Xbox 360 tray will work but wont read any discs .discs are spinning but wont play keeps comming open tray


Ok 90% of the time your console gives you the open tray icon when it tries spinning clean disks is because the laser has gotten to weak to read them. Your options are buy a new dvd drive or pot tweaking the laser which is relatively easy if you are not afraid to go hands on with electronics.
here is a good video on the tools you will need to open your xbox http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtm7V4NotgA
Now first i would try cleaning it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtm7V4NotgA
if that doesnt work I would recommend pot tweaking and here is a tutorial for that http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/93454-how-to-pot-tweak-xbox-360-dvd-drives/
honestly if you do not know much about electronics I would recommend just buying a new xbox dvd drive for like 20 bux off of ebay. But you will still have to open the xbox to figure out what drive you have and to actually swap it

My xbox morks fine the only problem i have is that


try replugged in all your cords and cables
if that doesn't work your game might be scratched bad
or your dvd drive's censor is dirty
i dont recommend opening your console to clean it because that voids your warranty.

KEEP SAYING UNPLAYABLE DISC My xbox 360 keeps reading unplayable discs but if i sit there long enough and keep turning it on and off, it will work. But after doing it for half an hour it gets really...


Sounds like the laser is starting to go bad in your dvd drive if it has to read it a few times before it might see the discs.

The laser is inside of the dvd drive and it looks like this:

Depending on the manufacturer of the drive will depend on the laser you will need to get.

You could also take a can of air in the meantime and blow some into the drive to make sure that there is no dust or dirt on the laser as this could cause that message as well.

Xbox 360 doesnt read games but reads dvds


Your laser is bad in the drive. When it comes to reading games, DVd's, music cds, it requires a different strength from the laser in your dvd rom in order to read them. If it can't read all types then the laser is definitely bad and you can either replace just the laser or the whole drive.
