Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi, hope you can help, a week or so after my Warranty run out my xbox decided it would be a good time to stop reading my discs and showing error messages. After doing some research on the net it look like the ideal thing would be to replace the lens, which i did, fitted it all myself and it worked again. Now last night it has decided to stop working again, i put the discs in and all it does is load the 360 menu screen up so i go to open tray put my disc in, it starts reading but doesn't load, i have tried taking the drive out and cleaning the lens in case it had some dirt on, but still not working, also when it stopped, the back of the 360 did feel hot, can you help at all ?
I took mine apart and cleaned the laser itself with a cue tip > its housed within the disc tray. It works every time it says the "insert disc" on me. If you have no warranty then just do that.
YouTube how to take apart an Xbox 360. Very very easy to get it working again once it's cleaned up.

The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
