    Mine does the same exact thing.

    Have you tried other games or other types of media? Try another game or two, and try a CD (not burned) or a DVD and see if the same error occurs. It may be the disc or it might be the 360's laser.

You need to unplug ever cable you have and every accessory you have. Unplug adapters memory units hd inter coolers every thing. let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug everything back in then press the button to open the tray to turn it on then put in a different game keep it open . Then when the menu comes go into a program so you can't see play game or close tray. Then when you are in the right place close the tray.

I put a game into my xbox 360 console and it still says open tray as if there isnt a game in there,what do i do to get it to read the game,that doesnt require me to pay money to fix,how to do it myself.


For some reason, it is not reading the game. Try spraying some air into the consule. Sometimes dust can cause it not to read the disc. If not, your looking at multiple things.

It wont read my disc it sits there and doesnt attempt to read any disc it says open tray how can i fix this?


Ahhhhhh This is a fun one! Ok here is the first thing you should do. Put a disk in the tray and keep in mind the position it is facing. Close the tray and wait for your system to say open tray now open the tray and examine the disc. Let me know if it is in the same position and we'll go from there!

When putting disc in on screen says open tray once game is in it doesnt read games or films


It's a dead laser most of the time that cause a empty open tray message . The laser are cheap 20.00-30.00 . I buy mine from
Rich's PSX , there not hard to install if you want to save a little
money/time. Or you can have a shop swap it out for 70.00-80.00
some times less . if you need more info ,ask.

When i place a disk in my Xbox 360 console it


I have had this happen about 3 times. The first time was when i figured out how to fix it. The 2nd and 3rd were temporary.(Just needed to be turned off for a moment) You need to shut the console off for atleast 15 minutes 10 at the lowest with everthing unplugged. I mean the hard drive, memory unit, and all cables, and adapters. Then after 10-15 minutes plug everything in and DON'T PRESS the BUTTONS ON THE XBOX OR THE CONTROLLERS. Press the button to open the tray and take out the game or dvd and put in a different one. If this doesn't work do it all over again and then put in a different game or dvd not the previous ones and turn on the console the same but then a soon as you get the disc in and closed in shut it off then open the tray and wait till you are at the main menu go into any program so you can't see it is reading and close the tray. If that doesn't work contact the xbox support line. Really hope this works for you.

When i put in a brand new game disk,it starts to read,but it but it doesn't read the new disk.it just says"open tray"


put in a game and as soon as it starts to say "reading" give the old box a few taps on top where the dvd drive is at. Keep tapping until it reads your game. May not work the first time so keep trying. This usually happens due to poor or loose laser mounts. If this doesnt work your gonna need to open it up. You can look at You Tube for that. Good Luck.

Xbox 360 doesnt read games


Does this problem only happen with this disk? If it only happens to that one, then the disk may be dirty or broken.  If it happens to all of your disks, your console's "eye" (disk reading device) may need repair. If this is the case, you should contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX.
