The reason why its doing that is because the laser is to weak to read any cd's or dvd's.

If you have a can of air. you can try blowing out the inside of the drive to make sure that dust or dirt isn't in the way of the laser.

If that doesn't work then you can do a search on Ebay to get a new laser if your handy with tools you can replace it on your own or you can go on ebay and get a whole new drive but that would cost more money.

Either way the drive is the culprit.

I put game disc into xbox it wont play but keeps telling me to open tray


its an error, it sounds silly but put the disk in and when it says reading hit the xbox on the vents by the harddrive. if this doesn't work try a few other games, once one works put the one you originally wanted to play back in.

When i put a gme in it wont play the game. it only says play divd and then it brings up the xbox screen and wont do anything else.


your dvd board is damaged, therefore resulting in your xbox reading it as a dvd. it's the same thing with it saying open tray, except that your dvd board might be reading it wrong. try to spin the spinner while closing the tray. it might work, but if you want to get it fixed correctly i would want to send it in if i was you. and spin it like 5-10 times if it doesnt work the first 2-3.

Your DVD drive's laser is malfunctioning.

You have a few options:

1) Decrease the resistance on the laser to increase power, and it may be able to read the discs again. A guide for that can be found here.

2) If that doesn't work, or you do not wish to do that, you can replace the laser head all together. Replacements can be found on eBay. You can follow this guide to replace the laser head.

3) You can replace the DVD drive completely, but it will require taking the original drive's firmware and putting it on the replacement one. The guide for that can be found here.

Xbox does not read discs.


Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
