    Mine does the same and have to open and close it about 10 times till it works.Worst thing is, it started doing this at about 2 weeks from when I bought it and supposedly it's the new 360 that don't heat up as much.

Disk tray is not spinning


The way to fix this is to open the disk tray and blow inside for about thirty seconds getting the dust out of the way of the laser also blow across the disc tray and the surface of the disk. Then keep closing and opening the tray and it will start to read hopefully. if this does not work go out and buy a disc cleaner. it looks like a disc with sponges on it and when you insert it into the console it cleans the inside for you.

It wont read my disc it sits there and doesnt attempt to read any disc it says open tray how can i fix this?


Ahhhhhh This is a fun one! Ok here is the first thing you should do. Put a disk in the tray and keep in mind the position it is facing. Close the tray and wait for your system to say open tray now open the tray and examine the disc. Let me know if it is in the same position and we'll go from there!

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.

READING DISC OPEN TRAY!!!!


I took a small coffee straw and put some liquid silicone in it and stuck it through the front disc tray carefully to the small engine in the back. Hold your finger over the back of the straw so that the liquid stays in until you are over the engine top.Then I put in a disc cleaning disc for about 10 sec and then put in saints row 2 and it hasn't said "open tray" for about two weeks and counting.....

My disks dont read. my xbox 360 read the disks fr a few secs then it says open tray


Look carefully at the disc check to see if there are any "fatal" scratches. Some scratches to close to the center of the disc preventing the system form reading the volume information.
