    xbox does not provide a 5 year warranty for this issue and they do not pay for it to be shipped back. The charge is $99 if you are outside the one year warranty. A new console is needed for this issue.

Hello, I have an Xbox 360 and after several exchanges from the three death, to what i have heard and seen here lately is don't set the console in the upright position, vertical, it needs to lay horizontal, so the disk tray opens and a game will lay in it. If the warranty label hasn't been tampered with x-box has a five year warranty, so the unit can be replaced free of charge, Xbox payes for it to be shipped. Make sure you follow the instructions and remove everything, cause they send a core back to you, that's it! The only other assitance I can provide is that while the tray is in the open postition check the tray area with a flash light to see if something just happened to get in there, plastic will stick to a DVD and then you load that DVD and plastic in there. 1st step lay the xbox 360 on its horizontal side, check tray area for debris, if problem has no change call X-box 1-800-4myxbox. I hope this has helped and I looked forward to helping in the future, Thanks

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?


The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

Xbox 360 wont read discs


might be the games. any amount or size of scratches can make it unreadable, you can get them fixed in a electronic or music store, they scrape some of the plastic off the bottom and there you go if this was the problem, of its not you can always send in your console to microsoft and get it fixed/replaced.(you need the reciept to do this)

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.
