Xbox 360 disk reading probs

Just wondering if you know of a reputable place to buy another dvd for my 360. I bought one from ebay while back supposed be new but it had dust in it. It seemed to work fine though. I got an other 360 that had the red rings error and I fixed that some washers and screws. But now the disk is reading alot of disk errors. I may just buy another of ebay or if you know of another supplier I may try that.

You own a repair shop? How do you go about getting training to fix stuff. I fix cars for a living also. But I also have modded my wii, xbox, ps2 etc. I can usually fix anything if I got the right info or a schematic. But I have been thinking of fixing some elecronics and tvs etc for partime stuff on the weekends. Just wondering how to go about it.

We currently have some secondhand dvd drives in stock, Samsung MS28's and Hitatchi 78fk. Both working ok and taken out of working machines that had 3rrod. We also stock all other parts www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Good luck setting up a business m8, the best advice is to do some research and learn every fault and repair to the point where you know it by hand.

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

I just bought and replaced my drive for my xbox 360, and it reads movies and cds, but it reads my games as a dvd, and says play dvd. When I select it is either stays on the xbox logo screen, or it it says...


Sounds like the DVD drive is going bad. Pretty soon it'll stop reading everything.

You could replace the drive yourself. Just buy a replacement drive off eBay/Amazon or some other retailer. The issue with that is that the Xbox 360 DVD drives are designed to
only work with the Xbox it came with, so you'll have to do some fancy stuff to get the replacement to work in your Xbox.

Here's a link to replacement drives.
Here's a link to a guide (with excellent visuals) on how to actually replace it.

Too complicated? Just send it back to Microsoft, let them sort it out. If you're under warranty it should be free; otherwise, it'll cost you some money. Here's a link to their service center. (If you send it in, remember you keep your hard drive! They might not send it back if you forget.)

Hope it all works out!

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

My console is beginning to suck


you can buy a disk cleaning set or you can take a damp cloth and wash the back of the disk, also make sure your console is sitting so that the disc insert is sitting horizontal

Sounds like you have a faulty DVD drive. If you are still in warranty Microsoft should either repair/replace the console, call them and explain the situation. Otherwise, if your warranty is out, you could replace the DVD yourself, there are many places to pick up the drives, ebay is a good place to start also xbox-scene.com would be able to help.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!

Pick up in the DVD is bad or weak and will need replacing.
Or replace the whole DVD unit.

Make sure the disks are clean and not too scratched up
