If you here it spin up and it goes to open tray
you probley have a dead laser or hub/spindel motor. Its an easy swap for the laser. if the
spindel motor is weak ,your going to have to
replace the drive and swap the board.

Below the drive tray there is a tiny hole, straighten a paper clip and gently insert the paper clip into this hole. Push the paper clip and the tray will release and pop out, then pull the tray out to the fully open position.

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?


The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

My 360 does not read disc, everytime i place disc in ,it says open tray


I fixed this for me today. I opened the tray, and took the disk out. Just inside in the middle there is a small disk that rotates. I just rotated it a little with my finger to get it moving. Once it started spinning the disk tray closed on its own. I then put a disk in and it started reading it. I guess the piece that moves the disk got stiff and just needed some assistance. Hope this helps.

It wont read my disc it sits there and doesnt attempt to read any disc it says open tray how can i fix this?


Ahhhhhh This is a fun one! Ok here is the first thing you should do. Put a disk in the tray and keep in mind the position it is facing. Close the tray and wait for your system to say open tray now open the tray and examine the disc. Let me know if it is in the same position and we'll go from there!

As soon as i turn on my 360 the disk tray light wont stop blinking and disks wont read


Listen close and see if you hear the tray motor running. If you do then, most likely, the belt and pulleys that move the disk tray are dirty. Which might also explain not being able to read disks. Here's what to do: Pull the face plate off of the 360. This will NOT void your warranty. Beneath the disc tray (look under and "into" the tray) you should see a gear wheel on your left side. Push eject. Use a toothpick (or similar object) to turn that gear from left to right. Keep turning and the tray should pop open. Unplug (WITHOUT turning off) the 360. Pull the disk tray to full extention and look through the slot in the center of it. You'll see the belt and pulleys. Tweeze the belt out small pulley first clean the belt & pullies w/alcohol. Put belt on big pulley first. Then run a lens cleaner disk when you get it opening again.

Mine wont read discs or anything it usually reads


jah23,
Check your laser eye to be sure nothing is covering it. Something could have come off the disk ( small piece of paper) and may be covering the eye. Wash your disk too. Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.
