Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

My xbox360 is not reading discs.

When i put a disc in it does not read it and says open tray. The discs are mostly brand new and have no damage. I'm also getting the circle scratch on some discs. I'm hoping i can fix it myself and don't have to send it in anywhere.

It sounds like its the lense that isnt in the right place and it protruding to close to the disks wich maybe because you have dropped the xbox? or movede it with the game inside with the xbox turned on? which is causing the lines on the disk which in turn stops the xbox from reading the disks, there could be a number of reasons why, that is what i think. hope this helps, p.s. i would send it in as xboxes are complicated lol you may end up breaking it more.

I put in a disc. it says reading then goes back to open tray. Help me.


Hello,

The most common reason for the Console saying reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Console including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Console going again!

Hope it works...

My xbox 360 dvd tray keeps opening


Determine whether the disc is dirty or damagedDiscs that are smudged, scratched or otherwise damaged cannot be read by the Xbox 360 console. You will want to examine the disc to see whether it has smudges, scratches, or other damage. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Examine the disc for dirt or damage: a. Pick up the disc by its edges. Do not touch the top or the bottom surface. b. Examine the shiny side of the disc to make sure that the disc is clean and has no damage.

Note Scratches that follow the curve of the disc are very damaging and prevent a disc from being read. If you see that your disc has even one of these types of scratches, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 2. If the disc is dirty, clean the disc by hand: a. Use a soft, clean, dry, chemical-free cloth to clean the disc. b. Lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward. 3. After cleaning the disc, try to load it in the Xbox 360 console. If the disc still won't load or you receive the same error message, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 4. If the disc is damaged, do one of the following: • If you think that the disc was already damaged when you bought it, try to exchange it. • If you have a damaged Microsoft Xbox 360 game disc and would like to order a new one, please visit the following Web site: http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/gamesandmedia/games/discreplacement/DiscReplacementPlan.aspx (http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/gamesandmedia/games/discreplacement/DiscReplacementPlan.aspx) • If the game is a non-Microsoft Xbox 360 game disc and was damaged because of misuse of some type, such as not storing the disc properly in its case, the only thing you can do is buy a new one. • If you feel that the disc was damaged by the Xbox 360 console in some way, please contact Xbox Customer Support. To do this, please visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.xbox.com/support/contactIf the disk is bad or damaged your unit will open when trying to read it. Hope this information helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else.
