All my discs dont work.

Does the screen eventually read "Open Tray"?
This is a very common error, you need a DVD drive replacement. Only an experienced person can do this, if you don't do it correctly you won't be able to play games again. If you'd like I can do the repair for you, contact me at

Wont read discs. turns on fine, i dont get a red light, but when i pop a disc in, whether its a movie or game, it wont read it

replace the dvd loader. that way if it is either the laser or spindle motor, you will have solved the problem.
and its easier than dismantleing the entire unit setup dvd game ***'y

Your issue is likely a dirty lens. First step, try a DVD lens cleaner, if not, you may have to take the drive apart to manually swab the lens with some rubbing alcohol.
