You may have to adjust the POT of the GameCube lens... The POT is basically the power and spread the lens uses to read discs... the problem is, over a long period of time, the POT figure drops down, and if it drops too low, you will need to replace the lens.. The machine could still be salvageable, and play games and load them faster than before if you adjust the POT on the machine.. Here is a guide on what is required to open up the machine and do it, if you feel it necessary.... http://modthatcube.pxn-os.com/content/pot.htm

Mine had the same problem. the tech support guy told me to clean my disks. It wasn't spinning, the disk wasn't dirty, and it didn't work for other disks but after I cleaned them, the system worked fine.

The disks won't spin/read. It powers up and gets internet connected but it won't read disks. I have a 60gb and do not want to get rid of it. Whats wrong, where can I get it fixed, and how much should it...


THe lens of your PS3 if failing and thus the reason it won't read discs. You can call Sony andhave it fixed, it's free if warranty is still good and $159 for out of warranty repairs.

Disc not spinning


You will need to have your Disc drive fixed. If you have a warranty send it to Microsoft. If you don't there are plenty of people that can fix it or replace it. I am one of those people. You can contact me if you would like me to help you, or help you find someone else who can.

Nt reading discs


If it spins up ,then says open tray
its a bad/weak laser or no spin up
would be a bad drive/wormgear motor.

The laser replacement cost 70.00-80.00
the drive swap cost 80.00-100.00
The laser cost 35.00-50.00 D.I.Y.
and the drive cost 40.00-65.00 D.I.Y.

My 360 dose not read discs but it dose spin them


Disc Error :- I have the same error. You can do 4 things.

A) You have to keep turning it on and off. Here's how... Turn it on, then click open tray then close tray ( keep opening and closing tray about 10 times) then turn the console off. Then keep repeating process for about 15-20 minutes and eventually the game disc will show up. ( I have to do this every time)

B) Make sure that this is covered by Microsof't's RROD warranty. Then some how get teh red rings on this console and send it to Microsoft. (Note: I am not held responsible for your actions.)

C) This is a lens problem. So go out to a store and buy a DVD lens cleanser. It's a disc that cleans the lenses of the DVD or the XBOX.

D) Open it up and replace the lens (like the above guy said) (much harder and more costly).


Pls rate my solution if it did help thanks.

Wii unable to read gamecube disc... :(


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

Two cheap and easy fixes I can think of that MIGHT help, short of opening the unit, would be to get a can of compressed air, and spray around the fan area, and the disc bay. also use a clean swab dipped in alcohol, and gently clean the laser lens
