Hello.

The laser of the DVD-drive has become weak, this is a clear sign for that and quite common for the Xbox's drives.
You can either pay Microsoft to fix it for you, will likely be around 60-90$ or repair it on your own.
In order to repair it yourself you will have to open your console up and then tweak the DVD-Drives laser after that it should read all games again this works in 90% of the cases.

Here are the links to the tutorials that you will need:

Good luck!

Kind regards,

Got a xbox 360 and i put a game in then it tells me to open tray so i open then close then tells me to open again and it just keep doing that i cant play anything


Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.

· Note Use ONLY water to clean the disc.

· Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your console and see if the disc plays.

Xbox 360 open tray message; not reading discs


If it won't play any games it might be the laser that reads the disk. I would suggest getting it checked out somewhere.

Xbox will will not play any games or DVD's.


try putting the game disc into your game console and close the lid with your hand without pressing the close lid button. hold the disc tray with your hand and turn off the game console. Turn on the game console. If problem still persists try cleaning the xbox with a blower or a vaccum. Pm me if problem still continues. Thank you .
