Is there any game disc inside? If there is any, please try to remove it first. After removing the game disc, turn off your console, unplug from the power source then remove and reattach the hard drive. Make sure that you hear the clicking sound when you reattach your hard drive. Then plug the console again, turn it back on. Make sure that the console is well ventilated.

After turning on the console, go to the Memory, on the Xbox 360 Controller, press the following items in this sequence:
• X button
• X button
• Left bumper (LB)
• Right bumper (RB)
• X button
• X button
When you are prompted to confirm system maintenance, select Yes by pressing the A button. This will be clearing the cache of your xbox console.

If the game disc is still not reading, try cleaning your game disk or exchanging the disk at the retail store for another copy.

If the issue still persist, try answering the following: Do you receive an error message, does the console fully lockup, or does the action on screen slow down but the game still plays?

When i put i game on my Xbox360 it says clean the disk or restart the console.I did it but it is keep saying again. WHAT should i do.


I have never had a problem with my xbox DVD drive but a close friend of mine has had 2 xboxs that he has had to replace the disc drive 2 times each the only thing he could do to play a game before fixing was to just keep opening and closing the drive until it finally read the disc luckily he only plays COD so he just left it on 24/7 until repairs could be done

My xbox360 console will not read any disks. When I put the disk in all it says is "open tray" any ideas?


you need to purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem.

Open tray

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.

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. Sources: i am going through it right now internet my personal experience

My xbox360 is not reading discs.


It sounds like its the lense that isnt in the right place and it protruding to close to the disks wich maybe because you have dropped the xbox? or movede it with the game inside with the xbox turned on? which is causing the lines on the disk which in turn stops the xbox from reading the disks, there could be a number of reasons why, that is what i think. hope this helps, p.s. i would send it in as xboxes are complicated lol you may end up breaking it more.
