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!
Most of this can be taken apart with a screwdriver . The case is a little tricky. You will notice from the side...where the case is split, there are tabs on the inside that you need to press. I poked a small screwdriver through the vent holes to press them and get the box apart.
It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)
Send back for repairs. If you can't get ready to crack her open.
You might wanna have an air compressor or shopvac ready as well *when describing i mean as if it were standing up* Take apart in this order:
1: hard drive 2: face plate 3: top and bottom grey plastic pieces (try to keep as level as possible, they are difficult but if they wont come out try wiggling around a bit, if you force it you WILL break some plastic off 4: you have undoubtedly noticed the 4 hook type things on the front under the face plate. if your first instinct is to separate those then you are a natural 5: with something small (i used a flat-head jewelers screwdriver) you need to poke through (gently, all you are doing is making a *click sound*) all seven 2mm wide slots that run down the middle of the back WHILE you are pulling apart to keep them from snapping back together
so i was writing all of that and looking for a pic to post for you and found this:
so just follow the instructions and clean the xbox of all dust, make sure all connections are firm and snug. it should extend you xbox's life as well as possibly play another game (hopefully) i've gone through 4 xbox 360s and im bout ready to get a ps3
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.
if its original xbox, send it for a replacement already
if its 360,
does it say reading and just goes back to open tray??
-check the time and date settings on the console, even the time zone
-check if there is any corrupted file on the hard drive
-try to load a disc without the harddrive,if this works you need to perform system maintainance on the xbox
