I had this problem 4 months.I bought disk, lense cleaner. Did not work.
OPEN TRAY CAME UP WHEN PLAYING EVERYTHING!!! I MEAN EVERYTHING.

Was about to scrap my box COMPLETELY

Listen I took my XBOX apart. cleaned the lense with rubbing alcohol. USED AIR DUSTER TO CLEAN THE INNER WORKINGS COMPLETELY.

THIS WILL VOID THE WARRANTY ON YOUR X BOX.

I DID NOT CARE N DID IT + my system works as if I bought it yesterday.

BEST SOLUTION

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 put in a disc. it says reading then goes back to open tray. Help me.


Hello,

The most common reason for the Console saying reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Console including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Console going again!

Hope it works...

When I insert a disk it reads and says open tray


Either the laser or the main board inside of the dvd drive is bad. If you dont feel comfortable taking apart the dvd drive then go on Ebay and try to find a replacement. Thats usually a good place to find one at a decent price. If you have some technical experience then get a replacement laser for the drive.

360 won,t read disk


Sounds like your laser has died, or your drives spindel motor not allowing the console to recognize any form of media.

We offer competitivley priced repairs and a 12 month warranty on all new lasers.

Xbox 360 open tray


You can try a new laser but usually if the laser is bad it will not spin the disk. It sounds to me that the DVD mech board is bad and since it is married to the motherboard you can't buy a new one without out getting the pair together.

The disk drive on my new advent 5311 laptop will not read any disk i insert into it, instead it will just ask me to insert a cd into the drive when there already is one.


Your disk drive cannot read cd at all, that why it keeps asking to insert cd. Just simply return back where your laptop bought. I think the have warranty of it, it will be replaced for the defective disk drive.
