Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc Read Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

This happens to me sometimes as well, but usually it's very infrequent, and happens mostly with old original xbox games.

Basically, the xbox is just temporarily confused. Just eject and reinsert the disc and try again. Usually, the second try always worked for me. If that won't work, simply reboot the xbox with the disc in the drive. Now try to run the game.

Let us know if this works.

When I put in Call of duty Black ops in my Xbox 360 it keeps telling me to open and close tray reapeatidly


The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

You can find more information, along with any parts or repair services you need to fix the issue yourself (or have them fix it) at the following page:

When i turn on my xbox and go to xbox live the box where it shows the game you have in. mines blank and i put any game in, doesnt matter what kinda game or anything and it says reading..............then...


Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.

· Note Use ONLY water to clean the disc.

· Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your console and see if the disc plays.

Xbox will will not play any games or DVD's.


try putting the game disc into your game console and close the lid with your hand without pressing the close lid button. hold the disc tray with your hand and turn off the game console. Turn on the game console. If problem still persists try cleaning the xbox with a blower or a vaccum. Pm me if problem still continues. Thank you .

Disc wont read


Hi

Are you using a modded Xbox 360 console?, if not then the disc you are trying to play is probably a copied Xbox 360 disc which would not work on an original Xbox 360
