functioning correctly.

Is your console still under warranty? If so then contact Microsoft and get them to fix it for you for free.

If not you will have to either pay a 3rd party repair service to fix your 360, or try and fix the drive error yourself. You can read more about doing that here

Do i fix the tray that wont open on my xbox 360


Either you have something sticky spilled on your unit, or you may have to replace the motor for the disc tray. Also take note if the tray is even attempting to open at all. If so, it might just need to be cleaned.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.
