Xbox 360 open tray prolem, for only 1 game, which works fine on--

My Xbox 360 is not reading Call of Duty 4, even though it reads it perfectly fine on my brothers console and its not my Xbox 360 because it reads all my others games 100% fine. Any tips on what i should do to fix this problem? (by the way im not good at taking apart the Xbox 360 or anything so if theres any cleaning stuff just guide me on it) Thanks

    What does your 360 say/do when you put the game in?

    if its just that one game i would try getting it cleaned. make sure there are no scratches on the disc itself. ive seen a game load on 1 xbox 360 and not others. its sometimes either scratches, or down to the dvd rom.

    adjusting the laser (turning power up) may help. is it an original game or copy. dont be afraid to say - it helps us pinpoint your problem.

    Have you used your own gamertag when you tried to access the game using your brother's console? Because it could be your account that is having an issue and not the gamedisc nor the console.

You can get the disk cleaned for a few bucks by taking it to Best Buy and they have special machines that clean it. Some video rental store also clean discs.

My xbox 360 elite keeps on saying open tray even though i have a game in i would open it than it would read for about 2 seconds than say open tray again and i dont want to take it apart to void my warranty


The warranty on the XBox 360 is ONE YEAR. If you have had it for more than a year, there is no more warranty to be void. You can open it.

The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

You can click into the following website for more information, as well as parts to fix this issue:

Xbox 360 not reading discs


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1. Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser. The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is... with all the hours and hours of gameplay, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

http://store.richspsxparts.com/xb360ac.html

3. Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything, including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock. The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

Not reading the games


Your DVD-ROM drive has failed. I had this same issue about a year ago.You will need to call the XBOX support line if your system is still within the manufacturers warranty. 1 800 4MY XBOX If they will be doing the repairs you will normally get your system back within 3-4 weeks.

Xbox WONT read call of duty 4


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.
