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
You can find more information about this issue, find parts to repair it, or send your system to repair all at the following website:
The best bet is to try and clean the laser, if the unit is under warranty, contact microsoft and send it back, if not, dont use a laser cleaning kit, they are useless at cleaning and excellent at spreading the grime over the eye. Open the case, an online guide will help you learn the art of pulling apart the xbox, dis-assemble the dvd drive assembly and clean the laser using a cue tip or cotton bud. Good Luck.
Hi, it sounds like you have the" open tray" error that is very common with the 360s. How you fix this is you take your DVD drive apart and look at the laser assembly, there are 2 screws on the side of it, look at the one on the left. Turn this screw to the left a VERY little bit at a time and keep checking it every time you turn it until it stops the open tray error.
The game disc might be scrached, or smudged... look at the disc CAREFULLY and see. It might not be the disc, (try another one, and if that doesn't work) you'll have to (unplug it first) take the top cover off and look at the optical lense and see if it is scrached or smuged, (or dusty) If it is the disc (meaning another one works) then clean it with a COTON cloth and try that. or get a disc scratch remover (15 to 45 bucks) and use that. If it isn't the disc, Buy a new system ($$) or a new lense($$$$)
open it up ( very carefully) and check to see if the disk tray end is still attached or alligned to the plastic gears that eject the tray. if so check the rubber band to make sure it has not broke or streched.
This actually concerns the entire loading dock assembly and optical lens. this is an all in one piece. you can separately, replace the optical lens but, if the tray is not operating smoothly,i recommend replacing the entire DVD drive.
