My xbox360 wont read disks i have cleaned the lazer and still when i close the disk tray it says reading..... the fans fire up.... the fans cut out and then it says open tray i cant figure it out please...

ok well this is what i did, it may sound crazy but i worked for me and my friends. So, take the disk out of your xbox, plug it out and hold it so that the back of it is facing up to the ceiling, now bang the front, where the disk drive is on the floor, do it twice then turn back on your xbox, do it again if does not work but im sure you will get it :)

My xbox 360's tray wouldn't open today so i tryed to pull it open and now the tray will close and open all the way but it is really lose and it wont read the disk at all if i close it. and the button wont...

You'll have to likely replace the entire DVD-ROM, which is a ***** to have to do. You'll need a 360 one-snap tool (which you can get from eBay, as well as certain other websites) to pop the case open. There's usually 4 screws that mount any DVD or CD ROM into a case.
If it's still under warranty, you can send it to Micosoft and have them charge you an ***-load to do either the exact same thing, or even worse, just replace it and not tell you.

My xbox disk wont read it just keeps sayin open tray and my disk is not scratched

ok i had this too. what you do is take the disk out. then you turn off the xbox. wait for a couple seconds and turn the xbox on. wait until the dashboard pops up and then put the disk in. it should work fine.

What do u do if u x box 360 wont read discs it says reading and then open tray

Hello my friend, Regarding this matter, my recommendation is first try to clean your xbox 360 using cleaner disk. In that way, you can be sure that if next time you insert a disk it surely read unless the disk laser reader is the problem. Then try to insert Disk in your xbox 360 but if it works then try another disk if new disk is better and if you try this step 3 - 4 times then try to contact your supplier or the store that supply's your xbox then ask support or ship it back to them. Also you can find technician to fix your problem but i recommend shipping back the unit to the supplier for futher check up and if the unit is really the problem then they can replaced it.  Hope this matter helps your problem.  If you need more assistance just reply to this post.

Xbox 360 Will Not Play Games....

Try opening the disk tray with the 360 off. 05a1ed9.jpg Push a paper clip into 1 of these holes in your 360. It will pop the tray out. Grab the tray pull it out all the way. Put a game in, leave it open! Then turn your 360 on see if it boots the game.
"Your Disk tray might be going bad. It might be fixable but I will have to try it out on a bad drive which iI dont have at this time."
