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.

I close my tray with a game in it my xbox would read any game my xbox said open tray


I had the same problem with one of my games. It's probably just not reading the disk because of scratches or other damage. If it happens with every game you try then it's a problem with the sensor in the disk tray.

My xbox 360 will not read the disks i put into it. it is like it isn't reading that there is a disk in in the tray. it says open tray then close tray over and over again. it wont spin the disk to read it.


Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.

· Note Use ONLY water to clean the disc.

· Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your console and see if the disc plays.

I hate microsoft


This is annoying and i think you should try a disc cleaner to get rid of hidden dust or the disc could just have formatted itself

System will not read disk. keep getting open tray


Your system can possibly be dusty inside or the disk may be scratched real bad. Buy a keyboard airbrush can and spray the air inside to see if you can clean it.

Its the Disk Drive, its not able to read it because something got in there and scratched the reader, or its just old and broke. but a new disk drive will fix the problem.

My xbox disk wont read it just keeps sayin open tray and my disk is not scratched


ok i had this too. what you do is take the disk out. then you turn off the xbox. wait for a couple seconds and turn the xbox on. wait until the dashboard pops up and then put the disk in. it should work fine.

My disks dont read. my xbox 360 read the disks fr a few secs then it says open tray


Look carefully at the disc check to see if there are any "fatal" scratches. Some scratches to close to the center of the disc preventing the system form reading the volume information.
