SOURCE: XBOX 360 "Open Tray " message

Your CD/DVD drive has failed mechanically. Usually this is a physical problem where the disc is simply no longer in alignment with the laser. It does not necessarily mean something will make noise, and can be just one small part slightly bent or broken so the disk now moves freely top to bottom.

If you can do a warranty repair, you're set. But if you are no longer under warranty, you only have two options. you can try and replace the drive, which although odd shaped; I think is just a standard IDE drive, or you can shift the XBOX 90 degrees to Re-orient the box. In some cases this may let gravity hold in place what the internal mechanisms no longer are.

do you stand your xbox up? maybe for some reason the cd isn't sitting in the tray. if you have it vertical try laying it down and see if that still happens. hope i helped

It has a new scratch that happened when i pulled my controler by


When you pulled the controller, and the Xbox made the "weird noise" it was probably caused by the game sliding out of the tray. This can happen when a disk is spinning in the console and the console suddenly jerks in any direction.

HAWX open tray


If it says "reading" you just have to wait. H.A.W.X. is a big game.
If it says "open tray" you have to close the tray :)

Unless, Check the CD for scratches and marks, or else try the CD on another Xbox 360 console.

My xbox 360 keeps puting scratches on my games


check to see if anything is obscuring the disc tray on opening and closing.
If there isnt check the disc make sure its smooth and flat no bumps and not bent

if there is noises like grinding when playing it may be a part inside causing this

i suggest calling xbox because i dought u want to risk doing this to other games.

please rate. thank you

Your laser in your xbox has been moved, this is causing scratching once the disc heats up. you need to take it to get adjusted. Or if there is a sticker on something on the disc that may unbalance it, take it off.
