Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox 360 Wont Read Games or DVD's

We left the Xbox 360 on overnight, with a game running. In the morning, after somebody else had turned it off during the night/early morning, we turned it back on and now it wont read any games or DVDs. No red rings.
When a disc in inserted it attempts to read it and then just comes up with "open tray" as if nothing is there

Yes if your Xbox 360 is not reading your games this is normally nothing to do with the laser, but more to do with the sensors on the back of the DVD drive getting too hot you need to send it in or repair it yourself using a good guide.

The xbox 360 wont work

This is because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have heated up and you need to stop the heat, you can do this yourself or you can send it in.
