Disc drive makes clicking noise like the laser is stuck


I would go to xbox.com and go to their support page, and if it is under warranty you can send back your broken xbox and they will send you a new one in about two weeks.

Problems with xbox reading disc?


Two options either buy your self some laser clearner
or buy your self a new laser lens it will probably end up cheaper to get a new laser lens, But if you cant fit the lens then you stuck with using the cleaner.

Xbox will not read disc. When I plug in the Xbox it powers on fine. I insert the disc and close the draw. monitor still show me the draw is open.


It sounds like your DVD drive's laser is malfunctioning. Either that or the tray is not closing all the way. You'll have to open up your console and see if the tray is stuck. If it's not stuck, it's the DVD drive's laser.

You have a few options:

1) Decrease the resistance on the laser to increase power, and it may be able to read the discs again. A guide for that can be found here.

2) If that doesn't work, or you do not wish to do that, you can replace the laser head all together. Replacements can be found on eBay. You can follow this guide to replace the laser head.

3) You can replace the DVD drive completely, but it will require taking the original drive's firmware and putting it on the replacement one. The guide for that can be found here.

Disc is stuck in my sons xbox360, is there anything i can do without having to send it to germany, im uk, thanks


Hi Jim,
I can see how your son might have felt missing his fav games for the day, apparently the only possible solution would be to open the XBOX and removing the disc manually. Make sure that the warranty sticker is not torn or scratched while you do this process.
And if you are not confident then I would recommend you to fedex it to Germany Hope this helps

Xbox 360 can't read any disc


This happens when the laser has blown or at the end of its lifespan, replacement lasers will fix this problem or if its possible maybe a re-alignment would also make it work again. Replacing the part is very easy and yoou can find the lasers on ebay for around £15. If you get stuck and need help we offer a full repair service www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

My xbox 360


Hello brian, i had the exact same problem with my xbox 360 and it is not your tv , it is simply the laser lens inside the disc drive. here are the steps you need to follow:
1)you need to take off the faceplate,
2)you need to pull the disc drive out, it will slide out easily, if the disc drive is stuck tap quite vigourosly on the top of the case (trust me it will not get damaged) while pulling out the disc drive.
3)open the disc drive and then take out the laser's lens and give it a good clean. the laser sometimes gets very dirty from sucking in dust particles from the air.
if this guide doesent help email me on: curious_meeee@hotmail.com
regards caitlyn crighton
