You might need a new laser lens, but first i would try a laser lens cleaner you can pick them up from about £4.99 other wise your looking at a new lens at about £7 plus which aint that bad but do you think you can fit it.

My xbox keeps saying play dvd when theres a game in it and all the games are new and perfectly fine


If it does this to all of your games your xbox is Defected and you will have to take it back or fix it. If it is only one disc then take that disc back and they should switch it.

My machine wont play the games, it keeps saying there dirty


just take it apart and use a q-tip and alcohol to clean the laser be very gentle and if that doesnt help clean where the disc actually sits in the drive because that can get dirty and cause the disc to not spin fast enough

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.

EA sports nhl/o9 says disc is dirty game is brand new /second one


when this happens you will need to buy a cleaning disk from staples. when you have the disk, insert it in the x-box. when you've done that play track number two. this process will adjust the eye so that the brushes on the disk will wipe the dirt or ather stuff from thy eye.

Wont read new discs only call of duty 4


It may just be that your dvd drive's laser is dirty (idk how) but thats what was wrong with mine. It would say that there way no disk or that my 260 games were dvds, then I took it apart and cleaned the laser. That fixed my problem so it might work for your system just google "how to take apart 360" and you should find some guides of taking it apart. Anyway hope this helps!
