This is your laser thats losing power and needs either cleaning or the power adjusting so that its optimum again.

dont clean with the common disk cleaners as they are very abrasive and can actually damage the 360 laser eye.

instead strip down the console, then strip down the dvd drive and clean the laser eye with a cotton earbud with a little spit on the end of it. wipe the laser eye with a very gentle clockwise motion.

put everything back together and test if it works then you have done it. if it still does the same then you need to adjust the laser to make the power stronger so it will start reading again.

email me if you need help adjusting the pots on the laser.

ps: this can also happen if the disc is damaged or has the rings around it.

Wht does it mean when you put a xbox 360 gme in the console and it says play dvd and sometimesa wont read the game discs


When it says play dvd, it just randomly doesn't recognize that it's a game. Press A and you'll enter the game.
When it doesn't recognize the disc all together, I'd suggest cleaning the disc with an anti-static cloth then putting the disc back in.

When i try to play my fifa 09 it says open tray on my xbox.


There is a problem with either the DVD drive or the laser in your XBox 360. This happens with time on laser driven game systems or electronics.

Your 360 will need repair -- if you can do it yourself, you can find parts at the following website. If you're not able to do it yourself, they also provide the service:

Unable to play a game


Try cleaning the disc and check it for deep scraches. if it has deep scraches get a skip Dr (works like a champ) if this does not work. is the DVD drive and you should call a xbox 360 Repair shop.

My xbox 360 won't play my Fifa 09 game. I accidentally moved my xbox while the game was running and i heard the disc rattle. Didn't notice anything weird cause i stopped playing at that time. I go to play...


When you accidently moved your Xbox while the game was running, it probably put a scratch on your FIFA 09 disc.

You can try to fix it by using a cd /dvd scratch repair kit. You can find them at just about any store that sells cd or dvds.

I had a disc that wouldn't play and used one of the repair kits on it because I had nothing to lose. As I was applying the solution to the disc, I thought.... this is a complete waste of time.

When I wiped the solution off and put the disc in my Xbox, I had no expectations that the game would work. Well... I was wrong, the disc actually worked.

There's no guarantee the repair kit will work in your particular case but, you're in the same boat I was in... You've got nothing to lose by trying.

The only other option is to buy a new disc.

My xbox will not even read the disc


The Fifa 09 game must be a x box live game. Not a X Box 360 game.

When i put fifa 09 on xbox in the xbox it doen't start playing instead it goes black and tells me to clean the cd but i cleaned it and it said it again.


There are three possible solutions for this problem

Either

1) Your disc is dirty or damaged and unplayable

2) the disc has a manufacturing flaw in which case it can be returned to the manufacturer and if they can verify that the disc is the problem they will replace it free of charge (check the back of the manual for return details they vary from game publisher to game publisher) (this would be the EA one so ANY EA game will have this info in the back)

3) the problem resides in your Xbox, and this is a low probability. but in the case where they get you a new game and it still doesnt work call 1-800-4MY-XBOX. They will have you run some push button diagnostic codes and it will tell them if there is a problem with your system.

Will not play games


Make sure discs are not scratched. Try cleaning the discs using rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth.
