Its a dead laser, you need to replace it changing the ohms wont make a difference if the laser is dead.

SOURCE: New Xbox 360 disk drive doesn't play games

well my friend thats because each xbox 360 drive is unique for each console so it only works on the original console, to solve this you have to flash the firmware from the old drive and put it the new one, there are many sites explaining it just google it.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 disk spins while ejecting

i had this same problem, so i figured, "what the hell?" i might as well open the dvd drive up and clean it out. so i looked for how to video for taking apart my 360 and opening the dvd drive on you tube( this voids your warantee of course) and i cleaned all the dust out with compressed air and swabs dipped in alchohol. this worked for me so i hope it works for you.

SOURCE: 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.

My xbox reads : The disk is unreadable Clean the disc with soft cloth. Restart the console. I have already done that and nothing happens.


Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working , if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. hence the rejection but the best is for cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without any pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive , if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.
Finally try to see if the set records on a DVD with a given siganl source. If not the fault is confirmed.
But if any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilites of the processor board

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

How do i clean xbox 360 len?, xbox keeps saying my disk needs cleaning, the disk is spot-less, after 3/4 of an hour (appox), it loads the game. Thanks.


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Their are four ribbon cables inside one for the laser, one to open, one to spin the disk and one for power sometimes one of these might come lose. Or maybe even the laser has gone out but try in that order cables first, once the disk drive is opened then check for the laser turning on without starring directly into it you should see a red light of course. A new laser goes from 15 to 40 bucks depending on the type of drive you have check ebay first.

Disk wont spin


are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong.
1.you need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser.
2.is the laser focusing (moving up and down)
3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up )
4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd
5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol
