    I have the same problem with my Xbox 360.  It seems to be a problem with the older BenQ drives that Xbox included in their consoles around 06-07.  When it doesn't read the game I just eject it and then close the tray again and it reads.  Sometimes is does take a couple of trys but once you get the game running it works fine.

    Sometimes it takes dozens of tries before the game reads. Using a lens cleaner hasn't helped.

SOURCE: Open tray error on xbox 360

Mine had the same problem. On mine the spindle wasn't turning the game. It kept trying to then quit and said "Open Tray". The warranty was out so I took it apart opened the dvd drive and took apart the spindle. The grease in the spindle was black, I guess from all the heat. Cleaned it out and put some high temperature grease on spindle shaft and in the hole. It now spins with ease. There are videos on youtube on how to take apart the xbox and to take apart the dvd drive and spindle. Just pay close attention at how tight the screws the hold the spindle down are.I hope this helps

SOURCE: Xbox 360 Console Not Reading Discs

this could mean your laser is on its way out, but it could also mean it needs cleaning. the best way to
clean is to strip the machine down. strip the dvd drive down and get a cotton earbud.
spit on the earbud and very gently wipe the laser eye clockwise but dont press on too hard, very gently.

also get a clean paintbrush and give the drive casings a good clean.

this might help. there is also something else you can try and thats something called asjusting the 'pots',
this is a bit complicated for anyone not used to the process but i do have a guide if you want to have a
go yourself. what this does is adjust the laser power so its a full again just like it was when you first
bought it. (thats the easy explanation).

Just keep closing and opening the tray, sooner or later it should read the disk.

My xbox will not let me play any of my games when I put a game in it will read the disk for a few seconds then it wil say open tray does anyone know how to fix this.


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.

Xbox 360 reading error


Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
