Ok, this is optical lens assembly failure. the lens is burned out and unable to scan due to lens failure. simply replacing the dvd rom optical lens assembly will restore the reading ability of your unit.

    If you were to purchase the optical lens assembly , this will cost about 30.00. if you just want to buy the complete DVD ROM drive as a whole with the optical assembly already installed, this will top off at about 60.00.

    The 360 parts are a little higher tan my quote but, this site has the best warranty.

    I would just replace the entire drive. this way, you can get a fresh load motor and optical lens assembly in a whole. the 60.00 is the better buy.

    If this unit has never been opened for any type of repair, yes. this will void your warranty. if the warranty is still viable, i would advise contacting Microsoft for this repair. i don't think the optical assembly is cover because of its status as a perishable device but, to answer your question correctly, yes. it will void the manufactures warranty.

  • Michael Masters

    I would call Microsoft in this case. you don't want to void the warranty. If you get the 3 rings of death, the warranty will cover this. it will not cover the 3 rings if you open the console.

    it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip
    connected directly to the AV cable). it is a known GPU fault in many of the earlier 360 board designs. its covered by the warranty as long as you don't open the console.

Screen says my disc is unreadable. I have tried using a scratched disc cleaner and I have shut down the console but nothing has worked, what should I try next?


Check to make sure that you can not see the disk physically damaged. If your xbox tipped over with a game in it and you heard it scratch han the disk is ruined and unplayable.

Disk unreadable but clean disk not scratached


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOmNtrStDgM
Turned on your Xbox 360 console one day and and when you try to play your game you got the message "This disc is unreadable" OR "Unplayable disc".....??
First determine whether it's a fault with the disc or not, by having a look on the disc itself & make sure it's not scratched and there are no flaws even on it, and try other game discs on your Xbox 360 console .
If your disc is scratched or have flaws try putting other discs in your Xbox 360 console just to make sure it's the disc not the actual console causing the error, If other disc are working fine, refer to the scratched discs page on our website to know what are the steps you have to follow to get it sorted out.
If the disc is not scratched and doesn't have any flaws on it, cleaning the disc and trying it once more may solve the issue, if that doesn't work try to check it by putting other discs in your Xbox 360 console, if they all work that would be definitely a fault with the disc itself and in a case like this you have the right to exchange it from the retailer you bought it from as it's not scratched.
In all cases if other game discs are giving you the same error message "This disc is unreadable" OR "Unplayable disc" you need then to contact Xbox 360 customer support to send your console to get repaired or exchanged.

My xbox keeps saying unreadable disk when i put in saints row 2


Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on.
Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it.
And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive.
If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.

My 360


to be honest it sounds like you drive has gone, unfortunately there isn't alot you can do for this problem, is just happens from time to time especially with the older core console.
send it back to microsoft, they will fix it or replace your console.


hope this helps
