Hi i have had and fixed this problem pemenently!!

u need to take apart your xbox and remove the dvd drive:

then you need to crack open the dvd drive

once open if you look at the top part of the drive that would hold your game/disc youl notice that it is infact two pieces that are magnetinc and they will be stuck together

what you need to do is seperate them

then take the smaller piece and locate where it has come from

this is the centre on the dvd drive like on the pc where you would push the game on to

you need to super glue the small piece back into positon

reassemble let dry and it will now be working..

i no its hard to understanmd what ive written hear but this is a really easy fix...

Xbox 360 tray will work but wont read any discs .discs are spinning but wont play keeps comming open tray


Ok 90% of the time your console gives you the open tray icon when it tries spinning clean disks is because the laser has gotten to weak to read them. Your options are buy a new dvd drive or pot tweaking the laser which is relatively easy if you are not afraid to go hands on with electronics.
here is a good video on the tools you will need to open your xbox http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtm7V4NotgA
Now first i would try cleaning it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtm7V4NotgA
if that doesnt work I would recommend pot tweaking and here is a tutorial for that http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/93454-how-to-pot-tweak-xbox-360-dvd-drives/
honestly if you do not know much about electronics I would recommend just buying a new xbox dvd drive for like 20 bux off of ebay. But you will still have to open the xbox to figure out what drive you have and to actually swap it

My xbox 360 is not playing the games nd it didn't have no ring of death at all whats wrong with my xbox 360


Listen to the console carefully...if it sounds like the disc is being read and spinning then the lens could be dirty. If the disc does not spin it could be two things, one of which I have experienced and repaired. 1: the disc motor could be dead, or 2: the lens cradle is stuck somewhere on the track (I had this one).

If the cradle is stuck then it will make a barely audible clicking sound. To fix this I dismantled my box and the disc drive (WARNING: It voids the 3 year warranty!!!) and pushed the cradle to the center of the tray. Afterward, I opened and closed the tray to see visibly if the laser got stuck again...it didn't. I put a disc in and it read perfectly. So I pieced it all back together in hopes that I was successful. I did it at work earlier so I don't know the end outcome. So far it sounds perfect, disc and all.

Hope I helped =J

Xbox 360 open tray message; not reading discs


If it won't play any games it might be the laser that reads the disk. I would suggest getting it checked out somewhere.

My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!


This most likley a weak laser .
8 mw 633 nm laser diodes fail in stages
as they get weaker the cd ups voltage
to the laser diode till you get to full gain, affter that
it's time for a new laser .Good news
there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
hard to swap out yourself .

My 360 wont ******* play


i had the same problem. listen to your xbox cd rom and if you hear it start up and kinda skip or make a weird stopping sound then your disc drive/ cd-rom is wearing out. either send it in or do what i did and start by just giving the center to the center left above your cd-rom a nice few taps in a row while its spinning before it stops. fairly good knocks on the case will help it. i ended up really hittin mine a lot of time in row after about a month. sometimes it will put rings on your games thought but they buff out. i even took it apart but theres not much you can do

Xbox 360 disc drive


To april23

what has most likely happened is that the magnet which holds disks in place has dis-lodged and is now stuck to the roof of the dvd drive. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this would be to open up the xbox 360 and open up the dvd drive to fix.

So if you're not confident at this or in doubt in any way I'd contact Microsoft first if it's still under warranty, if not then it's a case of opening up the drive yourself I'm afraid.

Note. Does the drive attempt to spin up when you put a disk in?

Or does it just make small noises then nothing except "open tray" on screen?
