Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

My 360 will not read ANY disc

Well I open the tray and insert ANY disc and it will not read you hear a slight spin up sound and then it reads open tray as if i never inserted a disc at all. After opening and closing the tray about 30-40 times sometimes it wil finally pick it up and play fine but that is a VERY rare occasion. If it makes a difference it started this after an update from xbox live. About the 3rd update ever recieved. please any help would be appreciated. I would just send it back to microsoft but i'm not sure the warranty is still valid seeing as i bought it from the orginal owner and not retail.

Well, a good start is to clean the drive.  Any cd/dvd lens cleaner will work.  If you are still having problems, there are other places that will repair them fairly cheap if they are out of warranty.  From my understanding, the warranty is non-transfereable.  The person you bought it from still is covered though.  As far as info about updates messing up the dvd drive, there was an issue with the fall update, but that was a few years back.  Have you tried to re-update your xbox?

My xbox 360 will not read the disks i put into it. it is like it isn't reading that there is a disk in in the tray. it says open tray then close tray over and over again. it wont spin the disk to read it.


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.

    The best way to resolve this problem is to replace the entire drive - you can get a replacement drive online. Use Google to find several vendors to choose from. It sound like the laser lens is trying to focus but cannot and thus you hear the lens rubbing against the disc - this can ruin many of your valuable games you have recently inserted in the drive. DO NOT INSERT ANYMORE DISC INTO IT!

    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.

    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.

    Wont read games. Console says insert game into xbox 360 or open tray.


    you might need to clean your laser, if they get dirty from playing games they won't read anything. When you put a game in the laser flashes once to read what type of disc is in, if its dirty it wont read anything and thinks there is no disc in it. If cleaning it dosen't help then you might just have to replace the laser. They aren't overly expensive and they are pretty easy to install as well.

    My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!


    This most likley a weak laser .
    8 mw 633 nm laser diodes fail in stages
    as they get weaker the cd ups voltage
    to the laser diode till you get to full gain, affter that
    it's time for a new laser .Good news
    there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
    hard to swap out yourself .
