This sounds like a damaged or broken laser. This should be fixable by replacing the DVD drive, but this process WILL void your warrant (unless it has already been voided. If it has already been voided then full steam ahead with drive replacement.)

If you still have your warranty, then the best solution is to send it out to Microsoft for repair.

If your warranty is void, then replacing the drive will probably do the trick. It must be an xbox DVD drive. That is the only one that will work. They're on eBay for about $30, provided you can open an xbox and switch out the drives. If that doesn't work, then I'm stumped.

X box cant not rid the games ask m to hopen tray in all cd


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.
