First, there are a couple of different models of the 360, so this solution might not work for yours. Here is what I've found for you. GL and hope it helps.

Xbox 360s makes a weird sound when it reads a disc and shuts down


Sounds like the drive is very dirty, or going out. Try cleaning it, or just replace it.

It won't read disk say's open tray.tried clearing catch


I had this same problem a year after I purchased my first Xbox 3602_bing.gif. Most of the time this problem is due to dust and dirt getting sucked into the system by the terrible cooling system that the older Xbox 360s have. If your Xbox 360 is over 2 years old then most likely this is your problem. these Xboxes are made to stand up not lay down so if yours is laying down try tilting it upright and play it that way. This fixes the problem 80% of the time. You can also try to blow into some of the openings on your Xbox to get the dirt and dust out but I must admit this rarely works. If after trying both of these things you still have the problem, then it must be fixed by opening up the Xbox and determining the problem with the laser or disk drive. This costs time and money so you better hope that my first two solutions work!

My xbox wont read any movies or games it just keeps telling me to open the tray and i dont no what to do


This has been a problem with some 360s and it is usually the disk drive itself, if the game loads on a different 360 but yours won't, this is the case. If under warranty call xbox. if not you would need to replace it yourself or buy a new xbox. Their are various websites selling the drives.

Hi there my 360 is having some problems,when i put a game in it keeps on telling me to insert the disk into an xbox 360, or if the auto run option is off,then it will just say play dvd or open tray? after...


after taking the entire drive apart i found that the laser / moter assembly was offset. this ment that the disk was tilted 1degree towards the laser and intern hittng the laser assembly that so many peopl think is "laser burn" which actualy is the disk physically hitting the laser. how u fix this is as easy as adjusting two screws were the moter and the laser/ tray assembly meat. now thses arnt nomal phillips, flat head or torx scews. i found that stickin a drill bit in the screw head annd turnin it with some pliers did the trick. this fixes the open tray error for good unless the disk is causing it. IF anyone gets open tray ocasionally this should stop it for good. also try cleaning inside of drive make sure connection to drive is good. try turning the system on then emmidiatly opening and closing the tray a couple time.

Xbox says open tray when game is in


This means that either the lens inside it is scratched or dirty.(Some kind of compressed air can might work). Or the disk is scratched..;-; Damn 360s..

My xbox 360s isn't working


In very rare instances I believe that the dvd drive of your xbox 360 might have been disconnected.In this case,it dispays an "open tray" message.For this you will have to open your 360 but please take it to the dealer if you are still protected by warranty.Good luck.Thanks for reading.

Re: Blinking green light/won't detect disk drive


If you still have a warrenty sticker call up Microsoft and tell them that your Xbox 360 has overheated, and tell them your serial code. They will tell you if your warrenty is expired, if it's not they will ask you where you live then pick up your Xbox 360 and fix it for free. If your warrenty has expired try this. Power off the Xbox 360 and when it is off press the eject button, it might open they tray. Or try opening your Xbox 360 and remove the disk drives cables from the disk drive and the motherboard and put it back together, you should never try the towel trick really, although it works it can also give your Xbox 360 3 red lights then you have to buy X-clamps and theormo paste, just do the X-clamps and theormo paste when you get one red light. I have had two Xbox 360's, when I did the towel trick it burnt the GPU, the other one a little componante came loose, sorry for my spelling. Hope this helps =D

if it won't open, turn off the console and remove the faceplate and try to eject the button. if it still won't open get a paper clip and straighten it out. you need to locate a small hole that exactly fits a straightened paper clip. it's located just below the silver lining of the disc tray about one and a half (1 1/2") inch from the left side of the disc tray. insert the paper clip into that hole and it should pop up the disc tray enough for you to be able to pull the disc tray all the way.

if it doesn't work there are still 2 more small holes that you can locate. the 2nd one is just beside the first hole and the 3rd one is just under the second X on the XBOX 360 text on the disc tray. try those two holes if the first hole doesn't work.
