Hey mate, i have the same problem, i know how to solve it.. my xbox just got 3 red rings and seeing where i can help myself. But, what u need to do, is when ur disc tray starts to close when there is a game in there, tap on the top of the xbox where the disc is. Dont tap too hard, just when its not working, try a little harder. If u dont believe me, type it in on youtube. Good luck mate :)

Just keep closing and opening the tray, sooner or later it should read the disk.

SOURCE: when i put a game in my xbox 360 it says reading then open tray

I found a solution that works for me after a long period of time with this problem.

Get an air spray canister (just compressed air), open your Xbox's game tray, take the disc out, then spray the air along the tray, moving side to side inside the Xbox. You may want to spray into the vents, too, just to be sure.

This worked for me, and it was the only thing that worked for me. I had already tried hitting the console with the controller (gently), and doing the stuff Microsoft recommends etc.

If that doesn't work, you could try gently knocking the top of the Xbox with your conroller, when you put the disc in, as I've heard that works for some people.

Another thing that works for some people is taking the disc out, closing the tray, then when it goes to Open Tray, open the tray, put the disc back in and then closing the tray again.

Firstly keep getting open tray when disc is already in & now getting a solid red ring coming & going.


The open tray error indicates that you need your DVD drive replaced. If you are under your 1 year warranty go to www.xbox.com/support and fill out a repair request there. If you are out of warranty then I suggest getting the replacement done by a knowledgeable professional. If you are uncertain as to what you are doing it's very likely that even with a "Successful" repair your 360 will never play games again.


If you are getting 4 red lights that indicates that your AV cable is not properly inserted into the 360.
