My xbox 360 wont read the disc?

the laser lens needs clean, or adjusting which would require you to open up console and disk drive. there are 2 tiny screws on the lens which adjust for watching dvds and games the right hand side screws needs to be turned ever so slightly. or you may need a new laser lens all together. look at youtube for some help.

Some games work but my halo reach game will not and it has no visible scratches, my xbox will either think it is a dvd or it will simply go to the white xbox 360 screen and stay there or it will say open...

I here similar problems a lot. There are two likely causes for this issue-

1) The disc may be damaged although you stated there are no visible scratches. Halo Reach has a lot of information so even the smallest scratches can make a difference. I'm not sure what the white stuff is but I suggest cleaning the surface lightly with a wet cloth, or taking the game to your nearest video game retailer such as Gamestop so they can clean it.

2) This could also be a result of an issue with your xbox 360 laser. Many 360's exspecially the older models have issues with their lasers, you said "some games work," if only some do then I'm guessing its an issue with the laser. The best thing you can do from home is to blow air into your xbox 360 from any openings (disc tray, or through the vent) if you have a can of compressed air that is the best way.

Note: Also ensure your xbox is not being overheated from where it is at. I also suggest laying it down, as it is actually better for the system in the long run. If neither options work call the Microsoft technical support, they may have better information.

Open Tray error on Xbox 360. Out of warranty so

tap the top above the drive while its loading, or take it apart if its a benq take the drive apart on the back side of the drive while still being inside of the enclosure there are two screw like objects the one on the left turn it to the left until it stops that should fix it

Xbox Will Not Read Any Thing I Put in it

i had the same problem with my xbox, i actually picked it up free because of that, when i got it home i tried cleaning the tray with the cd with little brushes on the bottom and that didnt do any good. i had to manually open the xbox 360 and then open the tray aswell, you can see on youtube how to open a 360 properly, its actually very easy, and then you actually open the tray and clean the laser eye with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol, its a few t9 screws to remove the xbox from the case and then 4 small star screws to open the tray and clean it, put it back together and it will run asgood as the day you bought it

if you need more details repost on this with your questions and i will answer them all

--that goes for anybody who needs a hand with a 360, i brought mine back from the 3 red rings of death 4 times without having to pay a hefty microsoft repair bill, just 6.00 for a few things that i needed to redo a few chips on the motherboard, if you need help i will do my best to help you--

(wish i had someone to help me when me and my wife figured this out):D

There are two things that could be wrong that involve dismantling your console. If you warranty has not expired send it to microsft at
if it has then you should firmly reconnect the sata cable, The black and white wire leading to back of your drive. You can manually open your disc drive to unjamm it. Once your console is open there is a small black cog at the front. if you turn that cog clockwise it should unjam it.
Hope this works
