HI. the optical Assembly inside the DVD-ROM drive has failed. replacing the entire drive will fix this issue. You can also replace the assembly as well. this is more expensive and costly.

I recommend replacing the DVD-ROM drive.

the thing is, there can be 2 things.

  • The motor that spins the discs has gone bad. you cant do anything then, just pay the local dealer 20$, he'll fix it for ya

SOURCE: I turn on my xbox 360 and it says open tray and wont read disc

I have had this happen about 3 times. The first time was when i figured out how to fix it. The 2nd and 3rd were temporary.(Just needed to be turned off for a moment) You need to shut the console off for atleast 15 minutes 10 at the lowest with everthing unplugged. I mean the hard drive, memory unit, and all cables, and adapters. Then after 10-15 minutes plug everything in and DON'T PRESS the BUTTONS ON THE XBOX OR THE CONTROLLERS. Press the button to open the tray and take out the game or dvd and put in a different one. If this doesn't work do it all over again and then put in a different game or dvd not the previous ones and turn on the console the same but then a soon as you get the disc in and closed in shut it off then open the tray and wait till you are at the main menu go into any program so you can't see it is reading and close the tray. If that doesn't work contact the xbox support line. Really hope this works for you.

My 360 does not read disc, everytime i place disc in ,it says open tray


I fixed this for me today. I opened the tray, and took the disk out. Just inside in the middle there is a small disk that rotates. I just rotated it a little with my finger to get it moving. Once it started spinning the disk tray closed on its own. I then put a disk in and it started reading it. I guess the piece that moves the disk got stiff and just needed some assistance. Hope this helps.

Disk tray is not spinning


The way to fix this is to open the disk tray and blow inside for about thirty seconds getting the dust out of the way of the laser also blow across the disc tray and the surface of the disk. Then keep closing and opening the tray and it will start to read hopefully. if this does not work go out and buy a disc cleaner. it looks like a disc with sponges on it and when you insert it into the console it cleans the inside for you.

My xbox disc drive keeps opening and closeing and wont let me play games


you will need to open this drive and clean the drive belt, or the tracks the tray use as they may be gummed up and dirty.
Open tray error is common, even more so on Samsung drives.

To fix this you usually really need to open your xbox360 so you can get to the disk drive so you can open it for a self-service. BUT first try to fix it with a laser cleaning kit, they don't cost much to purchase and you can get them from most electronic shops and also eBay.

If a cleaning kit did not work, then the problem may be your tracks, the disk spin head or the belt that moves the tray (drive belt).

Once you have your xbox360 opened (lots of good video guides on YouTube on how to open the xbox360) you will have to open your disk drive.

When its open, clean the left and right tracks, they can get gummed up with dust, and even tar if the unit is from a smokers home, when the tracks are dirty, it can stop the tray going in all the way then games don't play. Also if the spin head is dirty (the plate the disk sits on to spin the disk) then it does not grip the disk fully and thus does not spin at full speed, giving you read error. Finally the belt inside the drive can be removed and can be boiled in water for a minute or to, this cleans it and brings it back to its original shape, this helps the belt regain lost grip and can also fix this error your having, but belt problems are more for Samsung drives.

You should use rubbing alcohol to clean the internal components of your drive without causing any damage, you could even clean the laser yourself using a high quality kitchen roll sheet or micro fiber cloth, with rubbing alcohol and gently pass it over the lens to clean it. Once you have done all this, close everything back up and see if the problem is gone.

If your still having problems then chances are you need a new laser for your drive.

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.
