Just had the same problem, I actually took it apart and used a q-tip on the lens, works great first try. The only reason I did this is because the store here were out of lens cleaners (the ten dollar cd with a brush on it) and you are supposed to use these on all dvd/cd systems every 6 hours or so. Try this first and then if you have to take it apart (pain) and clean it off manually. Hope this helps

Will not read a disk just keeps saying open tray for an xbox 360

Clear the cache and try if it works. If not, try playing the consle without the harddrive. If it works then check your hard drive if it have a corrupted file.

My 360 just froze up [ unit is still locked in

unplug the power box from the wall for a few seconds and then try to tun it back on if the problem continues then it could be either a cooling problem or a game problem. check the game to make sure its clean. and be sure your 360 is laying FLAT not standing up the main air flow for the consel is located on the right side of the consel (the opposite side of the hardrive) keep atleast 4 inches on that side

I have a 1 month old arcade edition. ive been having trouble when putting in a new game it keeps saying open tray.... ill open and close the tray and clean the disc. it will eventually start working. Is...

you should try to clean the eye of the consel. get an adult (if your not above 18) and get a can of airduster (canned air). then just spray inside the game drive. make sure your can is level when you spray it or else the chemicals from inside the can will spray into the consel and that would be bad. not a total loss just sum that you dont want to happen

Door well not open

hit the top of the consel were the disk drive is it could just be dusty and has 2much friction to move on its own. if that still dosent work then push the buttom to open it and get a thin object (like a butter knife or sum that wont damage the consel) and use leverage to open it but make sure the consel is trying to open it itself or else you will jam the gears if you dont do it rite

first off check the color of the light in the power brick. if its yellow then it mite be the outlet that not giving you enough power. if its green then your brick and your outlet are ok but the consel mite be shorting out. if its white it mite be the brick. if the problem still isnt resolved after you check those then it mite be another situation that could involve that consle.
