Xbox 360 games not reading disk

When I put a game in the xbox 360 it makes 2 wierd noises and the game just stops! Then I opened the xbox 360 by myself even tho im only 15 i went on utube and it showed me how to open it. When I opened it a wire was out so i plugged it back in and also it was real dirty inside so i blew it out with a air hose.After i played it again it worked but only for a month and now its doing the same **** again.

Probably bad drive. since you opened, you cannot have fixed unless you pay up. my advice, go online and search for the EXACT same dvd drive and order it. then search a video on youtube on how to replace it. replacement drive should run you about 30-40 bucks depending on brand and where you get it.

My xbox 360 fell and now it won't read a certain game.


obviously when it "fell" its broken something inside, if its still under its 1st year in warrenty, i would send it to microsoft and say that it just stopped working, but it could be a many thing causing the problem, if you dont wanna wait for microsoft, find a local man in your area who specialises in fixing xbox's.

My xbox is not reading any of my games. i put in a game and it tries to read it but it makes a wierd noise and then just says to open tray.


This a a problem with the firmware. The laser lens circuit and motor have an instability problem. Sometimes this is caused by a motherboard failure but not always. Sometimes just the laser needs to be replaced. You can find them on ebay and many other sites.

When your son knocked the console over, he may have broke a component connecting to the disk drive, especially if the console was on.
