Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Won`t play games

My sons x box 360 keeps ejecting discs when trying to load them ,
sometimes ejecting them all the way other times only partly ejecting them.
The on switch at the bottom of the console which controls the four segments of the controllers is lit correctly, but on closing the drawer the centre light is flashing     Hope you can help, we seem to have misplaced the manuals.

The xbox 360 elites keeps on saying open tray when trying to play

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) ,


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

Disc keeps ejecting

Sounds like your disc drive is malfunctioning. Honestly the only thing i could possibly think of is that the button for the disc drive could've gotten stuck and opens the 360 by any sudden movements.

Unreadable disk

Have you tried ejecting the disc but not quitting out the game, wiping the disc and then putting it back in, it should say something like please insert disc, it may work, it does on the ps3

Disc won't eject & stops working

your disc tray is jamming on an intermittent fault and when it does work it is recording each time the eject botton is being pressed so when your watching movies or playing games it tries to eject the disc tray and causes an automatic shutdown it will definately neet proffesionally repaired and should cost about 30-40 pounds and get a guarantee with it bacause these faults can come back to haunt you.

My xbox is making a noise when i put in a disc and some times it stops and the game plays but when i eject it it starts again also it sometimes doesnt read the disc and the unreadable disc screen comes up....

Well, with xbox I'm not to sure, but play station2 my son stepped on his and it didn't read the disk that was in it, but it played others, just is very noisy now, you could try contacting microsoft, they are very helpful with refunds -

For more microsoft support you either contact them live through computer, email, or phone,
