The lens may be faulty, you can try a lens cleaner disc, wet/dry it might help, but most likely there is a fault in the lens or other mechanis of the drive. Best to get it serviced, if you have warranty, that will cover the fix.

Xbox trouble

Better off going for a replacement DVD as you may never get the drive motor to function normally. Timing is important and alignment super important.

Game console will not read disks

Usually the LASER which you can find on ebay for about £10. It is very easy to replace yourself but you will need to know what DVD player is in your console (i.e. Benq, Samsung, Hitachi etc) and it's model number so you will need to take it apart which again is pretty simple. There are many tutorials on this found through Google or on video with You Tube.
Enter the model into the Ebay search box (i.e. BENQ VAD6038 LASER) and click search.
I'm in the UK so seleted 'UK Only' in the search options so I don't got to wait a year for it to arrive and I selected 'price from low to high including postage'.
Try and select a seller with a yellow ribbon 'PowerSeller' status as they tend to want to keep good feedback scores on post things on time and well packaged.
My search found this result:

That will be just the job for that drive and is a cheap fix. Remember this is not hard to do. Just be patient, calm and confident. I have seen a 12 year old do this and fitting instructions usually are supplied. If not Google or You Tube again.

Please rate if this helped.

"No Read" display...99% of the times.

OK. Since the laser cleaning disk could not be read I used a can of air (used for air brushing) and blew air into the disk opening. I thought I might clean any dust that may have collected around any parts that needed to be cleaned. This seemed to have worked. It is also possible that dust accumulated in an area that would not allow the disk to line up properly. This could explain why it worked sometimes. If this continues as a problem I will use the EZ17 only as a tuner for my EZ55.

Hi there my 360 is having some problems,when i put a game in it keeps on telling me to insert the disk into an xbox 360, or if the auto run option is off,then it will just say play dvd or open tray? after...

after taking the entire drive apart i found that the laser / moter assembly was offset. this ment that the disk was tilted 1degree towards the laser and intern hittng the laser assembly that so many peopl think is "laser burn" which actualy is the disk physically hitting the laser. how u fix this is as easy as adjusting two screws were the moter and the laser/ tray assembly meat. now thses arnt nomal phillips, flat head or torx scews. i found that stickin a drill bit in the screw head annd turnin it with some pliers did the trick. this fixes the open tray error for good unless the disk is causing it. IF anyone gets open tray ocasionally this should stop it for good. also try cleaning inside of drive make sure connection to drive is good. try turning the system on then emmidiatly opening and closing the tray a couple time.

How to and what programs needed to replace my original samsung drive with my new BenQ VAD6038

The benq is a far superior drive over the samsung. Spoofing the drive is also time consuming and there's a big chance on bricking the drive. If you want a excellent tutorial on how to load the latest ixtreme firmware (ixtreme 1.6) download FrostytheSnowmans mod disc utility. I personally prefe rthe usb modification tool. Both are available on xbins.

What I use:
Frostythesnowmans usb mod tool

Thats the only programs I use.

Frosty's mod tool includes complete detailed instructions on how to do the mod. It's as easy as typing what is already in brackets on the screen. You load the usb drive, coonnect the xbox when it says to, it will them automatically read, mod, erase, and load the new created firmware on the system for you. It's also error proof using a benq drive. One last awesome feature of the program is that you do not need to have the previous firmware backed up to update the firmware, it does it all for you. My personal email address is Email me if you need further clarifacation.

Volvo nav system "cant read disk"

Try using a can of compressed air to blow dust out of the unit. Insert the tub into the area where the disk is normally inserted. Blow the compressed air and remove dust which may be covering the lens which reads the CD. Also, try a different "Music" CD, be sure it is not an MP3 CD.
