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.

This is caused by the laser not being fully seated in the CD/DVD ROM on the console. I recently had that problem and I took apart my xbox opened up the dvd rom and gentley pushed the laser assembly back to the reset position which is in the center. Once I did this all my games worked fine.

SOURCE: xbox 360 open tray message; not reading discs

If it won't play any games it might be the laser that reads the disk. I would suggest getting it checked out somewhere.

My xbox keeps saying open tray I brought it to a guy twice and no fix everytime I put a game or movie in it it reads and says open tray


Reasons

1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

My 360 dose not read discs but it dose spin them


Disc Error :- I have the same error. You can do 4 things.

A) You have to keep turning it on and off. Here's how... Turn it on, then click open tray then close tray ( keep opening and closing tray about 10 times) then turn the console off. Then keep repeating process for about 15-20 minutes and eventually the game disc will show up. ( I have to do this every time)

B) Make sure that this is covered by Microsof't's RROD warranty. Then some how get teh red rings on this console and send it to Microsoft. (Note: I am not held responsible for your actions.)

C) This is a lens problem. So go out to a store and buy a DVD lens cleanser. It's a disc that cleans the lenses of the DVD or the XBOX.

D) Open it up and replace the lens (like the above guy said) (much harder and more costly).


Pls rate my solution if it did help thanks.
