Turn off your machine. Take the front cover of the Xbox 360 off, this will expose the front of the machine and where the dvd-rom is there is a pinhole underneath it. Use something small like a thick paperclip, bend it so its straight and then push that into the hole, it should open it then.

Sometimes the black rubber that is around the wheels near the front of the drive that you can see when it opens gets dirty. If you have a qtip, spray some window cleaner on it and put it up against the black rubber and hold it lightly there and with your other hand move the door back and forth and what this will do is clean the black rubber. Do this plenty of times so the whole rubber gets slightly damp and you should see some black marks on your qtip showing you that your cleaning it properly. Put the front plate back onto the front of the Xbox 360.

After this then then turn the machine on and press the button for the dvd-rom and the door should open and close when you want it to again.

Hope this helps.

My xbox 360 isnt reading my halo reach game


Does it show the disk when you load it. Like is it just saying tray open. What model 360 do you have. I know if you have the ones without a hard drive you cant play certain parts of the game. Like multiplayer. I think even the campaign, but I could be wrong. If your xbox is saying tray open when you load the game. Your probably getting hardware error. Happened to my old one. If you have other games try and load them. See if this is only happening with Halo Reach.

Xbox 360 can't find the disk


This happened to me a few times. if you bump onto the xbox with a game in it, it might make a circle scratch on it. Check for that, and if it isn't there, then mabe try cleaning the disk. I pour some water on the disk and then gently wipe it in a circle with a tissue.

Wont read disc,instead says open tray


Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.

Xbox 360 Will Not Play Games....


Try opening the disk tray with the 360 off. 05a1ed9.jpg Push a paper clip into 1 of these holes in your 360. It will pop the tray out. Grab the tray pull it out all the way. Put a game in, leave it open! Then turn your 360 on see if it boots the game.
"Your Disk tray might be going bad. It might be fixable but I will have to try it out on a bad drive which iI dont have at this time."
