Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I put i games and dvds in and it just says "open tray". I have had the 360 elite about 3 months ago. what is going on? what should I do?
I've figured it out!All you need to do is make sure there's no game inside of your 360 (for this to work it need's te be turrn it off) take the HDD off the top of your console then turn it back on (without the HDD) then put the HDD back on top of your 360 and put your game back in.If it doesn't work the first time,do it twice or thrice or more.

Ok guys, I have a Solution to this. If you have your Xbox near any Kind of magnets such as huge Magnets like Speaker for Sub magnets it can disrupt the spinning process of the CD because the CD spinner is Magnetized. So any magnets bigger then your small xbox magnets can Possibly disprupt the magnets in the Xbox...sooo keep those Xboxes away from Huge magnets...also you might want to take apart your 360 to get at the cd spinner THIS WILL BREAK YOUR WARRENTY...JUST A WARNING!...anyways when you take it apart to get to the DvD drive..take that apart to get to the laser area...ok...when you've done make sure you put the bottom cover of the DVD drive back on, connect the wires back on to the DVD drive, place back in 360 and plug it back in...don't worry about putting the 360 back together just yet...plug in the component cables again and see if the cd spins yet...if not help it spin while its trying to read this will help the spinner get back to spinning lol...anyways try this and if it starts spinning again your good to go, put your dvd drive back together place it properly in the 360 and put the 360 back together again...Oh if the spinner starts to **** a bit if doing this like it tries to go but it doesnt then take the disc out and put the top back on and put a disc in it should run now ...:) have fun

Here is what I found to be a long term solution,turn the game off and take your vaccum and vaccum out your console from where the tray opens, just vaccum it out for a minute or so and it gets the little particles of dust of your laser eye, just watch how much better it works!!I wouldn't have tried it except my brother in law works for Microsoft and he told me the trick!! Game on!!
