    i'm sorry. I don't think you understand. We have the machine taken apart. We push it in by hand, but it doesn't open. If it played that would be fine, but it always says that it's open rather than reading the disc (even after we have pushed it in).

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 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 wont start spinning disc

Sounds like your drive died. Try looking inside to make sure nothing is stuck insde the drive (disc label, another disc, lumps of dust). Try spraying it out with canned air (they sell it at computer stores). If not.. send it to microsoft for repair.

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?
