My xbox 360 elite keeps on saying open tray even though i have a game in i would open it than it would read for about 2 seconds than say open tray again and i dont want to take it apart to void my warranty


The warranty on the XBox 360 is ONE YEAR. If you have had it for more than a year, there is no more warranty to be void. You can open it.

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.

Xbox 360 elite console makes 2 weird noises and says open tray when putting in any discs.how to fix it


I've fixed open tray errors before, and if you are sure the problem is with the 360 and not the disc, it means you need to open the dvd drive and slide the laser over once or twice (at least based on my experience). BE CAREFUL. The mechanism that allows the laser to move around and read the disc is probably jammed.

XBOX 360 Elite won't play disc; says "reading" then "open tray".


If the console has never been opened to change the dvd drive then eather your laser lens or one of the 2 motors in the drive needs to be changed. 90% of the time its the laser lens. You cant just use any laser for the xbox 360. There are 3 different drives. Toshiba, BenQ, Samsung, so you have to see what drive model you have before you try to order one yourself. I repair these often with 99% success.

prolly the laser you can buy one on ebay for 15-20$ or buy a new dvd drive for 50$ if you replace the laser you will need to solder for the dvd drive all you will have to do is open the case and pull out the broken one and put in the new one

My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!


This most likley a weak laser .
8 mw 633 nm laser diodes fail in stages
as they get weaker the cd ups voltage
to the laser diode till you get to full gain, affter that
it's time for a new laser .Good news
there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
hard to swap out yourself .
