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.

My xbox wont read disks it takes the disk then says reading and goes right back to open trey none of the games work the xbox is like a year old

There is a very complicated process that you can go through taking your xbox apart and replacing the drive, but I just kept pressing open tray and it will say reading and then if it doesn't work just keep doing it. I pressed open tray about 40 times and eventually I heard the motor begin to run. Just keep doing it. If it doesn't work after maybe the 75th time (and I'm being serious), then you just need to send it to microsoft for repair. If this does work please contact me at because I would like to know that it works so I can help other people with this problem. Goodluck and thank you!!! :D

It will not read my disk

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Xbox wont read disk

There may be something wrong with your disk. If you still have your receipt go exchange it with another copy.
