AVOID blowing into the disc tray or on your games. Moisture is BAD for any electronics and blowing on them will result in moisture. Chances are you have a dirty laser (buy a laser lens cleaner) or a buggy Xbox (all too common) If your Xbox is still under warranty I would suggest you make use of that warranty and please STOP blowing on stuff. Cheers!

Once my game is loaded into tray the screen comes up and tells me to open back up and close again. This occurs all the time not just with one game. Any suggestions???


Yes. First when the tray is opened watch the green light . It should
blink then stay on steady.
When the tray is closesing you should see a blinking
green light in the center of the ring of lights .When the tray
is fully closed and engaged the light will stop blinking then you
should hear the drive spin-up. If not open the tray then close
it ,just as the tray is almost closed push it close hard then the
green flashing light should be steady on.

This is cause mostly by friction in the drive or a bent
leaf switch that the tray engages to tell the console
the state of the tray .

The remedy is either you or a shop
will need to open the drive and remove the frictions
points which very from drive to drive. and check the
leaf switches . cost 40.00 or so . or you could
simply buy a "new" drive on ebay and swap the
Drives P.C. board from the old drive to the new one
price 40.00 but you supply the labor.

I gave you more info than you need but this is
common problem and I hope it will help others also

If you have any questions please feel free to ask

My xbox keeps telling me to open the tray and wont play the game. i blew it out,turned the power off and on.can anyone help


X-box's are notorious for having bad hardware. Chances are, the drive is faulty. You may need to have it serviced or replaced. If you still have a warranty on your 'Box, I would suggest calling Microsoft and discussing this more in depth with them. Good luck!

Blinking green light


The blinking green light is because your 360 is not understanding that the disc tray is closed. That's also the reason that the tray comes back open. It's not getting fully closed. Next time you insert a gamepush the drive closed with your hand. You'll know the drive is closed when the light stops blinking.

"Disk is unreadable"


Since CDs and CD-R's work fine, its probably that the disc tray of your xbox 360 is not working. you might wanna try contacting xbox customer support to check the warranty status of your console. might as well send it in for repairs
