Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Games wont play

When i put in the game, it just comes up as open tray, when open it, it says close tray. So i closed the tray and it says "reading disc". Then it just keeps repeating that process. What is wrong and what do i have to do?

    At any point in time, did you get a possible SINGLE red light on the console? Usually when the console is having difficulty, it can usually mean things like the laser/disk is dirty. The disk could be scratched. Also if you got a single red light, thats usually an indication of a single hardware failure (possibly the dvd-rom drive). do you have your console upright or on its side? have you tried cleaning/dusting your console?

    Is the game badly scratched/damaged? This is the most common cause of getting the constant reading disc message.

Open/Close tray message


This means that you need your DVD drive replaced. If you are under your 1 year warranty from MS go to www.xbox.com/support and fill out a repair request. If you are out of warranty make sure that you only let an experienced professional perform this repair. If you do the repair on your own, or have someone that doesn't know what they are doing do it then it's very likely your Xbox will never play games again. There is vital information on the old DVD drive that must be extracted and put into the replacement in order for your 360 to allow it to play games. I can do this repair for you if you'd like. Email me at Jordan@jordanselectronics.com for more info.

MY GAMES WONT LOAD


you need to unplug ever cable you have and every accessory you have. Unplug adapters memory units hd inter coolers every thing. let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug everything back in then press the button to open the tray to turn it on then put in a different game keep it open . Then when the menu comes go into a program so you can't see play game or close tray. Then when you are in the right place close the tray and it should load. This worked for me 2 times.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

HAWX open tray


If it says "reading" you just have to wait. H.A.W.X. is a big game.
If it says "open tray" you have to close the tray :)

Unless, Check the CD for scratches and marks, or else try the CD on another Xbox 360 console.
