Xbox trouble

Better off going for a replacement DVD as you may never get the drive motor to function normally. Timing is important and alignment super important.

My x box 360 keep saying open tray every time I put a game disc in.what can i do?

Pop off the faceplate look inside the hole on the lower right side
of the cd rom drive if you see a yellow and white wire is a Dg-16d2s Philips
they cost around 35-40.00 new on ebay . If it's two white wires it's a BenQ VAD6038 6038.
Same price. Order it from ebay goto youtube and type" Xbox 360 drive replacement "

When your drive arrives remove the P.C. board from the old drive and plug/solder it
in the new one and it's fix . This is a sure fire-way to get your drive working.

option 2 . is to buy a laser for a ben-Q drive 20.00 and simply swap it out
but this work about 60% of the time since the spindle motor and worm gear motor
will some time be the cause .

If you have any questions please ask before you rate this tip.

Game console will not read disks

Usually the LASER which you can find on ebay for about £10. It is very easy to replace yourself but you will need to know what DVD player is in your console (i.e. Benq, Samsung, Hitachi etc) and it's model number so you will need to take it apart which again is pretty simple. There are many tutorials on this found through Google or on video with You Tube.
Enter the model into the Ebay search box (i.e. BENQ VAD6038 LASER) and click search.
I'm in the UK so seleted 'UK Only' in the search options so I don't got to wait a year for it to arrive and I selected 'price from low to high including postage'.
Try and select a seller with a yellow ribbon 'PowerSeller' status as they tend to want to keep good feedback scores on post things on time and well packaged.
My search found this result:

That will be just the job for that drive and is a cheap fix. Remember this is not hard to do. Just be patient, calm and confident. I have seen a 12 year old do this and fitting instructions usually are supplied. If not Google or You Tube again.

Please rate if this helped.

How to and what programs needed to replace my original samsung drive with my new BenQ VAD6038

The benq is a far superior drive over the samsung. Spoofing the drive is also time consuming and there's a big chance on bricking the drive. If you want a excellent tutorial on how to load the latest ixtreme firmware (ixtreme 1.6) download FrostytheSnowmans mod disc utility. I personally prefe rthe usb modification tool. Both are available on xbins.

What I use:
Frostythesnowmans usb mod tool

Thats the only programs I use.

Frosty's mod tool includes complete detailed instructions on how to do the mod. It's as easy as typing what is already in brackets on the screen. You load the usb drive, coonnect the xbox when it says to, it will them automatically read, mod, erase, and load the new created firmware on the system for you. It's also error proof using a benq drive. One last awesome feature of the program is that you do not need to have the previous firmware backed up to update the firmware, it does it all for you. My personal email address is Email me if you need further clarifacation.

Benq vad6038 blew canned air into unit. unit willnot read disks. unit is removed

The lens may be faulty, you can try a lens cleaner disc, wet/dry it might help, but most likely there is a fault in the lens or other mechanis of the drive. Best to get it serviced, if you have warranty, that will cover the fix.
